Our Worthley Pond Experience
Submitted: August 16, 2010
Stayed: August 2010
There was an excessive amount of trash left by the previous tenants that was rancid smelling and contained maggots. The trash was not removed until the second day of our rental so we were unable to sit outside the first night. I was told by the owner that it was very quiet on the pond. However, she did not tell me about the campground next door where kids were riding atv's and people were up late at night partying. The outside of the house was missing siding in a couple of places and the gate to the yard had a bungy cord rather than a latch.
On the positive side, the house was clean and had everything we needed. Having linens and bedding provided was very nice. The location is great, as is the outdoor deck on the water. The downstairs sunroom was a great hangout for the four teenagers we had with us. The yard was fenced in which was great for our dog. Views were beautiful and we enjoyed kayaking every day. There were loons out every day and we even saw an eagle.

Owner's Response: The previous renter did leave an excessive amount of trash, however we provide covered trash cans, and a 4'X4'X8' Rubbermaid storage container for the trash which my cleaning crew made sure all the trash was in prior to their leaving at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday.(the storage containers are in front of the home beside the garage while the outdoor space is on the side of the home on the waterfront and enclosed in a 6 foot stockade fence). We we were out of town and ran into delays, not arriving back into town until after midnight. The trash was removed from the property at 8:00 a.m. the following day.
As for issues with people staying at the campground, we leave a detailed list of instructions with each renter stating that if they have any issues they should contact us immediately. If they had issues with people staying at the campground, we were never called and therefor not given a chance to resolve the issue. In addition we rent another camp beside this one and one across the road whose beach adjoins the campground, neither of these renters had any issues with the one day delay in trash removal or excessive noise from the campers.
