Good Location but not described completely
Location is great. Right in the center of many places we wanted to go. We mainly go to Lake Champlain for the fishing and this was just right for us. We go out all day and then we come back to clean up and relax. The rental was clean and the owner that was physically there some of the time made a huge attempt to satisfy us. This being said, I will list our issues. 1. We didn't find out about the lack of parking next to the cottage until the final payment had been made. Parking was across the street and we needed to park our truck/bassboat and have access to an outlet to charge batteries. we also had to lug all our gear to the cottage. The owner made available a long extension cord which was very helpful. A 2nd owner who lives out West was rude when we initially voiced our concern. 2. Dirty rug and towel in washing machine which we washed. 3. Tankless Water Heater didn't perform well in the kitchen. Water in sink was usually cold. 4. 2 kitchen table chairs were broken. Owner said we could go to cottage next door and grab a couple. 5. Stove a. all burners smoked badly and set off smoke alarm when first used. b. oven was very dirty. c. No work space (counter) near stove. d. light over stove was not secured, was on the wall hung on a nail and fell off several times. 6. There had been a lot of rain and one day we couldn't flush the toilet or shower. Some sort of septic system issue. 7. Tried to use the heater one cool night and it set off the smoke alarm from the burning dust. We didn't attempt to use it again. 8. Had several light bulbs burn out and there were no spares. 9. There is AC in the rental but the size is really for a small room and wasn't very efficient. 10. The shade for the bathroom window didn't provide enough privacy. 11. Not enough outlets. We had to use an outdoor extension cord that we brought along in order to plug in our laptop on the kitchen table. 12. No place to hang clothes in one bedroom and in the other room there was an armoire which was pretty much being used for storage. 13. The large dock that was normally there had been damaged from a storm and was not available as it was being repaired. We are not usually this picky but from the get go there were issues.
