“Wonderful House, Great Experience!”
Reviewed 30 September 2015 for a stay in November 2014

My group of 20 people stayed in this house last Fall, and I must say it was a great experience! Everything was very clean, the house was HUGE and the owner was friendly and reliable. Highly reccomended!

Reviewed 26 August 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We must have snapped a thousand pictures while here. Westcott has tons of space and is very beautiful on the inside. My friends and I will never forget the time we spent here. And thanks to Theresa for helping us!

“An amazing place with a few things needed to make it perfect”
Reviewed 8 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015

We rented the Westcott House for our Wedding and Reception over the 4th of July weekend in 2015. First let me say that this is a beautiful facility that was the perfect size and set up for our wedding with a total of 49 attendees. 35 of the attendees stayed at the Westcott House and the balance were either only day attendees or stayed in other local facilities. With 35 people staying in the house, we worried about running out of hot water, it was never an issue.
We used the downstairs 1500 sq ft room for the wedding and the cocktail hour and the upstairs great room for the reception. It all worked out beautifully for us. Now some of the issues.
1.) For the number of people, there is not enough refrigerator and freezer space, so you will need lots of coolers and ice to keep things cold if you have a large group.
2.) You cannot open any window in the house to allow for natural breezes to flow through.
3.) Over the 4th of July weekend, there were so many flies that it made eating outside IMPOSSIBLE. There is a nice picnic area and grill and we could not use the picnic tables because of the files. We could not use the picnic tables on the deck because of the flies. We could not have the wedding outside as planned because of the files and other bugs on the grassy areas.
4.) The chicken house. There is a chicken farm next door. The chicken house is approximately 400 yards from the Westcott House and you can frequently smell the chickens. The two times we visited prior to our actual rental there must not have been any chickens in the house because we could neither smell or hear anything. For our rental we could smell and hear them quite well with the numerous roosters crowing almost constantly. They could not be heard inside, but definitely could be heard outside.
5.) Several of the closets in the bedrooms do NOT have any kind of rods for hanging clothes. Big beautiful closet with no rods is kind of useless.
6.) The WIFI. The WIFI is nice, if you can get on it. The router is not setup to handle the number of connections that can be created by 35 people with SAMRTPHONES and Tablets and Laptops. The WIFI would simply refuse connections once it became overwhelmed. I suggest the installation of a second router and/or the reconfiguration of the existing router to support the number of connections that can be created by a full occupancy load of 42 people.
7.) No sound systems. I was surprised to find that no sound system existed either upstairs or down to go with the beautiful TV's, DVD players and Satellite TV. Would be a nice touch.
When we fist found this place on the internet, we booked it sight unseen and we are glad we did, because it allowed us to have the wedding weekend, for our very large families, that we wanted to have. We will be back to the Westcott House in the future, probably for a family reunion or other special event, so we hope that these small issues will be addressed and the facility brought up to being perfect.
Thanks to Cardigan Cabins for all you did for us this past weekend.

Management Response

Thanks for your kind words - we have really poured a lot of effort into making WH an ideal place for weddings, group events and get-togethers. The fly situation is bad all over Page County this year. Far and why, every cabin is reporting problems. The locals talk about it non-stop. This period of the year has been very damp and humid. We expect that to clear up soon and return to normal. The nearby farm does make some noise during parts of the year. As the guest mentioned, this is only noticeable outside and on certain parts of the property. Most of the property, you cannot hear anything, and certainly not inside. We hope you come out again!

“Perfect location for our casual wedding!!”
Reviewed 2 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We rented Westcott House over Memorial Day weekend to get married. We had plenty of room for our family and friends to stay right there at the cabin with us. The setting was perfect. There was plenty of room in and around the cabin for everyone to enjoy. We also enjoyed two evenings at the fire pit which was fantastic.

“Great stay despite some adversity”
Reviewed 27 February 2015 for a stay in February 2015

We rented Westcott House for a weekend to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were a party of 18 - 12 adults and 6 young children. The accommodation was spacious and ideal - ample bedrooms, ample bathrooms, great spaces for children and adults to play and a well equipped kitchen. We had a great time. Our rental was, however, over the coldest weekend of the winter with freezing temperatures and a major snow storm. The two physical problems we had were a frozen sewer line which meant we to restrict our water use and, on the morning we were leaving, a burst water pipe which started to flood the whole basement area. In both instances the staff responded quickly and tried to help. In the case of the burst pipe members of our party mopped up most of the water and moved furniture to minimize damage. The owners gave us a discount to compensate. Despite our problems we have no hesitation in recommending this as a great get-away for a big group.
