“Very Strong Mildew Odor”
Reviewed July 31, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

person found this review helpful

We have this reserved for July 27 - 30. The last .3 tenths of a mile had a gravel rd that had been washed out terribly. We were in a CRV and scraped bottom in a couple places. Once at the cabin we opened the door and the mildew smell was awful. The lower level is a basement w/ narrow steep dark stairs ( no light) and the lower bathroom is very old and worn. Needs new caulking and the light cover was just hanging there. Shower curtain was mildewed as well. Carpet was very dirty and worn. Housekeeping came back and was shocked at how strong the smell was. Patriot Getaways should not manage this property anymore until these issues are resolved. Sadly we won't be staying in their cabins again because of this and the fact that they charged us an upgrade to move to the only cabin they had open. The move should have been at NO CHARGE.

How easy was it to book the property? How helpful were the directions to the property?
How easy was key pickup/access to the property? Overall condition of the property

Liked best: Nice kitchen
Liked least: Dirty Mildew smell throughout the cabin. Second bedroom is in the BASEMENT

I want to apologize for the ordor that was in Raccoon's Rest. I checked the surveys from recent guests and no one reported the problem. I will certainly have our housekeeping manager inspect the property. All our properties are privately owned and I will share your comments to the owner and make sure the complaints you mentioned are addressed. I apologize for these issues and assure you we will take steps to see that they are fixed for future guests.

“worst cabin rental ever!!”

Well let's start with spiders!! They were everywhere!! Every corner had a spider web along with a spider!! One almost fell on my head in the shower!! Then there was the stinch of urine all throughout the place!! The "screened in porch" was attached by duct tape with the holes filled in with newspaper!! My kids were to scared to even sleep downstairs!! There was alsohuge millipedes crawling all over the place!! We saw a couple of salamanders on the back porch, which freaked my kids out!! I understand we are in the mountains but this was not my first cabin experience, I've never stayed in a cabin that a company neglected the upkeep on like this before!! Were wanted to grill out but couldn't due to the extremely large spider that was living on it!! Then the game room TV would not work, you couldn't even play pool because the room was so small your stick hit the walls. My kids didn't get to go in the hot tub due to all the millipedes in and around it. There was also ants everywhere. Most uncomfortable beds/pillows ever. None of us slept all 3 nights due to being uncomfortable and scared to death a spider was going to drop on our head in our sleep.. We kept the lights on at all times. We were so disappointed with this stay :( never again!! Also there is no hairdryer as stated so please bring your own... We really debated on getting this cabin or splurging on a slightly bigger/better one... Don't stay here it's worth the extra 50-100$ to get a nice cabin somewhere else. I would not recommend this cabin to anyone. We never had contact with the company throughout the entire stay.. There was no "I hope you enjoyed your stay" you call a number, get your key code and that's it, you don't see or speak to anyone. So if you're sending on this cabin or a different one, I would definitely not choose this one!!!
