“High ick factor”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

This cottage could be charming and cozy, but it needs upgrading and serious cleaning. Windows do not open - most of them - so there's no fresh air and no alternate exits in an emergency. The CO2 detector is in the kitchen and no longer works; the heating furnace chimney actually runs through a bedroom. With no way to air out the house, the old shag carpet, the towels, the curtains, and the bedding hold the damp and become smelly. Walls and doors need proper repainting, not just touch ups. The gritty old paint holds dirt and people hair. The light wood kitchen fan has black edges. We left a much longer list for the rental company, in hopes that their cleaning service will do better and the owner can be encouraged to attend to deferred maintenance issues.

Our housekeeping and maintenance team strive to respond in a timely manner as soon as they learn of issues. There is also an emergency line available 24-7 to report issues that arise during the time of stay.

We do hope that you stay in one of our other vacation rentals and that we have the opportunity to serve you in the future.

Thank you for the helpful review. We are sorry that you felt like the house was poorly maintained. It is an older house with older furniture and priced accordingly as one of our least expensive homes; however, that is not an excuse for it not be cleaned up to our typical standard. We will discuss with the housekeeper and be sure that attention is given to that. We apologize for your experience with that, as you know that is not typical with our rentals! We do hope you come stay with us again.
