Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
This property is not as described by the pictures posted. Dirty carpet, stained mattresses (I have pictures) No Covid measures in place, it is not clean. If you have health issues don't book! The reviews state how great it is but, I am not sure how the property has so MANY good reviews hmmmm.

Bed and pull out was old and uncomfortable. Wifi was minimal. Door was a challenge to lock. No toilet paper or paper towel or hand soap. Fortunately I brought my own. Expected a bit more for the money.

The property is located in a very nice area. It is very close to all amenities and the cottage is very nice and clean. The host "Tom" is very friendly, approachable and kind. Highly recommended!

Beyond Disappointing
The cottage was not cleaned at all which was surprising with Covid-19. The 4 of us spent 30-45 min cleaning it. Dishes were dirty, drawers, table and counter were sticky. Bugs smooshed on the walls. We were supposed to have a 2 parking spot as requested but the drieway/parking spot was taken by a Winnebago with someone staying in it. Thankfully, we ended up only taking one vehicle but had to park on the grass. The grounds were a total mess. Advertisement stated a fountain was on the premises but it was not working and had stale water in it with overgrown bushes around it. Our sitting area outside the cottage had broken pieces, spider nests everywhere and the BBQ had 2 of the 4 elements working. One of the windows fell out and another the lock was completely broken and the screen on the front door was bolted shut. I had requested 4 chairs in the cottage but only 2 were supplied. We had to take in 2 patio chairs so we could eat. This was more like a hunting/fishing camp than a cottage. In addition, the electrical was exposed and an extension cord was being overused. The toilet was leaking everytime we'd flush. This was supposed to be my birthday week and it was beyond disappointing. We do our best to book with you and were very surprised that you would have this location as an option. Especially at the price we paid. I have pics to show what we had to experience and would like someone to contact me who is not the person caring for the property. Someone from here or higher up.
