Cozy Cabin

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was easy to find and very comfortable. We loved the floor plan, it was built with cozy in mind, and very convenient to Pinecrest. The cabin was neat, but was a bit outdated. The only con we have was the BBQ. We brought some nice meat to grill for our meals but found the BBQ propane was completely empty. We immediately notified the owner by email for some type of resolution, but the delayed response was non accommodating, and non sympathetic. We had to use the oven in 90 degree heat, and decided after the first day to dine out and take the meat back home. We still had a great time and would return again, but the BBQ thing was a bummer.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately I was traveling myself during your stay and apologize that I was not responsive around the BBQ propane. We now have 2 tanks and should not have this problem again! So sorry!

Cozy cabin with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cabin and the new beds are a huge improvement. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes, pots and kitchen tools and we like the functional layout of the main room. The kids like having their own room and bathroom downstairs. The cabin is easily accessed from the highway, no steep driveway or stairs involved. Overall a great place to stay for our family of five at a reasonable price.

Nice cabin. A few issues need to be addressed...

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at your was perfect for us. The new queen beds were very comfortable. The two twins down stairs need new mattresses. The upstairs was very comfortable except for the "couch beds" they need to be replaced as well. Hand rails need to be installed on the stairs! You need to purchase a baby gate that will fit across the stairs. The one that I brought was too small and we extended to out all the way! Some of your cleaning equipment needs to be replaced or parts replaced (new mop head, vacuum bag, vacuum needs repair, cannot adjust the vacuum from floor to carpet.) I ended up hand mopping the bathroom floors and the rags I used were black from the floors. I do not think the floors had been cleaned in a long time.

Down stairs where the water heater is located and you have to turn everything on and off, the areas should be marked in a bright color so they are easily found. When using the thermostat to heat the house the large floor grates are very dangerous! We did not use the heater after we realized the large floor vent were HOT! Where they are located it is not that easy to walk around them nor step over. And need to get pest control service in your home. We killed "9" quarter sized spiders up stairs!! Other than the mentioned issues we would consider renting your cabin again! Thank you.

Good cabin and location but, very bad beds

  • 3 of 5

The cabin is well located and easy to find. The owner was responsive. The cabin was comfortable and a good size for our needs but, the beds were atrocious and our party suffered the extent that we cut our trip short. We were surprised at the poor quality of the mattresses and felt that we would like to return to this cabin but, would not if the beds were not updated.

Also, the cleaning is done by the guests and we found the house without soap and only one half roll of toilet paper in each bathroom. The bathroom rugs were very dirty and I am not sure that the guests before us would have cleaned the toilets and showers.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and the cabin but, again it was rather spoiled by the poor mattress quality.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. We have only had one other concern about the beds and will be replacing them soon. In terms of the other problems reported, our cleaning lady was there in between the other party leaving and you arriving. She always makes sure the place was left clean. If she missed something I apologize as she was also dealing with replacing the front door lock at that time. I'm glad you found your trip enjoyable!

Great family cabin at an affordable price

  • 4 of 5

We had a great weekend staying at the cabin with our three kids. It is just off the main road and easy to find, which was perfect for us as we didn't have chains and arrived after dark.

The kitchen is well equipped, the living / dining room felt spacious and comfortable. The downstairs bedroom is perfect for kids, with three beds plus two trundles. There are plenty of pillows and blankets for everyone. The only downside was the bed in the upstairs bedroom, which is narrow (full size) and uncomfortable.

Overall it was a great experience and we would happily rent the cabin again.
