“Enjoyed our vacation could of been better”

Something that they need to include is the location of the actual cabin because depending on what you drive you may not be able to make it up the driveway to the cabin. Upon arrival we had a beautiful view the outside of the cabin was beautiful but when we got inside that is where the problem started we have to do excessive cleaning before we can even put our luggage down no doubt the cabin was beautiful all the bathrooms that had tubs were full of spiders not just household spiders some weird looking spiders and bugs all the light fixtures were full of bugs the dishes in the kitchen were dirty the sheets on the beds were dirty the chairs and the couches were full of dead bugs one of the rooms even had dead bugs in the bed and on the floor all around it we had to sweep mop spray down everything in the kitchen with bleach before we could even use it. we kept hearing noises to find out that the place has mice we spent 4 hours trying to catch until we finally succeeded in killing one with the broom that we broke and we blocked off the room where we thought they were coming in at with towels there was mice droppings in every room we called for them to send someone to clean it up no one ever came to clean it up but they did come and replace the broken broom. Grant it we had a great time it was 14 of us and we were determined to enjoy our vacation regardless of what we had to do.. if you're going to stay bring your own bug spray mice traps and cleaning supplies... it's quiet and cozy beautiful but just dirty. I have included just a couple of pictures and a note that I left on the envelope that they left for tip for the cleaning crew... we have to go out and buy our own raid and sticky mouse traps

The cabin is beautiful and not hard to get too. Plenty of parking. We had a great time and loved it. The cabin did have a mice problem on the bottom and main level. They didn't mess with or bother us at all but it did unsettle some of my friends when they would see one.

“AMAZING PLACE FOR A FAMILY REUNION !”
Reviewed 9 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

person found this review helpful

We had our family reunion at Fox Hollow Lodge and it couldn't be better.
Pictures are very accurate. The lodge is wonderful in all points, kitchen is fully equipped, All appliances work very well, tv are everywhere with a large selection of channels from Direct TV.
The Jacuzzi was running when we arrived, the movie theather room is amazing, the pool table is responding pretty well, so the football table.
The lodge is huge and can accommodate easy 16 people. rooms are big and decoration is lovely made. sheets and towels are good quality, beds very comfortable.
The location is one of a king, the lodge is super private, on a end road (private road). We had snow for 2 days until ze left and we do recommend to have chain in you car on winter time. Also be careful to arrive during the day because even if the road is very well maintained is small and pretty difficult to locate in the dark. GPS is working so so, Waze was working on my phone ATT but no guarantee for others. We recommend this lodge at 100% for a family reunion. Thank you the management company to take great care of it and for the excellent communication we had with. Hope to come again in the future !

“Fabulous”
Reviewed 1 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016

First let me say on April 11th @7:30PM I had called to inquire about changing one date of my reservation and the women I talked to was so rude and practically yelling at me. Had she been the 1st person I talked to when making reservation I probably would'not have made it.
That said, the cabin was absolutely fabulous! It looks exactly like the pictures on line.We had a family reunion there,with all age groups and it was perfect. Plenty of room for all and the scenery is breathtaking.
When we arrived none of the tv's or theater room worked.It was late in the evening Sunday when we discovered this.I called and they sent repair people out Monday.They had a major storm the day before we arrived and lightning had hit and blew out the dish plus receivers and tv's. They got it all fixed as quickly as possible and by Tues everything was up and running.
The kitchen is well equipped. The only thing (which is minor) that was missing was a full set of measuring cups & spoons.
I know in there directions they say not to use your gps,but Google Map works great! We never took a wrong turn once.The road up is intimadating the first few times,but after that,it's a breeze.
I definitely would book Fox Hollow again!

“Great cabin with just a few problems.”
Reviewed 30 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This cabin had many great features. Parking was very handy. All bedrooms had private bathrooms bur the two lower level bedrooms had no shower. Would like to had had less tubs and more showers. We had a few days of some showers and brought movies but the theater room needed some updates on hookups as it kept losing connection. So, we did not get to use the theater room due to the problems. There is no fireplace in the main living area as it stated in description. The lower level that has a gas fireplace but need better lighting, is very dark. There was a nice front porch with a nice view.The location was nice and it was very quiet and private. It gave us plenty of room with the nice big table for 12.

