Overall we were very satisfied. The only area that could have used more attention is the outside deck and furniture. We had to sweep deck and clean outside table (looked like table had leftover stains from a meal). The house was very nice. We had to make a call about septic alarm after hours that was answered very promptly and courteously. Thank you for providing a wonderful place to stay!

The cabin was in a great location and the two things we enjoyed the most were the large deck and being pet friendly. Recommend adding WI-FI (especially with lack of cell service for communication purposes). Also to fix tv upstairs(or remove it) and maybe add some sport channels/better tv service. Had a very nice stay overall.
The owners have provided a house phone which calls may be received on, and long distance calls can be made with a calling card. Many people come to the mountains to take a break from their electronic devices.

The Rangel Retreat is a very nice, well maintained cabin in a great location. We have rented it at least once a year for the last five years and always enjoyed it. We plan to rent it again.

Unit gets cursory cleaning between guests; blinds, electric heaters, under beds were very dirty. Refrigerator dirty and has 2 broken door shelves. Several pots and pans were dirty. Very few utensils to use on many teflon pans. Overall lighting very poor plus burned out bulbs in living room light we could not reach to replace. One bed had no upper sheet. Very low amount of paper foil, no napkins, 2 kleenex in one box; no other kleenex. Hot water was SCALDING. No axe to make kindling; not able to make fire for backup heat. By far worse rental experience in Arnold in 30 years.
Thank you for your feedback. We have looked in to all of your issues and have taken care of the stool and the linens. We are also researching ways to comfortably fit more people in the dining area. Come back and see us soon!

The layout of the house was perfect for our two families. The kids had fun playing and sleeping in the loft while the adults could have a conversation downstairs. The DVD wasn't hooked up and the TV upstairs wasn't hooked up to anything which was a bummer, but we managed without it. It would have been nice to have wifi in the house also. But the location was great and the patio was big and nice too, so overall we had a very pleasant experience. Thanks!

We rented the Rangel Retreat with another family, and enjoyed the home overall. The home needs a good cleaning, though. There were cobwebs in the corners, but the fridge was clean, and the kitchen well stocked with all the cooking utensils. The garage kept opening by itself, so we had to cut the power in order for it to stay closed, the dishwasher never got the dishes clean after multiple runs, so we had to wash EVERYTHING by hand (arg!) And the beds were pretty uncomfortable. Limited TV channels, no working DVD player encouraged us to play games and unplug! But overall we enjoyed the location and the nice fireplace really heated the house nicely. Would recommend for families with older children.
