You get what you pay for
I was very dissatisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
I was more than happy with the location.
The vacation rental was somewhat dirty.
The property manager was somewhat unhelpful.
Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental.
We have rented many vacation homes. This one was the first big bummer. For starters, we did not gather from the online posting that it is a duplex. That was a surprise when we pulled up. The beer can, cigarette butts and bag of dog poop outside were a surprise too. While full of potential, the unit is quite dated and cluttered with abundant decorative items. The stove burner catch bowls were so crusted over that at least two of them smoked when you turned on the stove. The linoleum in the bathroom and base boards were in desperate need of a good scrubbing. The ice maker doesn't work. The clothes dryer is on its last leg. It's clear that this is a dog friendly property. The ashes in the wood-burning stove were piled up which made it hard to start a fire.
In its defense, I will add, it was very inexpensive. But I suppose the money we spent staying out of it offset the savings. The location was also convenient and having an empty lot next door with nothing but trees and snow was enjoyable. Finally, the beds were comfortable and the black out curtains made for good sleeping in. The people at Accommodation Station were very friendly and helpful during the booking process, but we were unable to reach them our first full day in the property when it became apparent that a number of lightbulbs didn't work and no dish soap was left. We were also left with very old and ratty dish washing sponges and the dishwasher in this home is only half-sized, so it was difficult to clean up. In the end, the AS people did refund a portion of the cleaning fee, so that helped offset the sting of a disappointing stay.
