Sad and potentially dangerous
This house is very old and comes with many issues. The stairs are very steep without adequate handrails or lighting. Two of the bedrooms are on the upper floor and one queen bed is on the ground floor. There is no egress from the top floor in case of an emergency i.e. fire ladder and windows painted shut. The wiring is questionable with sparks coming from several sockets when plugged in and several that did not work. This property is not for anyone of any age with any type of mobility issue. The stone walkway is unstable and there was a three foot deep hole in the front yard left uncovered.
This house is furnished with thrift shop items-worn furniture, threadbare and stained linens, incomplete sets of dishes and flatware plus a 2-cup coffeemaker for a property that supposedly sleeps at least 6 people. One of the beds upstairs is a futon sofa with a very lumpy mattress.
The entire property is a DYI nightmare. Since I live in a house that is 90 years old I am familiar with the issues involved with refurbishing an aging house. Obviously the owner is not. There is nothing appealing about this property or the neighborhood.
Hey, Joel. Thanks for the feedback. I really wish you hd talked to me before you published such a mean review. I’m sure you’re a much better builder and rehab person of old properties, but your review hurt me, didn’t help you and wasn’t particularly encouraging. I’m sorry you had such a horrible stay. Of the many renters we’ve had over the years, you’re the first one to have a negative reaction.
We are constantly working to make this house more fun Andrew more livable. We will take your suggestions to heart.
Quality was about as expected for the price
Was good to be in black mountain. sleeping facilities for 5 people were upstairs. The description in the listing info didn't state that there building was two level. This was a problem for some of the guest.
Home Away From Home
I stayed at Cardinal Cottage for a month while I enjoyed the beautiful fall in the mountains, explored the towns of Black Mountain and Asheville and looked at real estate. The Cottage met all of my needs and was a perfect place to bring my dog. I loved being close to town and the interstate so exploration was easy. A few small problems (like I couldn't work the TV!) arose and the owners were always very responsive and helpful. I would certainly recommend the home for someone on a budget that would like their own space.
Hey, Sandy! I was just going through old reviews and wanted to see what we could have done to encourage you to give us 5 stars? I'm open to any and all suggestions!
