Peace and quiet
Coming from a busy urban area in the Seattle area we were looking for a place where we could unwind and have some peace and quiet. The property was neat, clean and well organized. we loved our stay and will certainly consider another. Thank You!
Thanks again for staying with us! It was lovely to meet you! Thanks for leaving everything so clean! Cheers, Alli!
“A Place You Want To Be”
This Vrbo is incredible! As a retired couple who travel 50 plus days a year, we are always looking for unique high end lodging! We were amazed upon our arrival with the location, quality & amenities of Ally’s home! She met us at the front door with a smile, and a quick tour of “home” for the next three days. The home is immaculate, and beautifully decorated throughout! We didn’t get to enjoy the hot tub & sauna amenities, as we were on a golf outing! We enjoyed some pleasant surprises that await you, if you decide to stay! This Vrbo is truly a five star! We shall return to stay!!
Extremely nice place with very nice and helpful owners that make every effort to insure we were conf
Located in walk out basement - very neatly furnished with high quality and great taste. Very quiet, away from city in gated community.
Dogs really enjoyed freedom of running in open field.
Wonderful family, very clean and quiet. Large dogs, one puppy extremely well behaved. I highly recommend them and would welcome them back anytime!
Great View and Hospitality - Misleading Pictures and Description.
While this property is beautiful, it has unfortunately been intentionally misleading in its listing description. Alli is a quite accommodating should you have any special requests and even stocks you up on snacks. The bed was very comfortable! This is honestly the reason it is so difficult to write this review, but I believe the listing does not tell the whole truth.
While listed as a “guest house” on one vacation rental site and “entire home/apartment” on another it’s actually a walk-out basement. There is no mention of it being a basement or even “lower level” on any of the websites. I asked for some clarification prior to booking, but even when specifically asked, the owner stated we live “on property” and used descriptions like “totally separated” and “private.” While you are ‘welcome to use’ the beautiful deck shown in all the pictures, it is actually off the main floor’s living room. This is not the area you are renting, but is where the owners spend their time while home. The pictures give the appearance you’ll be reading under umbrellas on a well-appointed deck and cooking on the beautiful stainless steel grill, when in actuality we had a much smaller walkway patio on the lower level with a completely different grill.
If you don’t mind sharing your time and space with some pleasant strangers, then I’m sure you could enjoy these amenities in their company while they’re home, but that is simply not what we desired and not what we thought we were renting. It would have felt uncomfortable. There is no door in the basement to the main level. You do hear the talking, footsteps and barking dogs upstairs; just as you would in any basement of any house with other people and pets upstairs. This is why we feel misled. The hot tub is accessible from the basement by walking underneath the main deck, with a clearance of about five feet. We checked it out and were met by the two dogs and discussion with the owners who were on the patio deck above it (the one pictured) and cooking at the grill (the one pictured, not the one that is there for you to use).
Lastly, don’t make the same mistake we did of looking at the map and assuming a quick proximity to the lake. It is a 25 minute drive to anything (ie. food, lake, town etc.) from this location. Again, warm hospitality, beautiful location, amazing view, well-appointed basement but make no mistake, this is not a private residence. It is a shared house, downstairs, in the basement.
Wow, the many guests who have expressed their desire to return every year will be shocked by this review. However, since we are a fairly new listing, and are always striving to improve in every way, we really do appreciate it this review.
We honestly didn't think we needed to change a single thing because all of our other guests have been extremely happy and 100% percent satisfied with our little set up here.
I communicate very well with every guest (including this one in the many, many conversations prior to booking) that we do live upstairs, divided by a stairwell. We stay on the property to maintain the lovely gardens, make sure the hot tub is sparkling clean after each use, tend to, cater to spoil and pamper our guests and prepare evening lighting. Some of our guests have wanted turn-down service, maid service, laundry service, meals prepared and served on the upper main deck outside our kitchen.
All of the areas pictured are available for your use. We recently added a grill to the lower deck for guests who wanted to prepare food closer to the downstairs kitchen. There are two entrances to the hot tub, not just the one under the upper deck. But most people prefer using that one.
I invite you to read all the reviews on VRBO and AirB&B which totally contradict this one.
I only wish this guest would have communicated his discomfort while they were here. We would have left and slept on our boat just 5 minutes away on the lake, not 25 minutes that he is claiming. Also Cedars floating restaurant is 11.5 miles from our door--beautiful fine dining.
Whenever I saw them on morning hikes in the neighborhood and asked if all was well and if I can do anything for them, the answer was yes, great and no.
From the beginning, I changed their booking dates, waived security and other fees, rescheduled their in-house 90-minute massages, removed the fresh flowers and aroma therapy from downstairs because he was sneezing. I offered to bring them take out from town. I offered to show them the lake 5 minutes away and to use the floats we provide. I offered them to come back for a free stay.
Our property is not just a rental. It's an experience. You'll find beauty, calming, peace, serenity, pampering, comfort. And only if you like and at your request join you for a glass of wine around the open fire in the front of property or the gas fire pit on the upper main deck.
We really do intend to ensure every detail is attended to in every way.Thank you.
My wife and I were in need of a weekend of relaxation and decompression, and we could not have asked for a better experience! The views are jaw dropping, the gourmet meals that were prepared for us were second to none, plus our hosts did everything possible to ensure that our stay was relaxing...what a treat!! If you are looking for first class, clean accommodations in a serene setting, we highly recommend this property.
When you book this property, do yourself a couple of favors; First, skip the trip to town for dinner because the meals that Alli prepares are extraordinary, and the views from the dinner table are unforgettable! Second, book a massage. The massage my wife received (by Mandy) was the best she has every had, so it's worth the splurge, plus the masseuse comes to you!
We can't say enough about this wonderful B&B, other than we are already trying to figure out when we will be able to return so Alli and Cindy spoil us rotten again!
