Pauline E, Owner at Morning Mist Cottage Retreat, responded to this review

I was unaware of this review submitted 14 months ago. Unfortunately, several guests this year made mention of this review when asking about my beautiful hot tub. This review is, for the most part, misleading and written by a guest who was offered compensation. I have had 101 outstanding reviews and sadly one out of all of these shows up... More
