“Adequate”

The good: Location was excellent and in a secluded area so as to make one feel set apart from nearby neighbors; the "key access system" was excellent; not bothered by sounds from other people in the house; the grill area outside; excellent parking; received my security deposit very quickly.

The so-so: The photos of the kitchen make it look bigger than it really is -- this is a galley kitchen and very narrow; three people standing in it is way overcrowded; there were handwritten notes posted all over telling you what you should, or shouldn't do; the master bedroom has a huge bathroom while the upstairs bathroom is very tiny and not adequate for 7 or 8 people to be rotating in and out of; if you're in the queen bedroom upstairs, you have to walk through the bunk bedroom to get to it -- could be awkward; very little toilet paper to start our visit.

The bad: No paper towels as stated in amenities list; the linens in the upstairs queen bedroom had seen better days a very long time ago and so had the mattress; the sleeper sofa was very uncomfortable so we got out the inflatable mattress to use that instead but, after inflating it, found out the next a.m. that it doesn't hold any air (informed the owner of this but she had already known about it); sofa in living room on first floor was all "sat out".

We enjoy reading reviews as that always helps us improve our homes. Sometimes I wish guests would just pick up the telephone and make a call as these items are fixable. We work on our home every year to make it an enjoyable stay.. we are already at work for next year replacing our carpeting...



Paper Towels - sometimes the staff forgets to put items out.. I would have advised you where to go in the house to get the items you needed for your stay.




LInens - Each bed has 4 to 5 sets of linens.. the containers are very visible in the master bedroom and could have been changed out. Last year we threw out the linens and started over again replacing them.


Air Mattress - unfortunately a guest managed to break it a few weeks back and it was not replaced. The sofa bed will never be as comfortable as a bed.



Sofa - we selected our sofa based on the softness when you sit. Our other chairs were selected with a firm sit. We found the soft sofa to be the best way to go and the guests at the house seem to enjoy it as well.



Kitchen - we are very proud of our kitchen with new cabinets, lighting stainless steel appliances granite countertops, sinks, etc.


Bathrooms - we have upgraded both bathrooms for the comfort of our guests.. the master is huge and can handle the flow for a number of guests...



Notes: In order to make sure that our cleaning staff places towels, dishes back in the same order I like to see the house, we have a list of items in the cabinets.. the only note outside of that is in the master bathroom that states to please use the fan after you take a shower.. the ceilings are very high with 2 skylites.. if the fan is not used, the staff has to get on a ladder to wipe the walls of moisture otherwise we get mold... everyone has been following that so that there is excess cleaning.



Thank you for your feedback as any adjustments we can make to make a our vacation visits better, that is what we do.. that is why we upgraded our kitchen last year due to feedback from our guests.

While in a neighborhood, the trees around it made it seem very secluded. Saw a deer the first morning next to the patio. One thing people should be aware of is that the queen bedroom upstairs requires walking through the bunk bed room to get to the bathroom and also includes the hideabed that makes for the 9 and 10 possibilities for people staying. Could be awkward if three unrelated couples thought they were going to have separate rooms with a single queen/king bed in each. The house was very close to downtown, which was nice. We had a great time. Diver Ed and the Great Maine Lumberjack Show were highlights for the kids. Also, we arrived after dark and it was hard to figure out the lockbox with no light.
