Could be a good place if they would only clean it

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)

This place could be so much nicer only if they would give it a good DEEP CLEANING. The accomodations are rustic at best. The bed was hard as a rock. The bathroom had a bear claw tub in it that didnt even have a shower curtain that would reach around small it sticks to you while your trying to shower. Old sheet rock and flooring. Bedroom had rat feces in the floor. Found a snake skin in 0ne of the dresser drawers..shows how long its been since they cleaned it. No phone, internet. Thermostat, located in another unit , didn't even tell us that when we checked in, almost froze to death and it was 90 outside. Had to keep the door open to attempt to regulate the room temp. No maid service the whole 2 days we were there. Garbage was left on the front porch from the day the "cleaned" the rooms before we checked in. No one ever did come and get it off the porch. Animals scattered it everywere. Grounds very unkempt. Old run down lawn furniture. The only positive thing about the whole place was the view from the front porch out onto the water. Rockers and swing were nice. I stayed on the porch most of the time I was in the room watching people tubing and fishing and the ducks, geese and crane were nice touch.
The first room they tried to put us in was even worse than this one. I refused to take it. Is wreaked of cat urine. A/C didn't cool, very small and outdated for the money. Bring your own pots and pans. "kitchen" is a small, noisy fride,stove and sink stuck in the corner of the living room. I would stay here again. ONLY FOR THE VIEW but, I would never pay that price again. New "cabin, log type" furniture was a plus, had nice wildlife pictures on walls. People upstairs and beside us VERY noisy and inconsiderate. There is one grill for the whole place to share out in the front yard. Have to go upsteps and across the whole porch in front of everyones door to get to your room.

Unique Quality: Facilities that they say are just across the street are actually about a half mile down the street. Bring own utensils. Bring own hair dryer. No can opener either.
