This is the perfect get away house, with every amenity you need for a comfortable stay. The house was designed with scores of windows, to give one the feeling of bringing the outdoors in, even in bad weather.
The location and setting of this house are lovely. A quiet, idyllic stream side cabin. But, for the price charged this should be far more comfortable than the rustic cabin that it is. This is far closer to a camping experience than a home rental. It is very dirty and poorly main…
During Elizabeths stay, I communicated to her, "let me know if you have any questions" I never heard back. Instead of asking me about her issues, she told me them after her stay. The guests that followed after her had no such complaints. I had asked if they had a problem with biting bugs and they replied "they had lit a citronella candle and everything was fine" The bugs she claims are biting "fleas" are called no-see-ums. They come out around dusk and in damp weather. They are so small they can get through window screens and are seasonal, like fire flies. I would have told her to close the windows and put on some organic bug repellent, which I supply. The appliances are not old. I have a brand new Fisher Paykel stainless steel refrigerator. She complained to me about the Mr. Coffee maker. I have some vintage kitchen utensils and some new utensils. It's what I like. As for her claim of "mold" in the dish rack... mold can not and does not grow on plastic. The water source is some of the cleanest and safest in the country. It is in the NYC water shed and monitored. It does have some naturally occurring minerals which can deposit in the nooks and crannies in the sink area and discolor. The house is in the middle of the Catskill forest park and borders state land. I do not use chemicals in or around the house. I have a disclaimer in my profile for certain city people. "you may see a bug or a mouse, this is their world and we live in it" The locals have a term called "Citiots"
