NOT BAD... CLEAN CABIN... WOULD STAY AGAIN...

The cabin is fairly secluded on the hillside with only 2 neighboring cabins. The firepit looks awesome although we didn't have time to use it. All in all, this is a nice cabin, looked clean, and served our purposes well. I brought my son and two of his friends down for a weekend adventure. We actually had a larger cub come up to the porch which I captured on video. The only issue worth mentioning was with the hot tub. We were unable to use it as it appeared to have lost its prime and would not function. I'm sure the service dept. for the rental would have fixed it but we only stayed for a few nights. I would certainly advise taking 20 minutes to test everything wherever you stay to maximize your enjoyment during your stay. The master bedroom suite was nice and had blackout curtains, and a large closet. There are two A/C systems which maintained a comfortable temperature in early July. The cabin is an easy 15-20 min. drive from the park with food options on the way.

Did not meet expectations.

There were maintenance issues: ice maker not working, tub did not drain, thin scratchy towels, faded bed covers, and only one rocking chair on the porch for four guests and other minor inconveniences (one slot of toaster broken, temperature labels on stove completely scrubbed off and no mountain view from lower level. However, the cabin was clean enough, comfortable and in a convenient location. While I recognize that the turnover at rental properties poses a risk to the owners, the several signs taped to walls warning of potential extra charges to credit card (e.g. for not using hot pads, not putting "trash" in toilets and turning A/C too low, was off-putting to guests who respect others' property. To protect my own interests, I alerted management to the deficiencies to document that we were not responsible. They offered to send maintenance, but with just a three-day-stay, it did not seem worth the intrusion. I would recommend Elk Springs in general, just not this particular property.

Would recommend to others? No
Host Response (June 17, 2018):

We appreciate your feedback, as it helps to ensure we are constantly improving. It appears as though you did report all your concerns to maintenance, and I can assure you they are all being addressed. We certainly apologize if you ran into any issues during your visit, but please know this is not indicative of a usual stay with us. Although we do understand our guests need for privacy, please know that we offer 24/7 guest assistance to ensure that any need that arises can be handled quickly. We have many luxury cabins to choose from and we certainly would be honored if you would give us another opportunity to show you a true 5-star experience. Thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.
