I've got to say they sure make the place look adorable online. We rented cabin 1, the largest and the only with a full kitchen.
I'll start with the good things, why I give it 2 stars rather than 1 star:
- Had a full kitchen (it was stocked, that was nice)
-Private (meaning not attached to another room)
-Separate bedroom (for my husband and I)
-Close to the caves
Why it deserves a 1 star
THE PLACE WAS A DUMP
-Paint chipping, carpet ripped in many spots, and so matted and musty and gross that we didn't dare put our bare feet on the floor.
-Pull out couch was unbearable to sleep on, thankfully with just 4 of us, we were able to pull the mattress from the 2nd bed in the bedroom out to put in the livingroom area.
-The couch and 2 chairs in the living room were old and broken, almost like they were found on the side of the road.
-One of the doors to the outside in the bedroom wasn't even on hinges, it was held up by just the lock on the right side, but both hinges were missing on the wall part.
-The furnace it once had no longer worked so electric heaters were placed throughout the place. It was comfortable, but where there once was a furnace vent is now just so gross with trash and it's not clean.
This place needs some TLC, that's really all. Paint, carpet (and covering up the vent that is no longer used) and newer furniture would do wonders for the place. It wouldn't even cost them much, maybe 2 weeks worth of rental, tops.
I'm sorry, I would NOT recommend this place to anyone until they fix it up. We also never saw the owners other than check in and check out. No checking on us at all and we were there 4 nights.
