“Cedar Cottage - Not exactly as advertised if you want 'clean'”
Reviewed October 16, 2010

My goal is to be accurate so that you are advised of what this cabin is all about. The first thing we noticed upon walking in was the odor of what seemed like cigarette smoke mixed with mildew. It was not something you could get used to. It demanded open windows to reduce it to toloerable levels. We slept with many windows open to reduce this pungent smell. I did wonder what was causing it, and it appears the source of the mildew was wet floors in the bath area, as they were buckled really badly, to the point I was cautious of where I stepped just outside the shower. The floor structure is in need of major improvement. The carpet is in really poor shape overall, and simply awful in the bathroom area. The kitchen area wall paper was really yellowed and many kitchen utensils were gummy with what appeared to be be greese. The unit needed cleaned very badly, examples, really dusty and the bathroom vent had dust caked on it and had not been cleaned for an extended time.

On the bright side, I do note the bed cloths and towels seemed freshly laundred. There were absolutly no signs of any insects or pests anywhere. The hot tub was nice and seemed propperly chorinated. The unit has really ample space and was equipped with a nice fire place and extras in the kitchen area. The tap water was clean with no detectable odor / color. The unit sits on a very pretty lot with really tall pine trees and dense woods. The owner / manager was very nice to us in evey way and seems a nice fellow. We did not address any issues with him as there was no real way to address them in any time permissive way. There was a nice HDTV and DVD player in the livingroom.

Summary: An old facility with serious clenliness issues and some structural concerns on a nice lot managed (owned?) by a nice fellow. The photos on the web page are misleading so I assume that is why they are so small and lack detail. So that you wil be advised...
