“Great house in great location!”
Reviewed 31 December 2014 for a stay in December 2014

I wish I could give this property a 4.5. I loved the house - which is very spacious, clean, pretty and nicely furnished - and the location was perfect for the winter, right by Wisp. The yard was larger and more private than I expected and the hot tub was great. The management company, Railey, was professional and I was impressed by their service both at checkin time and when I called with questions.

But having rented many houses at this mid-range price point, there were one too many annoyances that prevent my giving the place a 5. The biggest issue is that the standard 4 burner electric stove doesn't work properly. The 2 front burners are barely even attached to the stove, they tilt up at an unusable angle. Also, there seems to be some kind of plumbing issue. There is plenty of hot water which is great, but the faucets don't run smoothly both kitchen and bath faucets sputter sometimes. There is also no filtered water on the fridge, and you get cloudy well water from the tap - I believe the water quality is good but it is typical to have a fridge spout or even a Brita pitcher. The firewood provided was also not usable so our Eagle Scout couldn't get a sustainable fire going, I would have rather bought my own but didn't suspect that green wood would be stocked. They should also upgrade the 1st floor bedroom bed from a double to a king or at least a queen, and provide extra pillows and blankets for the 2 pullouts.

We had a great time anyway and would use Railey again for sure, but I might look for an alternate house. I would still recommend this one as long as the renter is aware of these minor issues.
