Perfect for our Needs& Responsive to Questions

  • 5 of 5

We used this lovely and well-appropriated home for a "Wedding Base Camp" for the Mother & Father of the Bride, being married locally, and four cousin couples. The house is everything the full listing describes....(read it thoroughly! When I see people complaining, the blame is totally on them...everything is fully & accurately described and depicted in the listing!) It was Perfect and as you might assume the open Great Space (kitchen/dining/living) was where we congregated....and out on the deck, too! Yet, anyone wishing to break off for some quiet/nap time had their own place to escape to. Loved the kitchen space ...not a tool/pan omitted. Could be prepping meals and STILL be a part of the conversations. And lastly, any questions unanswered on website, were quickly responded to by John. Everyone agreed, Fern Wooded Splendor added it's own joys to an already Joy-filled wedding weekend. Thank you for making it available on Home-Away!

Great Winter Get Away

  • 4 of 5

Layout was perfect, with 4 bathrooms for 4 couples. Loved the fireplace and wood shed. Location is perfect with Falling Waters, Flight 93 Memorial, Seven Springs, Hidden Valley and Laurel Hill State Park very close to visit. Relaxing place as well.

The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

  • 2 of 5

The good -

It is close to Hidden Valley Ski resort and the shortcut to Seven Springs is the way to go as long as you can make the journey (very bumpy, muddy and lots of potholes) but it does cut it in half.

There are the correct amount of bedrooms as listed in the correct location as described.

The kitchen / living room area / dinning room area is all connected so you always feel like you are part of the conversation.

The basement is large with a ping pong table and plenty of seating.

The garage is heated as mentioned.

The Wi-Fi is strong and Verizon cell service is great here. ATT not so good.

The Bad -

let's start with the bedrooms. The ones in the basement do not have windows at all and only one has a bedside lamp so the other one is all or nothing as far as the lights go. Also the bed sizes are incorrect on the listing since all the beds in the basement are all full size and the one does have a single.

The bedrooms on the main level are a good size with a king master and a queen (a real queen) size.

The upper (kids) bedroom shows 2 bunk beds and a queen but in actuality all the bunks are taken apart so they are all side by side which leaves very little room for moving and the closet space for 6 kids is not enough since the only dresser is unreachable.

Let move on to the garage - it is not attached to the house meaning that you cant go from inside the house into the garage, you have to go from either the front or the back to get to it. this wouldn't have been a big deal if it was mentioned in the listing. This was a very important selling point when we looked at the house so to say that everyone was disappointed at this feature is an understatement.

I was Hoping that the driveway would have been plowed for us since the last snow fall was a day or 2 before we arrived but I had to shovel when I got there so that we didn't track snow into the house but I was already upset about the garage since I planned on parking in there and unloading dry.

The ugly-

There is no way that this house is over 4000SF, maybe 2500 at most. The chimney was great until we started it since the smoke would downdraft into the other flute for the pellet stove in the basement and it would fill the basement with thick smoke and that is where our kids would hang out. the only way to remedy this is to open the back door in the basement but that would make it cold in there and you never knew what if any critters would find their way in.

ran out of characters. sorry

Owner's Response: Sorry you had issues during your stay. I've been renting the house for 10 years and have had 38 positive 5-star reviews - but I guess not all reviews can be good. The Good.... The short cut is over a gravel road and at this time of year can have some pot holes. I don't own the road and I do not manage it. The county owns it and they redo it every spring so I would suspect there are some pot holes by this time of year. The Bad... The bedrooms. Yes - no windows. Didn't state on the website that they had windows? EACH AND EVERY bedroom has a ceiling light and ceiling fan along with a lamp - so don't know why there wouldn't be enough light? Bed sizes - don't know what to say other than I purchased them as queens and I haven't changed them. Bunk beds. We had a suggestion from a renter that had a baby/toddler to turn the two bunk beds into 4 beds since each of the beds have a side railing - which would be safer for younger children. We thought this a good suggestion and thought the room was large enough to accomplish this. Your complaint is the first we've received. That said I will change the ad online to state there are no longer two bunk beds. Garage. Your statements are correct. Garage is heated and dry and this has never been a complaint in 10 years since there is a covered walkway to enter the home? Plowing. I'm scheduled to be plowed with EVERYONE when the main road is done as the same company does the driveways and the road. So don't know why the driveway wouldn't be plowed but the road was? Same company has been plowing for me for 10 years and never a complaint. The Ugly.... As far as the house size - I honestly don't know what to say. I purchased a 4,300 Sq. Ft. home that can hold up to 20 visitors. See the reviews for youth groups that have stayed at the house. Can't fit that many people into a 2,500 Sq. Ft. house? Smoke in the basement. NEVER happened before but yes there was. You called me Friday at 10:30pm and I answered. Had my maintenance man there the next day and he couldn't figure it out. After you left I had my builder look and he told me someone from your group must have played around with the pellet stove and flue. Could have charged you for all the service calls to figure this out. But decided against it to be nice and hopefully obtain yet another repeat customer. After seeing your review - thinking this was a mistake. I hope your next rental from SOMEONE ELSE is more enjoyable. John

Youth Group Ski Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our weekend staying at Wooded Splendor. We arrived late on Friday night and were easily able to find the property using the directions provided in spite of the 6 inches of fresh snow everywhere. The cabin while smaller than places we have stayed in the past, was a good size for our group of 19. The students enjoyed the ping pong table. Getting back and forth to the ski resort was not difficult with our bus even with the new snow each day. The road is fairly flat and a short drive to the entrance of Hidden Valley Resort. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this cabin to anyone coming to the Hidden Valley area.

We rented the house for a small informal family wedding celebration and it was a HUGE success! Everyone had an amazing time. Plenty of space for everyone. Very well kept. The owner is awesome to work with and helped us to make sure we had everything we needed. We will be back!
