We stayed in Rosencranz Rendevous for one week. We also had our dog with us. This cabin was really awful. It was very old and rundown and unkept. The hot tub had a ring of scum at the waterline that we had to scrub before we could use it. The cabin was full of very big spiders - we killed one in the kitchen almost every day. The carpet in the master bedroom had large stains on it and was very dirty. The bathroom door was busted and you could barely get it to stay shut.
The firescreen on the fireplace was severly damaged and offered no protection to the hardwood floors from sparks and popping wood. There wasn't even a hearth rug to protect the floors. Made us very nervous even to make a fire, which we did only once.
There was at least an inch of grease and debris in the oven, which we had to clean before we could even use it. When we turned it on, the fire alarm went off before we realized the grease was there. The skillets were in terrible condition and made it very difficult to try to cook a meal. We actually went out and bought a mop and bottle of Lysol to clean the floors because we just couldn't stand that the place was so dirty. I noticed there was a note from the management on the kitchen counter to please leave a tip to the housekeeper when you left for all of her hard work to clean your cabin. We almost laughed - I don't know who is cleaning here, but I think she forgot her assignment and passed on this cabin. This cabin was dark and the windows were full of spiderwebs and other debris which was kind of creepy.
We walked around the grounds, which contained several other cabins. No one was renting the other cabins that day, so we took the opportunity to look at them. We noticed they were all newer, cleaner, and looked very nice. I don't know if the fact that we had a dog literally put us in the "dog cabin", but we were definitely in the worse cabin in the place.
This cabin nearly ruined our vacation. We travel quite a bit and always travel with our dog. We have never stayed in a place so depressing!! If you consider staying here, better not take your dog and make sure you stay in one of the other cabins.
We were told we would receive $75.00 of our dog deposit back if there was no damage to the cabin. We never received this back from the owner, even though there was no damage. In fact, this cabin was cleaner when we left than when we arrived, because we cleaned it!!
