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

Liked: Cleanliness
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.

4/5 Good

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.

5/5 Excellent

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.

Beautiful cottage and great golf course view even know it was winter. It’s very cozy and pretty big. 3 bedrooms, one master on the first floor and two upstairs. Nice bathrooms and a gas fireplace.
