We rented 4 cottages for a week at the Clinton Inn. Upon arrival (at check in time) 2 out of the 4 cabins were available. We were told by the owner they would bring us 2 sets of keys when the cabins were available. We helped unpack the other family members while waiting for the final 2 cabins to be cleaned. We learned the delay was 2 employees had quit in the middle of the day. Once the cabins were ready the very friendly employees advised us it was ok to enter the cabin. We realized that the refridge in 1 cabin was not working and advised the office & we got a rude response from the owner Fred about why we entered the cabin as they were never notified they were ready and never brought us the keys (2 hours after check in). 2 workers came and agreed the refridge wasn't working however needed to call the owner Fred. Fred came to the cabin and before even looking at it advised it must be working because someone was previously in the cabin. Once he looked at it he decided it wasn't working because there was "to much food in it." He finally agreed it wasn't running at all and had it replaced. The next day we went to the office and asked a very nice employee about using the dock at the beach for a few minutes to load/unload passengers if we rented a boat for the day. He indicated we needed to speak with the owner Fred however felt it would be no problem. Later that evening Fred came to our cabin where the extended family was sitting outside and asked if we were the ones inquiring about using the dock. When we responded yes he quickly responded "absolutely not" then my husband asked if it was open for discussion and he rudely responded "If you bring a boat to my dock I will kick you off the property." We rented the boat and brought it in close to shore without using his dock. and fortuntately never saw or spoke to him the remander of our week. The resturant/store was rarely open, the pool was not heated and very cold and the access to the small beach area was so steep some members of our party never saw it as cars were not allowed to drive down and park (althought there was a huge parking lot for the owner) near the beach. Not a place we would return to for lots of reasons but mainly the rude owner Fred!
