About Melissa F.

Our family has enjoyed many years in the home and we want whoever rents our home to be able to enjoy the island life as well. As you can see from the property photo it was decorated for our daughter's 2nd birthday. We have had many great times in this house and made many wonderful memories and we know you will too!

A horrible experience in a stinky, dirty glorified shack.

  • 1 of 5

I hate to have to say it but staying here was a pretty horrible experience. Based on what I've heard from others, staying in Put-In-Bay is rarely a luxurious experience. Still, there should be a basic expectation of cleanliness from a rental - and this place definitely does not hit that mark. In fact, it misses it by a long-shot. We paid a pretty good amount of money to stay for two days. The place was so gross that we had serious discussion of just picking up and leaving (and losing our money) after the first night. There was mouse feces EVERYWHERE. Mouse feces in the cabinets. Mouse feces in the pots and pans. Mouse feces in the silverware drawer. Needless to say, even though we brought food, we were not able to cook AT ALL. Hell, even after washing a glass or two you had to be REALLY thirsty to chance a drink out of them. The final insult? When we stripped the bed when we were leaving we found mouse feces UNDER THE SHEETS. Not only were be sleeping on mouse crap but , amazingly, whoever made the bed for us prior to our arrival (the owners? a cleaning company?) didn't even bother to brush the mouse crap off the bed and onto the floor before putting the sheets on. Gross!

In addition, the house smells like a musty basement. When you open the drapes you find huge green globules of stinky, gross mold in the tracks of the windows. One of the two showers is useless (it was mentioned in an earlier review, I suppose the owners just don't care to fix it). The house is generally in a declining state of disrepair - broken windows that need to be closed from outside, etc. There is no heat in some rooms (we stayed in late October - it was cold). The room without the heat has a vent in the ceiling that goes directly outside letting cold and bugs into the room (there were even LEAVES falling through from the roof directly into the room!). I could go on and on...

The lease is worded in just such a way so that you can't really complain about anything. If I had thought there was any chance of getting out of one day's payment I would have left and rented another available place immediately. Even then, we SERIOUSLY thought about just taking the loss and getting another place. However, we stuck it out and got out as early as possible on the last day.

I hate to write such a scathing review because the owner seems nice enough but this place is a dump and I would not advise anyone to stay here. The place is for sale so maybe the owners just don't care

Owner's Response: We are so sorry that you were disappointed in our home. Your feedback is very important to us. We provide our personal cell phone number in the rental instructions and all of our guests can call or text me at any point during their stay. Per the rental instructions, our guests should contact us and let us know within the first hour of being in the home if something isn't right. This gives us the chance to fix or work on any issues that we possibly can to make the stay more enjoyable. We have always worked with groups and have been more than accommodating either during their stay or afterwards. Unfortunately, we never heard from you during your stay and could not address your concerns or even help get you into other accommodations available that weekend on the island. I would like to say that over the course of the season we had issues with our cleaning company and that has been addressed for the upcoming 2017 season. We have never had such an issue with the field mice on the island in the home before, but will be sure that this never happens again. My family acknowledges that our cottage is older. However, the updated open concept, large back deck/yard and fire pit make it a great place to stay and a home we loved for many, many years. We will take your feedback and work hard to get the cottage in great shape for the 2017 season.

Awesome stay can't wait to come back!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay here was everything we hoped for in a Put In Bay getaway and then so much more! In addition to being spacious and accommodating for a larger group, the house was incredibly clean and well kept. With the convenience of all that was supplied- from bedding and bath towels to kitchen supplies, we really did not even need to leave the house! Although when we did the location was nice and close to downtown, yet located on a quiet street perfect for a relaxing afternoon. We all can't wait to come for another stay.

We were very pleased with out stay. The house is not far from the ferry or town. The back deck was nice and the owners were easy to contact and work with. The house was as advertised! We would stay again.

Quaint Home On a Great Island

  • 5 of 5

This was my first trip to Put-in Bay and our group had a fantastic experience. Melissa was so responsive with messaging us and organizing our trip, especially given the fact that we booked our night about 24 hours before we got to the island.

The whole experience was smooth. Melissa's instructions were clear and easy to follow and she event greeted us with a nice note and bottle of wine to welcome our group. As mentioned in a previous comment, the TV had been replaced with a new flat screen for the visitors, although there is so much to do on the island, I cannot imagine watching much tv here.

This place was everything we needed and couldn't have been happier about our stay!
