Perhaps our expectations were a little too high, however, the house was not really clean. There was dirt/dust/hair on the floor that appeared as if the floor had not been swept/vacuumed for some time. The air vents had a thick film of dust on them, too. There was also several items missing/broken and no blinds on the bathroom windows. The windows upstairs on the 3rd floor don’t crank open but the views are great (especially for fireworks).
The towels/sheets are not provided by a service, which I had a different expectation (but that was not anything against the home, as it wasn’t listed that way - just something good for future renters to know). They locked the A/C unit when we put it below 70, but it gets very hot on the second floor. They did change it to 68 once I asked, which we truly appreciated.
Also, take note that there is no hair dryer, even though it is listed as an amenity. Not a big deal, but it’s helpful for future renters to know.
Street parking was easy and accessible in the front of the house.
There are a few restaurants in Gardner’s Basin so it has some nice options within a short driving distance (you could walk if you wanted, too!)
The house had cots and air mattresses, and while we didn’t need them, I could see that being really helpful for larger groups.
Lastly, Renee was super responsive and we even had the opportunity to check-in early, which was great! Like my title says, we had a wonderful time on our vacation, we just probably wouldn’t stay in this home again.
