5/5 Excellent

Wonderful place
Really nice place, located right off Hwy 4 in Arnold. Good amount of parking. A little dated in places, but that's ok for a house in the woods. Everything was clean and well kept inside. The only gripe we might have is that the upstairs bathroom is really tiny in terms of toilet space (knees nearly up against the wall) and shower space. Not a big deal though since we didn't spend much time in there :). Will rent this place again if we are ever in the area. Oh, and the check in/check out process was very easy and straightforward.

3/5 Okay

If you want outdoor space this isn’t it
The property was clean but smelled very old. Very few windows actually opened. Air conditioning worked great. The location is right in the highway. It would have been ok if the deck was on the back side of the property…it is on the front. The deck was maybe 8 x 6. No furniture other than 2 delapitated chairs and a bbq. It’s the middle of summer and we couldn’t enjoy the outside space. That’s why we come to the mountains. We want to enjoy the outdoor space. We have stayed in over 60 VRBO rentals. We have always had good luck. This is a huge miss. The photos are all staged. Unfortunately will not recommend. Having to check in and check out with a rental company is also a big miss.

4/5 Good
