Owner's Response: We did not have a family reunion before he came. The cottage was rented the week before to a very nice family who loved the spot. We always clean in between tenants and everyone leaves our place in good order. This time we cleaned as usual but there was a lapse of 4 days before he arrived so yes cob webs do happen in cottages in Maine sometimes over night so there may have been one or two. But the camp was not dusty and moldy. It was also a very hot week and we have an air conditioner and 6 fans and he bought another fan and left it there as he said we didn’t have enough fans. We have an outside propane cooker with a large lobster pot right next to it, but he chose to buy a new lobster pot and again left it. After he left he complained that the kitchen was dark and he was right because he didn’t notice that there were under the counter lights that are turned on by a wall switch. If he had called us with this complaint we could have told him where to turn on the lights. Instead he bought a light and rigged it over the kitchen sink and again left it there. The bathroom was cleaned before he came and was not moldy and my husband had just put a new shower curtain liner in before he got there. He left coffee in the coffee pot, dirty dishes in the sink and there was dog hair every where. I spent a lot of time vacuuming up dog hair from the rugs. We don’t charge for cleaning but I wished we had this time. The dog also pushed out the screen in the front door and chewed on the molding. We told him if he had any problems to call us and we could come quickly as we are only ½ an hour away but he only called with complaints after he had left.
