Blue Oars: Quaint Lake Cottage with a Gorgeous View!
average rating of 3.0 based on 1 reviews

Beautiful location, but in need of cleaning

  • 3 of 5

I'm not typically a picky person, bit I have to say the cottage was not so clean. There were cobwebs all over the inside, but more importantly, the bathroom was filthy. There was dried urine all over the bottom of and behind the toilet. The sink looked like someone had spit toothpaste all over the fixtures. I didn't expect to have to clean the bathroom myself the night we arrived. Also, whoever stayed there before us left BBQ sauce all over the grill. Furthermore, the kitchen cabinets and handles were sticky with syrup or sauce. I expected the the cottage to be clean. From the pictures on VRBO, I knew the cottage was a little dated, but the location made it worth it. Now, I am second guessing my decision. I would highly recommend a deep cleaning, new comforters, and new mattresses. A few positives, great front porch, glider, and kayaks.
