Regarding your comments:
I usually stock more toilet paper and paper towels, but I was not able to come up to the island between the last renter and you, so I did not realize that they had used up the supplies.
The store on the island does stock these items, so it is not worth going to Portland for them.
My description does warn renters to bring everything nevertheless.
The cleaning person was supposed to do the laundry and make the beds, she did not tell me that this was not done, I apologize...
I cannot provide firewood since I have nobody who can cut them, I will try to find out if anyone sells it.
The stove is a normal cook stove, never had any issues about heating or boiling on it, always cooked our lobsters on it. Cant imagine what caused your difficulties.
The grill does indeed need gas, but it was not part of the amenities offered with the house.
Putting a railing on the back step is a good idea; we never needed it, but I realize that if older people stay in the house it is helpful. Will put one up.
