Location and neighborhood were good.
Property is not upgraded. Floors were squeaky, windows were painted shut, the front door hinge was suspect, the TV code was never found. The property needs some work.
As expected of an old house. Good location. Lots of room except in the very tiny 3rd floor bathroom. Access information not provided in its entirety until about 6 hours prior to check-in and then by email. Fortunately, I could access my email by phone, but that's not true for many of my vintage.
Owner did respond nicely to a list of small problems I provided her.
Not all that was advertised
The positives....the beds were comfortable, the appliances all worked. The negatives....the lawn was unmowed, even after telling Megan of the issue. The grass had gone to seed - it had been so long neglected. There was broken glass and sharp metal in the grass as well. Not safe for our grandchildren to play in. The third story bedrooms were very hot with days in the 80's. The windows could not be opened to help cool down at night. The third floor toilet is 6 inches from the wall! Very poor design plan and unusable for most of our family! The second floor bathroom shower leaked out the window and down onto the sidewalk below. The sink leaked onto the floor. The floors and stairs throughout the house were very uneven! The outlets around the dining room table did not work. The "full pantry" consisted of salt and pepper. And then there were the ants. We were told that they had sprayed for ants a week before our arrival. Someone was sent out to take care of the ants we found but since none were seen at the time he was there, he did nothing...no ant traps our anything! The ants were in the kitchen and the living room each of the five days we were there even though we tried to keep all food stored away.
Clean, comfortable beds
Great host, clean, comfortable beds!
Great for large group
House was great and perfect for our needs. There was plenty of room and mostly well appointed. The front steps are a bit of a challenge but manageable. Water in main bath was difficult to maneuver but once you got the right setting, hot showers were aplenty. Beds and linens were quite comfy. There were no kitchen towels, hot pads or dishrags/sponges in the kitchen area which would be an appropriate addition.
House with Character
4 women stayed in this house in December 2018. All in all it was a positive experience, but here are the positives and negatives:
Positives: The heat was on for us when we arrived, which was nice with the winter weather. A bottle of wine was waiting for us, a nice touch. The house is older with a lot of character. Bathrooms were clean. The house was fairly clean. Kitchen was well stocked with utensils and dishware. Beds were comfortable and there were plenty of bath towels and wash cloths. We were close to Crown Plaza, which is what we were looking for. The neighborhood was safe.
Negatives: Keeping in mind the house is very old - The floors were a little uneven as you transitioned from one room to another, so you had to watch your step. The tub/shower in the main bathroom on the 2nd floor needs to be updated, but still was useable. As stated above, the house was fairly clean, just don't look too close in the corners! Inside the kitchen cupboards could use a good cleaning, and there were no dish towels or dishcloths. Another outside railing is needed if you come up the steps from the side of the house.
Having stated all this, we would probably stay here again.
