Review of R. C.'s stay in Aug 2019

starstarstarstarno star

Guest Comments: It is a great location and a nice spacious cottage. We had a couple of issues, the kitchen sink faucet leaks and needs to be replaced which the handyman says is a big job as the sink which is glued to the underside of the counter, needs to be lowered to be able to get at the faucet. Also two of the stove top elements stopped working which I believe was just a fuse that the handyman replaced. Other than that things ran smoothly.

CCR Reply: Thanks for the review! The owner will be replacing the faucet this week. So happy to hear you had a good time there.

Guest Comments: We thoroughly enjoyed our time at this cottage. There were a few minor issues which we contacted the owner about and the issues were resolved quickly. We would like to be able to book this cottage again next summer if it is available.

CCR Reply: Thank you for your review. Later this year we will receive availability from the owner for 2020 and be in touch with you.
