Thank you for having us. This location was so great for us as it was just a few driveways from our ailing parents, it couldn't have been better. The home is very spacious with 3 levels but lacks insulation so sounds traveled between floors. The view is great and private, lots of decking and parking. The amenities are lower end, the house could use a few pairing and sharp knives, more silverware, new towels, ( the downstairs towels needed to be washed as they were quite musty) bathroom soap, shampoo, conditioner, foil and saran wrap, we ran to the store so many times for small things. I realize that they probably were not intended to be included. One thing that the owner must add is a first aid kit, ( Band-aids, hydrogen peroxide, a needle, neosporen etc) We needed that badly our first night one of the kids got a large splinter upstairs and it was horrible getting it out with nothing. The other thing we lacked was a blow-dryer. With 4 bathrooms I'd suggest you get at least one. We ALL forgot ours and went out with wet un-styled hair. The house could use some deep cleaning like the shower enclosure calking and the washing machine seal but even with these issues we feel that the location and value for us was really super and we hope to rent it again. We needed a few more comforters / blankets also. The heating downstairs only worked if the upstairs was too hot . Once you are in bed it didn't matter but the kids didn't really play downstairs like we thought as it was cold.
The first night we were there the gas ran out on the grille as we were finishing cooking dinner so we couldn't use the grille the other 4 nights, sad.
The front porch pendant light doesn't work, we even got a ladder and changed the bulb but it needs to be fixed. With out railings it was scary at night for the our older parents.
These are all minor but good suggestions for the owner. Once again, thank you for having us, it was a good vacation and the house was good.
See you again next year!
There was 1 king down stairs, 1 queen upstairs, then the other 2 bedrooms had full beds ( shorter) and one twin bed with a foot board. It worked ok for us as we had 5 adults and the rest kids but if it was all adults it wouldnt have worked. The kids also used the extra futon mattress on the floor downstairs.
Next time we'll come more prepared also.
