    “There are a couple of things i wish to point out on behalf of the females guests.”

    Two of the bedrooms have no mirrors, also the dish washer broke down and we only had ONE dish cloth for drying. The machine was replaced and all was well. This is our forth visit to this house and it has always lived up to our expectations as dose the island of Portland. See you next year, god willing
