I give it an excellent rating because though the house is undergoing improvements it was clean and it was comfortable. I should note that our family does not demand everything be Hilton-esque and some may think that the bedrooms are somewhat sparse, however we found it very nice when compared with other rentals at the same price.
One of the features is the fenced in yard. We were able to let our Westie out of the door whenever he wanted to run, so he had a vacation too.
The house is off the main road and I dont think we heard a single car pass during our stay. The pond is 130 paces from the property. My daughter caught a pickerel in the first 10 minutes of fishing. The larger back deck is very comfortable. There are neighbors on either side, but they are friendly and quiet. The owner was rarely there and when he was it was only evident because his car was there.
The beds are comfortable, though the bedrooms are a bit sparse. There is NO evidence that this is a pet-friendly house. No smells, no pet hair, nothing. When you enter the house there is a very handy counter to your left where you can put things down.The kitchen was nice and clean, new fridge from what I could tell. The large main room is condusive to relaxing together.
Again, our family had a wonderful, relaxing time and we look forward to renting from Peter again next year.
