The owner was very friendly and accessible; however, the home lost heat 4x and we need to reset the furnace as well as the home lost water service 2x needing the owner and us to reset the water service. In addition, the wifi didn't work needing to be reset. The electronics, TV's are small and outdated as is the sound system. Overall it's a cool house in a great location and on a nice property but updates are needed as the house no longer matches the photos, etc.

Owner's Response: Hi Rocco - I am very sorry about the heat re-set button - I am replacing the furnace in the next few weeks - it just started happening prior to your stay and the service tech suggested this as the best solution after your departure. No guest will have to hit the re-set button again and they will enjoy a new furnace. The wifi does work fine - just our cable service interruption requires the reset button occasionally if we have winter outages. I sincerely try to have problem free stays and respond promptly when there and fully after departure if a bigger need is recommended and the furnace will be new this month. Thank you for staying and putting up with this inconvenience. Stephen
