The property is beautiful and well located. The interior is accurately reflected in the photos, dated but functional. The interior appeared clean, but we found a dead mouse and droppings. The owner was very nice and responsive, but we had threw out the mouse and changed the sheets ourselves. The owner refunded the cleaning deposit.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback. The mouse issue has been completely taken care of now. Due to the extreme cold weather of the time of this rental a few mice got it the house for warmth. An exterminator was called and the problem was dealt with promptly. This is a ranch so there can be critters outside. We've never had this extreme issue before.

Big open property with a very unique house. Comfortable and had everything you could want.

  • 5 of 5

My cycling team enjoyed the space. It had a great garage to hold our gear, a backyard to just relax, big grounds to explore, a huge house that's easy to get lost in, and a big kitchen to socialize around food. The area was great with small towns to explore. The cable TV needs some maintenance but we weren't there for TV! Low hassle and was great for a rainy weekend.

large property, fantastic location close to town, architecture is dark indoors

  • 4 of 5

it was a last minute reservation so we were super pleased to get it, although owner was difficult to get in touch with in a rush. At the end she made it happen and we had a great time.

heating the pool is extra but it wasn't working anyway.

Also including fees it came to $967/night more than 35% higher that the advertised $700/night. There's tax plus extra 10% service fee (VRBO fee?) which I know it's isn't the owner's fault but the cleaning fee was also very high

Owner's Response: Normally we book more than 24 hours in advance. This was a special last minute reservation that we did our best to accommodate. Our cleaning fee is $200 which we feel is reasonable for 10 plus people. The house is large and requires a cleaning lady to be there 2 full days in a row. We make nothing on the cleaning fee and pay the housekeeper $100/ day. Unfortunately VRBO is now charging an extra tax that they keep for themselves which drives our end price up at check out. We are a flat $700/ night. $1000 refundable security deposit and $200 cleaning fee. By law we have to charge a 10% bed tax. We also charge a $50 fee for animals and the pool fee to heat it is $75.
