I never expected that I would say this, however I am so ready to leave this cottage and go back to my own dwelling.
For the past few days, I have been sticking it out and praying for this vacation to end.
I never expected that I could have such an unpleasant time in a cute little cottage in the middle of the woods in the middle of the wonderful mountains. However, these homeowners made it easily possible by refusing to install a current central heating appliance in their rental property! Who would have guessed that when we booked this particular rental cottage, we would also be signing up for a week separate from any current heating appliances? When we got to the property, everything looked lovely and adorable. I got inside and certainly appreciated the frigid air and abandoned cottage smell! The venue had that woodsy smell that can only be attained with stagnant woodland air… At the time, it didn’t register that such still indoor air corresponded to a lack of central heating and cooling appliances. I only discovered the void of heating appliances a few moments later, when I attempted to modify the temperature control device and realized that I couldn’t find a temperature control device at all. That’s when my bestie cheerily exclaimed that he found the wood burning fireplace and hoped we had a good amount of firewood. Both of us went outside and began poking around looking for a dry burning wood. All that we could even find was semi musty and rotted out firewood in an outdated shed! So began a week of smokey, ineffective heat from the wood burning fireplace and a week of total misery because it was way too chilly.
