Other Things to Note
Dogs and cats are welcome, provided they will not damage the property. Guest staying longer than three days will be asked to pay gas and electric costs prorated for the length of their stay and based on meter readings. This encourages avoiding wastefulness and is not profit-oriented..
No smoking in the home, please. You may smoke on the back porch.
The location is perfect, and the house simply but nicely appointed. We initially had a few small issues and were unable to contact the host either during or after our stay. Nonetheless, it was a great location and a nice trip. Thank you!
Host did a great job of communicating information. The house was immaculate and the beds were SO comfortable. The location was so close to great hiking trails and since we had amazing weather we had some good hikes. House is well furnished with everything that you could need!
We had a wonderful stay! The host was very thorough providing information before our stay and emailing during our stay! The home was just as described, very clean and the perfect accomodation for our trip to Peninsula and a wedding at the lodge. The leaves were spectacular, and although we were within minutes of hiking trails, biking trails, restaurants and the train, it was a peaceful and relaxing setting. We hope to return in the spring.
My family and I stayed for a month at the Thiel's home in Peninsula. It is a lovely home in beautiful surroundings. We were very comfortable and felt very at home there. We could tell that it is important to the owners that their guests are satisfied. We would stay here again.
Beautiful house, spotless, beautifully furnished, wonderful screened porch, all as shown on website. Quiet lovely wooded location. Perfect for family reunion. Fritz and Barbara were friendly and thoughtful hosts -- accommodating all requests.
Fritz and Barbara have provided me and my family with a wonderful home for our summer stay in NE Ohio. The home is equipped with every convenience we needed from kitchen gadgets to quality linens. The home was clean and exceptionally well maintained when we arrived. The furniture is new and high quality and the house is decorated appropriately and comfortably. This AirBnB experience has been our best so far.
The home was clean and exactly as presented. We enjoyed the stay. Fritz was most cordial and a pleasure to deal with. He was responsive to communication before and during our trip. We highly recommend his home without reservation.
