Loved the location - right next to the river! Very peaceful atmosphere next to a horse pasture with a horse and lots of deer. The property has a fire pit and bbq and has all the amenities you need for your stay in Winthrop. We discovered a nice walking path close to the house that leads all the way into town. The path crosses through private property with horse pastures and we were greeted by 10 or so horses along the trail. Super fun. I'm giving this a 4 out of 5 simply because the upstairs bathroom does not have a shower and only has a tub. We used this and it used up all the hot water and the others in the household had cold showers. Additionally, the bedding is a little light - The thin blanket and comforter comb wasn't warm enough in the middle of the night. It was unusually cool for a Winthrop summer night but should have extras in stock. I would love to stay here again!
The positives....amazing location. Can't beat the river setting amongst the trees.
The negatives.....broken dishwasher and washing machine. Plates were put away filthy in the cupboard. Towels upstairs were wet when we checked in. Ceiling fan held together by bungee cords/rubber bands. The weeds were growing up against the house and need to be maintained. Kitchen table and chairs were wobbly and cracked. I appreciate rustic, but this wasn't rustic. It was poor maintenance. I feel like many of these can be fixed relatively easily, but the fact that they haven't made the stay a disappointment.
would love to come back with grandkids to enjoy the porch and riverside exploring.
This property is nothing like the pictures. I don't think any yard maintenance has been performed this year, the steps to the front door were blocked by overgrown bushes. The vegetation in the backyard was almost waist high. The home needs to cleaned from top to bottom, it smells like someone vomitted in one of the bedrooms. The worst part, this house shares a driveway with some sort of business that is right next door. There are several campers out front with people sitting around, it appears that they all live there. We decided not to stay the night and paid extra to stay elsewhere. This owner declined our request for a refund. We have used VRBO over 20 times and this is hands down the worst, and it's the first time we have ever been forced to select an alternate property. Beware!
The river, the home, the sounds of the water, the deer, the birds, the cool breeze while sitting in the adirondack chairs hoisted me away to peace and tranquility. The home was well appointed with all necessities and the upstairs rooms had diverse and spectacular views. Each room's vista created a panorama of the outdoor scenery. A trip to the local grocery reaped a bounty of delectable local vegetables, coffee, fresh baked bread, brownies and salmon which we feasted on for the whole trip. Perfect vacation at a perfect place.....
This is a lovely house by the river and beautiful views. My kids and I had a great time once we figured out the heating controls :-)
The cross country skiing trails are a short walk and downtown Winthrop a short drive. The host Monica was very helpful.
We will certainly be back.
