Mouse feces in our bed! Owner was not helpful in resolving issue.
My girlfriend and I came here for a relaxing getaway. As we were getting ready for bed, we noticed there were mouse feces in the bed, and under the pillows. It was late at night (and we were 4 hours away from home) so there wasn't much we could do except for sleep on the couch. I made James, the owner, aware of the situation and sent him pictures of the mouse feces, yet he was not willing to work with us in resolving the issue . He did apologize and I told him I appreciated him apologizing, but that an apology doesn't change the unpleasant experience we had. I asked James for a refund. He informed me that the committee would not approve a refund because we spent the night, and he also had information that we had slept in a bed. (Was he watching us or have cameras in the house?) James then proceeded to accuse me of lying and trying to scam him, when I very clearly sent him pictures of the feces in the bed. James has not taken any other steps to try and rectify the situation. I would not recommend this place to anyone unless it came under new management. I can't believe how rude James was and his lack of customer service and overall attitude towards a customer. Avoid this place at all costs and take your money and business elsewhere.
We are very sorry this happened. Our cottage is kept very clean. We have changed our housekeeping procedures, adding mouse traps, adding mice prevention, and we have had the builder to help close any and all places a mouse can get in. We do not want this to happen to anyone else.
It was unfortunate we could not work anything out to satisfy this disgruntled renter. We did not get informed of the situation when it occurred so we could not resolve it during his stay.
Quiet, clean, and plenty of solitude
The property is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by farmland and woods, which was fantastic for anyone looking for solitude and quiet. The house was spic n span clean. We had a nice fire out by the driveway. All of our cooking and coffee needs were met with supplies on hand. Had a great stay and would highly recommend to anyone who's looking for any of the above.
Beautiful home, very secluded with abundance of wildlife. Will be back again. Thank you
My wife and I stayed to get away from life for a while and celebrate our anniversary. It's very secluded, but not hard to find. We loved the abundance of windows and "glass for walls" as my wife kept saying, during the day. But it was a little spooky at night. Fortunately there are curtains in the bedrooms. We weren't able to get reservations for dinner at the nearby Inn, but we planned ahead and brought snacks and some wine. The hosts were helpful and very responsive whenever we messaged them with questions. If you're looking to truly get away from it all, but stay in complete comfort and luxury this is the place!
Need to cut weeds
Thanks for the feedback. We are in the first year of making the meadow an Ohio native prairie. We mow this area just once a year. We will keep the edges mowed through out the year in the future. Thank you!
A hidden treasure
Such a unique place nestled in the woods. Worth visiting just for the design itself.
