There are spiders and bugs because the house is nearby the woods. Spiders do love the porches and lower level. We clean up spiders between guests.
We do our best to keep mice from getting into the house, but again, the house is old and in the woods. So it could happen.
If large wads of toilet tissue are used for each flush, you may clog the toilet. Children should be cautioned not use excessive amounts of toilet tissue. Use ONLY the toilet paper provided, which is not the big fluffy stuff. The house is on septic, so the paper is septic safe.
There is no 24 hour maintenance service. If something goes wrong we try our best to remedy the situation as soon as possible. Patience is greatly appreciated. You may have to tend to toilet clogs created during your stay. Each bathroom has a plunger. Here is an entertaining video on how to unclog a toilet. Click Here
Most importantly we want you to know that the house is cared for and we are available to tend to issues that may arrive. There are times when issues are not discovered between turnovers so we appreciate you letting us know of issues you discover during your stay. This allows us to tend to them on the following turnover if it does not need immediate attention.
TVs: We purposely put all of the TVs on to make sure they are working properly upon your arrival. The TVs have a small cable box provided by Atlantic Broadband that provides the digital channels. Use ONLY the BLACK remote. If you accidentally use the TV remotes you will loose the connection to the cable box. Use the black remote to turn off the TV and start over. Use the TV / Input button top right. Needs to be on HDMI for TV to come thru.
The TV remotes work the SMART TV functions only, not the channels. The kitchen TV is not a SMART TV.
Thank you again for your care of the antique home and the ability to accept that it is has unique and quirky features.
Tidbits, tricks, and quirks about the Brick House
Please don't expect perfection at the house. The house is OLD! It was built in 1860, as shown in this vintage photo. We have "modernized" the house and maintainted the old charm. But it has quirks. The floors and stairs creak and there are some very old windows and doors.
