I rented a cabin for my family vacation. I paid an extra pet cleaning fee in advance for our dogs. Upon leaving, the owner Julee King,started her scam. She took my deposit and first accused us of having an additional guest and then proceeded to change her accusations as I disproved them. She had her cleaning staff take secret survailence photos of my minor daughters and the rest of my family. I was appalled and shocked that an adult would not know how inappropriate and illegal that is! Mrs. King explained that the photos were not going to be used for publication but only to prove we left late. I never disputed that we did leave 15 minutes late (caused by two injuries to my family from a broken stone fireplace and glass door). I am sure any mother would agree that it is insane for anyone, especially the owner of a buisness, to resort to such inappropriate behavior regarding little girls. Once Mrs. King realized that I was outraged by her ilegal activity she decided to change her reasons for taking my deposit. Her claims ranged from us breaking the stone fireplace by sitting on it, to excessive dog hair, a dirty sheet, and scratches on the floor. It actually got a little comical when she claimed we allowed the dogs to get in the hot tub. In hind site, it is easy to see how Mrs. King attempted to set up this scam. Even though the contract called for her to write in all occupants she did not list my two daughters. She stated it wasnt necessary as they were not drivers. This allowed her to later start a disagreement about who all was there. Her method of taking photos to do so is outrageous! Luckily I have the emailed arrival docs and receipts she sent me that proves her deception. Mrs. King even went as far as threating to sue me if I filed any complaint. The Ironey regarding the secret photographs she took of my daughters is that they will prove we did not have an additional guest. Mrs. King has yet to produce the photos. Evidently she knows it was illegal to take them and or the photos do not show another occupant. If she had proof via photos then producing them would have ended the conflict. Mrs. King refunded some of my deposit but not all. At this point, it is no longer about the money for me. I feel it is my duty to warn other unsuspecting families that this owner is unstable and unprofessional to the point of spying and photographing little girls. If she is capable of that, who knows how far she will go? There are several other companies and owners to rent from in that area. I strongly reccomend staying far away from Lonsome paws Cabin Rentals. It’s a shame. .
