Cabin PROS –
1.Kitchen – Has all the amenities/cooking utensils you need. Large kitchen table. However, 2 of 6 wood chairs are broke and will collapse when sat on at any moment.
Cabin NEGATIVES – posted backwards because #1 is too important to NOT read first
1.Filthy cabin - we finally enter the cabin. What a shock. The cabin was covered with cob webs from top to bottom…on the walls, ceilings, in the bathrooms, in the bedrooms, baseboards and in the kitchen. The linens on ALL beds were NEVER changed from previous guests and spiders were in the pillow cases on one of the beds. Blankets were tossed on the closet floor. It looked like the cleaners pulled the blankets up over the mattresses and walked away. The carpet on all levels was dirty and never vacuumed from previous guests. Minus the spiders in the bathroom, both were clean.
2.3 Level Cabin with very steep stairs to level 2 and 3. 1st floor is living room, laundry room, bathroom/ bedroom. 2nd floor is kitchen, dining room, bedroom/bathroom. 3rd floor is loft.
3.Again, who’s ever job it is to clear the property of snow did NOT do their job. The stairs that lead to the front door was knee high packed with snow. I expected to arrive to walk in the cabin. Not arrive to shovel snow. Oh but they do have snow shovels on hand for your convenience.
4.If arriving in the winter - Cabin driveway is a very narrow long "tandem" parking space literally between 2 huge pine tree trunks and with a pretty good slope. My husband’s truck literally slide into one of the pine trunks because the driveway was not cleared properly of snow and ice. We finally got the truck unstuck and it took an hour for the guy to arrive to throw gravel down. We ended up parking on the front side of the cabin where the front door is but had to move quickly to avoid being towed.
Overall impression – The cabin needs a deep cleaning; new beds; new couches - the mattresses are horrible on ALL beds; couches are worn out down to the springs and DO NOT HAVE A PULL OUT BED. There is only 1 T.V. in the cabin which worked fine. Heater downstairs works great but heater up stairs does not work well. We froze throughout the night. Cabin needs some serious cleaning and TLC. It is most definitely NOT worth the rental amount. Valentine, from the rental office immediately sent her top cleaning crew to cabin. We had to leave for 2 hours after just arriving but the guy and his did a fantastic job.
