Stayed: September 2012
Comfortable. Lakefront is misleading. Should say across rd. from backwater. Swing needs replacing. Hand towels desperately need replacing! Relaxing place for adults, but I would have been disappointed had we brought the grandchildren as there was not a good place to fish. Two pontoon boats parked at only pier so no place to tie up our boat, so glad we didn't bring it. We had expected to view water from a water front cabin, so view was disappointing. Also sink drains into side of driveway which must be a health hazard. Price was very reasonable, so if you just want a cabin to chill out in for weekend, it's ok.
Owner's Response: Linda,
-I want to thank you for taking the time to provide this review. I value your review as I know your time is precious. I am sorry your stay was not all that you expected it would be. I try very hard to make sure everyone’s stay is special to them so I take your comments to heart. I agree with some of your comments, but disagree with others.
-In regards to the idea of the listing being a bit misleading, I have done my best to put together photos and detailed descriptions that I best represent the house. In addition, I try to talk with every potential guest to make sure my cabin is the right fit for them.
-In regards to your disappointment of the view of the lake from the house, I'm sorry the view was not as you envisioned it. There are photos on my listing taken from the cabin just below the deck which faces the water. This is the exact view you were disappointed with. I feel like if you had seen this photo you would have known exactly what the view would be like here.
-I’m sorry you feel the water is like “backwater”. I assure you the water in this area is not backwater and is part of Lake Guntersville. There are deep spots and there are shallow spots all along the Lake Guntersville. As I told you over the phone, the water is not that deep in this area.
-In regards to your comment about there not being a good place to fish, I recall talking to you about this over the phone. I recall telling you there is a launch for your boat less than 1/2 mile up the road. If you would have brought your fishing boat, you could have fished this entire area. There are plenty of fisherman that fish in this area all the time and talk about how good the fishing is.
-In regards to your comment about being glad you did not bring your grandchildren, I will say that plenty of people have brought their kids and grandkids in the past and have had fun.
-In response to your comment about the hand towels, I typically swap the older towels out with newer towels when the older ones have gotten too old. Also, I hold the bath towels to a higher standard than the hand towels that are typically just used to clean dishes with.
-In closing I would like to state the main reason I rent this cabin is simple. I want to give others the opportunity to stay in a cabin on the lake for an affordable price. I hope in the future that you find a cabin to better suite your needs.
