Beautifully built but not secluded as we expected.

  • 3 of 5

While the cabin is beautifully built and furnished, it is not secluded on a property away from noise and away from others as the pictures show. Behind the cabin is another larger cabin for renters. While this was not so much a problem, the Orndorff Cabin sits about 100 yards away from a very busy road. All through the night, and especially in the early morning, there was loud traffic keeping us up and waking us up as early as 6am. Huge triaxle trucks and semis fly down this road and you can imagine how loud that becomes for those staying inside the cabin trying to sleep. A nice aspect of Orndorff is that it is 5 minutes from "downtown" Ohiopyle and 10 minutes from Frank Lloyd Wright's Falling Water and Kentuck Knob. These features, however, do not make up for the fact that we did not get the restful, peaceful sleep we were looking for when trying to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city...it felt like we were at home on the busy intersection where we live. While beautiful, we would not return to the Orndorff cabin.

Reviewer Comments:

Great place, clean, odor-less, all amenities were in great condition. AC blasted cool air, this was perfect. The shower was clean and had plenty of hat water. The grill was magnificent. Only negatives were parking. We had to park so close to the cabin, we were on top of our vehicles. Additional parking should be established on the other side of the driveway.

Reviewer Comments:

The location and cleanliness of the cabin was great! The only complaint I have is that the electric stove wouldn't work and all the light bulbs on the porches were burnt out. It's not a big deal but when you're at one of the more expensive cabins in Ohiopyle you expect everything to be perfect. You're supposed to get what you pay for....

Reviewer Comments:

We brought food to cook in during most of our visit. The toaster didn't work. We originally thought the oven didn't work, until we realized on day two that the breaker wasn't on. We couldn't get the heat to turn on in the bedrooms. We called the office twice and were told we would receive a call back. We never received a call back.

Reviewer Comments:

Started out badly - ended up worse!

1. Trying to book the cabin 2 months prior to intended arrival - Nobody answered the phone in 6 attempts I made. A recorded message promised a return call. I left messages 3 times, but nobody ever called. Ended up booking the place up via a third party.

2. The exorbitant US$1000 rental fee (just 3 nights) was charged to my credit card ~2 months and one month ahead of arrival.

3. The OVR management conveniently makes all renters sign a contract precluding any refund, no matter how justified.

4. On the OVR website, the cabin is depicted as isolated cabin, while in reality it is only <50 feet (15m) away from the region's main highway, while on the other side it is <30 feet(~8m) away from a large rental house.

5. The cabin's user info was promised to be sent a week prior to arrival. Only following a reminder email 5 days prior to arrival that the lockbox code and Wi-Fi password were sent.

6. We received no directions and indeed ended up spending nearly an hour around 11pm looking for the place (a Park ranger finally helped us find it).

7. Upon arrival, after 11:00pm, we found the cabin infested with live, dead, or dying wasps/hornets, which we had to clean up before we could go to bed. The next day there were more of them and again the next day and the last morning. During our last night, both I and my 65 year-old sister were stung by some bug or another while in bed!

8. I tried to call the management (they use a messaging service with an actual human being at the other end of the phone line!). I left a message re the infestation, asking to be contacted promptly. As was earlier the case - nobody ever did!

9. Upon returning home I emailed the management to complain and ask for partial refund. I was flatly refused claiming their policy (to which I 'agreed' in the contract) 'prevents' them from issuing any refunds..!

Worst ever rental experience!<b
