We stayed here for a few nights and loved the peacefulness of the forest around us. The house was clean, very comfortable and welcoming. We had no issues of any kind. We would return if in the area again. Great Host as well!

First of all, found out the day of check in that the central AC was not working and they were instead going to be using two window units to cool the house. For a house that size, that is unacceptable. The house was incredibly warm considering it’s the middle of June. This would h…

Response from Anitra:
I just spoke with my cleaning crew and they assured me that the house was thoroughly cleaned before your arrival. What they did say is that when they arrived it wasn't locked. They also said it wasn't locked when you left as well. That indicates I could have had a person squatting in the house prior to your arrival. In between the cleaning and the time you arrived. I'm not sure what happened here but you should have called or texted me immediately if the property was not clean. I would have tried to address the situation. The floors in the living room have a cork inlay between carpet that was really pretty and the transitions had area rugs over them to hide the 6 inch area that isn't flush to the hallway. Yes it is eclectic and artsy. But it says, Stay with Artists in Mountain Lair. This house is not for everyone. Its a 1954 ranch home in the middle of two acres of woods. It is also incredibly cheap compared to everything else in a one hour drive radius. Literally everything in that area is 140.00 a night during the week and over 200.00 a night for the weekend and only sleeps a maximum of 4 people. I am literally making no money on this. All I am doing is paying utilities, cleaning, landscaping and maintenance and repairs. I am putting in new wall to wall this year but just couldn't pull it off last year as someone flooded the bathroom and left water all over the floor which cost me 5,000.00 for a new bathroom tear out and install tile floor last October. I am sorry there were only two air conditioners and not central air but that just now happened and I couldn't afford a new unit until July so window units it was. The last bedroom had a working ceiling fan so now that is a new issue for me. So, I am sad that you were so unhappy here and never bothered to communicate this to me even once during your stay. I might have been able to correct at least some of the issues.

As of May 2018, this place was in need of serious reservations and I would not recommend. Host advised us day of that central A/C was down (85 degrees during our stay and not all bedrooms had working fans). Look elsewhere...

Great location, surrounded by trees and back from the road. Plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable. WiFi and large TV were welcome bonuses.
