    Chambers were a dream to work with, responded to every call and concern over a 4 month stay. The house needs some TLC by owner.

    We really enjoyed our stay. Very nice residence in a beautiful setting close to town. We would stay there again. And the folks at Chambers Realty were very helpful and easy to work with.

    a guest from Ojai, California does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Apple Lodge is a prettily sited rustic house in a mountain setting. Ours was a three plus week rental. It's well stocked with basic amenities and the master bedroom addition is comfortable, roomy, well laid out with a large walk-in closet, bath with a good shower and big laundry room. The rest of the house is not as accommodating. The living/dining area is dark with uncomfortable, old furniture and poor lighting. The kitchen's adequate. The screened in porch is a plus with good dining furniture. The drive in garage is spacious. The house needs several large skylights to lighten up the dark areas. That with a furniture upgrade would make it top notch.

    Carol S from Ocean Springs, MS recommends this vacation rental

    The location of house was beautiful. Gravel road heading up Big Bear Pen Mountain. Lovely walks up there. Close to town. Everything in house was well stocked. I would just say that mattress of king size bed needs replacing. And bedding in twin bed room needs freshening up.

    a guest from Atlanta, GA recommends this vacation rental

    As a family of four, we had a wonderful, long weekend at Apple Lodge. The home is a lot larger than the photos led on. Very generously sized rooms. Kitchen well appointed. Very private location. Not a bad trip into town, but there is a steep gravel road to traverse. The only room for improvement is bringing the furnishings and furniture more up-to-date, and add at least a sleeper sofa or Murphy bed in the second guest room.

    Sharon A from Evans, Georgia recommends this vacation rental

    This lovely ranch home has the perfect location. Quiet and very much in the top of the mountains, yet only five minutes away from downtown restaurants and shops. The home was very clean! However, the sheets on the twin beds smelled stale and the comforters were extremely dated. I washed the sheets and blankets and had a great night sleep. Neither of the fireplaces worked for us. There was a reading room that we all felt would have been better suited as a bedroom instead of utilizing a sleeper sofa. None of these things would hinder us from renting this home again. We could not imagine having a better location for the price of the home. Thank you for a wonderful weekend!!!!

    Janis S from Palm Beach Gardens, FL recommends this vacation rental

    Close to main town. Large 2 bedrooms, 3 beds all on one floor. We did not use den with 2 chairs & tv. Large living space. Large screened porch we used once. Preferred view out front door. Partial view of mountains and sunset by standing in the driveway. Nice garage with remote but we did not use. Beautiful trails into town 20-30 minutes (but would not walk them at night). House among the trees is without natural light so we always slept later than expected. Steep narrow dirt road with two 180 switchbacks scared us at first but after one day we drove them like the locals. Jeannie was helpful and allowed us to park at the office during 7/4 celebrations. However needed a crib and the one given us could not be tolerated by the adults let alone the infant (mold?) Children used the front side yard to play. Neighbor allowed us to use her fire pit to roast marshmellows. I would recommend for friends or families who can bring their own packnplay.
