Our first impression on seeing Lodge was it looks great. There were issues which I will simply list here.
1. About half the lights and lamps had burned out or missing bulbs. In the living room none of the lights on the two ceiling fans worked probably because the batteries were burned out(?) in the remotes. Broken lamp on bedside in one bedroom with socket falling out. Made it very dark.
2. The pool table had one ball missing. The ping pong table was collapsed and unusable. The pinball machine was non functional as was the air hockey game(no air).
3. Some algae growing on walls of pool. No biggie but needs attention.
4. House needs a thorough and in depth cleaning to bring it up to standards that the price warrants. It could use new, updated bed clothes,etc. We actually had to get a broom and sweep cobwebs off the ceiling and walls over the bed in the master.
The location was great and we had a nice time but overall the cabin needs a serious overhaul to command the rates it commands.
Large beautiful home right on the river! Perfect retreat for a large group, but an excellent luxury couples getaway, too. I booked for just the two of us, and our stay could not have been more relaxing. We did fish, though this was not the time of year to catch anything...too hot.
The home is fantastically furnished with everything you could possibly need as far as kitchen supplies, many bedrooms and bathrooms, laundry, so many options for dining inside or out, and the tables are all for large parties. As I said, perfect for large group get-togethers!
On the downside, the pool was disappointing as it needed cleaning so we did not swim, and the railroad-tie steps to access the river clearly show their age, but the grounds were satisfactory for our purpose...a weekend away. Also, the lawn crew came in the morning and there was a little confusion as to check-out time. The information on booking differed from the information the owner provided the cleaning service, so they arrived an hour before we expected. Lastly, no cell service in this location; good for us, but some may have need of cell service and find this unacceptable.
All in all, this was the romantic retreat I was hoping for, and I would definitely book this home again for a large group gathering.
My husband and I along with 3 other couples stayed in this beautiful home last spring. We had a wonderful time. The home has plenty of room for a large family or friends. You are right on the river and see it from just about every room. You have the pool and a game room ,so no matter inside or out you have more than enough to do. Loved our time at this home and have made plans to return .
We stayed in the Jackson River House last summer. It has beautiful views, well stocked, very comfortable. Definitely going back this year!
