Nice overall, but…
Overall the place was pretty nice with a friendly staff & a nice view. Nice wood flooring throughout the cottage. However the floors were very sticky and slippery at the same time throughout the entire cottage… even the bathrooms. Was like whoever washed the floor just dumped the soap all over and didn’t bother to rinse it off. Shoes socks everything sticky and kinda gross. Could be dangerous as well because it was very slick in some areas where soap was so thick. Also, the TV was on its last leg. Very small and the speakers were going. One minute there would be sound then it would be out on and off. The smaller cottages are far from hotel making it inconvenient to drive over to go use the amenities such as the fitness center.

The location is excellent. The cottages are well appointed. Rooms are small and cozy. The kitchen needs better cutlery and the pans need replacement.

Thought the property needs updating. Windows did not open properly. Doors creaked. Based on neighboring hotel, Inn of Bay Harbor, I expected higher quality construction of these units.

Nice place for our sister "get-away". But frustrating communication.
I emailed questions the very day of booking and several times after. NEVER received a reply from the property owner. After several phone calls to VRBO, I was at least assured the the reservation WAS on file. However, when I booked it said breakfast WAS included but never broke it out on the receipt. (BUT did charge us for it ). When I checked in, I was told we did get to come to the INN for breakfast. We did the first morning - then got a BILL. I went to the desk and they gave us vouchers to cover and said Expedia did not pay them for our breakfast. So the cottage was fine - but the overall experience was very stressful! Never hearing back from all my email communication was the worst. On one conversation with VRBO I asked if the property owner was even getting the correspondence - she said the email was "noreply" - you need to get that straightened out.

I loved the cozy feel of the cottage. My kids also loved the ping pong table in the basement. The only thing I noticed is that the cottage could use some painting inside and outside.

What happened to housekeeping?
Stayed here for two nights. I’m certain our stay may have been a little more relaxing and comfortable if the housekeeping staff would have cleaned. I was tired when we arrived to a refrigerator with food spilled in it. Crumbs in the drawers, coffee table, end table and dining table were sticky with food spills and food particles. None of the 3 bathrooms were swept & cleaned, rugs were dirty not vacuumed. Stove top & microwave had food and hand smears all over the front of it. Crushed Doritos’ and spaghetti noodles on kitchen floor. The King bed mattress was pulled away from the headboard only to expose an eyesore of filth. We thought someone was playing a joke on us at first only to realize it was not a joke. Not sure what happened to housekeeping as the only sign of their presence was a fresh roll of toilet paper and linens. I tried to message the owner using the app, but they never did reply. When I checked out, I reported it to the front desk and hopefully they will look into it and see what happened. That said, I would return if I knew for sure it was cleaned.

The cottages have great amenities and very comfortable. The rooms were not very clean and did not even appear to have been vacuumed. We found chips under the couch from a previous guest.
