Two months prior to Labor Day, & having never been here I specifically asked for a quiet, secluded location, pet friendly. Many were available, but was given suggestion of #24 or #12. We rented "eidelweiss".
Here's what we got (remember, YOU ultimately choose which property you rent, so research and ask around if you've never been here):
The king bed provided the worst sleep ever. Very worn out, lumpy, with rubber sheets that provided a thorough sweat. The sleeper sofa was marginally better, per our 13y/o son. The 5/6 sleeping arrangements were two foam cushions on a plywood platform that also served as couches by day. Good enough for our 9y/o son, as he said, at least its not the floor...
I hated the mini golf being next door. Its open all day to 10 pm. Its loud and brightly lit. You have a perfect view of it & the rv park from the porch. I had hoped that "quiet and secluded" meant the same thing in Richland as it did in Oregon...not so.
On the bright side, the toilet plugged up solid the second day. Luckily enough, the renter next door complained to the mgmt that our family dog was next to her porch at the same time the toilet ran over. So they were prompt to fix it since they were already on their way here to deliver us 'notice'. They are serious about leashes here. You cant let ur dog out even if the property you rent is nearly 2 acres. And we didnt get the 'pet welcome pack' others referred to.
Everything here is way overpriced. So with that in mind, we got a 'cheap motel quality' cabin. No biggie. Just wished they were more up front with the overcrowded-ness and proximity to high traffic/noise areas. I think it'd be fair to include these 'attractions' on the cabin map for us uneducated visitors to consider.
