Thanks Etienne. I'm very sorry about the floor situation. As I think I told you, we are selling soon and listed it for rental at the last minute, but I hated to think of that interfering with your enjoyment of the cottage. Apologies... Also, I agree in terms of stocking the kitchen. I am in your "camp" but my parents always worry about things spoiling and making future guests sick. Thanks for your feedback and I hope you enjoyed your visit!
So glad that you enjoyed your visit! My parents were pleased to have you and sorry I wasn't able to greet you. We generally have a "no pets" policy, but one of our regular renters has a small dog she brings when she comes. Really depends on the size of the dog and behavior, but it's not out of the question.
I apologize. Your lodge is gorgeous, but, unfortunately, I was going through an extraordinarily challenging period and wish I had researched more thoroughly before I booked. Lovely place, but just not a good fit for my family, and under the circumstances--I had just booked a few days earlier--I found the strict cancellation period to be unreasonable and your lack of assistance upon our arrival to be quite challenging. The property would be perfect for many visitors, but it's really more of a stand-alone property rental than an actual lodge.
