Common Questions about Vacation Rental Homes & VRBO
Frequently Asked Traveler Questions
WHY DEERFIELD VACATION RENTALS INSTEAD OF USING VRBO?
We get this question so often at the resort. You can go online today and find many homes where the owners choose to rent and handle on their own. Some of these homes are exactly what are depicted in their advertising. Generally the pricing is pretty comparable to our rates. What you might get is a home or condo that is not as it is advertised. We hire only the best to clean and maintain our units. We have contractors on call 24 hours a day if you should have a problem with your rental. We have staff here at Deerfield Resort on call - on site 24 hours a day in case you do have a problem. We keep propane tanks in house to exchange when your grill is empty. We also have staff that can be in your unit within minutes if you have a problem. We evaluate each rental home on our program each year to see if it has measured up to our standards. There are many homes and condos on VRBO that were once managed by us and removed because of the substandard conditions. Every year we get visitors who had a home reserved on the lake that had issues keeping them from using it for their vacation. Many times, we find them a unit so they can stay on the lake. Those guests realize how easily a vacation can be ruined by not having a back up unit. We will always do our best to find you a home if the one you have reserved has a mechanical issue making it un-rentalable. Consider what you are paying for when checking out a vacation home online. You deserve the best vacation so make your reservation with the best!

Why should I use Deerfield Vacation Rental to book my vacation home?
Deerfield Resort was one of the first to start a vacation rental company on Norris Lake. It has been this model that others have emulated. Before our homes are accepted into our rental pool, they are inspected and required to meet our requirements for rental. We continue to monitor homes and rate them to ensure that they keep our standards. Once we accept a rental in a home, the owner does not have the option to move or cancel that rental because they decide that they want to use the home. If homes fall below our standards or guidelines, they are given an option to upgrade, change or they are removed from our rental pool. We have stayed one of the largest rental programs on the lake because our renters know they can trust that what we offer is what they get when they arrive. Our business has been built on return guests.
