Neighbors on top of you- administrative nightmare fortune in hidden fees

Neighbors on top of you

Hundreds of dollars in hidden fees for parking and amenities and cleaning

Administrative nightmare detracting from enjoying the trip

They charge your credit card hundreds of dollars for parking and amenities without permission.

Owner's Response: This community has a gate card fees (per car) and amenity badge fee (per adult). The quote that comes form Homeaway is generally not 100% correct because it can't calculate the costs for cars and people. As we review a quote, we do provide every potential renter an ACCURATE cost as we can determine the exact cost for the # of cars and # of people. There are no "hidden" fees are they are all documented in the revised quote as well as a detailed rental agreement. The renter initiates all charges to their card, as we have no ability to charge any credit card, so we CANNOT charge anyone's card without permission! Being a GATED community, Arrowhead has rules and regulations that HELP KEEP IT SAFE! Knowing who is entering the community is simply part of keeping the community safe. Some may see this as a problem while others see it as an advantage! We all need to do our part to help keep the community safer and the "administrative nightmare" helps us do just that! Being on "top of one another: perhaps is simply a perception. We certainly cannot know what this renters perspective of close is. Some folks see 50 feet away as "close" while others see 50 feet away as a huge distance. We all know that we cannot please everyone all of the time. We do try to learn from both positive and no so positive comments because each is valuable in it own right!

Another Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

This is the second year in a row that we rented the drift away on Trout Creek. Both years the owners and property manager have been very accommodating and easy to work with. Myself, my husband, and our two daughters 11 and 3 years old have had a wonderful time staying at this chalet. The kids love playing in the river and feeding the duck family that has been around both years and we have enjoyed camp fires in the evening and very comfortable accommodations. The location is perfect, tranquil but only a short walk/bike ride from the main pool and playground that our kids love. We look forward to more happy vacations at the Driftway chalet in Arrowhead Lake!!

Exactly what we were looking for! Relaxation.

  • 5 of 5

What a GREAT place! We rented this house for a late April weekend getaway with some friends.

We arrived late at night and the Arrowhead Lake office personnel were both friendly and informative. The directions and highlighted map they gave us to get to the house were perfect.

The inside of the house was clean and spacious. We felt relaxed as soon as we walked in. The screened-in porch is nice. We spent time enjoying a cocktail and the scenery on huge back deck which overlooks a stream. At night we sat around the fire pit listening to the water and star gazing.

I highly recommend this house if you just want to "recharge" from a busy week or want to spend some quality time with your family.

There is so much to do here. We will definitely be back!

Get-A-Way Weekend with Friends

  • 5 of 5

The Chalet was everything we expected and more! Arrowhead Lake community is so beautiful and offers so much to see and do. The beauty of the creek and its relaxing sounds while sitting reading on the deck was wonderful. On Saturday night we enjoyed sitting around the fire, listening to nature, seeing a falling star and ultimately singing old campfire sounds. The Lodge offered the guys a chance to play several games of pool while the women found a good book to read. We wished we could stay longer because we felt so welcomed and entertained. The Chalet truly became HOME for us as we enjoyed a much needed retreat from our busy world. Looking forward to a return trip--SOON!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your kind words! The owners took a lot of time to make this home cozy and comfortable! Sitting on the deck or in the rear yard taking in the peaceful sounds of Trout Creek is such a calming experience and we are so pleased that you were able to enjoy it! We hope you come back to "Drift Away" Chalet!

Beautiful, Clean, Comfortable, Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, comfortable, CLEAN, relaxing get away! My husband and I took our three kids for NYE weekend and though it was too cold to be outside, we had an amazing time inside this cottage. We all stayed comfortably and enjoyed each other with just enough space to have quiet time in separate rooms as well. The fire place warmed the whole house as we played games and watched movies. We will be looking into staying here again in the summer with the beautiful creek outback, the lake and pools its bound to be an amazing time.

Girlfriends weekend was so relaxing, peaceful and quiet in this very comfortable home. Loved the deck, overlooking stream. Great fire pit. Kitchen well equipped. Beds very comfortable. Nice location for walks. Lake was beautiful to kayak. Would definitely come again... Year round.
