This house was our family home for 4 years. We had very enjoyable times here and space was never a problem for entertaining many guests.

Heidi purchased this house in 2003

Great for large groups from retreats to family reunions. Quiet neighborhood, short walk to town center's shops and restaurants, park, church, and club house (golf/tennis/pool).

Upgraded large kitchen open to dining and living rooms (all entertaining in one great room), three fireplaces, flat back yard for games and even weddings, beautiful sunsets from large rear deck. Short walking distance to all town amenities and hiking trail.

NICE CABIN FOR OUR RETREAT

  • 5 of 5
We were very comfortable with all the amenities for our company retreat. Nice, clean, and well decorated mountain retreat with ample space for our large group. The single story worked well for one of ours that was on crutches. Would certainly recommend this place for any large group!

FANTASTIC WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful stay at this spacious home in Pine Mountain - many bedrooms to choose from, nicely furnished and very clean and organized. We loved the open kitchen/living room and eating on the patio and the kids loved the swing and the yard (and the tv). The owners were very helpful and gave us great ideas about things to do in Pine Mountain Club (great hikes nearby!). We will definitely be back! Thank you!

Owner's Response: Thanks and bring those kids back in the winter to snow play and sled. Instead of hiking, I'll direct you to cross country skiing trails at Mt. Pinos.

WE COME HERE EVERY YEAR!

  • 5 of 5
Heidi's retreat has been such a welcoming place for our youth ministry. We come every year now! It's always easy to get into, and the house is always clean when we come! If you have a large family or large group, this place is perfect for your needs.

Owner's Response: We just love groups like yours. I'm so happy you provide the youth this leadership retreat. I'm sure it's a lot of work to organize and teach.....they must already be looking forward to next year's trip to Pine Mountain. Maybe a winter retreat next time so they can experience the snow & freezing temperatures outside.
Thanks for leaving the house so nice and clean, too.

HEIDI'S RETREAT

Heidi's retreat
  • 3 of 5
Kitchen has a well laid out work area and the deck was a great gathering place.
Plenty of bathrooms for our group of 15.
Clubhouse facilities were great to have as option.
The house itself was not clean enough for the group's standards. Lots of thick dust on all surfaces, cobwebs in every corner, windows were dirty and cupboards and drawers in the kitchen looked like they hadn't been wiped out in a very long time.
Internet was VERY unreliable.
One of the master suites had no door...the only privacy from the rest of the house was a curtain.
The water in the bathrooms took an unreasonable amount of time to get hot and then the showers didn't hold a consistent temperature, so most of the time in the showers was spent readjusting the knobs...lots of wasted water.

Owner's Response: We value our guests' opinions very much and try to improve from them. But we have NEVER had complaints like this before. A huge majority of our renters leave A+ comments in our guest book but unfortunately don't post them here.
To respond to your opinions; The house is professionally cleaned after each rental and ready for the next. In your case it was cleaned 3 days prior to your arrival. If this is enough time to cover everything in thick dust, we may have to change the schedule ;) There may always be some dust lingering and landing during a few days even in an empty house, but your exaggeration is unbelievable. I personally cleaned off all the cob webs I saw (only a few) just two weeks prior to your stay....spiders may be busier in the spring than typical, but I don't think it's possible they built a web into every corner in such a short time especially since we rarely encounter a spider inside the house???
There is a full description of the house room by room online to review prior to rental; the curtain to one of the large master suites is thick and provides plenty of visual privacy. We took out the door in the hall to gain a feeling of openness and to create the small play area for kids in the hall. This bedroom has been called a favorite room by some as it has vaulted ceilings, nice wall paint colors, art work, fireplace, huge bath and walk-in closet, direct entry to the outdoor deck w/ a view of beautiful sunsets over the mountains.
The windows are cleaned on a rotational basis weather permitting (this was an unusually cold spring and we just had snow in early May) and not always spotless for each rental. We want to keep our renters' cleaning fee reasonable, too.
Hot water is provided by two large water heaters one at each end of the house to ensure that a house this size has adequate hot water. We have taken hundreds of showers in the house and never experienced the water temperature fluctuating. One shower and two sinks are directly above one of the water heaters as others are further. Therefore, the time to receive hot water varies from a few seconds up to 90. This is typical in any house and not unreasonable per any building standards.
Pine Mountain is a rural community and only two small internet companies provide service. We get better service than most in town due to our central location. I'm sorry you had spotty service during one of the four days you spent at the house.

GREAT FAMILY RETREAT

  • 4 of 5
We had a wonderful family gathering right after Christmas. The cabin had everything necessary for a good stay. There were very few steps to navigate to get from the ample parking area into the house. Every thing was clean and worked properly. Heidi was great to work with and was on site when we arrived to make sure everything was ready for our stay. The cabin was close to town and hiking trails. We had a great visit and will undoubtedly rent this cabin again. The only down side was we didn't get any snow but maybe next time.

Owner's Response: Thank you and I am so glad you had a wonderful time regardless of the lack of snow. This was the first time in the 10 years we've owned the house that there was no snow during the Holiday Season. We did get it in November this time and it was record breaking cold then. But great for people like us; we play beach volleyball in January. LOL.

PLENTY OF ROOM/BAD CARPET

  • 4 of 5
This cabin suited my family perfectly over the Christmas holiday as there were enough beds and bedrooms for everyone. The owner also decorated the cabin for Christmas and even put up a Christmas tree, which was wonderful. I was under the impression that the guest unit was somehow accessible from the main floor, but you have to go down the stairs from the back deck or around the front to access it. However, it was equally comfortable for my family members. One of the master bedrooms does not have a door; only a curtain for privacy.
Unfortunately, during our visit, the refrigerator broke and was not keeping our groceries cold. Although the owner worked at remedying the problem, it was a huge inconvenience for us. The owner did allow us access to the refrigerator in the garage, but going in and out of the garage for our food was not ideal. In addition, the phone calls from the three different 'fix it' men were annoying. We understood that this was an unforeseen issue, and I only mention it because the owner later informed me that the refrigerator was not replaced. She stated that it just needed to rest for a few days and is working fine now. I hope so! My small complaint about the cabin was the bed sheets were in poor condition. There were holes in almost all of them. And, twin sheets were provided for queen beds in both master bedrooms. My biggest complaint is that the red living room couch is significantly dirty and the carpet in the entire cabin had stains all over it. I have twin toddlers, so I'm used to dirty and messy, but this was on a whole different level. I understand that it is a pet friendly rental, but it appears as though it is in need of being replaced immediately or at least a deep cleaning. All in all though, my family and had a great visit and would stay at this cabin again, providing the carpet was fixed.

Owner's Response: I do decorate for each holiday and if I know someone in the group has a birthday; a happy birthday flag will greet you.
Thanks for the pretty honest review....you are indeed talking about the great room/dining carpet...it had become beyond cleaning by our many renters. Our last carpet cleaning lasted 2 weeks/2 groups. That floor was replaced by washable wood-look flooring. Carpet was a mistake in an eating area. The new flooring was my goal before the winter season but the refinishing of the back deck and leveling the back and side yard was much more work & expense than expected.
Most of the sheets were just replaced last week (some fitted sheets did have ripped corner seams from being yanked off the beds, but no holes). I marked them all, so our housekeeper can place them for right beds.
The refrigerator was replaced right after your visit and we now have three as the previous one works fine. I think our house serving such large groups gets the brunt of the wear too. Main thing is that everyone says the house is great and they had a wonderful time!
