My boyfriend and I recently made a trip up to Prescott for a vacation away from school and work. I have to say firstly that Prescott is one of the nicest cities I have been to in a long time. It is beautiful, fully of lakes, parks, camping, and a wonderful downtown night life.
We chose our place of lodging before reading reviews about Apple Creek Cottages, and a few days before we left I finally got around to reading reviews and just wanted to cry and curl up into a ball in the corner. With much reassurance from my boyfriend and the manager, we kept our reservation and I must say with confidence that that was the best idea I have ever had. The cottages were adorable, comfortable, and nothing like the reviews.
We stayed in one of the more contemporary cottages, but I found the scenery to be very cute, cliche, and quirky. I had no issues with feeling that the cottage was no more clean than my home would be or what you would expect in a semi-wilderness setting. I loved all the random ornaments everywhere and found it to be quite appealing. It was so nice to build a fire in the pit that is on site, although I do feel bad for the couple whose dog we kept waking at 9:30 pm.
One thing to note is that people are more likely to write a review if they have had a bad experience. Think for every bad experience, generally there is 8 people that in fact had a wonderful one.
Another thing to note is that it's not a Hilton, it's a cottage in the mountains. It's not gonna be perfect. You should expect things to have a little dust on them.
My recommendations would be to bring your own towels and bring your own food essentails.
My recommendations to the owner would be to get better towels, have a supply to check out of basics like oil or salt, and possibly get someone to help run the office.
The manager is super helpful, but it is hard to be needed at all hours of the day 24/7 when you're the only one. You will end up having to call if you need help and she isn't on the premises.
