Since this review was written I have found someone who will come to the house, even on a Sunday, and clean up after my guests are done with the place. Just leave $125 cash or check for Kay Wortman and let me know as soon as you decide you want her services so that I can get her scheduled. Peter failed to mention that my guests are never asked to strip, launder or remake the beds. For sanitary reasons I need to make sure the sheets are washed on hot. Unfortunately, Peters group was the first to stay at the cabin for the 2018 spring season. The house was rented out all winter and the man who was there was there until May second. When I could finally get access to the house, I only then found out then that the router didn’t work anymore, or that the fireplaces needed servicing. I knew that the new router wouldn’t arrive until after they had left, so I asked Peter to bring his, which he didn’t mind doing, unfortunately his required coax cable that I did not have. He said that they could use 4G on the smart phones, and that they would be fine. They arrived just two days later which was not enough time to get a repairman out there before the fourth. I did not want to disappoint Peters group by telling them that they could not come for the party that they wanted. In retrospect, I made a mistake in renting the cabin when there was still more work to be done to restore the cabin back to the condition that it was in before my wintertime tenant moved in. It was over eighty degrees when they arrived and departed. I did not think it would be “chilly” for them at night. If he had just called me I could have directed him to the electric heaters and where they were stored. Meanwhile there were blankets on the beds and many, many, more blankets clean and ready for their use. Peter booked at the last minute and I did not have time to get these things ready for him in time. There was a lot to be done. I paid a professional cleaner $100 for their arrival. We got it done in time and I told him that the house was in immaculate condition to which he agreed when I showed him around. I told him that I just spent $100 on cleaning for them. I showed them the cleaning list, and they never said anything to me that they had no intention of cleaning up after themselves. I won’t go into detail about how they left it, because that would be just gross, but had I known there was going to be trouble, I could have called Kay to see if she was busy. I say this because I believe something could have been worked out. I am a solution oriented person and have a can do attitude. I never ask guests to wash windows. Kay does that, but when people have kids or dogs the glass door can get smudged up. My guests know that is true with their kids and dogs and don’t mind taking care of that. I ask that the throw rugs be shaken and left on the picnic table. I do ask that the floor and carpet be vacuumed, that and bathrooms, (but not “deep” cleaning), are pretty standard. What I hear from my other guests is that they have stayed at lots of other Airbnbs and they are always required to clean up afterward. I couldn’t see how Peter’s group did anything except pack up and clear their own belongings out the morning they left . I have never been in this situation before, and nobody has ever left it as dirty as they did. I have been on the other major vacation rental website for seven years, and have an average of 4.5 stars from 67 reviews. I never accused them of “stealing” my knife, I said one was missing. Actually a plate was destroyed, but I just let that go. Peter has never reimbursed me for the $80 it cost me to clean up after their party. They were a group of six people for two nights. Things were made dirty, and needed to be cleaned after they were done.
