Rustic fishing cabin
This place is more like going to Grandpa's fishing cabin for a visit. What we were expecting was a comfortable, rustic cabin. It was rustic, but it wasn't comfortable. First the good stuff: The river is beautiful. No long range views, but the river is clear and pretty. The kitchen has a Viking range and griddle and a small granite counter top island (totally not expecting this - not necessary, but nice). The hot tub was a lot fun for our teenagers. The rock fireplace is beautiful. The place was not dusty and overall seemed clean. The downsides: The beds were uncomfortable, (the King was okay, but it shares a bathroom upstairs with 2 other rooms), the loft bedroom doesn't have a side table or lamp, the pillows are old and stained, there were plenty of towels, but some were old and stained, the living room doesn't have a coffee table or side tables, there is no view from inside the house, the main living area downstairs including the kitchen is dark, there was litter on the grounds, the griddle on the Viking was not clean, the pantry door was off the hinges, the pantry itself was in disarray and dirty, the fireplace starter was completely un-wired (we re-wired it so the fireplace would work). There was limited WiFi that allowed texting only - no internet or telephone calls. The hot tub is completely exposed to the road - no privacy. Finally, get a total price on this cabin while you are considering it along side others - they do not offer a refundable deposit, instead charging an insurance fee plus a VRBO fee on top of the listed price. We thought we were getting a deal but this turned out to be the same price as a much nicer place that includes these added fees in the advertised price. This cabin has tons of potential - it sorely needs updates and an advertised nightly rate inclusive of add-on fees. As is, it would be perfect for a group of fishermen who don't care about any of that stuff.
