Cottage, or backwoods shack?

Sign on the wall as soon as you walk in said "Please remove shoes at door" and of course everyone did but soon put them back on after we walked not even to the bathroom yet and our feet were covered in dirt. The TV didn't work and we had to completely unwire it from the dish box, and outlet and reset it and plug everything back up. Took 20mins of our first hour arrived to get it it work. The fridge smelled and was horribly dirty. The bathtub was so filthy and shower curtain is covered in mold we ended up not even showering while we stayed. Nothing much went on and stayed inside most of the stay. My disabled Mother on crutches fell when she came through door due to rug not having a no slip bottom and the tiny parking place that's available for the cottage is behind the house and makes unloading and loading difficult. 2nd story bedroom staircase has loose boad at the very top last step and bends in when stepped on, Definitely not safe. All together the house was filthy, and very poor looking. Black mold in many places and had many odd closed unaccessible doors locked from the inside that made us uncomfortable

The property itself was inhabitable! The owners and staff very accommodating but the smells alone with the mildew and sewage made the stay miserable. We left one day early.

Owner's Response: The guest did not make us aware of the problem until they were leaving. Once we knew about it, we took care of it immediately, and authorized a refund for the short stay.
