"Not as expected, or clean or fun"
From the promotional material and photos, this looked like a charming get-away site - remote, on the coast and in this quirky area called "Point Roberts" which is in the US but you have to go through … More
I think it is evident that this traveler was was having a tough time and for that we are sorry but I think we got caught in the crossfire. Some of the telling remarks might be ...He didn't offer to refund the remaining two days, but did later only keep two of the three days we had paid.... Yes we did in fact refund the two days he booked but didn't use even though it would seem he was mostly upset about Point Roberts.
And yes it is true that we do have quaint little glass blocks in the walls (also known as windows) In fact there are 49 windows in all in the cottage. It was truly a labor of love. The centerpiece is a stained glass window that I have hung on to since 1975. The bathroom has an antique clawfoot tub and yes it has a few marks on it. (it is after all an antique). It is coupled to a very modern very fast continuous flow hot heater so everyone in your party can have a soothing bath and lose all the stress that ... well you know what I mean.
We do have semi automated confirmation system that gives a detailed email of arrival instructions and directions but of course sometimes that might not make it to arrival moment. We are working on adding more reminders for this.
We do take exception to the notion that the bed was dirty. We use high thread count pure cotton sheets and a professional service for cleaning.
We hope you will take a balanced view of this review. All of our photos very accurately portray the cottage and we only built the second cottage after seven years of rave reviews in our guest book at our other cottage.

We certainly hope you make it back—delightful people! It’s fun to meet folks from different parts of the US—our first guests from Minnesota. We are pleased that you tried the south side winery loop on the bicycles, and enjoyed those scenic early morning walk/runs through the area! As far as hospitality goes, it was rewarding for us to note the way you took in several Autumn Wine Release events, as well as made yourselves at home by utilizing the guest house/deck features to the fullest.
