The location is great and it met our needs.
There were a few things that presented some challenges that could be addressed to make future stays better:
- the driveway needs some attention. There are several spots were the gravel is piled up causing some pretty big bumps for smaller cars.
- the main fridge would not keep food cold. We repeatedly tried to push it closed, but the door frame actually seems warped from some rust. Several items were actually warm when we got up the first morning, we moved everything to the smaller fridge in the laundry room.
- the various french doors around the house do not lock well and we struggled with them. We know the property is safe and we gave up trying to
Thank you for your review. We strive very hard to keep Wingshot maintained at the top of its game for everyone. The driveway is maintained and was already scheduled to be scraped and re-graveled after Thanksgiving when we have blocked out time for seasonal maintenance, as it is on a regular basis. We are sorry that your visit was just prior to scheduled work. There has been an unusual amount of rainfall and all on the Mtn are dealing with this. Regarding the doors, I wish you had asked either myself or Laci to explain and I'm sorry you did not understand. We have not had this issue with other guests. All doors are in perfect working order and we actually proactively had all locking mechanisms replaced last year when all the windows were replaced as well. The doors are custom Kolbe and Kolbe and are simple to use. Again, I'm sorry you encountered difficulty and wish you has asked during your stay instead of writing false information in a review. We take these item to heart and strive best we can to proactively stay on top of all. Also regarding the SubZero it has also been serviced and an entire new motor was installed last year. Due to the nature of subzero's it takes 24 hours to re-suction if it has been left open. Thank you again for your review.
Room for group or large family
We had lots of room for visiting. A toilet didn’t work and they sent someone fairly quickly to fix it. We had a wonderful time. It is hard to climb all the front stairs with luggage for older people.
Perfect place for a girls getaway weekend! Everything so nice. Plenty of room to spread out. We really enjoyed the screened in porch. Walked around University of the South, went to the big cross, the Natural Bridge, a craft fair. Drove a few miles over to the Dutch Maid bakery. Ate at Shenanigans and the Mountain Goat. Really cute, eclectic places. Some hiked Fiery Gizzard. Highly recommend the house and area for a long weekend.
We had a great stay. Like always too short. This a beautiful property and we will be back!! Loved it
Great location, nice house. Needs a few repairs like second floor bathroom had a very loose toilet seat, one of the ovens was working properly & the ice machine was broken but the owner told us about that ahead of time. Overall it was a great place to stay with a large crowd. Would stay there again!
Thank you for the heads up. The toilet seat was fixed the day this review posted. We are also always happy to the property manager address any needs that may arise during a stay- just let us know. 24/7 numbers are always provided. The ice maker unfortunately had just gone out the day before and service was scheduled as soon as we noticed, we did go purchase ice molds as well as placed bagged ice in the freezer for guest stay. The ice maker has been serviced and is now back up and running! Thank you again for the helpful feedback and hope you will return to the Mountain and Wingshot again soon! Sincerely,
Jennifer and Michael
It was a wonderful visit.
Renting was easy and went very smooth.
Luxury Sewanee Mountain House minutes from the University of the South. Great access to some of the best hiking in the US and also only a 45 minute drive from Chattanooga, 1 1/2 hours from Nashville and 2 1/2 hours from Atlanta.
