Quite possibly the worst experience ever!
I do not usually take the time to review my experiences with anything unless the experience is really good or really bad, and this rates as one of the worst experiences when it comes to vacation rentals. For frame of reference, we stay in vacation rentals 7 - 8 times each year while traveling and we have never had a bad experience, until now. We rented this property to attend a wedding in the area. Upon arrival, the combination code we were provided to open the key device did not work. After trying to open the combo lock for five minutes I called the owner and was basically accused of being incompetent. Finally we were told to walk two doors down (this is a mountain community where the properties are not "next door" mind you) and ask the neighbor for a spare key; that experience was sketchy to say the least. After finally gaining entry to the property we found it to be unclean. There were crumbs on the table and kitchen counters, the carpet did not appear to be vacuumed, there was hair in the shower, and the towels left out were damp. With only an hour until the wedding ceremony my wife and I had no other choice but to get ready at the property. We quickly changed and immediately returned the key to the neighbor within 45 minutes of arriving (including the 15 minutes we spent trying to get in) and did not stay the night for fear of unclean linens in the beds. Thankfully we were able to get a room at the Sleepy Hollow Cabins last minute, and not have to leave the wedding early to drive home. Since the hotels were looking for two nights minimum we figured this was a cheaper way to go, but in hind sight we should have gone with the more expensive hotel because, not only are we out the money for the night on the property, we are out more money for the hotel we found last minute, and we still have not received our deposit back - on a property we never stayed the night in! We are completely dissatisfied and feel scammed. PROSPECTIVE RENTERS BEWARE!!!
