“Filthy”
Reviewed 17 September 2013 for a stay in September 2013

I just stayed here with friends and we were very disappointed upon arriving and throughout our stay with how filthy and funky the Cabernet Cottage is. We were expecting rustic and could easily accept the old, funky furniture and worn wood, but not the layers of dust, spider webs and scunge. The bedroom ceiling was covered in dusty spider webs and the floors had not been cleaned in a very long time. Bundles of hair and dust covered the floor around the bed and it was just overall, gritty. We moved the bed away from the wall as there were webs attached to it and found years worth of dust and hair from previous guests and a breast milk pad. The living room wasn't much different. Let's put it this way; it's the kind of place you don't want to go barefoot in. The kitchen was scungy with grease still on the stove and dishes that were not cleaned properly...and oddly enough, the "Cabernet" Cottage was void of wine glasses, outside of a couple cloudy, unmatched ones hanging in the window area. Then we went to use the barbecue and it still had grease and food in it from whoever used it last. And forget using it at night unless you have a flashlight because there's no good outside light...we took a lamp outside so we could cook our lobsters. Then the water heater didn't work right, making showers a pain with the water fluctuating from scalding hot to cold. Overall, the place was filthy and funky, with the good part being the deck overlooking the river and the kayaks for the river.

This is such an odd review. The furniture is almost all new in the last few years. We are sorry about the cleaning; that cleaner has been dismissed for this and other complaints. However, there are not years of dust in any of our homes. Spiderwebs are a hazard of this forested area. We clean them up and more come, sometimes within minutes. We'll speak to owner about the outside lighting, after we verify that the lighting is inadequate. -Rachel

It's always nice to be able to take your pet on vacation with you and not worry about anything but having a nice and relaxing time. We pride ourselves in being pet friendly and, with most of us here having dogs, we understand the importance of having your favorite friend with you. We hope to see you again soon.

Cabernet Cottage is a cabin in the woods after all. It's a great little hideaway and, like you said, on the river and close to town. The woodwork inside the cottage is stunning but you have to like that sort of rustic feel and look. We hope you enjoyed your overall stay and will come back again!

Perhaps very small children would have a problem (although mine would have been fine), but it's a typical local path down and across river frontage. Just a note on the beach: It's privately owned except at near waterline, so please stay down off the sand, near the water's edge. We'll check out the furniture and repair whatever needs repair. -Rachel, general manager
