“Not the Ritz but comfortable”
Reviewed 2 July 2016 for a stay in May 2016

If you are looking for the Ritz, this is not it. That said, the home if fairly comfortable. If the need arose that the family would be in the same area at the same time again, we would probably stay in this home. It is convenient to freeway and grocery stores, as well as, sightseeing.

It is not, however, as fully advertised. The owners advertise that this is a 4 bathroom house. There is one full bath, one ¾ bath, one half bath, and a cold water shower outside on the patio. This doesn’t remotely add up to a 4 bathroom house. It’s doable, but not as advertised. It also advertises 3 bedrooms. Interestingly, I looked around on line to find the property. The home is listed on several rental sights and has different descriptors on some. Cost listed on those sites also vary.

The home is older with several additions through the years. One addition was a very large room which has been divided by furniture. Part is an office and the other part is called a bedroom because it has a bed in it. It works, but isn’t a real bedroom where you can go in, close the door, have a closet (there is one in the office part), etc. There is a queen bed as well as a chaise lounge that can be used for sleeping. There is a door that accesses the small back porch.

The two bedrooms that are real bedrooms are very spacious. The front bedroom had a full bed with a comfortable mattress. The bed was not connected to the headboard and migrated nightly about 6 inches. There was a crib/toddler bed that was added after we said we had a baby. This was not in the pics we had seen; thus it was a very nice surprise.

The front bedroom is somewhat noisy. The property is on the corner of a fairly busy intersection. Also, the room was much colder than the rest of the house. There is a very large main AC vent in the corner of the closet (sorry, forgot to take a pic).

The second bedroom is filled with 4 twin beds. The room is big enough that it’s not totally overwhelming. The mattresses are comfortable enough. Again, at least one bed is mobile moving some but not as much as the on in the master bedroom. The other 3 beds are against the wall. The AC vent in the room barely has air moving through like something is blocking the vent. There is a large closet in this room as well.

There is a large long living room that is divided into 2 sections. This allows for some separation if you want, but maintains proximity for conversation in a large group. The main couch is a sectional that separates during use. It is comfortable otherwise.

There is a TV and DVD player in the cabinet. Local HDTV channels are available. No other rooms have a TV. There is no cable. Only one TV and no cable were okay-we don’t have them at home either! The house has wireless internet, but if multiple people are using it at the same time, it is slow.

We had 9 people and made sure we took shifts for bathing. We never ran out of hot water (a big plus!). Soap, shampoo, and conditioner were in the showers. I would have liked more towels, as well as larger towels/bath sheets, provided.

The kitchen has updated appliances. There was a hodge podge variety of old pots and pans, but we were able to make meals. There were only 2 large coffee cups. There were several small tea cups. For a large coffee drinking family, we were fighting over the larger cups. There were not enough large glasses for our size group. There were smaller cups. Doable, but it was a nuisance to have to keep refilling them more often. We needed to wash dishes after every meal to have enough for the next meal.

The dining area had a large square table. There was room for all of us. However, if would have been uncomfortable if all 9 had been adults. There was a large counter area that we used to serve meals buffet style. A couple of bar stools are available for eating there too.

Laundry room was adequate and had a ½ bath off of it. General repairs need to be done, ie a few broken sockets, main electrical panel held in by duct tape, very large hole behind garbage can in kitchen with duct tape. The home also needs to deep cleaned, ie dust bunnies under bed, ceiling fans dirty, dusty….

The yard is very large which does help dampen the noise from the busy street some. It has a creek down the hill in the back. Across the street is a large grassy area and sidewalk that goes to a nearby park. The shrubbery needs to be trimmed back. A gas grill and patio with table and chairs are at the back of the house. The “4th” bathroom, aka, cold shower spigot, is by the gas grill.

The owners were friendly. Fresh flowers from the yard were placed in numerous spots around the house making it more inviting. However, while staying there, they wanted to be working in the house to install a security video system. I think it could have been scheduled for another day knowing that the home was reserved during that time. They had been working outside and never mentioned to me that someone would be doing work inside. I asked the worker to reschedule for a few days later because we were leaving by then.

As I said, it is a comfortable house and would stay again, if the need arose. I got the feeling that the owners haven’t had the property long. Hopefully, it will only improve.

“Exceeded Expectations”
Reviewed 3 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Myself and 8 others, including two young children, visited the Atlanta area over Thanksgiving holiday and had the pleasure of renting Stone Creek Lodge. With having such young children we wanted something with space, family friendly, and within our budget. Stone Creek Lodge fit our needs perfectly. Lots of space, cozy and cute little details to make it feel like a home away from home. I would gladly recommend staying here for anyone else looking to rent a home while visiting the area.
