Very quaint, tons of character in both the public spaces & the rooms, friendly people.my My only, very petty complaint is that I always expect a place of this quality to provide good quality shampoos & soaps, & was disappointed by the all-in-one conditioning shampoo, which left my hair a dry, tangled mess.
What it was - a well appointed space over the owners garage in a peaceful and remote location. Extremely clean and well maintained interior space. What it wasn't - a private single dwelling property with a pool attached to the "guesthouse" as the listing led me to believe. The owner lives full time on site and the pool is attached to the owner's house not the garage with quarters over it where guests stay. The main house, which is directly adjacent to the "guesthouse", is two level and looks directly over the pool. Although the owner kindly permits use of her porches on the main house we felt like we were trespassing on her space and being watched. As a result we were only comfortable going over to the pool for one hour of our entire stay. The river access is a walk down a dangerous road with cars driving way to fast and once you're there the access area is essentially to a little dock sandwiched between two properties with barking dogs. Admittedly it is listed as an easement but again, we felt like we were trespassing. Although the property lists for 6 (and a max of 8) it is really suited to 4 adults max in my opinion. There is one real bed (a queen) and a pull out couch which is in the living/dining room. There was an overall lack of privacy to the accommodations and the sense that the owner was monitoring your every move. There are a litany of rules, some expected, but some over the top (i.e: you are not permitted to open any of the 20 or so windows, even to air it out, no shoes in the house, no running of the ice maker etc.) There are also additional fees (referred to as "packages" and "add-ons" that you might normally assume you are already paying for in your rental fee) and time restrictions associated with use of the hot tub, outside fireplace etc. Be advised there are also fees for visitors, extra vehicles etc. We left feeling like we'd been walking on eggshells the entire time we were on the property we were paying to stay at and needed an entire day to filter through the contracts and lists of what we could and could not do. I do not recommend for families. Lastly I suggest researching and reading reviews of the property which detail experiences similar to ours. I neglected to do so before I booked and wish I had.
