Cottage was fine. Location was ok, just across from a cemetery. I would've rated the experience higher, but for the surprising disconnection of our hot water with 3 days, plus the AM we left, that remained of our 9 night stay. We did our best to follow the rule of turning the heater off when we were done and both my wife and I are pretty sure that we did, but on Thursday the cleaning people came and waha! - no hot water. I email the owner twice but received no response. No response the following day, either. I checked the breakers; nothing. Went outside to ck the heater itself (I'm an ex-general contractor) and saw that the shed door was protected with a padlock. This shut-off was clearly done on purpose.
What is so disappointing here is the attitude toward their guests that their action showed. There was nothing diplomatic in that
disconnection- no concern for their guests at all!, and especially with that lack of any further communication.
There are a few standards that exist in being a hotelier. When a stranger comes into your orbit, and you are paid to provide a room and to make that stranger comfortable, you are expected to, are obligated to, provide the comfort and security that the arrangement demands. This was not done here. There was no warning, no phone call, nothing. Their treatment of us was a disappointment.
For that simple, and rather dumb reason, we will not return or recommend their property.
