WONDERFUL TIME

10-31-14

We had a wonderful time in your beautiful house!!! The only thing we'd suggest would be clearer directions. Possible telling people if coming on I90 E or W to take the Nodine exit 267, go past the Kwik Trip, take the right on 104, go down until you see 125, take a left, go until you see a yellow house on left.. Just a thought

Thanks again we'd stay again!!

All our best from all our Families

Plenty of room for all of us!

  • 3 of 5

The house was plenty big and in a quiet location. I have been renting on VRBO and Airbnb for many years now and I never ran into a few of the issues that I did with this rental property, in fact I never had any concerns until this one.

1) The no cancellation policy was a first for all of the places I have rented. I paid for the rental and took a gamble as I wasn't sure if we were going to make it up there that weekend, but thankfully we did.

2) In the house rules (on kitchen counter when we arrived), it is written that they only supply one roll of paper towels and 12 rolls of toilet paper. I have NEVER had to bring my own toilet paper anywhere I have rented. AND the one roll of paper towels they gave us was probably left by the last guest as it was about 1/4 of a roll. It is quite annoying to have to run out and buy toilet paper, but we did as the t.p. that was there when we arrived were rolls for small children - tiny!

3) The best part of the kitchen was the fridge as it was huge! The oven was convection and nothing cooked right in it for us, the freezer was like a dorm-sized fridge and the extra freezer in the basement was really gross.

4) I have one leg and so does another member in my party. We were grateful for the elevator. We stayed in the master bedroom that had a master bath. The shower was the most dangerous one we have used in the past year. Not one railing to hold on to, so we couldn't stand up and actually shower, plus the base was very slippery.

5) When we met the owner, who was very nice, on the morning after we arrived (we got in late the night before), she warned us not to go down the gravel road as there are hunters back there. GLAD she told us, but I am not comfortable with people hunting on the property we are renting out, call me paranoid!

6) Our first night there the caretaker, who was very nice, appeared in our kitchen without any warning, notice, or knock on the door. It was a bit strange and unexpected. I know he was there to check on us so we could use the elevator, but we had no idea he was coming!

7) I have never ever been asked to empty bathroom garbage cans before departure. I always leave my rentals clean and in great order, but I paid a $145.00 cleaning fee, one would think the garbage cans are included.

8) The upstairs railing and banister are very dangerous - wobbly and completely unstable. If I owned the place, I would NOT rent it out until that was fixed by a professional - potential accident - for real

Sister weekend

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Hegge Haven. Beautiful setting, home spacious & comfortable. Close to some awesome sightseeing and of course shopping. I would definitely recommend this home to family and friends that are looking for somewhere special.

Perfect place for large get togethers

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time staying at Hegge Lane. We had a total of 16 guys in our group, and were looking for a place that could fit all of us comfortably to sleep, and eat for a bachelor party weekend. Hegge Lane definitely fit that bill, and was set up perfectly for what we wanted. Rooms and beds were all spacious and clean, and the basement "dorm" room was great to fit a bunch of guys in an area, while having their own beds. The handicap accessibility was very important to us, as the grooms brother gets around via wheelchair, and there wasn't a point throughout the weekend that he wasn't able to join us in the fun, due to inability to get there. Overall, would absolutely recommend Hegge Lane as a great place to stay with a large group!

We had a great time!

  • 4 of 5

Our group of 11 seniors had a great time at Hegge Haven. Sheila met us upon our arrival and gave us a tour of the house. There were plenty of bedrooms for all of us. The upstairs rooms being nicer than the downstairs. The beds were all comfortable. The kitchen was very well stocked and we found everything we needed as we do a lot of cooking. With all the rooms in the house, it took us a bit to find each other on the first day. Plenty of room for quiet reading or large tables for group games. The whole house was very clean. The big yard provided lots of room for outdoor games and the privacy was great! We would definitely book it again!

Thanks Sheila and David,

Judy

Great for an extended family gathering of 18

  • 5 of 5

This is our first time staying at this property. The owner who lives across the way was super friendly. What drew us to this place was that we could bring our dog, and the unique basement sleeping arrangement. Our oldest daughter and son-in-law, who have five children 6-under with one on the way, hesitated doing this family gathering. However, they really enjoyed the lay out of multiple beds separated by partial walls, with curtains for privacy. They were able to meet their family's needs by having the entire lower level to themselves with an extra bedroom to boot. There are extensive somewhat rugged trails that belong to this property which the men and children thought were great to walk. We all loved getting to have backyard fires during the evenings. This was the perfect place for our family to sit and visit especially because the little ones could run or ride their trikes to their heart's content around the big circle cement drive.
