    Owner/manager responds:

    Sincere apologies. I will add to the decription that phones can receive text and calls in the back 1st bedroom, but browsing the internet in the living room may be difficult. My phone does but my husbands doesn't. So reception does exist but not strong. I will also include this on the front letter to the cottage. Thank you for your feedback.
