Father's Day Weekend
We had a great time! We feel like we left the house in good shape, per the instructions in your white book. There were no hand/dish towels in the kitchen for drying, etc. Otherwise, everything was in order! Thanks for all, have a good summer! The use of your house made for a great Father's Day/Birthday/Anniversary celebration!

Old and poorly maintained - will not rent again
Old and poorly maintained - will not rent again
We were very disappointed with the condition of our rental. Upon arrival at the White House & Cottage, we discovered several items in need of repair: - A broken outlet cover in the kitchen showing exposed electrical wiring, right at eye level for children. - Three separate wood banister post heads on the decks that were not attached to the banister and fell off when touched. - The kitchen and bathroom trash cans were cracked or broken. - Shelf in the refrigerator door was missing, limiting the space that could be used. - Upstairs toilet flushed so slowly that it clogged constantly. - A step on the cottage deck stairs was not nailed down and the step slipped when stepped on. - One of the upstairs bedroom door knobs stuck and was very difficult to open. During our stay, it jammed shut and we were not able to get into the room for several hours until the rental company came and fixed it. - One of the queen bed frames was missing screws so it squeaked constantly, making it hard to sleep. We eventually just moved the mattress to the floor. - Several window screens were missing, making it impossible to open some of the windows without bugs coming in. - Several light bulbs were burnt out. - There were no washcloths provided in the downstairs bathroom and many of the towels were old and frayed. - The glassware provided was limited, with only four wine glasses for a house that sleeps 12. - Several of the slats in the horizontal blinds were bent or missing. We contacted the rental management company regarding these issues and they did not seem to understand why we were not happy. Kept saying they had never received negative feedback before. They fixed a couple items but that did not change the fact that the condition of the house did not meet the expectations laid out on the website. Overall, the house looks run down and is poorly maintained. We asked for a refund of part of our rental cost and were told that they would ask the owners. However, we never heard back on this. We will not be renting again. If future renters are looking for a house that is maintained as a “premier property” as the website states, we recommend selecting another location.
