    This is a secluded getaway. Lock mechanism wasn’t working correctly and couldn’t get ahold of owner. Property manager wasn’t able to help. Well water has strong sulfur odor even after draining hot water heater. We didn’t bathe for two days bc of the smell. Dishwasher not unloaded from past renters. Blankets needed washing. Adequate decor, but needs cord management for tvs especially if children were there.

    Manager's Response:

    We truly appreciate you sharing your thoughts about your recent stay. Your feedback is essential to us, and we've relayed your comments to the homeowner, who would like to address the following:

    Regarding the lock mechanism, I visited the cabin shortly after your stay and found it to be functioning correctly. The lock is new and designed to be simple to use. However, if incorrect codes are entered repeatedly, it will lock out for 30 minutes as a security measure. I apologize for any frustration this caused and will ensure future guests receive clearer instructions to avoid similar issues. Please note that I promptly responded to your messages during your stay, and we regret any issues that were not resolved to your satisfaction at that time. The odor of the water is a common occurrence with well water in the area, especially if the cabin has been unused for a few weeks. Draining the hot water heater typically resolves this, and we are exploring additional measures to mitigate the odor more effectively in the future. I am very sorry to hear about the state of the dishwasher and blankets. This does not meet our standards, and I have addressed these concerns with our cleaning team to ensure such oversights do not happen again. We also understand your concern about the TV cords, especially with children around. While there are limited options due to the setup, we will look into potential solutions to improve safety and aesthetics. Your feedback is invaluable in helping us improve. We hope you will consider staying with us again so we can provide you with a seamless experience.

    We enjoyed our stay in the cabin. It was cold outside, but cozy inside. The cabin was perfect for the two of us. Several nice vineyards in the area. I would recommend the cabin for a couple looking for a nice getaway.
