Great Outdoor Rentals Complaint

I was told Bearfootin Too was accessible by our rig (a F350 crewcab pulling a 24 foot car trailer). We drove 12 hours to get to the cabin and could not get the rig up to it. Also, the road to the cabin was not safe for us to ride our motorcycles. The manager refunded all our money to us except $120, which we feel we are owed as we were lied to about the accessibility to the cabin. I have filed a complaint to the BBB, but we are basically out our money. We will never stay with these people. You can see the entire complaint here:

What I have encountered while being in the mountains is some of the roads are steep, narrow and scary. However, I have also found people who have lived there all their lives do not agree. They drive on these roads all the time and can be within inches from the edge and feel safe. They are more comfortable driving on them. Same thing goes will hauling equipment or long trailers.

Good luck on getting all of your money back.

2. Re: Great Outdoor Rentals Complaint

I just returned home from a stay in a Great Outdoors rental cabin and was very dissatisfied by the lack of hospitality and cleanliness of our cabin. Sheets were stinky and had hairs on them, soap scum on the shower door wall,dust everywhere and cobwebs on the lamps. Jacuzzi ran out of hot water before the water even reached the jets.I have pictures to prove all of this. When I complained they defended themselves and insisted it was cleaned and acted like I was lying so I took photos of everything. I never got so much as an apology or offer to come out and clean the cabin.I just filed a complaint with the BB as well. I will NEVER stay here again and feel we deserve at least half our money back.

I looks as though you've taken the appropriate action. Anyone who's driven a 1 ton truck pulling a trailer probably understands the difficulty you faced with multiple switchbacks on a mountain road.

I often wonder how they get long lengths of lumber and timber up there to build those cabins.
