Date of Stay June 11, 2013

Helpful votes:0/0.

I was given the task of finding a place to spend a few days not far from Evansville IN for our group of high school friends" I found this home on VROB. I was impressed with it right off. I sent the link to my friends and they said rent it. I think I was the first person to ask to rent it and the owner was willing to rent it to my group of 10 women for 2 nights. We arrived a little early on the day of check in, but Marvin, the house manager, was there and allowed us to go,ahead and check in. The house was as advertised. It was perfect for our reunion. The pool was very nice and we used it a lot. The theater room was also used both nights. Marvin and the owner Linda were very good to work with. If we needed something they were quick to get it or fix it. We are planning on returning next year. Everyone enjoyed our stay. Thanks Marvin and Linda.

Large, Broken and Dirty

  • 2 of 5

Let's start with the positive. The house was very large with lots of room to accommodate our group. The pool was also very good sized and well maintained. The property was large and private and in a good location.

Unfortunately, that is all the positive things we can say. Upon arriving to the house, the first thing you see is that the fountain in the front is non-functional and falling apart. The inside was extremely dirty. We were notified of some issues prior to our arrival with the cleaning service, however the dust and dirt seemed to be original to the house. The pool deck only had one lounge chair that was not busted and the broken ones were out in plain sight. The hot tub's cover had caved in and had standing water, so no functional hot tub. The outdoor shower and toiled that were advertised in the house listing were also non-functioning.

As for the inside of the house, there were only 4 forks in the entire house. We notified the owner about the issue and he said he would bring more the next day, but never did. He did deliver a wine opener the first night after we notified him of that issue, but never came back with the forks. There is not a regular tv on the first level and one of the tv's on the second level did not work. Also terribly annoying was the house alarm that chirped 24 hours a day for our entire stay. And just as an FYI to anyone who might be as confused as we were, the house is on a small neighborhood pond, not a lake.

Overall, I would not recommend this house to future renters unless a guarantee of a thorough cleaning and amenity updates was made.

Beautiful and very spacious home with lots of ammenities for a large group of all ages to enjoy

  • 4 of 5

We had 5 family couples and a few young ones from FL, CA, OR, GA and WA state together to celebrate a big birthday for my husband. The VRBO listing was extremely helpful with lots of details and Marvin was a very helpful manager.

This is a fantastic home to accommodate lots of activities (huge kitchen, lovely swimming pool, pond for bass fishing , piano, media room to watch the Olympics, air-hockey and pool tables) -- we enjoyed them all. The kids and adults from OR and WA had never seen lightening bugs and were thrilled to walk down the driveway watching the little lights and were surprised by seeing a skunk at a safe distance!

Home and yard need a little maintenance attention: broken bricks by the front door, water damage under a sink upstairs, and a better window treatment for the master bedroom (early sunrise woke me up at 6:30 am).

All in all -- we loved having such a comfortable living and sleeping space and enjoyed visiting together and music with the piano and our guitars. Franklin is a beautiful and quaint town -- we enjoyed lunch and some shopping.

Wonderful Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

Despite the fact the front fountain isn't working this is a beautiful piece of property that allows a group of people to have fun and bond. We had people from four families and had a wonderful time. I was pleased that the pool table was of high quality. The pool was kept up and beautiful. Marvin was accommodating and welcoming. Great weekend!

We had a great time at the Douglass Glen Property.

  • 5 of 5

Prior to our arrival in Nashville, Marvin, the owner contacted me several times to see if I had any questions regarding the property. I asked about Port-a-cribs and he said that he had one and could get another if we needed it. When we checked in we found that he had installed a baby gate at the top of the stairs and had purchased a brand new Port-a-crib. He had also purchased a new coffee maker as he said that the other one was not great. Turned out that we needed two coffee makers and we thought it was very thoughtful that he had the second one. Marvin came over to show us how to use the media room and to check on some other things that he thought we needed. In short, Marvin was very attentive to our needs.

Douglass Glen worked perfectly for us. We were able to have several dinners with lots of people and it was not crowded at all. We had children of all ages at the dinner and they all had plenty of room to hang around and play and also to eat outside or inside. We were able to serve multitudes without being crowded.

The accommodations are a little dated, but we were there to be together with family and celebrate a wedding. We spent very little time in the sleeping areas and lots of time in the common areas.

Marvin called several times during our stay, just to make sure that we were ok. He responded to every text I sent to him immediately.

All in all, we were very pleased with our stay.

Map

9 acres of beautiful property, 5800 sq ft. house

with 6 acre stocked lake for fishing.

Franklin is a unique blend of history and progress. You'll find the best of both worlds here: small-town charm and big-city sophistication. There are fascinating Civil War sites and museums, magnificent Antebellum and Victorian homes - plus our thriving downtown shopping area and the Cool Springs Galleria, unique dining and entertainment, and wonderful festivals. Franklin has grown from a very small, agricultural community into a strong blend of residential, commercial and corporate citizens.
