“All in All, not recommanded”

Generally, this cottage is nice and there are plenty of things to do around York: the Ogunguit beaches, the Kittery outlets, the Agamenticus mountain, etc.. One of the rooms is huge and has a private bathroom. The other room is also OK. If you are more than four people, any additional person will have to sleep in the den and should not expect privacy or comfort. The kitchen and dining room are very convenient, ideal for families with kids.
However, in other respects, we were very disappointed. We would have liked to be informed in advance that some of us would sleep in the den and that the owner would be present in an adjacent house for the duration of our stay (she lives in an apartment located above the garage and there is a skywalk between her apartment and the house). It is not that we had anything to hide, but we would have liked some more intimacy given the price that we have paid. We often heard the owner’s steps very early in the morning, as well as her telephone conversations. Also, we had some trouble with the owner to obtain internet access during the first day. We were also surprised that the owner sent us dissatisfaction emails from the owner because we checked in late (pretending that she waited for us and had to miss work for that reason), even if we sent emails to notify her in advance. We think she should think about other arrangements other that waiting on the premises, just to leave a key.
Perhaps our expectations were high, based on the information made available by the owner of the cottage, both on this website and other websites. To sum up, we would not recommend this place unless you are very quiet, retired people, who are looking for a place to rest for a week. It is just not worth the price that we have paid.

It is stated clearly on the website that the third sleeping area is in the den with pull out sofa. I also explained this verbally on the phone as well as stating that I live on site. I gave the renters an exceptionally generous check in time between 2-6 pm. For the renters to arrive at 7pm was extremely inconsiderate to me. They did not even bother to give a phone call to say they were arriving late.
