  • Nice area but this house needs attention


    This house needs a deep clean - stove area very greasy and back deck was very dirty. We cleaned the table, chairs and barbecue ourselves to make the area useable. The dining room chair legs were loose and wobbly, the deck outdoor lights did not work. Last guest's feminine products were still in the bathroom wastebasket. The photos might give you the impression that there is river access; for the record, there isn't. Fire pit is great and bedrooms are nice and peaceful with comfortable beds. Goldbar and area is a beautiful destination. But on balance I cannot recommend this property.

  • convenient and relaxing


    Very convenient and relaxing. It's just several houses down from our son's house making for a very nice visit on the river.

  • Beautiful location with some quirks


    There are a lot of great things about "Spirit of the Sky." The location is beautiful, with views of the river and a luscious back yard. I'd love to stay there in the summer or early fall when we could enjoy the outdoor space more. The hot tub, internet, heat, gas fire place, and major kitchen appliances all worked great and contributed to a comfortable stay. The kitchen has some minor disrepair issues: a drawer that has no bottom; a fridge door that swings open all the way to the side of the fridge if you don't stop it with your hand; a coffee maker that didn't work for us (although we found a smaller one in a cupboard that worked great!); and some cupboards that were peeling. The bigger issue for us was the plastic cover on one of the upstairs beds that made a lot of noise when trying to sleep. It was so disruptive for us that we couldn't sleep on it. Fortunately there was a futon available. Not the most comfortable but better than the noisy plastic! We would need to know that the owner had replaced the plastic cover with a traditional mattress pad before booking this property again. The place was clean when we arrived but seemed to be short on towels (no paper towels, one kitchen towel, and barely enough bath towels) until we discovered a plethora of towels in the dryer the day before we left. The cabin was adequate for our needs but has the potential to be amazing with a little more attention to repairs and details.

  • Great location near the river


    Great location. However we found that the listing misrepresents how the property looks and actually is. On reflection the photos appear photoshopped. While the cabin was overall clean it became apparent that it was a little uncared for eg the fridge door had lost all its shelving and the door swings open unless held on to. I spent 45 mins cleaning the coffee maker carafe because it was so encrusted with stains. Some of the cooking pans are in a state of disrepair. There was no auto dishwashing liquid left for us. One of the main beds had a mattress cover that was extremely noisy and kept a family member from sleeping well. While these may seem like small matters the cumulative effect was frustrating. The guest contact/owner was easy to reach and responsive, did offer us a refund for the remaining nights if we chose to leave, said the feedback was duly noted. We chose to stay because we had nowhere else to go at short notice and we’re visiting family from out of state. We still managed to enjoy our stay in the area. The yard and hot tub were great. We didn’t use the latter because it was hot weather.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi James, we appreciate you taking the time to provide feedback on your recent stay. After reading your comments, the homeowner wanted to share the following:
    - We're delighted to hear that you enjoyed the location of our property. It's always wonderful when our guests appreciate the surroundings.
    - Rest assured that the photos of our cabin are genuine and have not been Photoshopped. We believe in providing an accurate representation of our property so that guests can make informed decisions.
    - Regarding the missing shelves on the fridge door, we asked if you could use the main fridge shelves instead and you said that would be fine and that you just wanted to give the homeowner a heads up on something you found amiss.
    - The coffee carafe was clean, but it's not uncommon for coffee stains to remain inside the pot despite thorough cleaning efforts.
    We strive to ensure every detail meets our guests' expectation and as such the homeowner immediately offered you a full refund for the rest of your stay if you chose to checkout of the property. However, you chose not to exercise that option. After a few days of your check-out you again contacted the homeowner and asked for a refund for some of the nights stayed but that was something the homeowner politely declined to entertain.
    Thank you for choosing our cabin for your stay.

    Definitely will book again. Comfy and quiet. Loved hearing adult eagles and their babies.
