Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Once again it was a wonderful cabin to stay in. Very quiet in the woods. Fire pit, with chairs and picnic table. The charcoal grill is a great asset. Highly recommended.

Not so good

  • 2 of 5

The first problem was that the location was not even close to were it shows up on the map. This was very inconvenient for us. Then a neighbor warned us about keeping our eye on the kids as it wasn't the best neighborhood. Seemed true as there were creepy looking trailers all over and heard gun shots one night.

The owner seemed very nice. The house looked pretty clean until we really paid attention. There were cobwebs all over. So I called the owner and she came to clean and spray. She did get a lot of the cobwebs, but there were lots more, especially in the windows. When I wanted to cook the dishes looked okay until I really looked and then had hard food on them.

We have seven people in our family and there weren't enough dishes. The window AC is in the living room. To keep cool all the bedroom doors had to be open, so not too private. The shower is very squealy, no matter what we did. The water was warm though. The washer and dryer were nice to use. Over all felt nicer than camping but would not choose to stay here again. I call homeaway and they put me on hold. After like 30 min. it disconnected. Called again, put on hold, after 15 min or so I gave up. Won't use homeaway again either. Nicer places out there for about the same price.

Owner's Response: Sorry that you feel your stay was not good, Please keep in mind that its a cabin in the woods, there are going to be spiders. There is state land close by so you will hear gun shots as people are hunting, or target practice, although it could have been fireworks that someone was lighting off. we put an air conditioner in just as a convenience to help stay cool, for the first couple of years there was no air conditioning, the cabin is offered as a upgrade to camping. As for privacy there really is none when camping, its a time for bonding and socialization with family and friends.

Great house in the woods

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous time. The house is very clean and the owners are accommodating. This was the perfect location for us visiting family. Everything was there for linens and other items you wouldn't want to drag with you. I am grateful for the washer and dryer, we didn't have to pack as many clothes. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean & Cozy

  • 5 of 5

Great little house that was super clean and cozy - perfect for our Fall Leaf trip overnight...and we were able to bring our dogs too. Great outside space for dogs and people - wish we had more than just the 2 of us!

Very clean, very nice owners, private.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed a week to hunt with our English setters. The home was clean and very comfortable, the dogs really enjoyed the freedom of the fenced yard instead of a chain gang. We would highly recommend this place and are thinking of coming back next year.
