Julie was a great guest and was game to come to our farmhouse despite the cleaner not having been through (I had washed all linens, however). Unfortunately with the cold nights beginning a mouse had found its way into the house, deciding it was much cozier inside than out. This is the reality of living in the country in an old home and we have taken care of it-- and will continue to take care of it. This review is valuable because if the possibility of seeing a mouse on a fall morning is too much for you, this place is not for you! Other than that, the kitchen and rest of the house is absolutely clean. Our cleaner spends 3-4 hours each time before every guest comes. We will close up the house soon as this is the reality as soon as cold weather sets in.
