This is hilarious!! A couple booked for two nights at our place, but abruptly left early the next morning saying “We’re checking out early after experiencing the traffic to our destination.” (They were going to a wedding at a town 18 miles from us and had investigated the venue the day before - which I warned them that the Friday traffic was horrendous in that area.) That’s not the hilarious part, it’s what she said in her review.
Public Review: “We stayed at Tami and Christopher’s in order to attend a wedding in Cornelius, NC. Troutman is out of the way on a country road. Their place is a hobby farm with lots of birds and animals. If you are an animal lover, you will be comfortable here.”
Private feedback: “We appreciated your hospitality and willingness to host us. I will have to make certain when booking next time to restrict myself to places with no pets. My son and daughter in law have lots of pets as substitute children so I do understand the love owners have for them. I’m just sorry it didn’t work out.”
Well, I guess people really should read our descriptions and look at our photos because we describe our place as a “farmette,” list all the animals we have with photos of them. She gave us 3 stars for accuracy, stating: “this place is a hobby farm witty numerous animals, I am not an animal lover.”
Even weirder, is that when they checked in, she asked if her partner could pet and feed the donkeys! So, we did and then he wanted to see the quail, pigeons, chickens, also. All I can say is oooh la la and c’est la vie!
