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.
