Reviewer Comments:

The cabin was nice and the view was beautiful BUT.... the kitchen didn't have dishwashing liquid/soap or kitchen linens (drying towels or rags or pot holders). There's also a gate as you start your drive up the driveway you have to unlock and lock the padlock each time you leave or return to the cabin, and it's a gravel drive, that gave me an uneasy feeling. Also, no Wi-Fi or little cell service.

Reviewer Comments:

Very disappointed. We didn't use most of the amenities due to them being dirty. There was no point in complaining because we were unable to check everything within the timeframe requested for issues to be reported. The beds were very uncomfortable due to being worn out. Don't bother using the washer and dryer...they're ****. Definitely not what we expected our visit to be. The location was great. The staff was not very personable. We were never greeted and scolded for not answering our phone when we didn't check in right away. At check-out nothing changed...wasn't greeted again or asked how our stay was.

The cabin minus a few small things was great!! The ride in was interesting the first time but by the end of our stay we didn't have any problems. Would still recommend a 4X4 in rain or bad weather.

The pictures on the website don't do the cabin any justice. It was amazing. So clean & nice when we arrived. Now the drive up there? Woah! It snowed and our car got stuck on the winding one lane road up the mountain (its at the top) It was sooo scary! Like a scene from a movie because you are right by the cliff...Other than that ordeal, the trip was awesome. I cant wait to return and rent this same cabin again!

Reviewer Comments:

It was a fiasco from the start. Was told that we must purchase an insurance policy that we had declined at checkout on VRBO. Then told, less than 24 hrs after booking, that if we canceled nearly $200 of what we paid would be withheld. $120 for a cancellation fee, which there was no mention of on VRBO, and the non-refundable insurance policy charge. I have never in all my years of doing business on VRBO had such a horrible experience. And to make matters worse I had to be pulled away from my mini-vacation to bring in my credit card and ID to copied. Again, I have never been asked to do that with any other owner I have had the pleasure of dealing with. Your policies create a great inconvenience and leave a very bad impression.

Life's a Bear indeed

  • 1 of 5

We have had such good experiences using VRBO until now. Not long after hitting the Book Now we got a call from a representative that forced us into purchasing the insurance policy we had just declined. First thing the next morning, we called to cancel the reservation because their business practices did not sit well with us nor the price they were charging in comparison to other owners we've rented from. We were told we could cancel but they would withhold $120 for a cancellation fee and they would not refund the cost for the insurance. So, basically we would lose nearly $200 if we canceled. We decided to go ahead with our stay much to our disappointment. We nearly had an accident trying to get out of the driveway with all the rain and how steel it is. We do not have a 4x4, and there is no indication on their part that that would be needed. The cabin is quite far from everything and in a very sketchy, scary neck of the woods. It had a beautiful view, and a few nice features, which a lot of cabins have, but it was not at all worth what we paid. Not to mention all of the paperwork, and inconvenience that is required by their company policies. We have never been asked for so much from any individual we have dealt with since we started using VRBO. I do not recommend doing business with this company. And I certainly do not recommend paying what they charge for this particular cabin.
