Comfortable, spacious and warm
The house looked better in the photos than in reality but it was a very comfortable and clean place to stay. The front of the house with the large front yard looked great but when you parked the car in back, the house looked a little shoddy. The back door was soiled and the side screened-in porch had a door off it's hinges. Upon entering the house the place looked neat. The refrigerator contained many jars and containers which were meant for us to share but we expected it to be completely cleared out. The freezer had a sticky red spill in it and had to be washed out. My wife washed the entire refrigerator because the glass shelves and drawers were not clean. The kitchen cabinets were still filled with the owners groceries so we had to keep our supplies in their cartons and put them in a side office by the back door. The lowest floor had a slight musty smell. Overall, once we got over the hurdles mentioned above, lit the fireplace and started to relax the house became a very comfortable home. The layout was safe especially the carpeted stairs and landings as we have 2 year old twin granchildren. In many of the log homes we've rented, the stairs were very slippery and there was an echo effect with wood floors and tall, tall ceilings so this home was much quieter. The other grandchildren enjoyed the toys and games in the basement. The bathroom and upstairs bedrooms were very clean. We enjoyed our stay there and would consider renting it again.

Owner's Response: I thank the tenants for leaving a detailed review of the house and can only say that we try very hard to make a great first impression. The tenants were refunded the $100 cleaning fee as we felt the frig should have been cleaned out and unfortunatly was overlooked in the house check. I think the review is good overall and the tenants had a wonderful weekend. They also look forward to coming back. I am glad we were able to turn what could have been a uncomfortable situation into a enjoyable family weekend.
