  • Great location, very fair price, clean and comfortable


    For a long weekend in the area, this was a great place for my wife and I, two of our adult sons and our dog. The house was clean and comfortable and just off a nice park trail for our pup.

    Kitchen supplies (spices and oils) were somewhat limited, so bring your own if you intend to cook. Pots and pans were adequate. Host supplied Keurig cup coffee.

  • Decent if you only spend a little time there


    The good: The property parcel itself was great. Absolutely wonderful location near everything, and the wooded area behind the house was beautiful. Long driveway and ample parking, which meant we didn't feel cramped with our 2 SUVs.

    The bad: The house had some sealing issues around the main door by the laundry room. There is/was likely a bug issue, because the sugar and oil were both stored in the refrigerator. Heat was hard to control. We didn't feel comfortable with the swing, since it creaked any time I pulled on it. Low water pressure in the shower.

    For the price, it was a little bit expensive for what it was, but my family mostly went to Taylors Falls to be outside and not in the VRBO for long periods of time.

  • Cute spot for leaf seekers


    Love how this home is nestled in the woods yet close to town for a walk to shops, trails, etc. Home could be cleaned better, specifically cobwebs and spiders along corners and especially upper rooms. We appreciated the fans & AC unit as our Fall weekend was a humid, hot one!

  • Smells of Mold


    The place was decent however 2 of the beds are futons and very uncomfortable. The house smelled different in every room and not in a good way. Gnats, so many gnats everywhere it was hard to even eat inside. Kitchen stunk the worst. Had high hopes for this place being close to our event but unfortunately we won't be back.

    Hi Paul, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay, and we appreciate your feedback, as it allows us to make necessary improvements to ensure a more pleasant experience for all our guests. Prior to your stay, the home had some plumbing issues, which were repaired in time for your reservation. The smell that you referenced was from different scents that had been used to help eliminate the odor that had been left behind from the plumbing issue, as noted this has since been repaired, in addition, the lingering "smell" has also been remedied and is no longer present. Additionally, the issues you reported about gnats have also been remedied to ensure future guests do not share the same experience.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Broken toilet


    Mattress was comfortable, great location to wineries/boat tour. Only downside is septic smell in the house and when you flushed the toilet waste water would seep out from the base. I also emailed the owner asking if there was a grill and never received a response
