This is our 3rd trip to the Shawnee Wine trail in as many years. This cabin was Gorgeous with very comfortable beds but it was not without issues. there was no firewood. In past years the cabins we rented always had firewood. At first we were told it stated on the listing no firewood. But it was not, then we were told it was in the house rules, which it was not. Then it was added to the listing after the fact . Trash cans outside were completely full upon check-in we had no place to throw away our trash. This is a problem since the house rules book which was NOT listed online states an extra up charge for garbage not thrown out properly. It even states if cans are full, take your trash with you! Really? And put it where? Our vehicle was packed full of cases of wine suit cases and 5 ladies. Also, absolutely no privacy. No window coverings in the bedroom off the kitchen or the entire kitchen side and front of the house. We had to tape paper towels to windows. Listing reads 2 bathrooms but renter beware, only 1 shower, 2 toilets and 1 separate tub which is a jacuzzi. Master bath had no door. Just a curtain; very very strange. If you require special wood in burning stove, at least offer to supply for an upcharge. If you do book this cabin, call Lonnie Hickman of Hickman and Sons Lumber at (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). He will deliver 4 arms of wood for only $15. It was plenty of wood for two nights of campfires. We found Lonnie the 2nd day after called at least 5 gas station/stores. Finally, be aware, your dishes are washed by previous renters. It's stated in the rules book located in the cabin, which is very detailed and quite frankly ridiculous with added up charges for the slightest mishap of cleaning. I've never heard of a renter being required to run the dishwasher upon leaving. I was under the impression that is what the cleaning crew is responsible for. That rulebook, quite frankly, should be online and it is not!

and to do what we can to help each group have the best experience possible. To aid in that our House Manual has a lot of resources in it about things like how to operate the grill, the WIFI password, and how to use the wood stove. It also has a couple of short departure instructions, such as requesting that guests load and start the dishwasher so food doesn’t dry on them (our cleaning staff will put them away); to wipe out the microwave and address any spills to safeguard the counters and hardwood; and where to put used towels so they do not mildew. This small list helps the cleaning staff make the most of their time as they clean and sanitize the property. Until now we have not listed the departure instructions in Airbnb’s House Rules section because they were fairly minimal. However, based on your suggestion we have now added them. Each property on Airbnb offers different amenities and has their own style. To find the right property for your occasion and party's needs, we always encourage guests to read listings thoroughly. We do not supply firewood because some past guests would burn through a winter's worth of wood in a weekend. Also, we do not have a convenient place to store the wood that would not be accessible to everyone, so we make it clear in our Airbnb House Rules section that it is not offered. Based on your suggestion we have added it to the written description as well. To continue in the spirit of transparency, I would add that the master bath is in an alcove outside the master bedroom. One steps up from that alcove to enter the actual bathroom which has heavy curtains to close it off. This alcove is closed off from the bedroom and the living space with doors on either side. Also, it is true that the house does not have coverings on the windows across the front, as all of those windows look into a foryer area and not an actual living space. The other windows without coverings (the kitchen and the very small window in the bedroom you mentioned) face a steep embankment and the extensive woods that wrap around part of the house. You are the first guest to mention it being an issue. We are now looking into coverings. Finally, we did miss the mark on the garbage, in that normally our cleaning staff will swap out cans if they are full. This detail was missed in this particular case and I am truly sorry. Had we known, we could have helped resolve by offering the location of other receptacles on the property. Guests do not have to take garbage home with them. We understand that our guests come to CornerStone Cabins to enjoy the woods and nature, to relax, and to get away from daily life. We are gratified that this commitment has earned us a 5-star rating on all the platforms we list on, as well as online in general. We thank you for your feedback, Sheri, and wish you all the best. Sincerely, The Team at CornerStone Cabins

The premises is nice and quiet in the middle of beautiful forest. The check-in was very convenient and the host had been very good for communication. The place was able to fit half a dozen people without any problem. Plenty of dishes are available for cooking and enjoying your drink. We'd enjoyed bonfire every night and loud music outside the house. There is no need to worry about bothering the neighbors if you like to enjoy loud music outside. The shiny lit stars made our evenings vivid and pleasurable.

We had a wonderful stay. Nicely decorated, clean with beautiful surroundings. The kids loved the butterfly bushes, loft and swing. Would book again and recommend to family/friends. Thank you.

What a wonderful place to stay - the cabin is decorated in an artistic manner, is clean, and has all (and more) the amenities one might need. We appreciated all of the art work in the cabin, as well as the artisan "The Corner Stone" sign upon arrival. And, the cabin is surrounded by such natural beauty including flowering bushes out front that attracted so many beautiful butterflies. Relaxing in the hammock was lovely! We hope to stay here again in the future.
