I joined the group that stays at the house the 2nd week of Sep and had a great time. The rooms were clean and well kept. Th kitchen was well stocked and had all the goods for preparing breakfast, lunch and dinner. The folks on the golf course are very accommodating and professional. Great facility if you want to play and not have to drive to/from course. The course is short but tough, allot of greens sloping back to front and narrow landing areas, definitely target golf and allot of elevation changes. Course was in great shape...pta
We have a group of golfers that has been coming to this home for more than 10 years. We typically have at least 18, but have had 28. This place is fantastic for big groups. We never felt crowded, your'e steps from the 1st tee, and the pool and hot tub are clean and warm. It is a bit dated, but that is part of the charm for me. The owners continually update the infrastructure, and there still is some work to be done, but the bedrooms and bathrooms are clean. The Florida room over looks the large pool and is perfect for dining and meeting. It is steps from the patio and gas grills. We love this place and look forward to coming back every year.
My group has stayed here for annual golf outings for over a decade. We typically have up to 30 people staying in the house and it never seems crowded. The owner, Rob, does his best to accommodate all of our needs and any problems that do arise are promptly taken care of. The house is huge and the pool and hot tub are a great bonus after golfing all day. We have held our outings elsewhere in the past but when we found this place we didn't feel the need to go anywhere else. Unlike the townhome set ups of other golf resorts, there is plenty of room for our entire group to meet in one place and have dinner, play cards, or watch sports on TV. We will be coming here for a long time.
My extended family and I stayed at "Resort on the Course" over the Fourth of July holiday and had a great time. I found the house to be a little dirty although the toilets and sinks where clean - there were socks etc under the my bedand some of the sheets had not been cleaned. Many of the light switches didn't work.
The pool was old but clean and in great working order...and all of the kids in our group liked the video game!
As a group we had concerns regarding safety (smoke detectors, exposed wiring
etc, sewage odor in portable area) which we mentioned to owner after our visit. He was responsive and refunded a small part of our payment. I was not happy that he asked us NOT to review the property.
This cottage is fantastic and enormous! Not only spacious and clean but has best location. The owners are communicative and accommodating.Last summer, my extended family stayed and everyone had a great time! The large indoor pool, Jacuzzi tub, and golf course kept 27 of us busy for hours. Evenings were spent by fire, watching kids catch fireflies, the grounds and woodland area surrounding the cottage are gorgeous. Our teens jammed down to the basement for a game of pool(billiards) and music. We were tremendously pleased, so we revisited in February. This time, I invited all girls-29 total. Talk about the best girl's trip! We hit the nearby mountain to ski and snowboard, 20 minutes from door to door. A few gals, went sledding -in the BACKYARD of this cottage! We had a ball!This cottage is amazing and can be enjoyed anytime of the year!
- large indoor pool
- nice grill
- golf course next door
- not clean
- dated aesthetics and function (example, several doors would latch or lock, some lights had to remain on at all times)
- rust in the bath water
- strong sewage odor in basement
The rental staff did make an effort to resolve the issue in the basement but the odor did not completely go away.
I do not recommend anyone staying in this house.
