An Event House, Not a Home Away
Submitted: December 1, 2010
Stayed: November 2010
We spent Thanksgiving week at the home. I had to buy toilet paper, light bulbs, and a sponge. The linens were threadbare, pillows flat, down comforter had no duvet, pillows on king bed did not have pillowcases. We slept on the shams! There were about five bath towels, two washcloths, two hand towels. There was no DVD player and only one television in this large home. There were few lamps, mainly overhead lighting producing a garish glow. The king bedroom had one lamp, living room-one lamp, television room-one lamp. The seating in the room with the television consisted of 4 large chairs around a round coffee table so 2 chairs had their backs to the television. In general, there was very little furniture in the house-no dressers at all. The kitchen had no toaster, no blender, no baking dishes. The flatware was thin and cheap. The dish drainer (no dishwasher) was so flimsy, 3 glasses (there were only 6) placed there to dry randomly fell off and broke. The terrace was uninviting, furniture dirty. The only cleaning supplies were dish soap and laundry detergent. We were there a week and could not clean anything. I would not recommend this home to anyone. There was no attention to detail. No welcoming sign whatsoever. I'm sad. We paid a lot of money to spend the week there.
Owner's Response: Please read all our reviews. This is the first negative one we have ever received. Our listing is accurate and the house is "charming" and "original". TVs and Toasters were not represented as a big feature in our house. We have an onsite caretaker and not once was any request made for more toiletries, linens, or supplies, all of which we keep on hand on the property. No complaints or even any requests were made to us during the stay. We work very hard to accommodate any special requests, however we are not a bed and breakfast, we do not live on site, and the experience is all about history, location, trees, and the amazing views from the house. This is not the Four Seasons, it's right down the street though. If you read our other reviews and like what you hear I don't think you will be disappointed. Just call if you have any questions. Were happy to answer them. Randy/Owner
