Worst VRBO experience ever

  • 1 of 5

Don't be misled by the pictures. This is not a romantic getaway or romantic retreat.

The cabin sits right on the main road running by the lake, so there's absolutely no peace and quiet. And forget about privacy--documents inside the cabin alert you that residents of the cabin across the street are allowed to use the dock from 10am to 7pm, so you'll see strangers walking by at all hours of the day. You may even find the chairs at the end of the dock occupied at the end of the day when you go out to watch the sunset.

The inflatable mattress is extremely uncomfortable and takes up the whole room. There's no way to sit on the sofa during the day without deflating the bed and folding it up, the room is that small. (And no way to watch the TV from the bed, either, since the TV is in a cabinet at floor level and the bed comes close enough to obstruct any viewing.)

The bathroom is rank with the smell of mold and mildew.

The tap water is undrinkable (according to posted notices), yet the manager got upset that we were using too much of the bottled water.

All in all, I wouldn't recommend this cabin.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry that your stay at The Lake House was not as you expected. Our goal at SLVR is for our guests to have the best vacation possible and that is why I mentioned several times to you to call or text me if you had a problem or a question. Our website is quite clear about: our location on the lake (with the address and map provided), that it is a shared dock with a shared kayak and the square footage of the cottage. The cottage was professionally designed to maximize the space thoughtfully and comfortably for two people. The website photos are exactly what the cottage looks like, as I believe in actual presentation. I did replace the mattress portion of the La-Z-boy slumber bed sofa as a week after you left a guest let me know there was a problem. I can assure you the mattress is now quite comfortable. I am also sorry that you took misinterpreted my comment i about the water. With using 18.5L of water in less than 24 hours I thought you were washing your dishes with it. I just wanted to inform you that the water was fine for doing your dishes and having a shower. The water is checked by a plumber annually and I was told by him, the water is hot enough to kill bacteria. Otherwise, 3-4, 18.5L bottles are provided for other uses. The bathroom does not have mold or mildew or anything harmful in it. The Lake House is thoroughly cleaned every time a guest leaves. I did not have any complaints with the guests before you or after your stay or in fact, ever. Had you let me know of your concerns at the time of your stay instead of 2 weeks after you left, ii would have gladly addressed all of them immediately and you would have had a wonderful stay.
