I rented this cottage because I spent my summer's as a child on this lake. The grounds are beautiful with lovely plantings and huge pine trees. The wildlife spectacle totally entertained me. The weather was perfect to escape the summer heat of Dallas. The wifi and cell phone reception were great, which was essential since this was a "working vacation" for my husband. For the most part we really enjoyed our stay.
I had one major problem however. The entire cottage, linens, furniture, mattresses, etc., REEKED of moth balls. It was suffocating! I had to drag as much as I could outside to air it out. I washed all the linens, etc. but it didn't help.
Additionally, the house was not ready for renters. Every cupboard in the kitchen was filled with old food, yuck. The house had not been recently cleaned either. Things were dusty, there were cobwebs everywhere.
There seemed to be some confusion between the homeowner's handyman and the rental management... Plus
