I gave this listing 4 stars, mostly because it isn’t really what most people think of when they think of a 5 star stay. It’s exactly what I picture when I think of a family vacation home. It’s an older home, and it’s been well loved. It’s a bit shabby but comfortable and really clean. It’s much larger than it appears from the front.
We slept on the King size bed and while it wasn’t the most comfortable mattress we ever slept on., it was far from the worst. (And mattresses are a very personal thing anyhow.). As the listing says, this home could very comfortably sleep 6.
The shining star here is the beautiful view and the expansive deck to enjoy it from. We saw a couple of bald eagles pass by at least four or five times within 24 hours.
We visited Cumberland Falls and Natural Arch scenic area while we stayed here. Both were definitely worth seeing, although the Arch requires a bit of work to see, as there are around 160 steps down to get to it. It seemed like a lot more on the way back!
I cannot speak to the internet as we were never able to access it. Our phone data worked great though. We didn’t try to watch tv either.
My biggest negative is the communication with the host, but this did not factor into my rating. We never got any of the emails that they sent, and in some cases even sent twice,, except for the messages they sent via the VRBO site. Between the two of us we spent better than an hour searching email/trash and junk but never found them. The host had the correct email address so I’m not sure where the problem was.
All in all, it was a relaxing weekend.
