Why Douglas D Masters chose Dayton
This property is not to far from the airport and only 5 minutes to downtown.It is unique because it is very close to spectacular gardens, river, and a nature park. In the winter months you must check out the plays and musicals at the Dayton Playhouse. In the gardens, close to the house, you will find a beautiful rose garden and nature walks. The Deweese park is within walking distance and has the stillwater river for your pleasure. The boonshaft museum is very close too!!! You will enjoy the house and the surroundings!

Great place to stay with limited funds...
As a single person staying here it was sufficient for my needs. For a family this property needs some improvements. TV trays, card table and chairs, etc.
I always want to rate someone high and give the best experience possible to my guests. John was an exception. He had univited guests and did not tell me they were staying. He had no communication. His comments to me was that his last stay had an ocean view. He should not of compared a small home that recieved a 5 star rating the previous week to his grading. When he left, he said that he wanted tv trays for his guest. He never asked me about it. There were chairs for the table and nice wooden tv trays in the closet. John is the result of not following the rules and having guests that wanted additional seating. If he would of been considerate it would of been a much better stay. His arrogance and lack of respect made the stay miserable for the host.
Nice Get away!
Great Host! Goes up and beyond to make your stay pleasurable! The street can be active at certain parts of the day but you really can't hear from the inside of the house. Close to a Nice park and 5 minutes from Walmart and other nice restaurants in the event that you don't feel like cooking.
Nice small home near a riverside park
This is, overall, a nice property with hardwood floors, a comfortable living room & convenient parking in the driveway or garage. The owner, Doug, is very nice and lives right next door. He was there to meet us when we arrived.
Just a couple odd things, though...even though there’s a dining room table in the dining area, there are no dining chairs, and there’s nowhere to sit in the kitchen, either.
We’d stay here again!
Thanks for the feedback. I really appreciate it! I always strive for perfection and always ask my guests if they need Anything. In regards to the table in the dining room. The table is an antique drop leaf oak table that folds out. There are folding chairs in the closet. The dining room small and it worked out, not to have it open all the time. There are also wooden trays for the guests convenience. Most of the guests have been eating at the couch or outside on the bistro table and chairs. I am taking your consideration and will be adding a bistro and chairs to the kitchen. Thanks for the suggestion! Just wish you would of said something during your stay. I fix every need! :)
Overall experience was nice. Just a little incident! Nothing detrimental
Comfortable place to stay
The house was very homey and comfortable and a great price for the duration of our stay. Douglas was very hospitable and made sure we had everything we needed.
I would love to know why I did not get a five star...
I went above and beyond for these two. They are a nice young couple in their honeymoon,
There was even a box of chocolates from a local chocolate company and a bottle of champagne for them.
It was understandable there was no communication from the guests. I sent them texts with no response. It would of been nice to have received a thank you.
I gave them slack on the communication and wanted their stay to be perfect. His response at the end was that it worked out wonderfully. I rated them a 5 stars and in reality it should of been less.
I am disappointing in Benjamin's rating without any reason to be less than a 5 star.
Doug is a very accommodating host, easy to reach and was very fast to respond to any issues that came up during our stay. Thank you for sharing your home with us!
It was a pleasure to have you stay. Hope to see you again in the Spring!!!
