First, let me say that I didn't actually stay in this Inn. We simply made a reservation request and it was a terrible experience. We waited several days and never received a response. I called and left voice mail and sent an email. When we finally got in touch, the lady said she replied but we certainly never got any kind of email or call.
Next, since the apartment is advertised as fully equipped, I had asked if there was an oven. I wanted to bake a batch of sugar cookies since we were staying there on Christmas. The lady said the oven wasn't available for use because of insurance purposes. I said that was fine, that our relatives lived near and I could bake there. HOWEVER, the lady continued to badger me heavily about my potential misuse of the unit and even said, "we can't have strange smells coming out of the apartments." She THEN told me that her husband was listening in on the other end of the phone (silently? freaky? why?) and that he also thought they shouldn't rent to me.
I have never been so offended by any travel arrangement in my life. The lady said I should just stay somewhere else (what? I said I wouldn't use your oven!). I replied that NO, I would not be staying there because she was incredibly RUDE!
Stay away from this freaky couple. It's not worth the hassle!
