  • Annual vacay with high school friends


    Property was nice, everyone liked the size and location, however there were small things that need fixing.

    Chair in small bedroom wicker chair upstairs a had indentation which, blind in upstairs bathroom is broke on the bottom, one of the lights by the parking pad is broke, and the stove hood has a piece drooping. I sent picts to our contact thru a text but did not hear back. Also there is a light bulb out on the stove hood and upstairs bathroom.

    We loved the fire Pitt and wood supply.

  • Terrific stay!


    This historic home is charming and cozy. Big bonus, that it is a couple blocks from town and all the towns amenities. We loved going to the fort, Heritage Village, both lighthouses and the beach. One of my favorite stays!

    Hi Pritisundar, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We truly appreciate your feedback. We'd like to address the concerns you raised and share some insights from the homeowner's perspective:
    -"Firstly, we'd like to express our apologies that your experience did not meet your expectations entirely. We understand the importance of a satisfying stay. It's crucial to note that the home is accurately advertised without air conditioning or a dishwasher, and the room sizes are clearly depicted in the pictures. The furniture, while new in 2023, is designed in an antique style that complements the 125-year-old character of the home.
    -To keep things extra comfortable during this unusually hot year, we've gone ahead and added three box fans. Your comfort is important to us!
    -We take pride in our professional and thorough cleaning staff, and the feedback from our other reviews attests to their competence.
    -Rest assured, all the games that are advertised are indeed available on-site, and we've even got a few additional ones that are not highlighted.
    -Regarding the doorknobs, they are all in place and functional, with one requiring a specific turning direction, which might not be immediately evident.
    -We understand that wooden floors can creak, particularly in humid conditions, which we've experienced lately. We are genuinely sorry that your experience fell short of expectations, and we sincerely hope it didn't overshadow your vacation.
    We hope that these explanations provide some clarity, please know that it is our sincere desire to provide a welcoming and enjoyable experience for our guests."
