Nice place but......
We got here for a 3 night stay last night. the place is clean , well stocked & comfy. Sadly there is an upstairs loft that was rented out to a different party. It did not help that they arrived around 10pm right when we were drifting off to sleep, nor did it help that they would get up to use the toilet about every 2 hours. It just happens to drain over our bedroom.
Being on Vacation Sleep is just a little bit important. We are small business owners & were really looking forward to rest.
We booked a house, because we did not want a hotel room.
Has the owner slept in the bedrooms while there are folks in the upstairs loft??
for this reason I will not rent this house again.
I had the thought we had the option of getting the loft or not, I did not think it would be rented out to other folks while we were here.
Sincerely, sleepy, and sadly awake .......
P.S. you need to throw out all your Teflon pans, they are chipped, Teflon is toxic once inside humans.
Brenden House is a wonderful place to meet the family and stay
Our stay at Brenden House was great. This is the 3rd year we have stayed. The house works well for our extended family. We come from all over and meet in Ashland. The house feels like home. The furniture is comfortable, the rooms private, and there is lots of parking. We have found the house clean and ready for us every time we have visited. Kids love the Roku and flat screen. Like being able to leave the car and walk, even with this cold.
The Brenden House Loft
This is the fifth rental we have procured from VRBO, and this by far is the worst. The entrance stairway was occluded with hanging branches from overgrown trees which made it difficult to come and go especially at night. Stairway not lit therefore one needs a flashlight at night to get up the stairway. The listing listed a phone /answering machine. We could not find the phone or answering machine in the entire place. The TV remote did not work, There was a VHS machine but no videos. The light bulb was out on the front deck area and in the bedroom. There was dirt and mold in the corners of the bathroom. There was no information in the loft regarding the area, things to do , restaurants etc. as we have experienced with other VRBO rentals. No instructions in the Loft about running the place. If we had not downloaded it prior to leaving, we would not have know their instructions. The overall place looks as if it was furnished from Goodwill (and that's not the good stuff one rarely finds there). Its stated a mere 7 blocks to theater area. We found it to be a bit longer and ended up having to drive into town (though parking was not bad once there) No instructions for operating the air conditioner either. The photos enhanced this place and it did not appear as represented in the on line photos. Do not recommend this place. Spend a few extra dollars and stay closer in.
Fortunately, the Brenden House Main is not the property these folks stayed in. The Main is a 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath flat on ground level. I can understand that if they were expecting the Main and booked the Loft, 1 bedroom upstairs, that they would be surprised. The Loft is a lovely one bedroom sanctuary surrounded by trees which enhance the feeling of privacy. The lights on the pathway do go out periodically. They have been replaced with solar lights, so the light on the path is not dependent on a bulb. The pictures on the website show the furniture clearly, so there should not have been any confusion there. The trees are trimmed to enhance the feeling of privacy, which most guests love. Information on the flat and its amenities is emailed to our guest well in advance of their arrival. I don't provide a phone or video movies, and don't claim to, nor do I provide information on area activities. They are available from a multitude of sources online. I am sorry they had a bad stay.
