The goodwill of the property owner does not outweigh the downsides of the property, unfortunately. The owner is kind, attentive, and very responsive. The bed had springs that you could feel (the owner did make an attempt to rectify this but it didn't happen in time for our stay). There is dirt in just about every corner of the house; the kitchen is not up to restaurant cleanliness standards. There is trash in the yard, broken pots near front door, and dirt on front porch (first impressions count). There is a continuing musty odor that is strong when you enter. Part of the upstairs bathroom sink is falling apart at the side. I feel bad for reporting this as the owner was so kind and thoughtful but I cannot justify giving this even 3 stars. It is close to Tanglewood however and the owner know the town very well. I would not stay here again.
