Guestbook comments from the owner



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

Home was beautiful & perfect for 3 families to sleep under same roof. It had everything we needed & more. We enjoyed the games & firepit for evening family time. My nephew provided entertainment on the piano. Great experience & memories that we will cherish. Thank you so much for everything!!

Hegge Haven is a wonderful place

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about our stay at Hegge Haven. The house was roomy and comfortable. The yard and scenery were great. A wonderful place to get away from things and relax.

Loved all the space. Had a family gathering of 20 people and there was plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

Enough room for everyone to eat and sleep. Owners were quick to respond to questions. Only things we could have used with below zero temperatures was another space heater for tv room and front bedroom. The rule of 12 rolls of toilet paper and 1 roll of toweling was interesting.

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

Owner's Response: Dear Amy, I am so sorry your stay at Hegge Haven LLC was not up to your expectations. 1)We have a 90 day cancellation policy. This policy was explained in detail through your emails prior to you booking the property.2) We supply 12 rolls of new toilet paper. In the linen closet there are partial rolls. We supply one new large roll of paper towel per stay and partial rolls are left on the lower shelf.3)I am sorry the conventional oven did not work well for you. The freezer is separate, but has more room than a conventional freezer, also the chest freezer in the entertainment room is very useful for ice and larger items.4) Thank You for alerting us to the handicap handrails inside the shower.5) Our house sits on a 110-acre farm. We do not hunt on our land but caution guests that there are hunters out and about the area.6)When you requested assistance with the elevator, our caretaker/ son Erick responded immediately to your request. We always enter via the entertainment room and shout Hello as we enter the house until we make contact with someone. 7) Dirty diapers, depends, feminine products, etc. contain human waste and we ask our guest to dispose of these items in the proper outside receptacle..8)The railing was professionally installed but with wood shrinkage the landing post came loose and wobbly. The installer has redesigned the railing. There are 5 main post and 50 spindles anchored through the floor, though seemingly loose it was not going anywhere.9)We try very hard as a family to accommodate our guests and their needs. After more than 17 emails, many calls and a REDUCTION in rent we felt confident you would enjoy your stay. When you requested Crystal (Daughter/Manager) to ask her mom and dad if they would be understanding of your situation, she responded with this email:9) Amy- I spoke with my mom. She understands that these things can be hard to anticipate as she just spent 6 months with radiation for my dad's cancer. After radiation he had a series of surgeries and still more to come this fall. She thinks that you might feel better booking a hotel or motel near the symposium that has a flexible policy. At this time we cannot afford the risk of waiting until mid-October. If it is still open when you feel more secure about your situation we would welcome you to book at that time. 10) We understand we cannot please everyone but we always try our best. Sincerely Sheila

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!
