Absolutely gorgeous place, owner super hospitable!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Robbie's place for a long weekend with a group of 12, incl. my daughter Emma (1.5yrs) and our dog (Hungarian Vizsla). We met Robbie a week or so in advance to discuss house rules and he was very helpful with suggestions where to eat, what to do and he spoke proudly and enthusiastic about his house. It was an awesome place, super lovely decorated and a perfectly luxury getaway. Everything, incl. the hot tub was super clean, and Robbie gently checked in with me to hear if anything was OK with us and the house (it was extremely cold and there was a ton of snow). Overall impression of the house is that we will return this next season (all our friends agree!), and we experienced Robbie as a most reliable friendly New Yorker who loves siamese cats just like we do! ;-) No kidding, we love him and his house, recommend to go there if you have a chance.

House is nice. Owner is odd.

Was there for total of four days.He called three days before I arrived and asked that I bring linen (listed as provided) and that I leave a day earlier because he wants to change carpets. (I refused.) While I was there, he called about seven times to say that he is coming to exchange his Mercedes for Porsche (or vice versa ). He then called to say that he is coming at 8 AM to the children's bedroom to pick up his golf clubs.

Been coming to VT for over 20 years. Never experienced anything like it.

There are items on his amenities list that were not there, but that was the least of it.

Owner's Response: Sorry to say, this group damaged my kitchen stove top. The oven also had some food boil over and cook into the ovens bottom. Again, sorry to say the renters came to my home and the group proceeded to enter my home and only one of 12 greeted me and my GF or even made eye contact. The man who posted the review was strange and suffered from some sort of disorder - he wouldn't shake my hand or even look me in the eye. when he did agree to walk with me through the house for a instructional tour he was stopping and proclaiming he didn't need any instructions or tour. lesson learned. This person before rental was very difficult to communicate on the phone and cried poverty when i told him my rental rate. i dropped my rate in order to accommodate this large group. because this man explained that he was a man of religion i felt compelled to help in spite of the odd communication prior to rental. lesson learned, never again to a difficult person from the first phone call.

DO NOT STAY HERE!!! I reserved Robert's house for a surprise for my husband's 30th birthday. It was family members that were coming and we were excited for a nice relaxing weekend in VT. We were flying in from Atlanta and it took us quite some time to get there and money. I had wanted everything to go smoothly as I had been planning this for quite some time. We weren't able to make it in Friday night (we were staying Friday, Saturday, Sunday) because of the snow, but we made it up Saturday afternoon. When we got there Saturday, we noticed that the water was not working at all. Therefore, we could not flush the toilets, cook clean dishes, shower! We also had two small kids in the house and this made it extremely difficult for us. Robert promised to have it fixed that was not. Then, he promised the next was not. He kept on making promises and we had to spend most of our "vacation" shopping for water, trying to melt snow to put it in the toilets in order to flush them, letting repair men into the house, etc. It was NOT relaxing at all and definitely not enjoyable for any of us. The only reason we kept staying is because he kept promising it would be fixed and I would be out $2800. Save yourself the time and don't rent this house. I am sad that I flew all the way to VT for such an unpleasant experience.

I would have expected him to at least repay us for 2 nights of stay, but he refused to do that. He likes to talk in circles and even insinuated that this was OUR fault that the water was not working-how DARE he!

Save yourself the time and anguish and rent another house.

Owner's Response: RENT THIS HOUSE; 'enjoyed, such a nice place to stay' beautiful, spacious' 'wonderful' these are the comments of my renters for THE LAST TEN YEARS, UNTIL NOW. I rented my house to a person against my better judgement. I accepted PayPal for the first time because she said the event was a surprise for her husband. She explained that a check would spoil the surprise. Furthermore she wasn't able to swing the security/deposit. Finally, she convinced me to drop the rental price by 50% for sentimental reasons. I Never suspected that this person would slander me with false accusations after I accepted her personal pleas. Yes, SHE WANTS to KILL my reputation why? On Friday early afternoon the whole of her group arrived to a fully operating house. Saturday late afternoon the water stopped running. This is when SHE AND HER HUSBAND ARRIVED. I immediately contacted a highly regarded well drilling and maintenance company, whom arrived at my home promptly. The problem could have been solved in a matter of hours. But efforts getting to the pump failed because, it was buried under months of ice and snow.   I immediately arranged full access to my neighboring health club (located less than 200 yards from my front door) with indoor heated olympic pool, spa facilities, jacuzzi etc. for the entire group, witch they accepted. This was my sincere effort to ease the burden on them. In the morning heavy equipment was brought in to dig out and access the well and diagnose and fix the issue. Simultaneously a plumbing company and a master electrician were on site trying to fix the issue as well. All three contractors collective efforts was a very a costly weekend emergency. But, I knew my guests comfort to be top priority. The three separate contractors assured me the issue could be diagnosed and fixed that day. Much to my dismay it wasn't to be that day. The problem was fixed the next morning. I offered them an extended stay for no charge, during prime mid winter conditions. They declined. In resolution I mailed her a letter of apology and a check sum of $1,000.00 for the compensation, with the understanding, cashing it was the full settlement. But, in spite top of all my decent offers, this person demanded a full refund in exchange for NOT posting a 'SCATHING' review. BLACKMAIL! Paypal DENIED their claims and sided with me. I did and do sincerely understand the disappointment. Things happen to any one at any time, but, to BLACKMAIL me and LIE after all the my SINCERE efforts?
