Good for families, Porch a HUGE plus

3.0 on August 15, 2016

I stayed here with my extended family for a weekend, and it was a very pleasant stay. Nothing over-the-top outstanding to note, but the giant screened-in porch was where we spent most of our time, so I had to mention it in my review!

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Since you said nothing to us about the condition of the house,/property, we do not know what to change, or how to make it better. We cleaned it ourselves before you arrived, and cannot imagine what could have been made cleaner. Please tell us. Best wishes always. Bonnie


Family Retreat

2.8 on August 13, 2016

This vacation home was very spacious and adequate to sleep our 15 adult family members. The facility was modern and in good repair (only the central vacuum wasn't working properly); we really appreciated the A-C, and to be able to regulate that temperature. There were ample and varied activities to do right on site--swimming, fire-pit, gas grill, large screened porch, Although the kitchen was spacious and had many appliances, the cupboards of equipment/utensils were extremely disorganized. We also felt we could not trust if these items were clean/recently properly washed. It really appeared that the kitchen had not been inspected recently--instructions in the Rental Agreement included that, in general, things were to be left where they were found--I assume that includes the kitchen items, but there was no reasonable system for doing so in that room. Overall, the owner/manager was very informative and friendly.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed being here. We checked out/had the central vac hose repaired as soon as you told us about it. Keeping the large kitchen organized is a full time job, when people just put utensils, pots, dishes, etc. anywhere handy, without order. I have organized things repeatedly, labeled the doors & doors, but to no avail. The labels were removed, and chaos again resumed. I will tackle it again. Since you do not mention finding anything dirty, I assume all were clean.With a house so large, and only ourselves to maintain it, it is impossible to check every detail after every group. We always welcome any/all suggestions on improvement. Best wishes.


Nice Place

Aniversary night

4.2 on November 28, 2015

We really enjoyed our night at treetop b&b. The room was very nice and the whirlpool tub was awesome. I really appreciated that they only require you to rent one night at a time since I could only leave our baby one night. Most places required at least a 2 night stay. I would definitely recommend this as a nice quiet place to get awake. -- -Melody


Very Pleasant stay

From the time we arrived Bonnie made us feel at home and welcome to share her house. The room was beautiful and clean. The view from the top of the hill wonderful. I have nothing negative to say about this B&B and our stay here. Will definitely stay again if we are in the area.


Worth it

This house is beautiful and the view is georgeous.


Unexpected details that would have changed our decision to stay

3.4 on October 30, 2014

There are no locks on the outside of room doors-thus if you leave your room it is unlocked. This should be in the description so you. Know it going into it. There are also several unusual requests made of guests. Lovely rooms (except that her idea of a recliner is an office chair that tilts- not serviceable if truly need a recliner. That food was excellent.


OK

I was trying to avoid reviewing this experience but you guys dont stop emailing me. I had difficulty getting a key to the little house I rented, and then I found out that the door doesn't really lock easily which had be a bit unnerved. I was able to lock the screen door but that's the screen door. The overhead fan squeaked so i was forced to use AC which then froze me up. The breakfast was good and plenty but these little things (door not locking overnight more than little , i don't care how "safe" the neighborhood is) mean I would not stop there again. Just sayin'.

Innkeeper Response
I am sorry you were uncomfortable, and didn't mention these details to us when you were here. We cannot fix what we don't know about. I discovered you are right about not being able to lock both doors. Seems when the screen door is locked, it puts pressure on the main door latch, preventing it from locking. We put on the screen door so people can sleep comfortably without air conditioning by opening the window and solid door for cross breezes. Our mountain top location brings cool nights much of the summer. We are fortunate to live in a part of the world where multiple locks are not needed. The AC unit has an adjustable thermostat - to cool as much or little as you like. If you had asked, we could have quickly solved the problem. I didn't hear a squeak in the fan, but gave it a shot of WD-40 just in case. When you rent a little cabin in the woods, there's little to fear - especially when the neighbor is a police officer. Please come back, and give us a 2nd chance. A suite in the main house will probably be more to your liking.
