This rental is steps away from the charming little village of Grafton. The pub at the Grafton Inn is open seven nights and serves very good food. The general store is an upscale small grocer and deli. We had a great BLT there. There are numerous outdoor activities available. As to the house, there are many shortcomings and we cannot recommend it. It was like living in somebody’s house with no room for enjoying your own space. There was though a large collection of dvds and vintage records which we did not use. There is no cell phone coverage in Grafton. When we arrived the land line phone was not working and no internet password was provided. Luckily, the person renting the apartment over the garage remembered the password. WiFi was good. We brought with us a lot of grocery items so we could use the “gourmet kitchen”.The refrigerator is not in the kitchen but in an adjacent hallway. The refig. and freezer were full of stuff leaving no room to store our goods, and it was filthy. I spent the better part of an hour cleaning it and tossing stuff. There were no empty cabinets to store our nonperishable goods. There were no hair dryers. No clocks in bedrooms. There were two bureaus in the Master Bedroom. The drawers on one were locked, as was one drawer of the second. My wife found enough drawers for her clothes in the one dresser, but I had to live out of my suitcases. Only one closet with a few hangers. The retro pants hangers do not suit today’s travelers. Floors are slippery. You need to wear footwear with good traction. Not the house slippers they provided which were covered with grass and dirt sitting on a dirty tray. We still kept our footwear clean in the home. The baths are not ensuite. The guest bedroom has a half bath near it, but to take a shower our guests had to use another bath at the far end of the house. This bath had a cracked and mended toilet seat. There was no counter surface for personal items. It was not the bath we expected to offer our guests. Ovens needed cleaning. We used the cleanest one. Couldn’t find dishes to use in the microwave. Fry pans were cast iron with caked on grease and aluminum with nonstick finishes wearing off. Baths and shower enclosure were filled with all kinds of bath products. No room for personal grooming supplies.
