“beautiful location but filthy palce”

We selected this Cottage because of the beautiful Location but were very disappointed, when we got there. The whole place was quite filthy (dusty carpet, spider webs all over etc.) and there was mouse poo in the drawers! As we also heard mice eating their way through the walls, we left the Cottage early.

At least the owner was cooperative and gave us back part of the Money.

My wife and I take pride in providing a great experience for our guests and was quite surprised with this review. Cottage rentals rarely include towels, linens, firewood which was provided to the guest s.
These guests had brand new mattress and a brand new washroom during the stay, on the property there is a carpet steam cleaner and the carpets are regularly cleaned, I have a two year old and would never let her roll around on dirty carpets. We spent 2 days cleaning the cottage inside and out.
This being a property in the wilderness, nature does sometimes come inside, if food is left in the cottage unattended chipmunks will try to eat. it not mice, this was clearly stated in the contract.
We try to provide all the amenities that our guest would need such as Sat Tv with 200 channels, hot water, heat, bbq’s with propane, canoe / paddle boat.
Property has been booked 30 times and this was the first complaint, I guess the guests had no prior knowledge or experience what a private cottage rental is and cottage rentals are not like a hotel rooms where rooms are cleaned daily.
Guests booked for 7 people, 3 people showed up, I guess their plans changed and the cottage was too large for the small group and gave an excuse for leaving early, as stated in the contract when a guest takes the keys there are no refunds , even staying for 3 days, we provided them a refund.

Not many rentals out there that cater towards larger families, by luck I happened to stumble upon Sam's listing.

Great property, spent a week in May with my large extended family, no issues what so ever, decided to book again next May, just perfect.
