      Not a cottage... it’s a basement in someone’s home!

      I was under the impression we would be staying in a private cottage for our family vacation. The listing said very private, but it was far from that. It was very uncomfortable. The cottage is rented out long term and they share the pool, although we didn’t see them. The homeowners were very nice, but it’s a weird feeling to be using someone’s pool and they are or can watch you from the house. It feels like being babysat. There are rules that aren’t given to you upfront. It’s not until you get there that you learn of them. The shower was very old and the handles and tiles were grimy. There was a huge clump of hair in the drain, bugs, and hair on the floor. I don’t think there is someone really cleaning like they should be when charging for it. The couch was also stained and that’s the only place to watch tv. I had to put towels to sit. None of the rooms have a tv. There are no curtains on the doors to enter the basement. At night it’s uncomfortable to be sitting or sleeping and someone could come look in. You have to walk down a steep hill and there is not a close entrance. We had to make probably 15 trips to get all of our stuff. Wasn’t expecting that. I have a baby and feel very unsafe going up and down the hill with her. This was the complete opposite of private!! We actually had to go stay the night other places bc we didn’t feel comfortable. This place is not what they are advertising!! I hate to write a bad review, but our vacation was not what we though it was going to be. It wasn’t fun. I don’t want someone else to have the same experience. Some people may not mind, but if you are looking for a private stay somewhere, this is not the place!! In the 15 years of renting vacation homes I have never experienced anything like this. Ask many questions before booking. Listing is deceiving!


        Would not stay again

        It's a basement not a cottage. Walk to property is not very safe. There is a very steep hill and steps cannot be used because they are unfinished. When you enter the property, it appears nice until you look more in depth. You find out that it definitely should not be listed as sleeps 8. The pull out couch is not a bed at all. There is no bedding( mattress, blankets, sheets pillows ect.) and it appears to just be for a foot rest and it is a bit stained. The other supposed bed is to mattress pads on top of a bed frame. No complaints about the bedrooms. They were fine. The kitchen appeared fine as well. The bathroom appears to be clean except for the shower. The faucets are extremely grimey. There is a large build up of green, black, and white flakes on all of the shower hardware and the shower floor is brown. I brought this to the attention to the owner to give her a chance to fix this. She didn't reply for 2 hours. I sent here a third message just in case the first wasn't recieved. Then after 3 hours she comes down. When she finally came down, I took her to the restroom to show her my concern. She said it's just because its drawn on well water and I should do research on it because its probably my first experience with well water. She assumed. It's not my first experience with well water at all. I have used several well water showers and not even the community showers in my high school which was drawn off of well water have ever looked like this. They were cleaned properly and hundreds of kids used these showers. But I digress, lastly there was the fact we didn't have a useable trashcan in the basement. Her house rules state you must use the trashcan at the front of the house so you must walk up the unsafe steep hill to through away any garbage you have at the front of the house. And you must ask for garbage bags because they were not provided automatically. The positives I can say were the pool is really nice, and the fire pit and grill are nice amenities but us must provide your own propane to use it. I cannot comment on how it was actually operated I didn't utilize these. But they looked good. It's also a private location but you will not be completely alone. The owner still has guests over and other people were using the pool as well during our stay. Nice people though. I also got to see a couple deer. Common to see on the property. Tried to be fair but honest in this review.

        5/5 Excellent

          Great weekend getaway

          We enjoyed ourselves in this basement hideaway. The pool was amazing, kitchen was well stocked to cook, and the space was very spacious. The homeowner was very polite and helpful as well!

          5/5 Excellent

            5 day stay while visiting family

            Easy process, nice space for 4 adults and a baby.


              Not up to your standards

              Need directions to work the tv. Mattresses are terrible. Hair dryer only works on low. Need dresser in 2nd bedroom Need handicap bar in bathroom.
