Never stay here again

  • 1 of 5

I recently stayed at this cottage from 08/16/17-08/21/17. Although I have never written a review before, the awful conditions that I experienced while staying here need to be addressed. First, I was renting this property for a fishing trip. Due to unforeseen weather changes, I emailed the property owner a couple of days in advance asking to move my reservation up for one day. The owner respond was “Unfortunately based on other check ins cleaning schedule etc we cannot sorry”. I then checked to see if there were additional reservations made for the day after and there were not, 5 units available. The ironic thing is that his reason for “cleaning” was untrue seeing as I was shortly about to find out that all renters are required to do a complete cleaning of the property when they leave. Second, the WIFI that was described to at least work was untrue as well. It took 10 minutes for me to load a weather page, let alone be able to access anything else. I also asked the owner specifically if there was an outdoor gas grill to which he told me yes before I arrived. Although this was present, it was broken and therefore unusable. However, the worst part of my stay was the 5 page packet of information I received one day prior to my arrival. On the 3rd page the following is listed:

Please leave the units as clean as you found them when you arrived.

1. Wash and disinfect the shower walls and faucets and clean the bathroom toilet and sink

2. Wipe down kitchen area, counters, refrigerator, oven, microwave, kitchen table, and placemats

3. Wash all dishes, cups, silverware, etc. and put away; clean the grill

4. Wet mop vinyl floor areas, vacuum all areas, and shake rugs outside

5. Dust all obvious areas and empty refrigerators and cupboards of perishables and wipe down

NONE of this had been mentioned on the website when I was booking this stay. Had I known that I was required to be their complete cleaning service as well I would have NEVER stayed here. This is completely absurd to require customers to MOP and VACUUM the floor. I am absolutely enraged with this entire stay. I would NEVER stay here again, and recommend that everybody reading this does the same.

Overpriced, Under Maintained

  • 1 of 5

If you are looking for a secure and comfortable place to sleep, dont go. Old push lock for exterior door. No chain, no deadbolt. Only thing up to date was microwave. WiFi not consistent. Two single hooks to hang items on. You are paying for the pool and view of the bay and the privilege of cleaning their cottages for them. These are not worth their price. Have stayed in 2000 sq ft cabins with hot tub and sleep 8-10 for cheaper than this.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments.We have owned and operated Younkers Cottages LLC for 14years without ever having a safety or security issue.We rent only to family oriented groups and screen each one of our renters .Our units are professionally cleaned before each new group comes in.You are correct ,our heated inground pool located right on Sandusky Bay and the views of the Bay and our boat docks is second to none in the Marblehead area.Our pool service is professionally maintained on a daily basis and our website pictures are very accurate and appropriately displayed...also our prices are clearly indicated for each of our 10 units.Our listing of unit 1 which you rented clearly states it is 360 square feet cottage that sleeps 5 , not any where near a 2000 square foot cabin with hot tub that sleeps 8 to 10 ... Because of the demand for our units each year we have to turn down many potential guests .

Great Time at Younkers!

  • 5 of 5

A group of 9 of us went to spend 4th of July weekend out here while it was close to Put N Bay. We are all 24-26 and had an absolute BLAST! The cottages were able to hold us all the pool was fun and the boats were a nice touch too. We also ordered pizza from one of the menus provided at check in.

My family rented the cottages for a long weekend. We were very happy with location and quite clean units. the pool was cleaned every day. The cottages are simple but its all we needed. The fishing dock also got alot of use along with the row boats. The pictures were very good. Thanks Will

reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our family rented 5 of the cabins for a long weekend. We really enjoyed our stay. We had access to everything that we needed for our stay. The cabin were very rustic but clean. The pool and recreation hall was great. The children loved the poo,l and the view was breathtaking. We also enjoyed the rowboats and campfire. Though we can't go back this summer, we hope to book in 2016. Thanks for the great time!!!

Just ok

  • 2 of 5

My family and I rented 2 cottages this past July. I have put off writing a review as I see another post that complained and management jumped on them. I base a lot on reviews on VRBO and TripAdvisor so I want others to know of our experience. Let me start off by saying I booked these well in advance and sent the deposit. Then I get a call that the cabin isn't available that we had originally reserved so they moved us to another cabin. Fine. We have stayed at several other locations in Marblehead similar to Younker's as we do this every July. I was disappointed that payment in full was due weeks prior to arrival. I'm in the hospitality industry and while I see their point, none of the other locations required this and I had a credit card on file. Fine. We check in, no electricity in the kitchen. We called over 4 times and finally got a call back. They walked my brother through how to fix it. It is annoying that no one is on site here. This went on for about 2 hours and our food was sitting out. Not good. Bad first impression. The main thing that really ticked us off was when you check in there is a note from management, stating that the cabin must be totally cleaned and you should give yourself a full hour to get this done prior to check out or you may lose your deposit. So my mother and I swept and mopped and cleaned and scrubbed for WAY more than an hour as it was a very rainy week I even scrubbed the carpets. So afraid of not getting our deposit back. RIDICULOUS! YOU CLEAN IT!! So the last day of our vacation was spent being maids. Again, we have stayed at several locations similar to this and we will never be back.

Owner's Response: We only ever move a guest from one unit to another when we can better accomodate them and is done only with the guests permission.All of our guests know when they book with us that we do not have an office on-site , what our payment and return of security deposit policy is, what the general cleaning instructions are and when the check out time is;all of this information is included in our standard rental agreement which we provide in writing to our guests within two days of the time they book with us and is also contained in a notebook we leave on the kitchen table of the unit for when our guests arrive.We do offer cleaning services for a fee which was declined by you;this is how we keep our high quality family cottages at a reasonable price.We promptly return all phone calls and did not ever receive 4 calls from any person , before calling them back. Concerning the power outage,our maintenance manager walked your brother through , on the phone, how to reset a blown fuse which was overloaded by your group plugging in too many appliances in one unit.
