I was surprised by your review and very sorry that you did not understand you were not renting a vacant house. I always allow my guests to cook in the kitchen, use both the living room, dining room and den as they wish. I am not home much on weekends and try very hard to stay in my master suite when I have guests, so they can enjoy my home. I am also sorry about any odor you found unpleasant. This is a dog friendly environment and I called my carpet cleaner immediately to insure there is no odor present in the future. My chocolate Lab feels just terrible if she caused any problems for you. The dogs are not in the house, when I am not here and with me in my suite when I am present. No animals are ever allowed in my guest room, where you stayed unless they come with a guest. I always allow service or companion animals to come here, but so far have only entertained one perfect little poodle. I will certainly review my description to make sure no one else thinks they are renting a vacant property.
