We loved everything except the steep driveway

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is very comfortable - the kitchen is well stocked with everything we needed, plenty of towels, beds were comfortable. Our dogs loved it and were very comfortable - although they preferred the steps to the front door (outside) instead of the interior stairway. The cottage itself was a nice vacation getaway. The only drawback I saw was the steep driveway into the place - first a tight right turn and then uphill - we have a 4x4 full size truck and I would not have been comfortable with it at all (my husband drove). Everything else was great - nice patios, clean, everything works (including the washer and dryer). We enjoyed it very much. Since they don't charge a cleaning fee - you do have to do some cleaning before you leave - vaccum, sweep, empty trash cans inside (take to outside cans), clean all dishes and put up, change all linens (fresh ones are nicely packaged for you so you can make each bed used) - and we started the laundry before we left. I know what the cleaning fee is for now :) I said, the only drawback is the steep driveway.

It was okay

  • 3 of 5

The rental is cute and has some quaintness. There are some drawbacks. The pictures are a little misrepresentative in the fact that there are no open fields around the house. There is only a very small area to actually walk our puppy dog around the house in. Made an unhappy puppy all week. The internet is horrible so if you are dependent on it, don't rent this. We finally got it working on the 2nd day but it was constantly in and out. The other item that was a bother is that the turn for the drive way is a very sharp right turn with a very steep climb. We have a large diesel truck and although it made the climb up the driveway just fine it was very difficult to maneuver it. The driveway was just barely wide for the truck. It is very close to Dupont State Forest so that was nice as we did several day hikes there. I had pre-checked the driveway with the manager and was told that we shouldn't have any issues. Oh well, all in all it was enjoyable but just an average stay.

Charleston, SC

Cute cabin with great potential; could use new management.

  • 3 of 5

The cabin itself is very spacious and in a great location nestled in the trees. We thoroughly enjoyed spending time on the upper deck, which is comfortably furnished. The decor is very old-timey, which I found to be charming although some people may be turned off by it. There were a few issues with the home that would deter us from staying there again. First of all, as the previous reviewer noted, there is NO WIFI. Also, there are notes all over the cabin, which is annoying. The house has 4 twin beds and 1 full bed. We didn't mind sleeping in a full bed together but it really doesn't make sense for them to have child sized beds. The dryer vent must be clogged because it took at least an hour on high heat to dry our clothes the morning we checked out. We ran into the manager/cleaner as we were loading the car and got fussed at for still being there at 11, which seemed excessive as we were obviously on our way out. I would love to see this cute cabin in the hands of a manager who can utilize it to full potential by clearing out the notes, managing the cable/internet, and getting some grown up beds.

Owner's Response: We're sorry you ran into issues during your stay. There was a cable internet outage due to storms but it was fixed pretty quickly. We will check out the dryer. Twin beds are for both kids and single adults.

Beautiful surroundsing and cozy home!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed the weekend here and had a wonderful time. The home was so comfortable and welcoming. Everything was perfect. The big porch was a wonderful place to sit, read, play games and just relax. My family came up from Florida and we all enjoyed the mountains and trees so much. The rooms were very nice and comfortable, the beds slept well and it was very cozy. I would not hesitate to book this home again. Worth the money and drive. Thank you for a lovely get away home.
