Rude and very unwelcoming

  • 1 of 5

I love VRBO! I have been using this site for quite a while and have many very enjoyable experiences through them. This is the first time I have ever had any negative feedback to give.

The good...

This is an amazing location with beautiful views and right on the lake with a super cool “patio deck” right on the water and a gated deck on the cabin to contain the dog or small children. The cabin is very cute.

The bad....

The pantry was full of miscellaneous stuff that I assume belongs to the owners, which is fine but maybe they could organize it or condense it to one shelf so that there is room for us to put our dry goods away. We had to leave our food on the counters in the kitchen because there was no storage for guests.

Only one of the three bedrooms has any privacy so if you require or like to have privacy this cabin is not for you.

The dresser in the “master bedroom” (with the king size bed) had miscellaneous stuff in all the drawers. We had to live out of our suitcases.

They charged us an extra person charge because we had 4 adults and one child. Marsha informed me that you have to pay extra for anymore than 4 people when the ad clearly states you are allowed 6 adults or 4 adults and 4 children.

They also charged us for a boat decal. I learned you only need the decal if you are parking your boat on the community dock.

The Neighbors were very unfriendly. One even yelled at our young child because he was playing with the logs outside of our cabin in the lake.

We were asked before our arrival if we could leave before 11 am. I thought that was rude.

We left the cabin as clean as it was before we got there. The only thing we left for the maid was vacuuming, unloading the dishwasher, running laundry and making the beds. The outside trash bins were full before we got there so it was difficult to fit our trash in the bins. I assume this is why we were accused us of “over use” of the house. I feel like they were just looking for more reasons to overcharge us. The owners also wanted to charge us an extra cleaning bill. I was appalled!! We did a lot of the cleaning for the maid!!

It’s a shame we had such a horrible and offensive experience with mostly the owners, but the neighbors too because we really enjoyed the cabin and the lake. There are other fantastic cabins and owners on the lake so we definitely will not be back here ever again.

Owner's Response: These guests were abusive of our hospitality: they left piles of laundry which included their own clothing, a dirty frig and kitchen. I would not recommend them to other owners.

Nice accommodations, beautiful quiet lake

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and functional. Everything needed was available. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils/pots/pans, etc. for meal preparation. Plenty of seating both inside and outside. Able to launch small craft, e.g., kayaks or canoes from the home's dock.

The lake is very clean and not very crowded. Only a handful of power boats (20' long) plus jet skis were on the water at once. Other than that, the lake was fairly empty during our time in mid-June. Water temperatures were warm enough to swim and there were numerous people taking advantage of that.

All in all, a nice quiet escape when compared to other lakes (like Chelan) throughout Washington.
