Nice house with a few addressable frustrations
Had a nice stay in this home. It would have been great were it now for a few frustrations listed below. First, with the positives: - The house felt much bigger and nicer than it looked at first in the pictures. Hardwood floors now in the living room (which is larger than it appears), a nice high table that seats about 8. - Kitchen is larger than it appears, with huge fridge and good appliances (See note below about dishwasher) - 4 nice bedrooms and a good den. Bathrooms were functional, although beware when sleeping the max # of people (16) -- 2.5 baths may feel a bit limiting :) - Nice outdoor area for sledding, nice location not too far from town nor from the highway when coming from San Francisco as we did. Easy access to grocery stores etc. - Clear checkin and checkout instructions, and clean house when we came in - Huge downstairs room with all sorts of games is great! - Good heating for the top two floors of the house. Negatives: - We were there in the winter, and booked this house specifically for the hot tub. Unfortunately, the hot tub was warm, but never heated to temperatures appropriate for winter hot-tubbing. - The Dishwasher didn't work during our stay, requiring us to wash dishes manually. - While we received helpful checkin and checkout instructions, we were unable to reach any of the emergency contacts left behind or the owner to look into the hot tub and dishwasher issues. - Folks who slept on the sofa bed complained it was not very comfortable. - Some folks who slept in the upstairs den complained a bit about dust/sneezing, perhaps due to the carpet there. - As mentioned in other reviews, downstairs does get quite cold in the winter. There are a couple space heaters, but when it's really cold outside, it's tough to enjoy that room for long. On the whole, this is a nice home. Withe a working hot tub, dishwasher, and more responsive emergency contacts, I would have given it 5 stars. I think the owner can address all of these pretty easily and will.
