Since you use it as a rental, don't you think it's a very real possibility that renters also move the beds?

Honestly, as long as my guests who chose to re-arrange my guest room put everything back, I don't think I'd even notice that they'd moved things. Rearranging the furniture in my living room would annoy me but a bedroom that nobody but them is using wouldn't bother me at all.

I don't think I'd have a problem at all with this.

I mean they're beds, they're pretty moveable things. If you have a cottage that you rent out people aren't going to think its your house, they'll treat it more like a hotel. They're not trying to offend you, they're just trying to get comfortable.

I wouldn't care if someone went into the spare room and moved the bed? It just wouldn't bother me. At hotels I've moved beds before. Its not really like they're move stuff around, just pushing two beds together, which can easily be put back.

How is the storage on the property? Would it not be too out of the way to replace one or two rooms with larger beds? Just coming from the viewpoint of a potential customer. Say if I were filling out a comment card at the end of things. That would be my first choice in solving the issue. The smaller beds could be stored for backups when needed. It wouldn't be like redoing the entire house. Just one or two rooms.

if i moved something i would always put it back the way i found it before i left..

just seems like if you are gonna take the time to move the stuff the owner has set out the least you can do is put everything back the way they left it.

People try to make themselves as comfortable as they can, espeically when they are not at home. I certainly would not take offense to it. They're just trying to make it as "homey" as they can. Heck if I rented a room by myself that had 2 twin beds, I'd push them together to have a bigger bed for myself; however, I am the type that would put things back when Im done.

This is what happens when you have democrats in office

I think if you are that uptight I wouldnt want to come stay with you at all. I can just imagine how yo are with everything else. Seriously get over it. If you are that obsessive about the house stop inviting other people up.

I can see both sides. Personally, I don't think it wouldn't bother me in the least, but I also couldn't imagine moving furniture in somebody else's house.

Are they close friends? Maybe they just feel that comfortable with you that they have assumed you won't mind.

I think your only options are to either speak to them about it, or else put up with it. I do hope they at least have the courtesy to put them back where they originally are.

Really, when a person stays at a holiday home they don't really spend that much time in their rooms anyway, do they? I wouldn't think you would spend enough time in there that one would feel a need to move things around. I know when we go to the inlaws holiday home we are barely in the rooms as we're outside at the beach, ect from morning to night.

Stop for a minute, open your mind, learn. You may not agree with what I say, I may not agree with what you say but we will both learn something new.

I would have moved the beds together too, but I would have moved them back before leaving.

If you are inviting couples over, why would you keep twin beds instead of swappin them for a full? How many singles are you inviting over to justify keeping one person beds? Could you swap out some of the beds for fulls? If a space can fit 2 twins, it can fit 1 full.
