This home is lovely, with a gorgeous yard, close to Kenyon College but a peaceful retreat away from it all. Barbara is a kind, generous host. We loved staying here!

Very sweet host, with terrific communication and follow-up. House is very convenient to Kenyon, and spotting wildlife in the woods from the back porch (deer and racoons!) was a treat.

Response from Barbara:
Thank you so much for the feedback--it truly means a lot! I didn't realize we had anymore trash inside because we'd taken it out to the curb--I should have double-checked and that makes me feel awful. We also should have communicated that the fridge was for your use, too--we put the beer on the top shelf hoping you'd help yourselves, but it's no use if we don't mention it. We don't mind our guests using our stuff, which is why we've kept things out in the past and they've helped themselves. I am going to make sure to ask guests what they prefer in the future because of course this is not going to be the case always. I am so sorry for leaving the dog stuff out and we are embarrassingly nose-blind. Thank you for understanding and for pointing it out because we took it for granted. We have two Standard Poodles and I just this morning was saying to myself that the combination of dogs and woods creates the need for daily mopping/vacuuming to keep things habitable. You've taught me some good airbnb lessons and I'm grateful. I really hope you had a good weekend despite these things and I'm sorry that you felt at all uncomfortable. I appreciate everything that you've said and apologize for the things you point out. I will implement better practices based on your feedback.
