It was lovely to meet you and your dogs. I’m really sorry that the cooking utensils were melted. I wouldn’t want you to have to use melted cookware. It helps me so much when you tell me of any deficiencies during your stay, this is why I check in periodically & it’s your opportunity to let me know what you need. I would have been happy to bring you a couple knives and new utensils if you had let me know. Without saying anything, I don’t have the chance to fix it. (For my future guests reading this, it’s the reason I txt & call to ask you how your stay is going and if you require anything. Don’t be afraid to say what you need.) New cookware and knives on the way!
