Nice Yard and View - Dirty Cabin
Submitted: August 2, 2012
Stayed: July 2012
We stayed at the cabin on a rainy weekend in July. When the rain stopped, we enjoyed the cabin very much. The view of the river is lovely from the spacious deck, and there is a big open yard for playing.
However, we were extremely underwhelmed by our experience when we were stuck indoors. The cabin was very dirty. The wall-to-wall carpet is stained and old, and we could not find a vaccuum cleaner in the house, despite the instructions to clean up after ourselves. The furniture is old and dingy. But the worst part is the dirty kitchen and bathroom. We had to clean the kitchen for a full hour before being able to use it, and we kept our shoes on in the bathroom because the floors were so dirty. Plus there's no shower curtain, so if you shower using the hand held shower head, the bathroom inevitably gets soaked leading to more cleaing. From what we can tell, the owner does not hire a cleaning service. I hope he will reconsider because the house is nice but desperately needs a scrub down and I prefer not to clean other people's homes on my weekends away.
Another problem is that the boat is covered in overgrowth, under the deck, and extremely heavy, which meant we weren't able to use it. Even if you did, it would be difficult to get it down to the water because there is a 5 foot or so drop-off from the walkway to the river shore. (It is possible to hop down and climb back up if you want to swim.)
Despite the enjoyable outdoor space, I would not recommend this cabin. We are two couples in our early 30s and not terribly sensitive to grime -- we usually camp on our weekends in the mountains -- so I don't think our expectations were too high.
