Reviewer Comments:

Stayed at Fernwood for 5 nights recently. As stated location is convenient for walking into town for everything you need. We stayed during the low season so noise from the road was never an issue but I feel it could be during the busy summer months with more traffic.

The outside areas was large and comfortable. Grill seemed new and worked well the times we cooked on it. Propane tanks were provided. The fire pit was a simple store bought version that allowed us to all sit around and stay warm at night. Firewood was not provided for us other than a bundle to get things going but we had anticipated this and brought our own.

Inside is cozy, especially when you turn on the heat. The heat can get the interior very hot so be prepared to turn it off at night unless you like waking up to a very warm house. I would agree the furniture is in need of replacement for the living room. I thought the chair and sofa bed were comfortable but they were old and in need of a cleaning.

As with the majority of rentals in GA, bring your own spices, flour, sugar, and condiments for dinner. I would also bring another drying town for dishes, one was provided. Plenty of dinning utensils, plates, and cookware are provided.

Bathroom was nice and new looking. Towels were soft. Laundry is provided so bring your own detergent and dryer sheets.

Overall nice place to stay for a trip to GA.

Manager responded on 11/12/2015:

Thank you for staying with us. Regarding firewood there will be an abundance of wood in 2016. (from all of the trees that came down in the storm) We will be updating the furniture in the living room as well for 2016. There are a few basic spices. We do not expect our owners to stock the cabinets however. We do typically supply 2 dishtowel and two dishrags.

Our stay was mid-Oct.. The river is across the street & apparently they had one heck of a storm in Aug. of this year. Trees were down in the river at our location so fishing really wasn't an option there. Enjoyed our drive around the area to sightsee & meals in town. House was clean upon arrival & no complaints at all!

Reviewer Comments:

The cottage is nice and location is better. The only bad thing to say is the living room furniture is terrible. The couch is dirty and the chair old. Both belong in the trash. Time to get something new and comfortable. Which I would think since its a rental something better would be nice.

Reviewer Comments:

We stay at Frenwood every year and always enjoy the experience. The storm damage was visible around town and also at our cabin. We miss the big tree at the road that provided great shade! We would absolutely recommend this cabin to others. Two small areas of concern: the dimmer switch for the light over the dining table doesn't work. The light comes on but does not dim. The light is very bright for activities at the table other than eating. The bathroom could use a night light, it is very dark at night in Glen Arbor and it is hard to find the bathroom from the back bedroom. We do note that the screens in the back bedroom are missing. We assume this is due to damage from the recent heavy storms and are certainly understanding of the time and effort it takes to replace such things. We do feel strongly that screens are needed on those windows since the cabin does not have air conditioning and open windows are critical for cross ventilation in the cabin.

Owner's Response: We love our repeat guests! We will attend to the dimmer and add nightlights. Hmmm on the screens. They are new and wonder where they went. Will locate. See you next year.
