Great location very nice people

  • 4 of 5

The house was in a nice quiet location. New harbor has lots to do and towns are quaint.

The house is well stocked with necessary items and the owners are very nice.

The house is very old and could use a very deep cleaning and some updates. A few things like new living room furniture would make a huge difference.

It is priced accordingly so I can't complain.

The pillows were ancient and stained and there were no extra blankets and the owner quickly bought us some of both which was nice. It's a nice place just hope they make some updates
