My wife and I rented Moosetracks Lodge in Cherryfield, MA. The place was advertised as 2BR, 1BA, newly decorated. In reality, it has NO bedrooms, only an open loft with 2 sleeping areas. The place has tawdry furnishings, is dirty inside, and is minimally furnished. Furthermore, it is 20-30 minutes by car from anything, The closest store is a motel convenience shop 20 minutes away. Gas is 1 hour away. Groceries are even further. Entry is via a terrible rutted road that takes 20 minutes to navigate each way. Our deposit refund was 6 weeks in coming. Stay away.
I worked at one of your "perfect places" and I think that only the photos are perfect. The places can be extremely dirty, and is dishonest to call them perfect.
