Hi Cindy, we appreciate candid feedback as it always helps us improve our guests' experience. We realize that the bathroom is one of the weak points of the house at this time and is next up to be renovated. The whole house, including the bathroom/shower are professionally cleaned every 2 weeks, but no matter how clean it is, the shower does need to be replaced. We will be excited when those renovations are complete. Although we have not had other guests tell us that the house smells like our dogs, it might be from the carpets, which will be removed this summer. Our dogs do not enrer guests' rooms. We appreciate that your review is honest and talks about the good as well as the bad and gives gyests your overall impression of your stay.
