Nice home but pricey, some ticky tacky comments to follow..

  • 4 of 5

Overall good experience. However the house had about 8 light bulbs that were out which made walking around at night a little difficult. The "instruction folder" was outdated so we didn't know how to connect to wifi or work any of the TV's. The house is actually listed for sale right now so maybe less attention is being paid to it by the owner. I added the "romance package" because it was my wife's birthday and they didn't have flowers or chocolates set up when we arrived. If you do add anything on I would call "Cool Cabins" ahead of time to confirm they received your request. Lastly, we texted as instructed after we got back on the road to home about our check out (at 8:30am) and I received a call at 2pm (I was at my open house in Orange county) from the admin that because we had not asked for a late and were still at the house we were going to be charged extra. Not sure if there was some kind of misunderstanding because I double checked the number we text and it was the correct one that we gave us. Don't mean to be too negative because the home was actually pretty nice, close to the Village (long walk though would suggest Uber) and was very well maintained with a fun garage that had Foosball and Pool. Some minor details that could make this a 5 star rental pretty easy.... Hope this helps !!

A wonderful place for us and out pets!

  • 4 of 5

The property was perfect for my mom and I and our 3 dogs. The front porch light didn't always work, but I think it was user error.

We cooked Thanksgiving dinner, and found every thing we needed to cook.

We'd gladly stay there again

Perfect with all the amenities - Centrally Located

  • 5 of 5

We loved the home. Perfect space for a family of 5. The kids loved playing pool in the garage. The snow-filled backyard was perfect for our dog. We cooked, made a fire, BBQ'd outside and filled up the tub with a bubble bath. Great memories made and we didn't have to travel far to ski and go tubbing. Everything was clean. Definitely planning on staying again!

Clean and great location, few mishaps

  • 3 of 5

Overall we had a nice stay at the Fox Paw! The neighborhood is great with prime location to checkin and the Village / marina.

The Pros:

- Clean

- Well equipped kitchen

- Fun game room in garage

- Prime location

- Spacious rooms

The Cons:

- Pillows were very uncomfortable, bring your own!

- The "second bedroom" does not have a full wall - it has a large cut out that looks down onto the family room so noise and morning light carry through.

- The master bedroom has a large slider out to a balcony, which is great! But, the white sheet curtains in place offer no filter to the constant street light and headlights shining in lighting up the room numerous times per hour through the night, making it difficult to fall asleep.

- Creeky master bedroom floors make walking without waking up the kids in the loft a tricky task!

Overall our experience was positive with quick responses to a service need we had and overall property cleanliness was great. The negative feedback are all items which can be enhanced to provide a more enjoyable experience as they are likely overlooked during the daytime hours.

Nice "cabin", but room for improvement

  • 4 of 5

This is a great cabin, but there are some things that need fixing....

1 - The garage door is misaligned and there's a 2" gap at the bottom, on the left side. This would SUCK during the winter snow!

2 - The barbecue's charcoal bin has rotted and fallen apart, it would need to be replaced before it can be used.

3 - The door stopper in the second upstairs bathroom (with the tub/shower combo) is poorly placed in front of the toilet, stepped on it a few times. Sort of dangerous!

4 - Some of the light switches don't seem to do anything (minor concern, all the lights seemed to turn on)

Other than that, it was a wonderful cabin to stay in!

Be sure to check out Teddy Bear Cafe in the Village for breakfast! Awesome food. Also try Grizzly Manor Cafe. Giant pancakes, good diner food. Staff is fun there, but only if you like being playfully jabbed (verbally) and the like; think trucker or lumberjack personalities.
