  • Pros and Cons


    The amount of bedrooms and bathrooms for our family of 12 was perfect. All were clean. The contact person was very helpful and responsive which was necessary as the rest of the house was very disappointing. We could not use the sliding glass doors to the deck as they were broken. I’m assuming that’s why the glass hadn’t been cleaned in some time, as well. The door to the screened in porch was extremely hard to open and its door to the deck was so warped, it wouldn't close without depressing the handle and pulling it shut several times. The picnic table on the deck was also warped and in such need of refinishing that we didn't even bother to serve a meal there. As for the deck, it too was in desperate need of care. Boards were warped, nails stuck out, and the boards themselves had not been stained or refinished in quite some time. Soffits and most of the trim had also been sorely neglected. The description said there was a fire pit but you would have to provide your own firewood which could be bought at stores along the way and so we did. Only to find out it wasn't a pit, but rather a fire table. There were other amenities listed that were also not as advertised. The kitchen was well-stocked but haphazardly put away. Finding what you needed was time intensive. The refrigerator was clean but the cabinets had not been wiped down in a very long time. For what was billed as a boutique home, this dwelling did not live up to boutique standards in any way, shape or form.

  • Perfect!


    While I'd hate for the cat to get out of the bag(!)...this was the best of the places we have stayed in the Territories. The hot tub was by far the easiest, least slippery, cleanest, and HOTTEST tub of the three we have stayed in. There was space for everybody to be ALL in the same room while doing different things! Great family memories had by all. Consensus of the fam was THIS is the place for us!
