Nice enough but . . .
Review Submitted: 03 November 2011
Date of Stay: October 2011
Nice upscale home in a nice, quiet location. The first morning we had 3 deer feeding right under our window. The biggest issue we had was October . . . as we got there the weather turned cold. So did the house. The only heat source for the main living area is the gas fireplace which proved less than adequate. We even lit the oven a couple of times to help get warm.
I'm not sure what is customary, but we found it odd that there was literally nothing in the kitchen in the way of spices. I can't call that a negative because maybe that is normal, but we ended up going back to the store for salt and pepper.
The TV was in a cabinet and the speakers were blocked so we ended up having to turn up the volume to understand what was being said, but then it was blaring to the point of annoyance. Sigh.
All that said, it was a lovely house and the location was great -- just 1.7 miles from the lavender farm (we walked there and back and it was a perfect outing). The kitchen was very nice with modern appliances and well equipped with pots, pans and such. On a warmer week we probably would have been outside more so the TV and heat issues would be moot. If that is the case with your vacation, you will no doubt enjoy your stay. We had a relaxing time and would come back again during warmer weather and we'd bring our own spices. :o)
Owner's Response: We are so glad you thought the house was beautiful. It is not uncommom for guests to see deer and other wildlife during their stay.
The house does have electric heat in every single room and we are unclear as to why you didn't use it. Salt and Pepper is normaly a staple in the house but maybe it was in a cabnet and was overlooked. We also provide our phone number in the book on the coffee table and on the kitchen table for our guests to call if they have any questions or need assistance with anything and we only live 5 minutes away to accommodate our guests needs. We are just sorry you didn't call. We make every effort to provide a clean, comfortable house and do our best to accommodate each guest and hope you return in the future.
Thank you again for your kind comments.
