Disliked: Amenities
Not suitable for our stay. Thought there was a bathroom inside the cottage. Definitely not up to our expectations

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness
Good low cost , economical basic accommodations. A little bit of a marine junk yard some do not like, perhaps adds to the character. I have both camped in a tent and this time rented a cottage. Located on the best river:)

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
Best way to describe it, it looks like my grandfather and his buddies made cabins with what they have in the garage and then left everything else on the lawn. I am sure the owner has good intentions and its a nice spot, its just they need to change their approach.
