  • Disappointed


    The location of the house was great. Directions to the house could be given in a much simpler way. It's in a quiet and in a good location. Very nicely decorated in the living area and kitchen. However, the interior of the home was dirty! Microwave interior was dirty; microwave dish cover was dirty/food on it; cook top, oven and refrigerator were dirty; freezer had frozen water/ice on the floor of the freezer; appliance exteriors were streaked/dirty; bathroom toilet seat underneath side was dirty with evidence of "POOP"!!!! Toilet between seat and tank was dirty; toilet around floor area had not been cleaned in a long time; rugs dirty and some had hair on them which indicated they had not been vacuumed in quite a while; floors were dirty; sheets had hair on them (blonde and dark)--we changed the sheets ourselves. I had my own personal Clorox wipes which I wiped down EVERYTHING!! Don't know why it had so many reviews about the "Cleanliness" of the house. We certainly didn't find it as such.

  • Quiet rural setting


    Quiet, rural, clean, comfortable. The owner even left us some home-baked cookies - thank you. We enjoyed trying to identify the numerous plants (chicory, mullein, wild garlism etc.). There was a rabblt that evidently lives in the woods close by as he paid us several visits, and we saw deer several times. The only drawback was the dirt/gravel roads, but we managed those without any issue.

    Comfortable, quiet, clean, lovely well-kept property, good communication with owner, lot of native plants we had fun trying to identify (chicory, mullein, etc.), saw several deer and rabbits. Conveniently located for the places we wanted to visit. AND - for those who want to swim or enjoy the water, there is a community pool/park close by as well as one in Marshfield.
