Our big family enjoyed a spectacular weekend at Mossy Oaks Lodge. Beautiful home...fantastic views. No one wanted to leave! We would highly recommend both Mossy Oaks Lodge and Manor. This was one of our BEST mini vacations EVER and we hope to return again and again! Marylou is a delight to talk with and we feel like we have a new friend in Hiawassee!
1) Was told RV could get up in there but that is not the case. Very steep, very narrow, some paved and rest is gravel and rutted in places.
2) Web site says Mossy Oaks Lodge is located in Hayesville, NC and is actually in Hiawasee, GA. Website has been incorrect for months.
3) Access to Property is not safe for motorcycles. I checked with 3 different people at realty company who stated it was safe to get up in there. BUT none of the ones I spoke to have ever been up to the location. There are varying degrees of riding ability and it needs to be mentioned that it is not safe but for only expert riders. When someone is coming down that hill or up that hill, there is no room to get out of the way and vehicle has to back all the way up or down. Very dangerous.
4) Bike parking at house is horrible as it had been raining and was muddy mess. Road was rutted due to the rain. Website should be honest and note condition of road for bikers. Several other VRBO sites are honest for bikers. It is important for their safety and appreciated when owners do so. Our safety was jeopardized.
5) Satellite Cable box does not work in the basement. Only one working TV in house.
6) Pool sticks are all broken
7) Ping Pong paddles are all broken.
8) One kitchen chair had leg broken and chair was outside tipped up on front porch.
9) Second kitchen chair had both front lets so wobbly you couldn’t sit on it.
10) Chairs on back porch, 3 are in need of replacement and not safe to sit in
11) Handle broken on Gas Grill
12) Why is realty company handling VRBO and not able to contact owner directly
13) The hot tub only would run for 10 minutes and shut down.
14) The one positive is that the cleaning people do a good job cleaning, great view off the deck, house itself is good.
The home was spacious and the view spectactular. The home was clean with the following exceptions: needed bedding for the futons downstairs, needed more attention to the downstairs bathroom and ceiling fan in the loft for dusting).
We attended a Rally for Motorcyclists and the main complaint with this home would be the driveway. We had people fall due to the gravel and steep narrow curve at the top. The driveway has some pavement and lots of potholes and gravel.
Also when cars are going up or down there is no place for a motorcycle to go but down and over. I would recommend this place if you are driving a car but for motorcycles it became very treacherous especially after the rain. It was a major stress when needing to leave or return to the home. There were about 18 bikers on the hill with 9 bikes with the same consensus regarding the driveway, mis-represented by the owner, who does not ride so really would not know. The lawn guy rode up and down and said it was fine, not sure if he rides a dirt bike or tour bike, makes a big difference.
We all survived the driveway, having a wonderful experience staying together in Hiawasee. The town has lots to do and the surrounding area has wonderful shops and places of interest, the riding was faboulous.
I would not recommend this particular house for bikers due to the driveway, but anyone one else would have a wonderful experience.
The Mossy Oaks Manor was beautiful, excellent taste in decorating and so accomodating for our group of 14. We had everything we needed in the kitchen and the house was very clean. The guys enjoyed the game room as usual. Marylou was nice to meet us prior for us to view property, sent directions prior, and called day of arrival to make sure everything was good for us. I would recommend this property for a family group, girls weekend, or couples outing. We also had a person that was handicapped and with ramps, we provide, was able to get him in the house and the king size room was excellent for he and his wife and easy to get around in the house plus could go out on deck to see the view.
the lodge is very accomidating for large group that we had, gathered for daughters wedding. lodge very relaxing great views enjoyied game room.
The lodge was wonderful, warm, and roomy. The property was as described in the listing. It more than exceeded our expectations. The property was well kept and very clean. The views were awesome. The location was assessable yet allowed plenty of privacy. There were no problems of any kind encountered during our stay. The manager was very helpful to us. We would highly recommend this lodge to others.
