Reading prior reviews helped me pick this place for a girls weekend. Things were not as clean as I expected based on previous reviews; not “immaculate” or “sparkling clean” but it was satisfactory. Seeing a mouse in the kitchen was quite unexpected, but we realize we were in the …

Response from Ginger:
Unfortunately, all hosts get that one in a million guest who is not satisfied. I'm surprised by your comments. When you called about the mouse, my husband and I were both out of town. I arrived at the cottage within an hour and easily disposed of the mouse and cleaned up under the sink where he had gotten in. You were not there, and you told me not to hurry. We treat the outside of the cottage for pests, but very occasionally (maybe once a year) a mouse gets in. We take pride in our cottage, and future guests should read our many, many reviews that reflect our cleanliness. The website lists the "average" price of all stays, including discounted weekly stays. We use the airbnb price tips, so the price varies. Sorry if you did not understand the airbnb pricing.

We loved Ginger’s cottage! Though we were out of luck in the weather Dept (rain the whole time) we loved staying indoors in the cozy cottage! So many thoughtful touches and little treats (a chemex coffee maker!!) We will definitely return.

Stay here. Such a cute space, and the outside is lovely and relaxing. Ginger is an awesome hostess. We are a group of 4 moms who wanted to relax around a fire pit and drink wine. Mission accomplished. We all loved it so much we are already thinking about when we can come again. …
