Extremely dirty....Disgusting

  • 1 of 5

I found this place extremely dirty, it was the first time in my life that I stayed in a place like this one.

Bed covers were very dirty, with hair, crumbs and yellow stains, same thing goes for the pillows and pillow cases.

Coffee maker, with old coffee that the last guest left it in there so it was never cleaned after they left; additionally, it was so dirty and broken, I was lucky I found another one without coffee but very dirty so I had to do a deep clean and wash it.

Our experience was terrible so we left Sunday very early in the morning to have breakfast somewhere else since the place was gross.

Owner's Response: It's absolutely AMAZING. Anonymous wrote that the house was disgusting. Let's back-track. Anonymous asked for special booking ( cheaper) to accommodate his Special birthday...also asked for special late check out. When he arrived i went next door to see that all was well. He then ASKED ME WHAT THE MAtTRESS COVERS WERE. i told him, 'to cover the mattress. he'd never heard of such a thing...ergo HE THREW THEM IN THE CLOSET. The next day I saw some the people on the dock...counted 9 people...not bad for a 6 person rental...and asked if everything was o k at the house...NO ONE SPOKE ENGLISH...only Spanish. I then started counting bodies...lo-and behold the six had multiplied into at least 12...my daughter counted 14.. I inspected the house when the cleaning crew called on Sunday, after the late check out, and found the place in a mess. bed covers thrown on the floor, dirty dished in the kitchen, and the new coffee pot ( two weeks old, busted, like someone had pounded on its top. Contrary to his note, the grille was filthy and i had cleaned it two days earlier because it's something that is often over-looked when guests depart. It happens...I've had three or four in ten years...but the have a WEEKEND rental do more than a weekly, well some countries have different codes of concern, cleanliness and care. As we used to say in the Navy...it all counts on twenty. My guests, over 65% are returnees year to year and I seldom have or will rent a weekend. LIVE AND LEARN. No permanent damage. You'all come.

Great for family with kids and dogs!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house for the weekend as we wanted a place nearby as we were racing the Kinetic Half Ironman.! Location was great for the race, about 7 or so miles to Lake Anna State Park.

Tersh and Jean were great! Their response time on getting back to questions via email was fast as they were out of town.

We had 6 adults and 6 kids. The family room downstairs was great with the 2 queen pull out sleeper sofas. We threw the "older" kids in that room and they were very excited as it felt like they were having a slumber party. The house never felt overcrowded even at capacity. We didn't spend that much time inside as the deck was pretty fantastic and we were down near the water playing. The grill was pretty awesome to!

The best part for us was being on the lake and the walk in beach. It was perfect for the kids to play in and jump off the dock. The dogs had a blast to!

When I was looking for a house to rent, the walk in beach was a necessity, as we have younger children, so if you have young kids this is the house for you!

Looking forward to doing some more Tri's in the area and staying here! Hope to use the fire pit next time and make some smores. :)

What a Difference a YEAR makes!!!

  • 1 of 5

I am totally disgusted with the owners who last year were nothing but hospitable. This year they were not there when we arrived. We saw the owner the night before we left and advised him of mold on the bathroom ceiling, he went in and inspected it. Then he spoke to us of renting next year etc. Three days after we were home, I got a scathing letter from him, not accusing but STATING that we "did drugs" in his house and accused us of taking 3 items.....1 which was never there to start with, 1 that WAS there when we left and 1 that I don't know what happened to (a remote). I was never as appalled as I was when I read that letter. I, myself, was a owner of a vacation rental in FL for many years. I know how to take care of other peoples' property as I would like them to take care of mine. The audacity of this man with all of his accusations. Last year we found a steak knife under the front edge of one of the sleeper couches downstairs. We had a 2 year old with us who easily could have gotten a hold of it. We also found ABSOLUTE FILTH under the couch in the livingroom and down the sides of the couch on the day we were leaving last year, as we were searching for a phone charger. Had I seen it when we arrived, I would have called the owner to have it cleanedm right then. I didn't mention it in my review last year nor in the comment book at the house. I privately wrote them an email to let them know about these issues as to not bring it to everyone else's attention. His answer was he was TERRIBLY sorry that we had to find that and that he guessed he would have to "get on" his cleaners as he stated that he didn't check their work all the time. This year, we pulled out the sleeper sofa to use and it was full of dirt/sand, dead bugs and leaves. The mattress also had urine stains on it. I don't think anyone should be subjected to these kind of accusations and libelous statements when there is nothing to back them up with. I wouldn't stay here if I were you. IT'S NOT WORTH IT!!!! Not to mention that I think there might be a mold problem as 2 of us ended up with asthma flaring up and having to do breathing treatments the whole time we were there. I just can't imagine how he react if any damage was done to his property. He also counts how many people go in and out and where they park as he lives next door.

Believe me, this is not sour apples as we had a good time while we were there.

Owner's Response: The above review was written after we decided NOT to honor their request for a week next year,( most of our guests have been with us multiple years)due to the condition of the house, missing items and strong suspicions of drug use( cocaine paraphernalia recognized because I'm former law enforcement).We were quite surprised as the parents seemed very nice, both years. The kids, their kids and/or friends of same, who we're told, occupied the lower level, showed little or no respect or responsible characteristics. The lower level was trashed, our linens ( required to be washed,dried and replaced on shelf) were thrown on a closet floor(dirty) mattresses pulled off beds, left on floor( and walked on. Food wrappers stuffed behind furniture, grille cover tossed out into yard...much, much more. We counted more than 20 people at the house( booked 6 adults, 4 kids) and they even brought a huge camper ( never mentioned) and parked on the lawn. Our comment book is full of accolades(see other reviews, including theirs from last year) and many, many of our guests return for additional years. Murphy Says..." You're bound to get a bad one sometime." We Did. Now we're safe for years!!

Beautiful Site for a Wedding!

  • 5 of 5

We decided last August to rent a lake house because our family keeps growing and this way everyone could come and enjoy themselves instead of being crunched all together in one small house. Our plans changed, slightly, when my daughter and her fiance decided to get married and at the suggestion of my other daughter who lives in Idaho, we planned a hawaiian wedding to be held at the Guest House. Tersh and Jean were very gracious in allowing my daughter and I to take a few trips to the Guest House to plan out this event. Tersh even remembered the woman who made his daughter's wedding cake 10 years before. We enlisted her services as caterer and cakemaker. In turn, she gave us the name of a photographer. Anyway, everything was perfect. We arrived Sunday and had the wedding Friday night at sunset. We had 9 people in the house, all week and never felt like we were on top of each other. The kitchen is VERY well stocked and there is ample information about area things to do. There's a great fire pit that we did not get to use. But no worry, we already booked for next year! The owners, Tersh and Jean could not have been nicer nor more helpful. They were there whenever we had a question.

The property is beautiful. The beach was great for our 2 year old granddaughter and the older kids loved the fact that the lake was not too deep at the end of the dock. They fished (and caught fish) tubed and just plain enjoyed themselves. My husband found this property listed on the internet by accident, but it will be a yearly vacation spot from now on.
