The accommodations at Stillwater were wonderful. Our family spent the weekend there while attending a wedding nearby at Cedar Lodge of Maple Valley. Stillwater was a beautiful sanctuary for us as we prepared for the happy event. Light, clean and nicely decorated, the house was very comfortable. Many thanks for the thoughtful considerations you made to make the space warm and inviting. The open floor plan worked well. We enjoyed spreading out into chairs in the main fireplace room with good books, periodically gazing out the floor-to-ceiling windows at the peaceful expansive yard and pond.
Thank you for sharing this lovely space; we definitely enjoyed our stay.
My husband and I rented this estate for a week as a gathering place for all my family members from out of state to attend my brother’s wedding. The location, the grounds and the property are great and beautiful. The owners and staff were very nice and accommodating.
The overall stay was great but here are some of the pros, cons and things to be aware of:
Plenty of space to spread out
Row boat and fishing at the lake
Pet allowance (extra fee)
Plenty of outdoor tables and chairs for large gatherings
Plenty of dishware, glassware and silverware
Plenty of guest parking
Beware that this property is a commercial/business venue with the owners/property managers living onsite in the basement. This information was not disclosed to us until at check-in time.
If you are planning on having any events and gatherings over 30 people (kids of all ages (babies, infants) are counted), no matter if it is just a causal family dinner/potluck gathering; be prepared to pay additional fees for a required event coordinator and a bartender, if you serve alcohol at your event. This fee is rather steep considering the high price we already paid for the rental.
The interior of the house could use a better cleaning. There were cobwebs, dirt, dust bunnies in various areas, inside the closets and dresser drawers.
The kitchen is small and it was smelly because there was days-old garbage that was not taken out prior to our arrival.
The home is supplied with well water and water has a strong sulfur/rotten eggs smell. The stink from the shower stall in the master bathroom will knock you over every time you open the shower door.
The bathroom count was not accurate because one of the bathrooms has a shared shower/tub. So it is not a true full bath. The faucet in the shower does not work properly, so some of the guests have to shower in the other bathrooms. We were informed not to use the tub in the second bathroom because it doesn’t work. The pedestal sink in this bathroom is stained with rust and a constant dripping from the faucet.
The literature states that we would have four parking spaces close to the house but we only have three because one of the spaces is the owner’s but there is no signage indicating “Reserved” so we constantly having to tell our people to move their car from that space. Again, we did not know that we were going to share the property and space with the owners.
