Loved Little House By The Sea BUT
Loved the charm, its old & rough: not a problem. Bathroom updated, Central Air etc,,,, Location is wonderful , especially considering the nice fenced dog yard. Great frt porch, the tiny old kitchen had what you need, The beds were very good & full size washer & dryer. Didn't smell any previous visitors. Only real problem is the living room furniture. It is all over sized, big old wooden framed pieces of "side of the road furniture. " One big couch cushions sank almost to the floor , very hard to get out of.; the other, covered by a thick quilt (?)was so hard & uncomfortable we couldnt sit on it. The only decent chairs were two dining room table captains chairs. The dining room table w/benches is way too large(10 ) for this little place. I stacked the dining table benches on top of each other just for some room. We brought in our beach chairs to watch tv on that little 30 inch tv,; the cushions on the outside furniture were so old we had to double them & cover with beach towels. The fact remains, its a great location & cottage, just some halfway decent living room furniture & new outside cushions would make all the difference. We're older & comfort may mean more to us, but that horrible LR furniture is a deal breaker . We'd go back in a minute if they just took the time to set up LRoom for comfort. I really hate the neg part of review, but its true. So we loved the cottage, but won't return w/out some furniture change.
