Good and Bad
When we arrived to the cottage I was thrilled at our choice to stay there! It was the cutest little place and everything was decorated so well! I couldn't stop taking pictures of it! My husband quickly found his comfy spot on the porch bed! The cottage has everything you need from utensils to toiletries. We used the grill both nights and that was a bonus! The fireplace was cozy and the river out back added a perfect touch! As much as I loved this little place there are a few negatives that I think people should know before booking. The water has a cloudy/soapy look to it. I contacted the owner and she said it had been tested and is perfectly fine. Next, there is dog hair everywhere. I had a big problem with that! Smudges on the long bathroom mirror (dog level) maybe from a dog's wet nose or something. Not sure why it wasn't cleaned along with hair on couch and floor. The back porch had a smell of dog pee every now and then with a breeze. I'm thinking maybe the dog peed on one of the blankets on chair. I don't know. The dresser already had the owners clothes in it so there was no room to put our things and we had to use our bags the whole time. Then, the worst of our stay was the bed. It is way too high and hard to get in and out of. It is also very hard and uncomfortable. I left with a terrible backache. I hate to leave anything negative about this place, but I wish I would have known before booking. The owner is super nice and again this cottage is the adorable! However, the bed and dog hair is the main reason we will not be returning.
