Cozy small condo with pretty views.
This is not a first time for my family to stay at Georgetown during winter. We found the condo advertised for 5 persons but, as the owner pointed out later, it's rather appropriate for 2 adults and 2 children if they can be trusted with the steep staircase. I was charged extra for the 5th person but credited later as only four of us stayed there. The water tank provides enough water for about 3 regular showers and then it takes about an hour to heat up again. It takes some planning for the bathroom to work for more than 3 people. Kitchen is small with old refrigerator, newer stove/oven and microwave. Very few pots and no storage containers to speak of are available. The element inside the fridge was covered with thick block of ice and our food froze during the first night. There's very little counter space in the kitchen and the floor is covered with carpet which is not ideal. In a rush I put a hot oven shelf on the kitchen floor as there's really nowhere to put it except for bathtub. It cost me entire damage deposit because, I was told, the carpet had to be replaced in the entire kitchen (and that's a small area). If you like to cook, you may want to consider some other place. The inside of the condo is in good repair and has adequate furnishings. The wood stove is not working . There's plenty of good bedding available. Carpets needed cleaning. The air inside during the winter is very dry and we had suffered sore throats until I bought humidifiers for the bedrooms as the owner felt this was superfluous as well as a hair dryer. I have lived in Alberta, Canada for a long time and I know about indoor and outdoor air in frosty weather. I would recommend that the owner considers this a standard not a luxury and equips the condo with such necessities as other owners do. The laundromat was out of service when I took my laundry there and the owner sent me to the next little town which meant that I spent my evening hours (3 + hours) driving at night and babysitting my load of laundry. With wintry weather, the stairs and walkways are treacherous and on weekends the traffic can back up with cars slipping up the hill to get out of the complex. The owner is responsive via text/phone.
