Convenient Cabin for Ski Season

  • 4 of 5

This cabin suited our needs. The game room and VHS movie selections were good entertainment for the evenings. We also enjoyed relaxing in the hot tub. The cabin was easy to get to and from Wolf Creek, especially if you do not have 4 wheel drive. The kitchenware was typical for a rental (overused and limited/random). There were no pans for the oven (only muffin pans) and the spatulas were cracked and broken. Not a huge issue as we made do with what we had and are usually prepared by bringing what we know we need.

Nothing I paid for!!!! I would give it NO stars!!!!

  • 1 of 5

Before getting to the property I never received any information on how to access the property until I texted the owner telling them that I was there at 6:39pm on April 7th. When we arrived there was two - three feet of snow in front of the garage that we had to shovel to get the car in the garage. The place was freezing when we got in and it was so dirty and covered in cobwebs that it looked like no one had been there in weeks. The hot tube had a leak and needed to be filled. The owners had their cleaning lady and her husband come and fill the hot tub with a garden hose so we were unable to use the hot tub the first night. The next morning we checked on the hot tube again and it needed to be refilled again. We were able to get in around 7:00pm and it was still lukewarm. We decided to try out the sauna to find out that it was broken as well. So we decided to light the fire pit and you guessed it also broken. So we went to the game room. The pool sticks for the pool table were missing all the tops, the foosball table had no ball and the air hockey table had no puck so we were unable to use anything in the game room. We decided that we were going to go fishing at the river featured on their listing and then found out that the river is across the street and on private property and could not be accessed. The fireplace in the living room did not work and we could not get the pilot light to light, and the front door did not lock from the outside. I contacted the owners and they told me that I was just trying to get a free vacation when all I wanted was what I paid for. If I wanted to sit in an empty dirty house and watch TV all weekend I could have stayed home.

Scheduled Stay was 8/18/16-8/25/16

  • 3 of 5

My family rented this house to attend a wedding and while there my spouse passed away. I had to leave to return home on 8/20 to make funeral arrangements all of the rest of the family left by 8/22 in order to attend the funeral. I asked for at least a partial refund and was denied by owner stating the reason was that there was no way it could be rented on such short notice. I realize we signed a contract felt like it would've been the right and ethical thing to do as the whole situation was out of my familys control. As far as the house most everything was satisfactory but no more than average.

Where to start?

  • 2 of 5

House on the river? No. Across the street from houses on the river. Neighbors won't let you access it.

House on the golf course? No. 10 minute drive to the club house.

Upon arrival, had to fix garage door sensors to shut the door. Found dishwasher full of dishes. Ceiling fan in master bedroom inoperative. Coffee maker inoperative. Grill on deck was disgusting. Didn't dare try the hot tub. Sheets and pillow cases had not been changed after previous visitors. Slept on the sofas. Lawn was a mess and had weeds growing through the front porch and all around the back deck. Overall not very clean. Found previous renters dental pick on the chest of drawers.

Owner did respond the day after notifying her. Just a brief email apology but no remedies. Renters beware. Noticed that the last review was from 2013.

Owner's Response: The issues this renter addressed as concerns were immediately brought to the attention of our staff of maintenance and cleaning crew. The coffee pot did work because the cleaning people used it while they cleaned the home for this rental. The ceiling fan worked as well although someone pulled the sting to adjust the speed a little too hard and it is now permanently on low, which will be addressed. The garage door worked perfectly fine when the maintenance and cleaning crew were there however, at some point during the guests stay someone knocked the sensor and the guest did need to move it slightly to get the door to close. Our add does not suggest that the property is "ON" the water but that it is across the street from the water, we also did not suggest that it is "ON" the golf course but that it "by" the golf course. Unfortunately this was a guest who was seeking a refund and didn't want to pay for his stay but it was good enough to stay his entire reservation time. Several of his complaints listed here were never mentioned to me until this review. Landlords Beware.

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house, we had a great time in South Fork,

Our first day we took a 22 mile drive up through Beaver creek back to Del Norte, beautiful drive

Then we took a drive to Creede where went for a four hour hike at Miners creek

The next day we went horseback riding in Cottonwood Cove, Wagon Wheel Gap.

Fishing was next on our agenda at Beaver creek lake. Our last day we drove

to Del Norte and Alamosa for some shopping. All in all it was a vacation we'll never forget. This house had all we needed, it really felt like home. Thank you for renting it out to us. We're already planning on going back next year, maybe in March ..Lord willing
