JACUZZI GONE BAD

On May 19, 2013 my wife and I visited Settlers Crossing for the second time in about 16 months. We had made reservations for three nights. On the evening of our arrival, the jacuzzi either malfunctioned or we simply did not know how to operate it. Either way, an 11 pm. call to David Estes, the owner of Settlers Crossing, was to no avail . . . even though the call was made to his emergency phone number. Water was spraying all over the bathroom floor until we finally figured how to turn it off. Mr. Estes finally returned our call the next morning about 10 am. and bluntly informed me that there was nothing he could have done the previous evening because of the late hour. Therefore, there was no reason for him to have answered the telephone at that time. He did agree to refund our money for the reservation. We have yet to hear from him. Still no refund as of June 10, 2013. Parenthetically, my wife and I perhaps foolishly drove all night to return home following the incident as we were both quite angry and upset because of the treatment we received at Settlers Crossing. A couple of observations: 1. It might have been as simple as turning a knob or making an adjustment in the jacuzzi in order to have salvaged a much-anticipated holiday by my wife and I; and, 2. What if we had been unable to turn the water off . . . or the place was burning to the ground? Would Mr. Estes still try to justify his indifference? One can only surmise that his rest receives more priority that taking care of his Settlers Crossing guests.

Cool Place to Stay

What a cool place to stay. We stayed in the Von Heinrich house which was absolutely charming. All the comforts of home! We had the pleasure of visitors each day. Momma donkey and her baby, a herd of sheep with babies. Such a romantic getaway.

Perfect

Setttler's Crossing is Perfect. Very peaceful and relaxing. The grounds are wonderful and the amenities are wonderful. The cottage we stayed in was beautifully decorated with the lastest amenities.

Money Hungry

We booked a weekend, did not get the insurance incase of cancleation. Had an emergency, Explained the situation with the owners. They still charged us the full rate for the weekend even though we could not go. Will never book with them again, nor will we recommend.
