My overall impression of this property is the pictures on line are deceiving, the cleanliness has a lot to be desired, the communication with the owner/manager, Darin Trites, was very difficult. I have never experienced such defensive responses to very legitimate concerns.
The home is advertised as 5 bedrooms, 4 baths. In reality there was 3 bedrooms, with some sleep areas in a loft upstairs and a sleep area in the downstairs living room. No privacy in those areas. I saw 2 full bathrooms and 2 powder rooms (with only a sink and a toilet, no tub or shower). Obviously, we were not able to shower in the powder rooms!
The walk out patio off lower level was so filthy, filled with spiders and moss, that we would not even use it.
One of our guests almost fell through a loose platform section of the dock. Extremely dangerous!
The owner was notified of a bathroom door that was malfunctioning, locking guests inside, but he did not address the issue in the 2 weeks we were there.
Darin, the owner, did address an issue we had with a faulty barbecue, that started a large fire, by replacing it for us. We appreciated that service.
Over-all, the home has potential but needs better upkeep and better cleaning. I have never seen such a filthy garage or vacumn cleaner. Pretty disgusting. The owner did agree to credit us 2 nights stay out of the 14 we booked, also credited our cleaning fee, which we also appreciated.
I wouldn't book this property again.
