Allergies?Asthma?Agility problems? Do not stay here!
We stayed for one night and had planned to stay for three additional nights later with our children.It is not near the area shown on the map. It is about 20 miles from there.The cabin had no central AC so for a hot NC day it was pretty unbearable.The house smelled like no one had stayed in it for quite a while.The mold/mildew smell was awful even though the windows were open when we arrived.I may be super sensitive due to asthma.If you have allergies, asthma, etc I would not stay here.We were sniffling and sneezing whenever we were in the house.The stairs to the bedrooms are VERY steep.You can't stand up straight because the ceiling is so low.Each step is about 5" wide so you have to walk sideways and hunched over.This would be very dangerous for children.There is satellite but when it rained there was no reception.The "stairs" to get into the cabin were broken cinder blocks; not safe at all.The couch was broken in the middle.We didn't use any of the bedding bc they felt damp from humidity and no central air.There is about a 4-5 foot drop to get down to the river.Not kid friendly.There were signs on either side of the house that said private property so we were unable to try and find a better place to get in our tubes.The current is swift and is not safe for children to wade in.Any agility issues will not allow you to access the upstairs at all.If it hadn't been so close to dark after we finished fishing we would have left.There is a large yard but there is nothing in it like horseshoes, etc like other houses there.Another review below is correct.There are campers and other houses on each side and behind the house.I have been trying to contact the owner since 7/12 (the day of our stay) to request a refund for our reservation that was prepaid for 7/17-20.I have had no response and it is the 15th.Our reservation wasn't made until the 7th so it's not as if we are waiting until the last minute to cancel.We signed no agreement about policies, etc.I would love for the owner to refund my money.UPdate 8/2: The owner never responded to me.My husband called on the 15th and owner said he would send refund for 2 of 3 nights.A week later we still didn't have it.He blocked my # and sent an email that I was harassing him.Really?We got our refund 7/22.He took one nights stay from our refund and I assume tax and a cleaning fee or something because it wasn't a full refund for even two nights.
