Thanks for the note, Joseph! Glad you enjoyed your stay on Valentine's Day weekend. Wine & steaks, cold weather, and a great deck to enjoy it all from. :) Take care!

Response from Sheri:

We have the same dilemma when we visit Willow -- we could spend literally our whole trip on the front deck with coffee in the morning, wine in the evenings. . . :) So glad you enjoyed it, and we hope to have you back!

When I saw the weather forecast for the time during your stay, I was bummed! But then I realized some of my most favorite times at the cabin are during inclement weather, since it's so peaceful and quiet there. I am glad to hear that you found things to do, and that you enjoyed your stay! Thanks for choosing Willow Ridge, Debra, and come back anytime.

Response from Sheri:

We were initially very excited to have another international guest at our cabin! He paid on time and was responsive to the check-in and check-out times. Our Housekeeping crew did not report any issues with his family's stay, and we are glad they were able to enjoy the United States -- albeit perhaps with different cabin rental traditions than he may be used to.

Unfortunately, we cannot stock groceries in our cabin for guests, a fact which is noted in all of our listings and reiterated in our Welcome Packet which is sent to guests 2-4 weeks before their stay -- this simply cannot be done in a short-term rental home due to food safety regulations and time lags between guest visits in slow seasons. Before we bought our cabin and decided to share it with others, we also rented many cabins in the area. Those experiences helped us to find out what was the norm and what would be "that little extra touch" that would make our cabin special -- like complimentary dishwasher and laundry soap, shampoo and conditioner and soap for the bathrooms, and extra bathroom tissue and towels for our guests.

We do leave little notes around our cabin to help guests with operating the television remotes, the wi-fi access information, the computer login access information, etc. We were disappointed that our tongue-in-cheek "please enjoy our little laptop computer while you're here, and even though it's not brand new, we hope it doesn't accidentally find its way into our guests' suitcases, wink-wink!" humor must have been lost in translation.

We care greatly about our visitors and go the extra mile to ensure everyone has a wonderful stay. It's disappointing that it was misinterpreted, as it is clearly not our intent to assume folks are "thieves," and can only assume it was due to a language barrier.

We've rented our cabin for two years now, and by the stellar reviews on this site and (website hidden), it is clear that we cherish our guests who choose our cabin for their vacation getaways and who clearly recognize the extra effort we apply to Willow Ridge. We have to accept that this was a very unique and out-of-character review by a guest who must have set different expectations than what was advertised and offered by our beautiful home and our hospitality.

What a treat to read your review! When we purchased this beautiful (and our only) cabin, we really hoped to have this type of response! And from our experience in having rented cabins in the past, we hoped those little touches would make our guests feel so wonderful, and we're honored and thrilled that they--you--did! Thank you for validating our decision to rent our home, Debbie! And I'll pass your note along to the parents--they will crack up! You are welcome anytime to come back to Willow; I sincerely hope to hear from you again!
