We just returned from 4 nights in a cottage at the Menemsha Inn and Cottages and though the setting was beautiful it was certainly NOT worth the money. When we checked in we were told that if we wanted bikes they could "maybe find a couple in the cellar that weren't in too bad a shape." When we got to our cottage it was beat up and in serious need of paint. The carpet was soiled, the bathroom so-so, the kitchen dirty. We didn't expect or want luxury at but they clearly hadn't spent a dime on freshening up the property for the summer season. There was also no firewood for the fireplace which was supposed to be provided so we called and asked for it. The second day housekeeping dropped off some towels but failed to show up to clean, the third day we were told when the towels were dropped off that she would "try to return" (which she did thank goodness) and the last day we found our bedspread had mysteriously disappeared and was not replaced. I told the guy at the desk when we checked out that there had been housekeeping problems. He thanked me and wrote them down, but didn't respond otherwise, other than to complain his girlfriend in London was calling him too much.
