  • Okay Stay in Arnold


    Okay and clean property. we stayed for 3 days. Owner was very responsive. But the property needs some upgrades, especially kitchen appliances and utensils. We were short of some pillows and blankets.

  • Spacious mountain lodge for large family


    A few items were not as advertised and a bit disappointing, but all in all our family had a great time in the lodge. The kitchen has a lot of counter space, perfect for a large family, and a good assortment of appliances, pots and pans, etc. It is right off the highway, but the highway noise was not overly bothersome. The large deck was great for family meals and sitting in the beautiful surroundings, listening to birds and relaxing. Plenty of room for hanging out together indoors and out.

  • Very Nice Vacation home.


    My experience renting this property was great! Had an awesome time with my family. Owner responded back to us in timely manner. Although 1 chair was kind of broken and some pool table stick were not working properly. Other than that, my experience at this rental home was awesome. Very spacious for family vacation. Inside was clean and outside patio was nice to sit and enjoy the view and breeze.

    Our stay at the lodge was a great one! We had a fabulous time and all the small extras were definitely appreciated, seasonings, pots, pans, speakers, all the outside and inside sitting space was perfect for our group. Parking was fabulous.You can definitely see all the stars in the evenings! Such a wonderful sight! Great place for larger size families.

  • Overall ok, but house was not clean upon arrival


    The space itself is great, many rooms lots of common areas great kitchen. However, this property was not cleaned nor linens and towels washed prior to our arrival. We arrived at 11 PM after four hours of road travel to a house that was dirty, trash not taken out and bed still with previous guests dirty linens on them. We ended up spending the next 3 to 4 hours washing linens to even be able to sleep that night. Not the way you want to start your first night of vacation . On top of a dog, reception is very spotty and not easy to communicate with host even with Wi-Fi. As I said, the location of the house itself is beautiful and the space is great but the preparation for new guests was not.
