Home was beautiful
Very nice time home was lovely and spacious
Thanks Charlotte. Glad you enjoyed it.
A few quick fixes and this house will be perfect
We had a nice stay at Marc’s property over Thanksgiving. The home itself is set in a lovely location with Mountain views all around and we had a peaceful snowfall while we were there. The house has many lux qualities, was very clean, and could be perfect with some quick fixes - like a new sofa (it’s comfy but has large tears in the fabric), new towels, and some fix ups to the porch and some door handles.
The kitchen was well equipped to make a full thanksgiving dinner and the large table was perfect for our group.
We also enjoyed using the fireplace and hot tub during our visit.
One note to future renters - the listing has outdated check in info and other details. Make sure you screenshot the private message from Marc before you leave - he’s great at responding quickly - there is no cell service near the home and you will need to access his message to get in the home.
Great home !
My experience was without a hitch!
Loved staying in this luxurious country home. Spectacular setting.
We went with another couple and could not have enjoyed ourselves more. The house was truly a "10". The property was totally private with breathtaking views. Cooking in the gourmet kitchen was a treat. The whole house was incredibly comfortable and finished with the best materials. Lacks nothing. The hot tub on the deck was amazing. Very responsive host. Planning to come back for skiing this winter. Highly recommended.
The house was great, had everything we needed. Despite it being summer, air conditioning was not needed at all, just the cool mountain breeze. Also some great views from back deck.
very unpleasant experience!!!
Overall, a terrible experience. Suggest if you are considering renting this property, read the whole review before you decide. Check in process was frustrating because the owner had not alerted us that there is no 4 G signal near the house. So we could not access the message he had sent earlier that day with the lock box code until we drove back about 5 miles into margaretville for a 4G signal and access the code. Upon entering the house, experienced an extremely stuffy house which was unbearably hot. turned the AC on but it did not cool at all. Several attempts to call the owner went with no response. Found the property manager information who also did not respond to phone calls. It was listed that she lived up the road so drove to her place, but no one was home. Continued to try and call both the owner and the property manager. Finally got in touch with the property manager about 2 hours after arrival who said she has not been property manager for several years and the owner refuses to take her info down from the listing! Finally called Homeaway for help. They too tried to contact the owner who then finally called us . Learned that AC was just in the master bedroom even though there are 5 thermostats all over the house. Homeaway rep pointed out that this info was clearly stated on their website, but was mentioned nowhere on their mobile app which is what we had used the entire time. Extremely misleading. Would never have rented a property for this much money with no central air in the middle of the summer!
Several other issues with the property which are listed below:
1. dead snake in front yard, extremely dirty front entrance and back porch, both full of bird poop and cobwebs, probably not cleaned in days if not weeks!!! Had to clean the cobwebs off the chairs on the back porch before being able to use them.
2. Microwave broken, could not use
3. Master bath faucet in shower broken
4. Most towels were old and frayed
5, Clothes in dryer so had to empty those before being able to use
All in all, a terrible experience. Only reason we stayed was because I had my 94year old dad with me, and he needed to rest after the long drive before we could drive back!
After 8 years of renting my house, I finally rented to the proverbial, "Guest from hell". This is the first time I needed to keep a guests security deposit for damage to my home. His review is largely fabricated and written in revenge. It is true that my home only has AC in the bedroom, as it clearly says on Homeaway. The guest called Homeaway on arrival and requested a full refund because he misread the AC entry.
Then he wrote me and I responded in 20 minutes. After that, he stayed the whole weekend and said he was comfortable after opening the windows and did not need AC. He broke the microwave, shower and a window blind. He did not report any issues or dissatisfaction until after he left....when I was forced to keep his security deposit. Please ask me if you have any specific concerns related to his fictional review.
