Fun but needs Spring Cleaning
The overall experience was fun but the house needed a little T.L.C. I'll start with the negative and end with the possitive. The bed comforters were dirty and some of the sheets had makeup stains, The kitchen applliances ,cabinets and drawers needed to be emptied out and thoughouly cleaned. The floors in the bathrooms and halls needed vacumed. The chimney is probably full of leaves because when we tried to light a fire the entire house was filled with smoke. The flew was open. The house had wood floors throughout including the stairs so you could hear every move everyone made from every room in the house. It states it sleeps 10 but there are really only 3 bedrooms. One master with its own bath . Two bedrooms upstairs one with a king that shares a bath with a room with 2 queens. The other beds are over a garage with no access to a bathroom and the beds are uncomfortable futons. The 3rd couple that was staying with us actually left early because of the accomadations. Having to go down a flight of creeky stairs in the middle of the night to use a bathroom was kind of a drag. The basement had a great bathroom but no bedroom. If you wanted a hot shower that was where you were going to get it. We actually checked out a day early because we had to go to a wedding and my family of four was tired of cold showers. Now the possitive. The owners came over with new bed linens, brand new comforters and refunded us $300.00 for the cleaning fee. They put lights outside that had burned out during the winter. The hot tub was kept emaculate, the pontoon boat was a lot of fun and over all a good time. So here would be my owners honey-do-list.. Hire a new cleaning service., clean out the chimney, fix the hand rails on the porch, detail the kitchen, soundproof a bit, fix the creeky stairs, fix the shower head in the master suite, check into some hotwater tanks so everyone can have a shower, make a bedroom in the basement where there is the only bathroom with a hot shower and get rid of the uncomfortable futons in the room over the garage . The owners were very responsive and were greatful to be told about the issues. I am sure the next families to stay there will find everything in perfect order. .
