Nicer in the photos
PROS: Bed is comfy. Toiletries were provided. The view of the lake and sunsets is beautiful! We appreciated being able to use the washer and dryer. Kevin was very helpful although he didn't introduce himself so we thought he was the cleaner. We only know his name because Tara's lovely father was visiting and told us the man's name was Kevin and that he was the owner and Tara's husband. CONS: the photos do NOT represent the property! The facts: Part of our stay was suddenly and arbitrarily cancelled by the owner almost 2 months after we booked leaving us stranded only 1 month before our trip. Our refund did not include taxes and services charges due to VRBO's computer system. Tara could have corrected the error but refused so she kept our money that didn't belong to her, which is called theft. VRBO would not correct the error because they said Tara could and that their system was not set up to correct it properly - for this reason I will never use VRBO again. We may have met Tara but neither the man nor woman we met introduced themselves. Tara was VERY unpleasant to deal with online regarding providing us the correct refund and even said that we should owe HER money since she increased her prices after we booked - but SHE was the one who cancelled part of our stay! What nerve! We feel cheated and disgusted by the whole unfortunate experience. The backyard is messy and cluttered so we were not comfortable using the hot tub, which was a large part of why we booked this place. The room was clean except the floor - I had to find a broom and sweep it myself. Also the bedspread appeared dirty so we could not use it and there were no extra blankets provided. The room is very small and there is nowhere to sit at a table except outside, which is RIGHT in front of patio doors for another suite so is not private at all. So much for enjoying the sunsets. The TV has only a few channels and most were of ancient reruns. Couldn't watch sports or anything. We avoided being at the room for our 1 week stay and definitely would not stay here again. The price is way too much compared to the 3 other beautiful places we stayed during our vacation. Turns out Tara did us a favor cancelling on us. Unless you have 4 wheel drive you will not be able to get up what they call the "driveway" to park beside the room. It is VERY steep and rutted. You will have a long steep walk uphill to bring all your belongings to the room if you don't have 4 wheel drive.
