3/5 Okay

Traveled with group, Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The staff were very friendly. The location is convenient. The pool was nice and had lots of floating toys for the kids. They had a complimentary live band and bbq for father's day - that was great and appreciated. Unfortunately, however, the cabins are really old and run down. The carpet and couches are ripped. The cleanliness was an issue. For example there was dirt in the corner of the kitchen and there were dead flies on the windowsill. And we had a couple of issues. Our bed was missing a top sheet and our stove didn't light automatically. All in all, the cabins are a great idea, but serious renovation and updates need to happen before I would recommend this place to others.

We very much enjoyed our two night stay at Grey Squirrel! The location was perfect, just 10 minutes away from the resort, and the staff were very friendly! The cabin was very adorable and kept very clean. We will be coming back!

Traveled with family
Liked: Room comfort
It was nice
This place was very cute I loved it. There were just a few things that I thought were odd because its never happened to us before. First the door had a glass window on it with a whicker curtain that was clearly seethrough. Not only worrying about privacy the whole time, it was hard to sleep giving that Im a light sleeper due to light. Another thing was the floor didnt seem to have been mopped. I walked in my socks back and forth a few times to settle in and my socks were black already. Lastly, the tub was not scrubbed. When I showered the water was a cloudly color from whatever was stuck on the tub still. The drainage should be fixed as it also clogged up. The host had great communication so thats good.

2/5 Poor

Traveled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
The room cleanliness was not up to any reasonable standard. Especially given concerns over COVID. It also snowed and they did a bare minimum of clearing snow to allow for parking and a safe exit from the property.
