As huge fans of kitch 1950's. we were beyond excited to finally have the chance to stay at Lazy Meadow. Unfortunately, we were disappointed from the time we arrived. The vintage airstream trailer out front is stuffed full of junk! Not a good first impression! There was nobody in the office, and we were totally confused as to where to find the manager. We were never told to find our key in the office. When we got into our room, we felt totally ripped off! 170 dollars. You've got to be kidding! The TV was so small you could hardly see it! The "eclectic collection of DVD's" consisted of Blockbuster left overs like "Glitter", "Beach Party" and other titles nobody actually wants to watch. The bathroom is the size of a shoebox. The "designer" bed linens? IKEA. The grounds? The beautiful "Lazy Meadow"? Well, the neglected to tell us that the whole place had flooded the week before, leaving the "Lazy Meadow" awash. Bits of debris scattered the grounds (a picnic table was stuck in the trees). So much for sitting by the creek to relax near a bonfire. A note was posted on the office door saying that fires were not allowed because of the dry weather. The chairs were all rusted out anyway. On top of paying an arm and a leg for a room, I would have to buy new clothes as well if I sat on those chairs! We were especially insulted by the sign in the room telling us that there was no maid service and that we were expected to do our dishes if we had used them. I realize that this is not a 5 star hotel, but this is ridiculous! When we were ready to check out, there wasn't a soul around. After calling all possible numbers listed in the room and not getting anyone to pick up, we left our key in the drop box and headed on our way! Maybe they didn't want to hear our complaints upon check out!
