Response from Wylie:

Jeff, I completely agree, potential guests should most definitely read the description of the cottage before booking, I make that very clear on my page as well, that the cottage is not for everyone and that it is important (for all of us) that it is the right fit. I clearly note on my page that the location of the house is nestled in between two busy roads which, depending on the time of day, can be rather noisy. This is not the country, but the outskirts of downtown Ithaca, even though the garden setting makes it appear as though we are in the country. However, my cottage is not priced the same as local hotels, which are upwards of $100 at the very lowest end. My cottage is priced similar to a motel. If what you are looking for is a motel, you should by all means book one - there are plenty of options. If, on the other hand, what you are looking for is unique and authentic experience in a beautifully-restored, yet definitely quirky (American folk!) 2-story cottage from the 1830s, situated on one-acre of landscaped garden with views of the lake from every room on the property, then you will love it here, as my 300 + positive reviews can attest to.

Response from Wylie:

Hi Brad, I'm very sorry your stay did not meet your expectations, as I try my best to make the experience as comfortable for all of my guests as possible. I can assure you the cottage is very clean, and was professionally cleaned the day you arrived. I know that sometimes people equate 'rustic' with dirty, but as you can see from my 300+ positive reviews, the space is in face clean, comfortable, and exactly as advertised - as long as one is willing to take the time to actually read the description of the space on my AirBnb page, and look at my pictures in advance of booking.
