Property conditions & facilities

3/5 Okay

Great property but not clean
This property provided ample space and was a great location. However, our entire group agreed the property lacked in cleanliness. The floors were covered in dust, dirt and hair. At the end of the day, our socks would be black from the floors. The rugs were disgusting, they looked like they had been in a restaurant or bar, they were that dirty. There was mold on the shower curtain s and stains on the walls. The appliances and kitchen had stains throughout. There was a hole in the baseboard in the kitchen that had dirt and debris. The brooms and mops were disgusting. We also needed dishwashing detergent as the starter set was not provided. I contacted the owner about this and he said he would bring it by when we checked out, not helpful to do the dishes during our stay. I addressed these concerns with the owner, thinking he may not have been present after the cabin was cleaned. He confirmed he was present after it was cleaned and they would be doing a deep cleaning . He did not seemed concerned about the cleanliness of the cabin for our stay. We looked forward to leaving at the end due to the feeling of lack of cleanliness. I will say, the owner was very responsive throughout the process and responded with great details for the stay.

4/5 Good

Great place for a group!
We had 4 couples in our group and 5 kids all together so the layout was perfect! There was plenty of room for everyone to get together and to have their own space. We did have to do some cleaning when we first arrived which was a bummer after a very long car ride. But the views from both sides of the cabin were absolutely amazing! Loved the hot tub and fire pit!

5/5 Excellent

Christmas getaway
This was the exact getaway we were looking for - with a white Christmas and all! The house is secluded up in the mountains, beautiful views, lots of places to walk around and explore the woods. It is cozy and comfortable and easily fit the 8 people in our group. We made great use of the fire place, fire pit and hot tub. There are lots of stairs and hills to maneuver. The house is located close enough to many parks and hiking trails so we were able to go do things that were outside of the busy, touristy areas - downtown Helen was VERY crowded. Unfortunately, businesses and restaurants in the area don't seem to be doing a very good job of taking precautions but we pretty much avoided going to those places. We did grocery pickup in Cleveland and take-out from some restaurants. I would love to stay again in the summer or fall as I imagine it would be equally beautiful at those times of year.

5/5 Excellent

Turkey 2020
Lots of space for a big family. The kitchen is a storage space little small if you plan on bringing all your meals for an extended stay.