Management Response
18 Jan 2016
Thanks for giving us feedback on your stay at Fox Hollow Lodge. We're glad to hear you thought the location was nice, very quite and private and that you found the parking very handy as well as liking the view and front porch.
I apologize that there was confusion about the location of the fireplaces. The two fireplaces are in the sitting areas on the lower level and on the top floor.
If you had contacted us during your stay we could have sent someone out to check the theater room. We've sent maintenance out to check the connections to make sure everything is working properly.
We do appreciate your understanding and hope you consider us for your next visit to the mountains.

“Awesome Cabin! We loved it!”
Reviewed 16 June 2015 for a stay in June 2015

We recently stayed at the Fox Hollow Lodge Cabin (June 6 through June 13, 2015). Total of 13 people (9 adults and 4 children). We loved the cabin! Plenty of room and nicely decorated. We all had a blast! All the bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious! The kitchen had everything you needed: several coffee makers, toaster, microwave, huge selection of pots/pans, serving ware, dishes, glassware etc. The cabin had it all! We enjoyed our time spent relaxing in the jacuzzi while enjoying the view. We would love to stay at Fox Hollow Lodge again!

“Fabulous cabin and secluded location”
Reviewed 13 June 2015 for a stay in December 2014

Fabulous cabin and location! We rented the cabin for 1 week beginning 12/27/14 with a family of 16. Secluded, safe, quiet with beautiful views from every side. Ample parking (we had 7 cars & room for more). DO NOT RELY ON GPS as it maps everything that even remotely resembles a road – and there are MANY gravel and/or 4-wheel drive roads.

Cabin has a large porch that almost totally surrounds the house with multi-person hot tub (which we used several times), multiple chairs. Charcoal grill in the front yard. Easy access to cabin via “lock box” with combination.

Inside – Rustic, nicely furnished– website pictures are very accurate. Plenty of room for 16 people. Three-level house – gathering area with gas fireplace and large TV/DVD on each floor. 6 bedrooms, each with private bathroom and TV. 2 twin and 2 queen sleeper sofas. Pool table on 3rd level loft; foosball table, theater room on lower level. Beds / furniture very comfortable, extra blankets. Sleeper sofas had sheets. Ample supply of “hotel quality” towels (even for 16 of us). Broom, dish soap, dishwasher soap, 1-2 small soaps in each bathroom. A few kitchen towels and a couple hot pads provided. Large supply of dishes, silverware, glasses, cups, pots/pans, spatulas, utensils, plus microwave, toaster, coffee maker, blender. Dishwasher, washer/dryer worked great. Refrigerator needed to be bigger – so bring a cooler for drinks, etc. Adequate hot water (with 1 exception – below). Cell service but NO INTERNET (though we had cell phones for internet access). “Direct TV” with large # of channels.

Layout:
- 3rd floor/loft – 2 queen br’s each with private bath (standard tub/shower); queen sleeper; pool table; gathering area with TV/DVD.
- Main level – Living area with TV/DVD (could be a bit roomier); kitchen (not huge, but adequate with nice bar / 3 barstools); dining area with long table; 1/2 bath; 2 king br’s each with private bath (jetted tub and separate large shower); 2 twin sleepers.
- Lower level – 2 king br’s with private bath (jetted tubs, no shower); queen sleeper; theater room; foosball table; gathering area with TV/DVD.

Issues – we had several plumbing issues (clogged toilet and 1 shower with no hot water on day 1; leak in one bathroom and laundry room mid-week). Though it was holiday / weekend – someone always returned our calls immediately and arrived very quickly to correct these problems. Cabin has telephone but was not working (we reported it). Cabin could use better lighting.

Rental company was great to work with and very responsive to emails and issues.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would definitely stay there again!
