Just OK is not OK
6 of us spent 3 nights recently at Rowe's Retreat.
This home is in a really cool area and was probably beautiful 20+ years ago when it was built. But, the place REALLY needs some TLC.
Before our arrival, we noticed a review that complained about ants in the kitchen. My wife contacted the owner and he assured her that the problem would be taken care of before we arrived. It was not.
We found hundreds of ants all over the kitchen. They were EVERYWHERE. We used the vacuum cleaner and sucked up as many as we could. They kept coming back. They were all over every inch of counter and the stove.
We were able to get them cleaned up enough to cook dinner. Afterward, we sprayed every surface with ant killer and left it on overnight. Not ideal, but we had no other choice. The next morning, the population was a lot smaller and we probably killed fewer than 50 the rest of the weekend. We scrubbed the kitchen and cooked breakfast.
At breakfast, we discovered that the coffee maker was not working. We were able to boil water on the stove and pour it over the coffee filter so that we could get by.
I emailed the owner and told him about the ant problem and the coffee maker. His response was, "we thought that you were coming Saturday, not Friday, so the cleaning crew had not treated for ants yet." On the coffee maker, he said, "the previous guest didn't complain about the coffee maker and there were grounds in the garbage, so it must have worked for them." Those are excuses, not solutions. Those comments do not help at all. He had no offer of getting us another coffee maker or an apology for the ants. We paid for Friday night, why would we come on Saturday?
Besides the ants and coffee maker, the main floor toilet does not work right. The carpets are old and stained, the furniture is mismatched and should have been replaced years ago. There is cabinetry and trim that is falling apart.
I've stayed on the beach in Hawaii before and have paid less than what we paid for this place. For that price, I was expecting something a little nicer. Or at least something clean.
I struggled with writing this, because I have a VRBO rental in Puerto Vallarta and I know how important good reviews are. But, reviews can also be a learning experience when a guest is unhappy. This could have been handled better and we may have skipped the bad review, if he had at least shown some concern. But here we are. Overall, we had an enjoyable weekend, but it should have been less stress.
Nice river front home
We really enjoyed the house and the property. It is a great river front property with a nice fire pit right on the river. There was plenty of space in the house and could easily sleep everyone. Reading some of the other reviews there were some ants in the house and the kitchen was just the basics. Overall a good vacation home at a good price.
This is a gorgeous property that offers a very comfortable getaway for family or friends. The cabin is clean and fully stocked with 3 comfortable bedrooms. Kitchen has everything you need. The property is tucked away amongst trees, with the river flowing right past. We loved the fire pit on the river bank, and the hot tub! Drive to Leavenworth in half an hour, to Plain in less than 10 minutes. Easy to get anything you might have forgotten! Wenatchee State Park is nearby. So much to do! We will definitely be back!
Would definitely stay here again. Great communication with owner when needed and property was great!
Had a great time,plenty of room for 10. Owner was very cool,had everything you need. Great neighbors,very friendly. Will do it again
