    a guest from Niles, MI does not recommend this vacation rental.

    It's a large older home that accommodated our large family (including the pets). I was uncomfortable though due to a strange smell. the property management checked it out the next day with no conclusion, but it was deemed safe.
    The two sofas were a bit worn and felt unclean. Some mattresses were worn and the pillows were of the institutional kind. The dishes in the cupboard were partially dirty since there is no dishwasher and the cleaning is up to the guests. The stove had grease spots on the panel from previous guests and the sink in the upstairs bathroom was clogged. In the end the house key disappeared. It could be a cute accommodation , but is definitely furnished for strangers.

    a guest from Cleveland Heights, OH recommends this vacation rental

    The weather was not too hot during our stay. Staying during hotter period could be an issue. Ceiling fans great in downstairs, but not all bedrooms had a fan. I would recommend pedestal fans in bedrooms. The front door could not be locked. Never felt unsafe, but would prefer a lockable door. It did blow open a couple of times. They were very nice to allow our greyhound to stay in house which was a big plus. Wi-Fi would be a welcome addition as well. This sounds more negative than positive, but we did have an enjoyable stay overall.

      We are glad you had an enjoyable stay and will pass on your suggestions to the owner!

    a guest from Grosseile, MI does not recommend this vacation rental.

    Overall the experience was good, but my family would like to offer the following constructive criticism.
    1. Please forewarn guests there is not AC.
    2. Please provide more pots, pans, utensils, etc. for actual cooking. Dinnerware was sufficient.
    3. Consider adding a dishwasher.
    4. Fix grill lid. It was broken when we arrived and we switched some screws to make it work but it needs a proper repair.
    5. Good location to local sites, but unfortunately it's a little noisy due to the busy road it's on.

    • Manager Responded on 7/29/2016

      We try to make sure that everyone knows everything we can about our rentals AC will always be mentioned in the amenities (if they have it and if so what kind). This home is advertised with no ac. We will check the kitchen and make any suggestions we feel the owner may need to update and if there is ever anything not working right call us we would have someone come and fix the grill within 24 hours. I hope next time we can find something that better suits your needs!
