The #1 reason for only an ok rating...the bed. It is like sleeping on a lumpy brick. The mattress cover is paper thin so you felt every contour of the mattress, and it is hard as a rock. The frame squeaks with every little movement, and it moves on the wood floor making noise as well. The bedroom door hangs open directly next to the bed so whoever sleeps on the outside has the door right in their face. We did not want the door shut because then you have no air movement (no ceiling fan in here). Tried the AC unit which was so loud we had to turn it off. Tried to open a window, but then you hear every car that goes by or the upstairs apartment's AC unit. It was awful, and we did not sleep well.
The place is quaint, but its old and isn't very clean. The shower is moldy ( I regret not having shower shoes!), the bath rug looked like it hadn't been washed in a year, the extra blanket has stains on it, the throw blankets looked dirty and there were cobwebs and dead bugs in all the window sill areas.
There seriously needs to be some house quiet hours. The other visitors above the garage thought it would be a great idea to do laundry in the shared washer/dryer at 9:00p.m. and then forgot their stuff in the dryer for a hour while it was on wrinkle guard. So we got to listen to it kick on every few minutes for close to an hour. And then they put another load in and did the same thing for at least 20 minutes around 10:00 p.m.! The door between our place and the washer area is only an interior door, so it was very loud and rude.
We were surprised there weren't any tissues in the house, but I will say that there were plenty of dishes and kitchen items to use. It is also nice that folks leave behind various toiletry items ( shampoo, body wash, etc.) So in case you forget something, you are covered.
The host was nice, but we will not choose this location again.
Hi Mallory, thank you for taking the time to share your review. We greatly appreciate your feedback, and we would like to share some insights from the homeowner:
-In our experience, we've found the bed to be quite comfortable when we've slept in it. Also, we regularly wash all blankets and sheets for our guests' comfort. The room air conditioner has never been bothersome for us, especially since we tend to sleep with the door shut.
-In reference to the shower, we meticulously use Clorox during cleaning to ensure mold is not present. However, we acknowledge that the shower's older design might cause discoloration that could be misconstrued as mold. We're committed to addressing this aspect.
-We make sure to spray for bugs regularly to keep the place pest-free. The presence of deceased bugs might actually show that our efforts are working. Occasionally, after cleaning, there might be a period where the cabin remains unoccupied before the next guest arrives.
-Unfortunately, we can't control people driving cars, and we weren't aware of others using the laundry facilities as it wasn't reported to us. It's worth noting that in our efforts to ensure guest satisfaction, meeting everyone's varied expectations can be quite a challenge. We want to emphasize that our place is a delightful cabin by the lake, offering its own unique charm.
We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.
Everything was AMAZING,we had the best time ever..we will be booking again.
Place was okay for the price, horrible parking if your bringing a boat. You’ll have to unhook it every time, and the trash was way down the road next to a residential house on a tiny gravel road that looks like a driveway, which it was required for the guest to take all trash to dumpster or risk being charged!
Hi Lewis, we want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize if you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
- The pre-stay emails we send all our guests do state that if you plan to bring a boat, please reach out to the Guest Contact before arrival for more information, so thanks for reaching out so we could discuss the fact that there is limited boat parking available. We encourage guests to thoroughly review the listing before booking, to ensure they find the perfect vacation home for their needs.
- As is standard for vacation rentals, guests are asked to complete a few small tasks, like removing their trash, as part of checkout. There is a trash dumpster provided for the whole neighborhood where we ask guests to dispose of their trash. The cleaning fee goes to a professional service that sanitizes and prepares the home for each new guest.
We truly go above and beyond for our guests and are confident that future guests will have an enjoyable experience. Thanks for letting us know about your stay!
Quiet little hideaway. Enjoyed the fire pit.
