Response from the owner The review of the house is completely inappropriate since the problem that occurred was due to a County sewer line failure- off of the house property and under the public street, and the renters were well aware of this. We were sorry the problem occurred but it was beyond our control. As soon as we became aware that a toilet had overflowed and it was determined to be a County sewer line problem, the County officials were contacted and the workmen were there promptly and worked late into the evening, and then again early in the morning to restore service. Further, our staff worked well into the evening cleaning up the renters waste that that had overflowed onto the floor due to the failure of the County line. Rather than being thanked, the staff was treated rudely by the renters. It is obviously unfortunate that the toilet overflowed due to the County line failure, but to review the house harshly and treat the staff rudely there to clean up the renters waste, is wrong. Further, there is no front porch and no sewage company had been called out the week prior. This house is the most popular vacation rental house in St. Michaels (almost 25 years operating as such), and of the thousands of people who have stayed at the house over the years, I can count on one hand the number of complaints.
