False Advertising and filthy house. Very disappointing Christmas vacation.
When we first arrived at this property there was a dead mouse in the middle of the floor of the "game room" on the "lower level." I place "lower level" in quotes because this area is simply a basement. The basement in this house was dark, damp, and smelled moldy. The bedroom on this level is dominated by the queen bed, and the "bunk room" is in quotes in the original listing because the owners placed bunk beds in a closet in an effort to cram more people into the small house. If you have allergies or sensitivities to mold, mildew, rodent droppings or urine, or small pets, DO NOT stay at this cabin. My son, who rarely has asthma, was wheezing by the end of the first day. I woke up the first morning with one eye swollen shut due to allergies. Both of us were on maximum doses of allergy meds and inhalers during our visit. The listing mentions playing darts in the "game room," but there was no dart board. The basement's full bath was so small that it is difficult to turn around in the shower. There was mold, mildew, and rust throughout the bathroom. The main level does offer a living room, dining area, and one bedroom with a king bed and full bath. It would be a stretch, however, to call the kitchen "fully stocked." The coffee maker was broken and the carafe didn't fit the machine. The pots and pans were filthy, and there were ants on the floor. The upper level does contain a master bedroom with a full bath. What the listing DOESN'T mention is that this master bedroom is A LOFT. As in NO DOOR. The listing says the cabin is very accessible via a paved driveway. Yes, the driveway is paved. However, it is so steep and twisted that cars have to make a 3-point turn half way up the driveway to make a turn. If you plan to visit in winter, there is no way (even with chains or snow tires) that a vehicle will make it up the drive. The hot tub was poorly maintained and its cover was saturated with water, mold, and mildew. There was a bad storm during our stay, and the flapping of a detached section of tin roof kept us up at night. The rental company should have paid US for our visit. We spent way too much of our vacation washing dusty, dirty sheets and comforters, vacuuming carpets, sweeping floors and mopping off the caked-on dust. Finally, there was no working internet or wifi. I plugged my computer directly into the modem and was not able to get online. The router was reset, but no luck there either. The only plus was the beautiful view.
