  • 3 of 5

I've read all the reviews of this rental since my stay in August. There are elements in most of them that applied to my stay. The five stars tend to focus on the beauty of the area, solitude, quiet, fresh air, stunning night time sky. All true. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed that aspect to our stay. The not-so-favorable reviews discuss conditions inside and outside the home and property. I left the owner, Daryl, a list of suggestions that we thought would improve things. These included removing the collapsed burn barrel in the back yard that is filled with empty beer bottles and cans. Picking up cigarette butts around the front deck and removing the torn outdoor carpeting hanging off the steps. Weed whacking and clearing around the outdoor shed. Finishing the trim around the floors and doors inside. One person raved about the modern conveniences, including wifi. There isn't wifi and Daryl was upfront about that when I asked. There is cell service for Verizon users. Also, he said he'd had a satellite guy out to try to fix things, but at the time of our stay, there was no satellite and therefore no way to play dvd's since the connections went through the satellite receiver. To play DVDs we would have needed a cable to go direct to the TV (an HDMI to a 3 prong red/yellow/white) which we didn't have. All the beds were made up but looked rumpled. I, too, questioned whether the sheets were clean. Daryl assured me they were, but I found what I thought was dirt or debris that might have come from dirty feet at the end of one of the beds, so we washed all our sheets before sleeping in them. It is true that the microwave could use a good scrub down as well as the cabinet faces. I suggested to Daryl to move things on the floors and counter tops when cleaning, get behind, under and around. The 3/4 bathroom is shared with the washer and two dryers. The water heater and expansion tank from the well are visible and the plumbing is exposed. This isn't a complaint. A lot of people grow up with bathrooms like this, but I know some people, including my family, would find it odd. The couple times I talked with Daryl he seemed apologetic and sincere that conditions were not satisfactory, but I'm not sure if complaints are taken seriously since the negative reviews mention very specific things that we also experienced. This rental has a lot of potential and we would enjoy returning if there was a change in management practices.

Fantastic getaway cabin!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking to get away from all the noise and clutter in your life, this cabin has the PERFECT mix of modern necessities (i.e. wifi, satellite tv, AC) and solitude of the quite, calm, emptiness of the great outdoors. For your next getaway stay, I highly recommend booking here.

LOCATION IS WONDERFUL

  • 2 of 5

The location was just what we were looking for but there were issues. There were beer bottles and cans thrown in a collapsed rusted can and broken glass on the ground. There was even a full beer can on the one grill. I opted to mop the floors and sanitze the counters because they appeared dirty. My cleaning rags proved that to be true, they were black. I am not sure if the owner has someone who is suppose to manage and clean between stays but I feel they are taking advantage and not doing their job.

Peaceful Getaway

  • 4 of 5

I really enjoyed staying at this cabin. It was so peaceful to just sit out back and enjoy nature. Exactly what I was looking for to relax and unwind from the daily hussle and bustle of life. I was surprised that we didn't see any wildlife there other than a raven that hung around. He was our entertainment though. Everyone that passed by or when we took a stroll waved which was nice, that's country living. The owner was very quick to reply to a few questions I had as well. He made you feel very welcome. So to summarize if your looking for a peaceful getaway this is it. Remember this is a cabin not a luxury hotel. So sit back, relax and enjoy the great outdoors.
