Overall place was cute and convenient just as pictured. Host was a bit too involved and based on other reviews I don’t think we received the same warm welcome or attitude. But other than that the place itself was very cozy.

Response from Paul & Irene:
As a Superhost with AirBnB I am reaching out to you. I am sorry you did not feel welcomed. I have always been described as warm, friendly and informative about the Cottage and local area. I demonstrated and informed you as a guest no different than I have done for over 100 guests who describe me as warm and friendly. Respectfully, Irene

As a Superhost with AirBnB I want to reach out to you regarding your experience with the bed & pillows. First, I am sorry you were so uncomfortable. I thank you for your feedback. Second, I could have addressed the issue by seeking options with you for your comfort if I was made aware at the time when you were using the Cottage. I was never informed. Please accept our apology and in the future we will certainly address any questions/problems you or any quest has with our Cottage. Respectfully, Irene.
