All the basics, but a bit run down

  • 4 of 5

The cabin looked a bit run down with stains on the ceiling, a broken lamp in bedroom, and minimal lighting during the evening hours. However, the house had all the basic things we needed for our stay. The heater kept the house warm, the shower worked well, and the beds were comfortable with extra bedding available. The kitchen was stocked with a decent number of plates, cups, and utensils, but only minimal pots and pans.

Bare bones - no driveway, minimal heat - good spot

  • 3 of 5

I will be honest and say that this is one of the cheaper vacation rentals that was available but even at that rate, I know that I would never recommend this vacation rental to a friend. Let's start with the positives:

- cool location in Moonridge, close to Bear Mountain

- nice backyard with a small hill for sledding

- good sized rooms

- the bathroom has recently been re-done and the shower is nice and warm

Now for the negatives:

- When we pulled up to the property, we had our first negative experience. The "driveway" was not shoveled before we arrived. We attempted to get our car up the slight include and got stuck. My husband had to get out and shovel the snow from our driveway before we could safely pull our car into the unpaved, muddy driveway. Keep in mind that it had not snowed for 5 days so the property management company clearly did not do its job.

- The house itself looks like a shack that you would see on a frozen lake if you were to go ice fishing.

- It was freezing cold when we entered (as opposed to my parent's cabin rental that was nice and warm when they arrived) and we had a hard time staying warm in the beds at night. There is a heater that keeps the living room and kitchen moderately warm but no heater in the bedroom with a king bed and just a small personal heater in the other bedroom that does not really heat the whole room.

- The beds and pillows are very uncomfortable (I woke up in pain multiple times a night) and the bedding itself looks pretty gross. - -

- The kitchen is small but has enough dishes, silverware, etc. for the number of guests who can fit in the cabin. However, there is no kitchen or dining room table with chairs, just TV trays.

I have never written a negative review on any website or social media before but I just can't possibly see how this rental cabin is rented for the amount we paid. I would warn people against this property as it's not even a great place to lay your head at the end of a long day of skiing or snowboarding.

Update

  • 2 of 5

I don't remember the exact date but the experience was very very bad I was going to take an action but then I just let it go the bedrooms were very dirty the price for the cabin was very high . the bed sheets had stains the was the one of the worst experience of my life . I had my family and it was a big embracement in front of children and wife . the location was good the cabin was good too but the housekeeping job was worst you should change beds .
