Owner refused to communicate with us and would not refund money she owed us.

  • 1 of 5

The property was fine, but the owner would not respond to us to refund money. And the money still hasn't been refunded after several attempts to contact her and weeks have now passed.

Owner's Response: Christine I apologize for any confusion that you may have regarding the fees that were charged for your stay. As was clarified by both myself and by Homeaway customer service, the $25 pet fee that you agreed to pay at the time of booking is a fee, not a refundable deposit and as such will not be refunded.

Fantastic Four Days at The Hobbitt House

  • 5 of 5

The Hobbitt House in South Ogden, UT was perfect for our needs Mon-Thurs nights and was our first time to rent a vacation home. For four days, we paid the daily $89 plus $10 extra person ($99) and a $25 cleaning fee. A $43 ($10.75 daily) service fee to VRBO was added that I hadn't read about. After I reserved it online, we were confirmed 24 minutes later.

It was a one-level, cozy, casual, comfortable, 1400 sq ft, very clean, cottage-style home with 2 bedrooms--1 king, 1 double bed with a strong ladder to a top twin bunk with a strong rail.

The one spacious bathroom had XL thick towels, tub/shower, and washer/dryer.

Kitchen cupboards and drawers had everything we needed (even included some pantry items and many baking ingredients). There was a Keurig coffee machine with coffee k-cups. We bought groceries and ate here every meal. From the kitchen sliding doors, there is a gorgeous view of the mountains.

One length of the house is solid floor-to-ceiling windows in the long dining room, living room, and king bedroom. One day we watched the beautiful snow falling in the wooded back yard. The large solid dining table has 8 chairs. A tray of 5 pillar candles had a remote that made them change colors and was fun during dinnertime.

The living room has a leather-like sofa, indoor gas log firepit, foosball, and XL sectional sofa, TV, wifi, and a nice mounted pronghorn antelope. Kitchen and bathroom flooring is nice flat tile. Other rooms have large rugs, runners, and a bit of uneven stone flooring, no wall-to-wall carpeting. Lighting was dim in some rooms, but it was not a problem for us. Just inside the front door is a pretty rock wall feature.

There is a wrap-around "boardwalk" with a nice wood deck, gas grill, and padded chairs. You can park in a one-car carport and the long driveway. We opened the sliding doors for fresh air that first day with beautiful weather. There are nice stepping stones around one side of the house.

Thank you, Traci, we totally enjoyed our time with family and all the little things you provided like the afghan and fuzzy blanket we used on the sectional as we watched one night of March Madness basketball!

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Went for skiing @ two area resorts with my two teenage boys. The place was perfect for this--20-30 minutes drive. Fireplace, sleeping beds for all of us, comfy couch to rest and everything we needed. Kitchen had all the necessities-spices, crockpot, even foil and plastic wrap. Owner was responsive, and pleasant even came to clear driveway of snow in the dark to make sure we could get out. In S.Ogden so if you need to rent skis, get grocs, restaurants are all minutes away.

Cozy and comfortable home!

  • 5 of 5

Overall, we loved our stay at the Hobbit House. It was clean and everything we needed in the kitchen, bathroom and bedroom was provided. Unfortunately, in the master bedroom the mattress on one side sagged and if you try to sit on it you will slide out of bed. Our 3 kids had plenty of room to play and the adults enjoyed the fireplace and mingled in the spacious living room. The Foosball game was great fun for the entire family. The view of the mountains in front of the house is fabulous and grocery shopping is nearby. The owner was always available and we would definitely stay at the Hobbit House again.
