  • Great vacation


    The host responded promptly the house very clean. The driveway was not as deep as other places we have stayed in. It was actually very nice and we got to see a bear within the first hour of us arriving there.

  • Realky nice place.


    We stayed here for two nights while taking a tour of WCU fir our children. The house was lovely and well decorated. Everything was great and any questions I had were swiftly answered. I would recommend this house to anyone.

  • Cozy place in the woods


    The house looks into a beautiful wooded area from a deck fitted with very comfortable furniture for dining and just siting. We watched the very beginnings of fall just coloring the trees and it was special. The living room, too, was roomy and very comfortable with a big dining table nearby. The kitchen was equipped with most things we needed and served us well during our two week stay.

    Our host, Alfredo, was an exceptionally good communicator, to the extent of once responding while he was in Europe at 1:30 AM their time!

    We did feel it could have been better supplied with paper towels, toilet paper, etc., but we were there longer than the average visitor. The heating/cooling system was tricky to figure out and I’m not sure we ever did, so most nights we had to keep the bedroom siding door open to be comfortable.

    Altogether it was a terrific experience nestled in the woods.

  • Could use some TLC


    Pros: access to the resort amenities ($25 per amenity card per week-we got 1 for me and 1 for my husband-or $5/day), as the pools, arcade and mini golf were enjoyable, as was the beach and fairfield lake. The bathrooms in the house appear to have been updated at some point. The upstairs deck is nice enough during the day.Cons: The house could use some TLC. No curtains on the sliding glass doors in the downstairs room with the bunk beds. The kitchen and its appliances are old. The dryer stopped working mid-cycle on first use. The host offered to send a tech but this was our vacation and we weren't available to wait for one to show up. Also, VRBO will charge you a nonrefundable service fee and the company that manages the property, Evolve, will charge you a nonrefundable "Damage Protection" fee to book the house.We might consider returning to this resort community for the amenities mentioned but to stay in a lakeside home or villa.
