Great reunion/vacation rental home!

  • 5 of 5

We were a group of 12 adults and we stayed in this home for a full week. One family upstairs, one couple on the main floor, and one family downstairs. It was great for each family group to have its own bathroom, plus there's the extra half bath on the main floor. There was plenty of floor space in the bedrooms for our extra air mattress beds. The kitchen is spacious, the dining area is nice! We even put the extra leaf in the table and had more seating with a few chairs from the porch/deck. The main living room is big and has quite a high ceiling. The wide open, spacious feel was really great with 12 people. We never felt crowded. We played lots of games and had quite a great time as a 3-generation family reuniting.

No towel racks in the bathrooms was a bit of a surprise, but towels dried quickly out on the railing. The 2 decks wrap around the entire home. There is a lovely little pond with a gazebo that we utilized every day. Fishing, relaxing, catching up. We ate some meals out on the decks. Lots of seating.

The beautiful scenery, gorgeous weather, and opportunities to go bird-watching or explore the 'neighborhood' made for a very relaxing vacation. The air conditioning was great on the more humid days. The rec room in the basement was a nice getaway for those who wanted to do puzzles, watch TV, read, or play pool. No internet in the home but wifi was available at the nearby community center. Our Verizon & Sprint phones worked in and around the house. T-Mobile did not have service at all. The community center's exercise equipment & shower were pretty nice and we did use that daily.

We loved that there were places within 8-15 miles that had inner tube, kayak, and bike rentals. And grocery, ice cream, restaurants, & odd-item shopping was close by as well. The gated community and homes spaced far apart gave this rental a very private and secure feel.

The owner was readily available by phone during our stay, and also before and after by email or facebook messaging. He answered our questions and worked with us very well to make sure things were going smoothly! We also met the groundskeepers - very friendly. This is a super-comfortable and lovely home, and all in all we were extremely happy with our choice of rental properties. We took lots of photos -- made great & lasting memories. We would recommend this rental and would love to return one day!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

Got locked out at 1am in the morning and the owners were available to help us out with just a phone call away! They were extremely helpful in working with us to set up the stay as well as having the place look amazing! The pond has catfish and largemouth bass. We only caught 5 fish but every one was over 15inches (catfish 24). So relaxing and enjoyable and strongly recommend.

I would recommend this cabin for a family wanting some quality relaxing family time. Because of the lack of Internet and wyfi it makes you find other resources of entertainment. Reading, watching movies, walking, live conversations with family... or short trips to play in river or canoeing.. It was nice to just be still and rest my mind from the outside world. The cabin it self was beautiful and comfortably furnished. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking inside or outside. There was lots different styles furniture on both decks to fit anyones needs. We ejoyed a short trip over the mountains to visit West Jefferson. There were watched the process of making cheese and then dinner at Shattly Springs.. This would also make a nice retreat location.

Beautiful home inside and out. Its huge with spacious bedrooms, dining area and kitchen. It is well furnished with all the amenities of home. Lovely furniture with great beds and I’m grateful I didn’t have to take my own linens. The pool table and pond was great fun for the young and the young at heart . Large deck with lots of sitting areas with very nice Adirondack chairs and rockers for the beautiful view. It was so exciting seeing alots of wild life. We seen deer’s, bunnies, ground hogs and a great variety of birds Will definitely be vacationing here again.

beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great for our group of 13 people - mix of family and friends, ages 16-60+. It's peaceful and spacious and beautiful. The area was beautiful, and we enjoyed swimming in the river and taking a kayak trip. Loved the house, which has great porches and plenty of space on different levels so folks could gather or have private space. Appreciated the pool table and the grill, too! Only wish there were better cell service so communication could be easier, and wifi so we could have researched options for exploring and adventure. We would definitely return. It was great!

Large, Pretty Cabin

  • 3 of 5

The good: Large, pretty cabin. Abundant parking (I'm sure you could fit ten cars easily). Easy to get to. Our bed was comfy (although other members of our party said theirs was not). A lot of dishes, cookware, etc. Nice looking furniture, counters, flooring. A lot of outdoor furniture on both decks.

The not-so-good: Odd, assorted clothing in virtually every closet. Towels seemed to be an odd assortment piled into a laundry basket rather than nice, newer towels in their appropriate closets / bars. Handsoap seemed to consist of water in handsoap bottles. Maintenance seems lacking -- lower panel missing from dishwasher, ants around stove, plumbing leak under kitchen sink, refrigerator kept running and running but did not get cold while we were there, some blinds missing from necessary rooms, a smoke detector missing from ceiling and left on dresser, I believe a tv was missing from one of the upstairs bedrooms?, cover on chandelier falling down (making it appear the light was going to crash).

I also found cleaning to be quite lacking -- although pretty, the entire cabin was in need of a detailed scrubdown. In my opinion, the windows were really dirty, outdoor furniture and a lot of the decks were really dirty, some of the kitchen counter was dirty, there was dust and crumbs left on the floor, there were a lot of stains in sinks and tubs that I feel could be removed given time and proper tools, televisions had fingerprints on them, , the bar closet had old disintegrating flowers on the counter, a lot of furniture actually had dust on it, seemed to be begging for some furniture polish.

The owners seem to be really nice people. When I sent an email to make sure they were aware of the more serious issues, their mother texted me very quickly. She offered to send the housekeeper back out but I had already Clorox-wiped necessary surfaces, dusted furniture, and swept. She also indicated they'd recently had the plumbing leak worked on, thought it was fixed and would fix again after we left. I know they were trying to install a new refrigerator after we left but the old one was working again when they got there.

In closing, this cabin has so much promise and we would very much consider renting it again next year. However, if we do I will cross my fingers that better cleaning and maintenance services are found by then ... and I will be better prepared to clean myself in case cleanliness has not changed.
