Sorry you found our home so unappealing, Jeff! As renters, we keep up the exterior as much as our circumstances allow. We choose to spend time and energy on guest rooms and shared spaces inside the house—the spaces we feel Airbnb guests are ultimately paying for when they book. That being said, most guests spend a significant time away from our home, enjoying the beauty of the forest & Mt Hood, rather than in their room. You led us to believe you would be showing your young son various sites around the mountain, and so we made an exception for you to stay — we usually don’t take kids under 12. Unfortunately, it seemed most of his energy had to be expressed inside the house. We hope you enjoyed the rest of your trip. Cheers.
