  • Nice place/unfriendly host


    Let me first say that this is the FIRST bad review I have ever left anywhere we have stayed with VRBO. The place was clean and nice with beautiful creek in backyard......After reading all amenities carefully and looking at pictures online we purchased food for us to cook breakfast both mornings we were there. We also did not purchase toilet paper as “all toiletries” were included according to amenities list. That being said, when we arrived we found less than 1/2 roll on the toilet paper holder, we searched for more and could not find any, but decided it was not a big deal, they probably just forgot, so we got some more to last us the trip. Amenities also stated that that all cooking basics and toaster was included. We purchased food to cook breakfast the two mornings we were there. When we woke up the first morning at 8:30 to cook breakfast we found there was not a single pot, pan or skillet in the house and there not a toaster. So we drove to store and bought a skillet and came back to learn that the hot plate will only work with a special type skillet that is specifically designed to work with it. At this point it was almost 11:00 and we still had not been able to eat so I called the host and explained we had nothing to cook our food with, to which she replied in a rude tone “I don’t know what to tell you to do”!!! I explained the situation again thinking she would offer help and she said once again “ I don’t know what to tell you to do”!! I ask her what we were supposed to eat and what were we supposed to do with all this food we purchased because she obviously was not wanting to help. I also mentioned that we had even went and bought a skillet that morning to try and avoid calling her. She said “can you not go outside and cook it on the charcoal grill”!!!!! I was amazed at this comment and said NO! After a long pause and realizing I was not going to hang up until the issue was resolved, she said she would bring an electric skillet. About 3 minutes later she pulled up in front of the house and blew her horn!!! I did not come to her beckoning of the horn and so she got out of car and met me on the porch to give me the electric skillet. She never one time on the phone or in person apologized for the inconvenience and rather seemed to have the attitude that we were inconvenienceing her to ask for what was stated in the amenities list. I am not the type to complain but I have never had such a rude host!!!

  • Great Location!


    Studio apartment located in neighborhood along Spring Creek with awesome view from deck. Peaceful place to sit, relax, and breath fresh mountain air! Loved walking downtown to the shops and restaurants. Conveniently located along Appalachian Trail and within driving distance to other outdoor activities! Don't plan on cooking unless it can be prepared in microwave. A little annoyed our last morning out on the peaceful deck was interrupted by owner when he drove up on his loud lawn mower at 930am when we didn't have to check out until 11am. But hey, it wouldn't keep us from renting the Boat House again. Overall, our stay was awesome!
