“Misrepresented”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2009

From their website:
ELBERTA SAFARI COTTAGE, adjacent to the B & B, is a delightful house- keeping unit, furnished with souvenirs of Jan's and Bill's eight years spent in Africa, the Middle East and Far East. It has three twin beds. Suitable for all ages. $550.00/week. $89.00/night.

Jan and Bill were very nice. However, this is the text on their website describing the cottage. Misrepresented! It is a converted hottub/sauna room that now sleeps 5. Really a hottub room, the big bed is placed on top of a hottub! "House-keeping"? The kitchen is in the bathroom. You could reach out of the shower and grab a cup of coffee or your morning toast. You would wash your dishes in the bathroom sink. The only windows were the sliding door and a skylight. "Suitable for all ages"? To get to the hottub bed, there were a couple of large steps. Then to get to the two higher twin beds, you had to climb a steep ladder. Notice on their website you do not see pictures of the cottage.
We did not go into the main house, this could be lovely??
