Unfortunately, my husband and I had a very unpleasant experience during the check-out process with the host. We ended up leaving the house around 11:45 (check-out time was 11:00) and we did feel bad about losing track of time. We have two young kids (a 2 year old and 9 month old) which is not an excuse to be running late; but I would not have expected someone to be so rude considering that. Whenever we tried to apologize and tell her that we were trying to be as quick as possible (as she followed us around), she repeatedly tried to engage us, tried to start arguments, and scolded us about how she's never had a late checkout in 20+ years of renting the property. I'm a non-confrontational person so the whole experience was very upsetting to me especially the way she was talking to me in front of my children. Eventually, I took my kids to the car and my husband finished packing our car solo while the host switched to following him around the house. Although we were a bit late getting out of the cottage, it could have been handled in a much better way, especially given there was no damage or anything. In addition, I received an email from AirBnB that the host is requesting $200. $50 for being late, $100 for garbage she claims was not taken out (she took a photo of a small bin containing a small tied grocery bag of items which my husband removed when we left the property), and $50 for clean dishes that were in the dryer rack. Setting our interaction with the host aside, pros of the cottage was that it did have a beautiful view of the water and was pretty quiet. Cons were that we did not have cell coverage even though we were told AT&T had service there (airplane mode was used to prevent Canadian roaming charges), lack of wifi (plus or minus depending on person), lack of amenities (no bed sheets, hand towels, washrags, beach or regular towels, paper towel, toilet paper, throw blankets, etc.). They did have basic cable on the TV – the picture wasn’t the greatest but could make do. We’ve rented places several times before and have always had such positive experiences with the hosts. It’s really a shame that she handled it the way that she did, us running late certainly did not warrant the treatment we received.

Response from Susanna:
Jayne, thank you for renting my cottage. I am glad you enjoyed the pristine views of the lake and quiet atmosphere. The listing clearly states that bed sheets, towels and paper products are not provided by the owner. The listing also clearly states that check-out time is 11am. This allows me the time necessary to clean the cottage and make it ready - the same clean cottage you found upon check in - for the next guest. I understand that you removed your belonging, removed the trash and put the bed back in the place you found it by the time you left, but that was 11:45am, not 11am. I am happy to honor a late check-out, but I need to be made aware of it before I arrive and anticipate your 11am checkout. I think this is fair. My refrigerator, as well as my AirBNB listing, clearly states the charges that one would incur if certain clean-up duties are not performed. These clean-up duties are supposed to occur before your check-out time of 11am. Upon arriving at 11am, I found garbage in the bin ($100 fee), dishes left on the counter and not put away ($50) and was delayed 45 minutes in cleaning ($50). These are all posted and non-negotiable. I am sorry you consider these reasons for having an unpleasant experience, but quite frankly, they were all listed and you were aware of the charges and the check out time.

Perfect cottage for a small family looking to be on the water and within a few miles of downtown Lexington. Sue was a great host and very accommodating. Definitely the cleanest cottage you will find. Thanks for an excellent trip!
