The reservation was canceled 48 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I was looking for an affordable out of the way place to relax and enjoy some lazy comfort and views without having to go for a drive. Unfortunately, this place stopped at affordable and out of the way. At $31/night weekdays, it was sufficient sleeping quarters.
The house was cold, not particularly clean, and the smell of heating oil permeated the house, save the bathroom and bedroom with the doors closed.
When I arrived the house was cold and stuffy with a noticeable chemical odor. Breda opened some windows which aired out the place but made it even colder inside. I was informed that the radiant heat could only be turned on for a half hour. This made no noticeable difference (radiant heat takes hours to warm an area) so I ignored the request and left it on until the house got to a near comfortable temperature. It never happened. By 4am the heating oil had run out and the house was even colder than when I arrived. The same boiler runs the water heater so no hot water the next day. Breda refilled the oil later that day as I was out on a drive (just wasn't enjoyable to me to stay in the place). Once again with a note to only run the hear for a half hour. Same for the hot water. I honored the request and shivered until going to bed. The hot water only lasts a few hours so I guess that's only available once a day.
Recently built, the outdoor landscaping has not been completed and the back yard area looks like a construction site. The interior is mostly finished with some details left to be completed - moldings on the floor not installed, some wiring for fixtures poking out of the wall, some construction residue not yet cleaned up.
The bathroom had not been cleaned for a guest. Residuals from normal use left behind and grout dust and residue still on the walls. No outlet for a hairdryer, no place personal items/toiletries other than the floor, and no towel racks.
The kitchen was nice for the most part as it is nearly brand new. Oven and fridge worked perfectly. Stainless steel pots and a non-stick frying pan with the coating worn off is (website hidden) utensils are minimal but sufficient for light cooking. Floor had not been cleaned. Nothing major just dirt and residue from general use.
The bedroom was fresh and clean as were the towels and linens. The seemed a good quality although quite stiff and firm. 2 good pillows were provided and the comforter was warm and cozy.
The interior pictures of the house are accurate. None of the exterior pictures are of this house or taken from the property. This felt deceiving. The cute house behind the lovely stone wall and gate are not this house. The two pictures overlooking green pastures seemingly taken from an outdoor patio are not from this house.
