    The place was 20 mins from a grocery store and we had to search for wifi sign in that we found tucked in a junk drawer. Garbage dump was a 15 min drive away and had to do it daily due to bears. Some things were broken, garbage under twin bunk beds and some clothes left behind on floor in bedroom and it smelled musty. Overall, could of been better but worked for the time being.

    Manager's Response:

    Jacqueline, we want to make vacation rental easy for everyone, and we're sorry if you felt caught off guard. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:

    - As our cabin is located in the woods, we do include a map on our listing so that guests can see the approximate location of the home prior to booking to ensure the remote location meets their needs. We also provide plenty of suggestions in the listing description of nearby attractions and their distance. Per our location, we do ask guests to take their trash to the disposal to avoid bear activity. We apologize for the inconvenience.

    - Pre-check-in instructions are sent out prior to your arrival with important information regarding the property, including the wifi password. When we spoke, we mentioned the wifi information can also be found under the router. Since it had been a few weeks since a previous guest stayed, we advised you to open the windows in the home to air out the property to minimize the musty smell.

    Thank you for your suggestions on areas of improvement and have taken them into further consideration. Your feedback is important to us, and we appreciate the opportunity to address these concerns.
