Knotty Bear Cabin New Property Acquired

This was a new property acquired by Elk ’s a great layout with three levels that leaves everyone with some personal space. The living room is spacious, the location is perfect . We weren’t far from anything and the resort was beautiful. The staff was amazing. Elk Springs is the place to rent. They are so helpful with everything including how to get places easily. The only reason for lack of a 5 star is because some issues need to be addressed which no doubt they will. As I stated is was a new property. These are a few of the issues needed to be addressed.
There is NO cabinet or storage at all for food( nowhere)
Only one blanket aside from bedding for four bedrooms to share and if you use the pull out sofa there is no extra blanket at all.
Two bathrooms have faucets that won’t turn off ( top two floors)
Roofing nails are all outside at parking ( causing flat tire)
Hot tub needs a new cover.
I would recommend hiding or moving all the wasp spray, roach spray, bugs,etc. I am assuming there was once an issue.
The furnishings were not bad. Not the best but comfortable for sure.
If you are looking at pictures online, don’t let the window unit in the master suite scare works great and the entire cabin cools easily.
I would definitely recommend this to my friends . You will enjoy your stay at Knotty Bear.
I just left a detailed review since we were the first renters. Again, we live renting from Elk Springs and recommend this property.

Unsatisfactory Experience In Every Way

The cabin had flooded in one room and the carpet was soaking wet. This was due to a cleaner not emptying the hot tub correctly. The downstairs bathroom had mold all over the shower curtain. The floor in the kitchen was sticky from a spill. The upstairs bathroom had a shower rod that was not attached to the wall and fell on my mom. A bat was in the upstairs room. We requested a new cabin on the day we arrived, but had to stay in the cabin with a bat, a huge fan to try and dry the carpet. Finally after three days they decided to move us to a new cabin...we spent a whole evening packing and unpacking instead of vacationing. The maintenance personnel were very friendly and helpful (the only bright spot of the stay). I could list other problems, but I think this paints a clear picture. We ended up with a cabin without a pool.

Host Response (July 05, 2022):

Thank you for taking the time to write in regarding your recent visit. We do have a detailed description with images of these events. There was no mistake from our cleaning staff, there was a leak behind the spigot that allowed it to leak as they filled the hot tub. Also, it concerns us that you would use the word 'flooded'' when actually there was only about 2 inches of carpet from the wall that was damp and dried up by our team. We recall zero issues here whatsoever and you even stated to one of our Customer Service Representatives that you loved the cabin. Later in your trip, we were unable to confirm a bat in the cabin, we did move you to another cabin per your request. We did this as a precaution due to this area being bat protected. We have yet to find or hear a bat in this cabin; however, our team is keeping a close eye and doing weekly inspections. Our team takes pride in being friendly and professional, and it was our pleasure to serve you during your visit.

A Batful Experience !

Cabin was great and work just fine for my family and I. However we came home Saturday nite to find a bat in the cabin and little did I know but it had been in there since we came in. I called maintenance to tell them and was told that someone would be there the next morning. That was not acceptable to me. I told them I couldn’t. Lean up the kitchen because the bat was in there hanging over the sink. I could not sleep in there knowing this bat was in there and I had little kids in there. Needless to say no one ever showed up to take care of the bat. No one called to make sure the bat was taken care of either. I’m very disappointed with the staff of this cabin. Probably won’t rent here again. Oh and the tubes needed to be cleaned as well.

Host Response (June 28, 2022):

Thank you for sharing your experience with us, Willie. We are sorry to hear this happened during your stay. While this is not a common occurrence, they can slip in if windows or doors are left open, even for just a few moments. We do see that you reported the bat to our overnight answering service. A technician was alerted and did come out that next morning. He was able to remove the bat from the cabin. We are not sure where the information came from that it had been in the cabin since your arrival, as there's no way of us knowing that. As stated, it only takes a moment for it to fly in, as they are attracted to lights. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience experienced and hope you were able to enjoy your time spent in our area.

Very Dirty!

We got there after driving all day to a filthy cabin. They was bread from past guest hiding under the the trash, vacuum was not done, hand print in glass door, tv full of dust, hair in shower and sink, dirty mirrors,table was so dirty that after cleaning ourselves the paper towel was black and that’s just to mention a few. We called to let them know and the cleaning lady came the day after just to clean the glass door with a towel.
Not please with the cleanliness of the cabin.
Will not be returning

Another Relaxing Vacation

Our 2nd time staying with elk springs resort and this time we brought my Mom and sis. They loved it as much as we did the first time. The views from the deck made my mother so happy and enjoying the jacuzzi was such a relaxing time for all of us. Cabin was very clean and dealing with all the people at elks spring made our vacation so great again. Thank you and can't wait to see you next spring
