I picked SquawLodge as the site for my best friend’s bachelorette due to the large great room with lots of seating for our group. We had 11 people, each with their own bed, which was amazing to have in a house. We cooked most of our meals there and really appreciated the open floor plan. We didn’t really do much...

Management response:

Thank you again for choosing SquawLodge for your special weekend. In the future, please let us know if you'd like to have an early check-in or a late check-out. We try to accommodate our guests when possible so that you can relax and enjoy your stay.

This is way too many communications for only two nights on...

Management response:

1) We are glad that you had fun at SquawLodge and grateful that you took the time to recognize her excellent service to our guests. 2) We have 41 emails concerning your rental and agree that is excessive. Between 6/22 to 6/25, while you inquired about renting, sent required paperwork, and asked additional questions, SquawLodge’s replies were bounced by your...
