Had a great stay! Americade June 2011

The cottage was in an excellent location. It is within walking distance to everything.
The cottage had it's pros and cons like anywhere else:
Restaurants, Shopping, Deli, Bar, the cruise ships. It is on the main strip (so you could sit out by the street and watch all the people) There was a great pizza place right across the street and the bar/restaurant next door also had a deli for breakfast and lunch sandwiches, plenty of off street parking, fully stocked kitchen, clean linens and towels, cleaning supplies if needed, gas grill, tables and chairs on the porch, since it is in an area that occasionally has some storms and power outages there were flashlights in all rooms (some needed new batteries). It slept 7 adults comfortably, 2 were in the main living area on a queen sofa bed (which was very comfortable), The rental agent was very friendly and accommodating. Keys were easy to get especially if you were a late arrival. Plenty of dresser space in both bedrooms.
The cons: (which are not that bad)
Bathrooms were a little out dated and small, they need some minor repairs like a higher shower head (for tall people) or one that was detachable, new flooring and new sink, but they were clean. If you were using all the air conditioners (3) and you used a curling iron or blow dryer the circuit breaker blew. The front bedroom did not have a TV or air conditioner (would be okay if children were sleeping there) but the back bedroom had both.
It was definitely better than a hotel room! I will be making plans to stay again.

Owner's Response: I appreciate the comments about the cottage! It certainly is in a great location!
I do agree with your cons and every home is certainly a work in progress. I would like to let past and potential renters know that we are planning to renovate both bathrooms, put new ceramic flooring in bathrooms and in the kitchen and update the wiring upstairs so that we can have air conditioners and TV's in each bedroom! That's our plan for the offseason.
Thank you so much for your comments and hope to see you next season!
