Wondering about your young children?
In our VRBO listing, we suggest that the property is not suitable for young children. Often guests inquire why we state that. It's not that we don't like children. In fact, we have many guests with young children in their group. I would suggest you know your children and their needs before you rent Turning Leaf Cottage. We do have an open stairway in the main living area. It is structured so that we cannot put a gate up easily.
Also, we have many accessories out in the property. We prefer that guests do not re-arrange the home and its accessories as it adds much extra time to preparing for the next group coming into the home. We also have a great deal of windows that little fingers can leave full of smudges.
That being said, we don't mind having children in our home. The home is not childproofed. Each family has different expectations and knows their children. We certainly want them to be safe. We ask is that you leave the property as you found it both in cleanliness and placement of furniture and accessories. If you think your children will not handle the stairs well or be safe, perhaps this property is better to be used in a few years when the children are older.
