Guestbook comments from the owner

All of our family enjoyed the cabin. It was spacious and all of us had plenty of room. The teenagers especially enjoyed the game room with the ping pong and

pool table for a little family competition. Every night we hung out on the main deck cooked and enjoyed the views and the stars. He were close to Helen and went in town one day to go shopping, we mostly enjoyed just being together at the cabin. I would definitely visit again and will recommend to friends. We give it 5 Stars

Spacious Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our cabin getaway was perfect for our families! We liked that the bedrooms were spread out on 3 levels to give everyone their space. At the same time, we all could be together in the game room and the living room. There was enough seating for everyone in both rooms which is a plus! The open floor plan was great for us all to be together. The cabin was clean and we had everything we needed. The views out the front windows was Awesome! We seen a rainbow the morning we left, how cool! Sandy, the owner, was great. She was quick to respond to any questions we had.

Stay FAR FAR away!!!

  • 1 of 5

Pros: The cabin is big. Nice views.

Cons: The cabin is dated. The couch is broken & pool table & ping pong table are old. Don't book in winter. If there is any ice you won't be able to get up the driveway due to several hills. We had ice and had to leave our car halfway down the drive & carry our luggage the rest of the way slipping and falling. The biggest downside of this cabin is the owners. Short story: there was no power in the cabin for our stay and the owner refuses to refund our money. Long story: The power went out 9:30 Friday night, our first night there. Usually, a rented cabin would be fitted with a generator; this cabin is not. The temps were below freezing but we couldn't leave due to hazardous road conditions. The fireplace was not sufficient. Saturday the power was still out. We waited for the power to return but it never did. Since the temps would be in the 20s that night, & there was no heat, we were forced to return home. We kept an eye on the online power outage map that night & into Sunday morning to see if the power was ever returned. It was not. When I asked for a refund for Saturday night the owners refused. They told me the power company called them & told them the power was restored Saturday. I took pictures of the online outage map to show them the power had not been returned for that address. They then told me they called the power company and were told the power was turned back on Saturday. This sounded fishy, so I called the power company & they said the power was not returned to that address until 6:30 pm Sunday. I confronted her with this & she told me she personally went to the cabin Saturday to decorate for Christmas & the power was on. So, she was clearly lying, again, because the power company just told us there was no power Saturday, AND if she did go to the cabin while we had it rented she clearly violated VRBO rules. So which is it, did the power company call her, did she call the power company, or did she witness the power on herself? The owner is still refusing to refund our money. Any place you stay would refund your money without thought if they could not provide power and heat, but this owner feels it is completely within her rights to charge us to stay in an uninhabitable cabin. The best she could offer me was a free night if I booked a 3 night stay during the off season, which is standard practice in Helen. I am having to take them to small claims court to get my money. I regret the day I booked this.

Owner's Response: This guest checked in on the Friday night. She called Saturday to let me know the power went out due to the weather in our area. We have two real wood burning fireplaces and supply firewood for our guest. Guest sent me an email letting me know, that since the other guest were not able to attend they chose to leave . I do not offer refunds for no shows, early departures or due to the weather. I did offer her a free night she could use with her next visit. VRBO and HomeAway sites offer travelers insurance for last minute cancellations and 100% refunds. This guest chose not to purchase insurance..She filed a complaint thru VRBO. VRBO dismissed her complaint. She then chose to list this review. If you need additional information please just give me a call. Sincerely Sandy Shuey

This was a beautiful cabin with a beautiful view. The cabin was clean and stocked with everything we might need to feel at home. The bedrooms were large and the beds were comfortable. It was minutes away from all of the attractions in Helen. My family of six had a wonderful time.

Thanks Sandy
