When my friend called me to tell me that I had won a numerous-night-getaway, I was over the moon.
All that changed when she mentioned the name of the hotel.
It was awful that it was an Airbnb instead of a hotel. If it weren’t for the fact that the stay was fully-catered for, I would have canceled, then when I got into the locale, the family room had a floor-to-ceiling gas fireplace on 1 wall and a built-in bookshelf on another. A set of double french doors was situated in the middle of a row of windows and appeared to lead out onto a back deck with a great view of the lake. Their online information stated that they had a boiler upgrade that would cater to whole-house heating during the frosty months. A heating provider’s number was gave however given their records of respected oil furnace/heater tune-up, it was likely to be of no use unless in the case of an emergency. There was also a pinned list of several energy-saving help tips in the kitchen that the guests were encouraged to apply. All this reminded me of the gas oil furnace back home. It was long due for service and duct cleaning. The heating corp had advised the cleaning be done every numerous to multiple years. I checked for any leaks in the ductwork and sealed them. I also cleaned the washable filter; that was the most I could do. I left the rest for the house services company. The HVAC repairman busy to disinfect the air duct on the same afternoon I was heading to the Airbnb, so I called ahead to postpone to a later afternoon. In the meantime, I would like the newly discovered gem.
