Perfect ladies retreatJanuary 4, 2019
This house was perfect for our large group! The kitchen was well stocked and the oven’s worked perfectly. Brenda and her property manager were quick communicators and very helpful. The property was beautiful and spacious. The area is great! Highly recommend!
Beautiful but you should know some things before you go...November 2, 2018
We took a group of 28 girls to this beautiful estate for a ‘Girls Retreat Weekend’. They loved the spaciousness and comfiness of the rooms! There are a few things that you should know from an organization side. Kitchen: Though there are 3 ovens on site; only one of them worked well for us. The commercial oven had a tilt that made it hard to use for certain items. We were able to heat bread in it but couldn’t cook lasagna. There’s also a double oven but since there were only 2 racks we could only use one of them. There are 2 sinks but only one worked. There are lots of pots/dishes but few large enough to cook or serve for that big of a crowd. There’s little storage area in the kitchen, the garbage bags provided are very small/thin, and there wasn’t much toilet paper provided. I found the heater for the master suite very hard to regulate. The temperature was set very low. Once turned up, it never stopped blowing hot air and then cold air. I didn’t sleep at all the first night as I burned up then froze. Also, it would be good to have some instructions for the pool. The girls wanted to swim but couldn’t figure out easily how to set the temperature. The initial temp said it was 80 degrees but it was very cold. If they had known that they needed to increase the temperature, they would have been able to enjoy the pool. It also would have been nice if there was dry wood for the fireplace.
Overall, everyone had a great time. We really enjoyed the coffee and tea stations. The girls loved having dance parties in the basement. I loved that I could be in a different part of the house where it was quiet so I could read. : )
Response from Genesis Country Estate
We are happy you enjoyed your stay, yet we apologize that things were not completely as you expected. We do wish you would of reached out to us during your stay so that we could have handle these concerns immediately. We are never far from the site just so we can help our guest with any questions or concerns. We do allow different events at our property and we understand the not everyone one is familiar with commercial appliances. The commercial oven may be tricky if you’re not accustomed to using one, but the racks can be separated. With the commercial sink, the second sink, you must turn the handle that controls the nozzle, before the water will flow out of the faucet. We would of loved for you to call us so we could of easily talked you through using them. We apologize for the inconvenience this brought you. We try to accommodate for guests of different styles with an abundant supply of various dishes, pots and pans for guests during their visit so they do take up some space and we always supply and use Glad trash bags. Our policy is to supply two rolls of toilet paper per bathroom. Yes the pool is heated but since it was November it did need to be adjusted a little. Most guest don’t use the pool during the colder month since it is outside. However, if you would of let us that you wanted to use the pool we would have adjusted the temperature for you before your stay. Also, we would of loved for you to call us and we would have came right over to adjust it or would have walked you through it. As well as the temperature in the home. With that being said, we do appreciate you staying with us at Genesis and leaving a review. It allows lets us know where things are great and where we might need to improve. We hope to see you again. Just remember we are only a phone call away and we are ready and happy to help whenever we can. Have a Happy Holiday.

Work TripOctober 4, 2018
My work team scheduled our team meetings here and didn’t leave since we were getting a lot done and having a great time as well. Great place with lots of beds and fully capable kitchen, bbq, pool, space for meetings, and fire pit! We would go back for sure.
