I'm sorry our tempurpedic bed did not give enough support for your girlfriends preference. Our goal is to please each guests who stays with us. For best use of space we opted for two wicker chairs for the cottage. As far as appliance noise, I assume your girlfriend is a very light sleeper since this is the first time anyone has mentioned this as a concern. The light is turned on to aide our guests walking up the stairs when arriving after dark. It's generally turned off after arrival. I would have immediately turned it off if you had utilized the phone number/text left in the room in the event a guest needs assistance during their stay with us. :( Thank you for taking the time to voice your concerns.
