Your original Booking was for THREE (3) people not 4! I also said "No worries about the 3rd night, not making a big deal out of it. The cottage was completely gutted and renovated at the end of last year...everything in it is high end and custom, and I simply ask that it is cared for and respected. The condition you left the cottage in was far from that. And if you think it is taking me 5 minutes to clean you are sorely mistaken - - Pictures are worth a thousand words Can - look at them. I never asked that anything be folded with the exception of asking that the Pendleton Wool Medicine Blanket be brought in from the outside, not have things thrown on the floor! A sink full of dirty dishes, 2 pans, glassware, etc. The dishes and pan top in the dish drainer had GREASE all over the top of it and everything else had to be rewashed! Countertops full of food egg, coffee grounds, cutting boards filthy, etc. I asked that all the styrofoam be taken with you, as that is not typical garbage for a stay. All linens including duvet covers freshly washed and bed made Thursday night before your arrival, and air mattress and additional linens put into the cottage Friday afternoon. Not sure why you felt
things didn't smell clean - I use unscented natural detergents with hot water in the event someone has allergies...
The additional Cleaning Fee is for the MESS you and your guests left. Also, observing that you used CHARCOAL LIGHTER in the Woodturning Stove, I have to have a chimney sweep come out and clean it to prevent a flue fire!!! That charge is $150 all by itself -
The night you checked in I gave your friend my cell number so you could contact me directly - - your only request was for additional firewood, when I had already told you there was a small amount for your use. Also, you left the bedroom heater on at 85 degrees with the windows open...You received the cottage in IMMACULATE condition and left it filthy. End of Story.
