Jiji’s Awesome Vacay Getaway

We loved the cabin!! It was secluded, clean, and exquisitely appointed with everything one could want or need. We would rent it again, hands down!

The cabin was everything we expected and more based on the photos. Check-in was very easy and the staff were professional and courteous. We will definitely return.

Awesome family weekend getaway

We had our puppy our 7 month old daughter and two 12 year old boys, the cabin was perfect! Plenty for the boys to do, lots of play room for the baby, and many relaxing features for mom and dad! We had a wonderful weekend!

March Visit

The rental office was accommodating with giving us a map and a goodie bag when we checked in. The cabin smelled like pets, especially the main floor futons. When we pulled one of them out, the floor was sticky underneath and smelled like animal urine. The one set of keys that we were given did not lock the front door from the outside. Every time we left the cabin, we had to keep a door unlocked. Other than those two things, our stay was great. We left a day early because a family member got sick.

Beautiful Cabin

Great Cabin. Lots of comforts. The hot tub was a fun extra. The only thing that might need to be addressed is the musty smell in the play room downstairs. All else was terrific!

Brown's Bear Den

This place is amazingly awesome...just as described on the site...check in and out was easy peasy and they even gave us a dog dish for our dog...1st timers for Christmas and it made it truly magical...even got a dusting of snow on Christmas Morning...disappointed that it was not decorated for Christmas but were advised before we arrived there was a problem but we brought our own tree and a few extras to help made it a Merry Christmas...even left it for the next renters to enjoy...

All around not satisfied

Went to check in, the guy helping was not friendly. Had to check to see if the cabin was clean!! It was after check in time so why would you need to check?? It should be clean! The cabin had a road that only 1 vehicle could go down at a time. Very horrible driveway too. They didn't tell me the key only worked for the upstairs door and not the downstairs door. No instructions for how to use the hot tub and there were no labels for any of the buttons on it either. Cobwebs covered everything outside. The comforter for one of the beds was ripped, as well as the sham. Not impressed. Won't stay again.

Excellent check in process very satisfied with the staff, very friendly and helpful! This was our second stay with Aunt bugs. Unfortunately not my favorite cabin. The pool table was very unlevel which made playing hard. There were cobwebs all over the porch and outdoor furniture. Master bedroom had dust all over the walls and curtains and bath tub was not the cleanest, also there was no stopper to plug the tub for a bath in the jacuzzi tub. Location was doable, but a little hard to turn into the driveway.there was absolutely no view only wooded area. I would definitely stay with Aunt bugs again, but not this particular cabin

2000characters were not enough I can email the rest tothe company

My experience was horrible. We arrived Wednesday night and went to sleep so we did not get to enjoy any features the cabin offered. When we woke up Thursday morning the power was out so we left to enjoy the town until the power came back on. Thursday afternoon the power still had not came on and I called the office to inform them they hot tube top blew off and it was cluttered with trash and the power was out. They informed me the power was out for the area and would hopefully come back on shortly but they could do nothing about the debris in the hot tube. I let them know we had a wedding planned the next morning (Friday) and would need power to shower since it was well water. They just said they hoped it would be on in a few hours. Friday morning at 7am I called to tell them we needed to get ready for the wedding in 5 hours and still had no power. The lady said "unfortunately I'm just the emergency number and you'd need to talk to the main office when they opened at 9am." I told her the wedding would only be 3 hours from that point and we would not have enough time to plan and get ready. She still said there was nothing she could do but only 2000 homes were out and hopefully it would be on soon. We came up with the idea of going to get our hair styled at a salon and that way none of the family and friends would know the wedding party had not showered in a couple days (from the power outage). While we were at the salon I called the office around 930 to ask if the power had been restored. They replied they were not sure but 6000 homes were still out of power and hopefully it'd be on soon. How did the number go up? It felt like they were just throwing numbers around. I asked them what we should do because the wedding was in a couple hours, family was already showing up to the cabin, and human feces was in the commodes because we could not flush them. At this point they informed me they could move me to a different cabin. The office was about 20 minutes from the cabin,
