Stay in August 2019
This cabin is decorated nicely and was very clean. It's more comfortable for a family of 6 then a family of 9. The property overlooks the lake across the street and lake access is around the corner from the house. The cabin is fine, but I did not feel welcome by the owner from the beginning. We left a dishtowel and a cup out and forgot to start the dishwasher (my fault) but left the house very clean, and less than a few hours later received a negative email from the owner. We only stayed 2 nights and paid a significant cleaning fee so I thought this was unfair. Have used VRBO for over 10 years from Colorado to Maine and have never had a negative experience like this.
While a negative review certainly is disappointing to see, we are not surprised as this renter was difficult from the start. Our fees are comparable to similar properties, yet this renter insisted on a discount. She also was unresponsive to communications. Among other issues, at checkout this renter left the property unsecured with windows open when a storm was coming, as well as leaving bath towels outside .
Our description clearly indicates our home sleeps 7 Adults comfortably. There are 7 beds in 3 bedrooms. Our home has two futons which can allow for additional sleeping. Yet we limit the total number of adults and children to no more than 10.
It is customary for us to send a follow-up email to guests after the stay to say thanks for staying, communicate if anything was left or discuss any concerns. Unfortunately, with this renter there was much more than a few minor concerns, and again she did not respond to our email.
We do go out of our way to make our vacation home a pleasant experience for all guests. Our expectation is the house rules and contract obligations be respected.
We had a awesome time at the house. Great property at a great location. House is very spacious and very comfortable.
Summer Trip North
This is a very well maintained property. We were very impressed with the cleanliness. It is very easy to get too, and has enough room for a couple of trailers in the drive. If this property is available for rent on our next trip up we would stay again.
Great place. Great location for our snowmobile trip
It’s a a beautiful place and an amazing structure. There wasn’t a single thing we needed other than what we brought.
