We found this home online after a home that we had previously reserved fell through. We were so happy that the other house didn't work out because this one is great. Carol and Amy were helpful before and during the stay and even assisted by returning some items that we had left in one of the drawers. The description said that everything is big in Texas and they aren't kidding. We couldn't believe how big everything is and our kids went crazy in the game room. The kitchen had everything we needed and more. We kept opening cabinets to find more and more. We planned to go out to dinner a few nights and just ended up staying home and enjoying the house. We'll be back.
Large Home in nice area with very poor up keep.
Multiple windows, doors, blinds didn’t operate well or at all. Range and range hood in poor shape and did not function well. Basement bath and couple other areas smelled terribly of mold. Hottub was over 6” out of level so when four people got in it would drain so much water that if one person got out the jets would be above the water line. It would have to be refilled after they got out rendering it useless for over an hour until the cold water was heated up. Foosball table was broke and air hockey barely worked. Cleaning crew or previous renter left cigarettes and butts in several places and also a bag of marijuana n pipe. We had three young children in our group- not good. While sitting on deck enjoying view a couple in our group had a large amount of snow and ice slide off metal roof and missed them by inches. No warning and it landed entirely on deck. This was enough snow ice to seriously injure someone had it hit them. I live in MN so I know what a large amount of heavy snow is. I could go on but the pattern was the same. This is all unfortunate as the views from this place are amazing and access to multiple ski resorts is great.
Our small company takes pride in our homes and our responsiveness. We are heartsick that one of our guests was so unhappy, but this review completely mischaracterizes the condition of our house and its amenities. I believe that much of it stems from finding marijuana in the house ~ that’s very upsetting. While we have no excuse that our cleaners didn't find and remove the prior guests’ items before this arrival, it doesn't exemplify the overall condition of the home. In almost 8000 sf of home filled with nooks and crannies, this can happen. I understand. When my children were small, this would have upset me and tainted the stay ~ as it did for this guest.
This guest did contact us about 3 windows (of more than 50) at the beginning of the stay. Rapid freeze/thaw sometimes makes a few difficult to close, leaving a hairline crack. We are scheduled to repair/replace windows/blinds in the Spring, but we wanted the guest to be comfortable. We didn’t dismiss the concern, simply welcomed him to use more heat if needed.
We heard nothing else during this guest’s visit until we read this review.
Snow blocks on the roof would not allow snow and ice to fall off in a sheet as described ~ snow falls off, but we have safeguards in place so that large amounts of snow or sheets of ice can't fall in one place. The hot tub was replaced in 2017 and is professionally maintained. A call to us would have had the hot tub maintenance crew on the scene to resolve any issue. It's true that two cans and some cigarette butts appeared with the melting snow during the guest’s stay. This winter has been extremely challenging with inconsistent temperatures ~ snow usually builds up and covers our guests' indiscretions until mud season when we can remove anything left behind during the winter.
The stove is being replaced in the Spring, but the existing one is functional and clean. The games were in working order and we wish we could have offered instruction. Most inaccurate was the description of the mold smell. Our caretaker is extremely sensitive to any molds ~ a whiff and she is the canary in the mine. She found nothing upon checkout, but we have added routine ozone treatments to our routine.
This review breaks my heart. We always want happy guests and go above and beyond to care for our homes and the people in them. We wish that we would have been given the chance to respond to concerns during the stay rather than responding after the fact in this way.
the best place to stay
loved every single thing of it. the owners are great as well
Great spot for a big group!
This is a large, lovely house set in a spectacularly beautiful spot that is great for a large group. The house is amazingly well stocked with multiple toasters, coffee makers, dishwashers crock pots and just about anything else you could ever want.
I was there with six college friends, spouses and children. There are more than enough common spaces for folks to spread out and relax without feeling like you are on top of each other. Plus, with nine bedrooms, many with multiple beds, everyone had a cozy spot to call their own.
We were there for skiing. The house is about 12 minutes from Keystone's Mountain House base area. We had cars, so it was easy enough to get up and down between the house and the mountain. Even on the MLK holiday weekend, we never had trouble parking at the base area.
The house, furniture and fixtures are all generally in good condition and all functional. Certain things around the house could use a refresh, including some of the bathrooms and the range in the kitchen, but to dwell on that would be nitpicking a wonderful house that is in a great spot for a beautiful getaway.
Finally, and most importantly, Carol was an absolute pleasure to deal with. She was accommodating and responsive whenever we had a question or needed anything, even late in the evening. Thank you, Carol, for helping to make this a wonderful trip!
Garnett Family Vacation
Twenty-seven family members ages three to sixty-two spent a week of skiing, home cooked meals and fun. The house was large enough for all to have a place to sleep and plenty of bathrooms. The kitchen was well stocked and there was extra of everything: coffee pots, towels, pillows, and humidifiers. This is our second time to stay here, and we will be back.
A beautiful home for large groups!
This house was just fantastic. I have the opportunity to visit a lot of vacation rental homes in my line of work, and this was truly a wonderful property away from the tourist crowds. It has beautiful views of the mountains overlooking the golf course along with luxurious furnishings. Often owners of large rental homes buy Target quality furniture- not that there's anything wrong with that. But each room here had unique pieces and/or antiques. The bedding, pillows and towels were also very nice quality. I loved the huge upstairs gathering room and the bar/ gameroom downstairs, but we also had privacy in each bedroom. Thank you to the owner, Carol for our warm welcome and memorable stay!
