Very misleading listing description
This listing description was completely misleading and incredibly inaccurate.
Instead of a "private cottage", this was one side of an owner occupied duplex with paper thin walls and in one doorway, a brown bed sheet instead of a door. We could hear the owners talking like they were in the next room because basically they were. We could even smell whatever they were cooking. The "two smart televisions" were actually a broken TV on the ground and a TV that didn't have a signal. I attempted asking the owner for help to put the football game on but she said she was busy and couldn't help. The "premium linen" were threadbare fleece sheets that didn't pass the smell test for being clean. We actually debated if we needed to wash them. We had to clean the kitchen when we first got there and scrub the fridge (and throw away gross leftover food that were left in there) before we felt comfortable unpacking our food. Of the two dogs on the property, one was aggressive and if you are not a dog person it would have been pretty scary. Instead we just gave him a wide berth and avoided going outside when he was out there. The big stone fireplace basically smoked the house out when you use it so I wouldn't recommend making a fire. The pipes ended up freezing in the upstairs bathroom so we couldn't shower or use the toilet and it was actually a blessing because then we had a legitimate reason to leave early.
We made the best of it and still had fun but there are so many better places to stay for this price that are actually clean, comfortable and private. I have had so many good experiences staying in house rentals this just was not one of them. I would not recommend staying here.
