2/5 Poor

Timothy C., Travelers Rest
Do Not Recommend
After many VRBO rentals, this is our first negative review. There were many issues, but here are the top 3: Old and uncomfortable beds Too noisy inside (very loud fan blower on furnace) and outside (highway traffic) Musty odors and sulfur water odors As we heavily rely on reviews, we did not heed our own advice as we were lured in by that river view and the assumption that it would be quiet. Our usual stays in GR are at hotels. If you take the time to read the negative reviews, the complaints are all the same and spot on:: old and uncomfortable beds; musty odors, sulfur water odor; overpriced; repairs needed; dirty; mice, bugs, and spiders.

Hold your nose
I would not recommend this property. The sulphur smelling water made us not want to cook or shower. The bathroom and bedroom doors didn't latch, the bedrooms were small, the yard needed mowed and the porch needed sweep. Not worth the money.

Great Location
This was a great stay for after a wedding. It has a great location that is just off the highway but also tucked back on the water.

Convenient and peaceful
This is a conveniently located property on a quiet river stretch. I would call the accommodations comfortable. It felt like a friend had allowed us to stay in a well-worn family cottage for the weekend. Served our purposes.

Grand River view
View of River was lovely and the home was comfortable and well appointed. Communication with owner was excellent. Only negative is that the lot next door has an abandoned house that is in disrepair, which is an eyesore.

Anniversary getaway
Very homey, appreciated the abundance of cooking ware as well as bedding. Seems that the owners are used to a vast array of guests so they are prepared for whoever may be utilizing the rental. Definitely would visit again!

Like staying at grandmas house
This house reminded me of staying at my 90 year old grandma’s house: Do you have to wash the dishes before you use them? YES Are the beds old and uncomfortable? YES Does the water smell like sulfur to the point that you avoid showering? YES Are there mice in the kitchen? YES Do you spend your time there apologizing to your family about the state of things and offer to get a hotel room instead? YES Location was good, close to a lot of amenities. Quiet road.
