My husband and I have rented many cabins during our trips and thought this would be the perfect weekend getaway. Boy, were we wrong. We rented the Oleander cabin which sounded wonderful until we walked in the front door. Our first clue should've been when we inspected the very small bathroom (this cabin slept 10) was occupied by a spider with a large web in the shower. Our next clue was when the overhead lights in the main living area didn't work and the table lamps weren't bright enough for reading. When we were able to call (no phone in the cabin and no cell service) the manager when we went the grocery store, we were told their maintenance person would be out after 7:30. We ate dinner, shopped, and returned before 7:00 to find a box of lightbulbs and a note stating they would be by the following day. The next day, someone came by to let us know that all of the lights in the ceiling fans were burned out and couldn't be repaired until someone with scaffolding could be found. This was a problem long before we arrived and they seemed unconcerned about fixing it. Our biggest problem was the lack of cleanliness in the facility. The cabinets contained crumbs from previous guests, the frig had not been wiped out, there was lots of dirt,dust, and cobwebs along the walls and on the ceiling. The cleaning staff didn't bother to clean the windows on the doors and left whatever liquids previous spit on the glass; it was disgusting. Cobwebs were everywhere, doorways, lamps and walls. The towels were old, thin, and stained. There were old, moldy coffee grounds in the coffee maker and the kitchen was not fully stocked, they didn't even provide an oven mitt or a stock pot for spaghetti. The sheets on the beds (no mattress pads) were extremely old and thin and we had to use two pillows to make one. The owners are so cheap they didn't even bother to paint the interiors of the steel exterior doors and the floor in the bathroom was rotting out. The owners solution for dealing the flies in the cabin was to provide a ratty, disgusting old fly swatter. The clincher was the fact that the exposed breaker box in the living area was covered with two dinner napkins tacked over it. According to Ohio Revised Code, breaker boxes are required to have a metal panel covering the box in case of sparks. I would never recommend this facility or any other facility owned by this organization.
