We came to this beautiful area with it's hometown welcome to raise our family. This area has been good to us. When our children became grown we wanted to share with others what they got a taste of.

I try to turn them to their interests, if it be sight seeing, hiking , horseback riding , the arts , history or whatever tickles their fancy.

Owner's Response: I always appreciate comments from my guest, but I was confused by the review so I reached out to the guest and she was polite enough to respond. I have left her comment below Replied You did nothing wrong and I'm sorry if I gave that impression. We, as a group, enjoyed ourselves. Next time we wanted to go somewhere else. You have a nice place and would recommend it given the opportunity. Thank you.

Quiet and Spacious

  • 5 of 5

My family loved our stay here. Kitty was so sweet and showed us around when we arrived, answered all our questions and made us feel very welcome. There were games and movies to keep our daughter entertained and plenty of outdoor areas for us to relax. We're so happy we decided against staying in the city. It was so peaceful and just the break we needed.

Not at all what we expected, deceiving pics and disgusting hot tub! And its not even in Prescott!

  • 1 of 5

I hate to give bad reviews but I have to be honest about our experience. I was really looking forward to the hot tub & jacuzzi tub with my arthritis & fibromyalgia. So, lets start there.

1. Both were filthy. Didn't use the bathtub because it was clearly dirty. Hairs in it, remnants of someone else's bath around the drain, & build up around the jets. Hot tub was GROSS! The room smelled bad, should've been our first sign. We didn't notice the filth at first, but then the sunlight hit it, we could see scum floating on the water, a nasty grimy line water line, & chunks of white things floating in the water. We got out & never got back in.

2. Upon leaving the moldy stinky hot tub room, we heard a loud buzzing & noticed bees EVERYWHERE! You could hear them inside the house! My husband is allergic & we had kids with us so this was not good. I realize the owners can't control nature, but you should disclose this in the listing.

3. The house is not in good repair- pictures are deceiving. Old, creaky, things don't work, toilets clogged for no reason, doors are uneven & stick, & no water pressure. Dishwasher is rusted out & missing half of the basket prongs. Outdoor furniture is just plain wrought iron seats - no cushions. There is an outdoor dining table right outside the stinky hot tub room & the tenants quarters.

4. Yeah, someone lives in a little apartment off the hot tub room and was in it the whole time. No privacy, creepy, unexpected! One night someone was creeping around the yard & shone a flashlight on us at the fire pit. Later that night, we heard something on the roof & someone tapping on the windows. No curtains on the huge front windows so anyone can see in.

5. The rules list is excessive. There is a 6 page damage report! A 6 page damage report says you either need to get things fixed, or you aren't comfortable with guests. Either way, you shouldn't have your home on a vacation rental site. The list is also inaccurate & we took pictures of additional damage to send to the owner.

6. Says the house is professionally cleaned, yet she expects you to clean the bathrooms & showers, clean out the oven, wipe down the fridge, & she even shows you where the cleaning supplies are. I paid a cleaning fee so why am I cleaning beyond basic tidying up? And fire your cleaner, the house is filthy especially the kitchen that is crusted in grease & dust.

I could go on but Just pass on this one! Its cheap for a reason! Oh and its in Dewey, not Prescott!

Owner's Response: Becky and her husband were very nice people I enjoyed meeting them. When they arrived we walked all around the home and property and made sure it was cleaned. They arrived at 4 pm and they were happy with the home. They seemed to enjoy all the amenties including the outside fireplace. (I am a bit confused if they were afraid of bees as they stated they were enjoying the outside fireplace) They left the home fairly clean . But that being said there are is no rule book as we got rid of that months ago so they must of went back to old reviews. We have a maintenance sheet left for the service that comes and that she signs off. Tells me if there is something that needs attention. They stated I told them to clean the home this was never discussed she did leave the home fairly clean. When the service arrived to clean she found the home was left unlocked when they departed.(The guest stated that she felt someone was lurking outside the home we have cameras for the perimeter of the property and we reviewed these after there stay... it shows nothing only the guests) The service lady called and told me that their was lots of water in the the hot tub room I assumed it was just from children splashing, so I sent back the damage deposit. When I came home the service person showed me the water OMG there was 2 inches of water on the hot tub floor. This was a costly repair but it needed to be fixed before the next guests. I spoke to a rep from Homeaway as I told them I felt they were good people but should of told me about the hot tub. The repairman stated that it appeared they used it as a swimming pool.There was a broken control on one of the jets that was forced and had broken a seal. He found a second seal broken from someone putting force on a jet on the side of the tub. I am sorry that they felt the need to downgrade the property
