An Honest and Accurate Review.

  • 2 of 5
This is an old farmhouse not a suite at the Ritz. It IS clean but does have some deferred maintenance such as exterior peeling paint. The deck boards are old but are not weak or dangerous. The house has a musty smell which could be controlled by use of a dehumidifier in the basement...there was NO MOLD found anywhere. The creek running through the front yard is nice. Although the interior of the home was quite clean we had a problem with bugs. In an old farmhouse you can expect to find a few spiders and ants but there was quite a few large black ants...the real problem was the roaches though. We captured a roach alive to show the manager. After contacting the property manager the owners promptly arrived with insecticide to try to get rid of them. They said this was the first time anyone reported roaches in the house. They said it was just a wood roach and is nothing to worry about. They left the spray in case we saw more. Well, the next day we found one crawling in the silverware drawer. I contacted the manager and advised this was not acceptable. I asked for alternate accommodations but she said nothing was available. Monday morning I made some calls and found a cottage in Elk Rapids. I then contacted the owner and advised that we were going to leave because of the roaches and asked for a refund. He had the manager call me back to offer a partial refund and we negotiated and settled for a pro-rated refund. I did some roach research and most of the roaches we found did appear to be FEMALE wood roaches which reportedly are never found indoors. I believe if the owners hire a professional exterminator AND begin running a dehumidifier in the basement the roaches will not be attracted to return to the home...it will also reduce the musty smell. The manager and owners were polite and apologetic for the inconvenience.

Dump House!

  • 1 of 5
This is an extremely filthy, unsafe and unkept house that was not advertised truthfully. This house should not be rented to anyone due to the poor maintenance and safety hazards. Besides the fact that it is extremely dirty, it has safety issues ranging from very poor wiring to rotted out wood on the deck. It has chipped and peeling paint that is visible everywhere (not sure if it is lead paint), the entire house is full of mold, it has open ended wiring and uncovered electric boxes. The house is held up by tree trunks in the basement! It lacks basement windows and has torn screens throughout the house. There are holes around the decking making it unsafe to step on or off to the yard (which has weeds and grass taller than the deck). There were not any working smoke detectors in the house. We had to abort our vacation and leave due to the condition of the rental, and did not get fully reimbursed. The owner was rude. DO NOT RENT THIS PROPERTY!
