Amazing weekend

  • 5 of 5

My huge family decided to go away for a weekend and we found this great home on I must say the house was big enough for everyone to have privacy. The huge dining table was great for big family dinners which we enjoyed for both breakfast and dinner. The pool table area and movie theater was were we spent most of our nights hanging out. The memories that we made their will last us a lifetime. The owner Micheal, worked with us on payment arrangements and even allowed us to check out later on Sunday which was great, not having to rush out and hit the road so early in the morning.

nice location, but unresponsive owner. just avoid

  • 1 of 5

They admitted they turned the house over too quickly and didn't really clean it. We spent our whole first day cleaning it and reported issues to the owner who replied days later. The septic backed up and we were forced to move (too bad when we told him it smelled and the toilets and faucets ran slow, no one cared). We moved to his other house which was smaller and were given no consessions for having to then clean a second filthy house. Then he charged us a $20 extra car fee- we only had 4 cars and were allowed 5. He finally admitted it was a clerical error but never refunded that either. It's a nice area and we .Andre the best of it, but there are a lot of places to stay and I'd avoid this place and his other homes as well. Maybe he's still out fishing 6 months later and that's why I haven't received my security refund he held in error...? Aside from the fact the cleaning service gave us towels that smelled of smoke that we had to take to the laundry mat to wash (because we were afraid to use his washing machine. Rightfully so since we came back to a septic backup). It's a house. Things inevitably go wrong, but as an owner you know people are on vacation and you need to make right if your house has an issue. Needless to say we won't be back.

Owner's Response: Notice the date of this response and the one from Monica two above. They were one day apart and are polar opposite reviews. I am the only constant in this equation so take this review for what it is.. THAT SAID- We Did our best to make this family happy. YES our people said they did not have time to clean properly but that was because this guest ARRIVED TWO HOURS EARLY!!! for their rental and started emptying their vehicles while the cleaning crews tried to do there job. The guests kept loading the kitchen with food boxes and bags before we could properly get to everything. We also have an inspection duo that does a final walk thru before the guests arrive to make sure everything is alright, but they were unable to do so with 20 people and luggage around. Yes there was a septic backup.. but she failed to mention in her review that when the alarm went off they turned it to silent and ignored it. When they finally did call ME I was 40 miles offshore fishing as she says. There is a phone number posted next to the alarm which they failed to call. That is a direct line to the septic company. Had they called that when the alarm went off initially we would have had no issue. After finally speaking with her I had the septic company come out. there was a pebble stuck in the pump. an easy fix but by now the water had backed up into the house and the carpet was wet so we needed to move them to another house. We also offered free towel service and trash removal service for their trouble. Which I'll say again, could have been avoided altogether if they did not ignore the initial alarm and called me right away. The house we moved them to is bigger than the first but a different layout. It is 4 stories with spectacular views. It is our personal favorite house and the one we try to stay in when we go up. We RARELY get cleaning issue calls and we do over 100 rentals per year. 6 calls per year would be high and ultimately it is an honest mistake that led to the problem. As far as cutting off contact goes. There comes a point when you simply cannot argue with someone any longer. We Gave her free trash service. Free towels and bed linens. offered 10% discount on a future rental. But she still wanted to yell and scream. Not sure what makes people who they are but this was an ordeal that could have easily been avoided. I didn't even mention the Chemdry carpet cleaning and replacement bill as well as the septic bill I received.

We stayed at one of Michael's other places last year (which was great too) and decided to try another since we had loved the other one so much plus the great customer service we had received... This place was 5 star too. Love the layout, the hot tub, the amazing table to sit for meals. We have 6 couples that go and having a meal together is very important to us. There are many places that can fit you for sleeping but not for dining. I recommend this highly! Enjoy.

Ideal home for large groups

  • 5 of 5

We were thrilled to use this home to celebrate my father's 80th birthday. We were 27 in total, including my parents, children, nieces, nephews and significant others and were pleasantly surprised to find plenty of room to fully enjoy our weekend. Our 9 cars fit easily in the driveway without blocking each other in. Everyone was able to socialize on the spacious deck, as well as have the ability to sneak away to our own space for some privacy when needed. We enjoyed meals together, and then headed out in different directions to hike, shop, play golf or just enjoy the beautiful fall scenery. The home itself was clean and well stocked with supplies; we appreciated the extras such as spices and paper goods left by previous renters, but also felt the basics were covered by the home owner Michael. We did encounter a few questions and dilemmas, but Michael was readily available by cell phone to help us through. We had a wonderful weekend and I thoroughly endorse this rental.

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

Rented this cabin for a few days in August from Michael, who was extremely helpful and was available to answer any questions at any time throughout the whole process. Great to work with!!! I had a large group of people and everyone was extremely happy and comfortable. The place was as described. The big projection screen TV was a wonderful addition to the house and worked great for a big group of people and so did the hot tub. I would recommend this house to anyone.

Beautiful Log Home inside and out!!!

  • 4 of 5

First of all, let me say that the owners are VERY accomidating. Dealing with a large family group coming from 5 different states was very difficult, getting all the necessary information together, but the hosts were patient as I got everything necessary together.

The log cabin was immaculate. Very spacious from the movie room to the dining table, which is a great hangout spot to share stories. Loved the deck and BBQ grills to sit out, watch the deer and wildlife. Only down drawback was the adjacent neighbor, who expects quiet and lights out at 10 PM :(

All in all a great home for a large group.

Owner's Response: Hi, Another GREAT review. We take pride in our homes and appreciate when people acknowledge so. Our community have an 11pm. noise restriction. our neighbor across the street has since been set straight by security and no longer asks for quiet by 10pm Good news is he is moving in September.
