Sleeping arrangements.
 
1 Attachment(s)
My family has a summer cottage on the Lake in Michigan.
It is a beautiful old house frame house, (120 years). It has 5 bedrooms with 2 twin beds in each room. We rent it out, and the twin beds enable the house to sleep more people. It is decorated very nice with painted hardwood floors, but it is a well lived in cottage.
The family has owned the house for 75 years, and I have spent at least two weeks there every summer of my life. I am very sentimental and protective of the house.
I ask different couples up to the house when I go, to spend the week on the beach with my hubby and me.
My question is, if you were a guest of someone at their house would you ever rearrange the furniture so you could move the twin beds together, so you and your partner or spouse could sleep together.
I want my guests to enjoy their stay but this bothers me no end. I try not to take it as an insult to me or my house, but I hate it. It has been done by two different couples on several occasions, and I they are comming up to the house in a couple weeks.
I would never say anything to them, But I was just curious as to weather I am being over sensitive. Also would anyone else move the furniture at someone elses house, and that it's done all the time.
My husband and I have gone to the cottage for the last 20 years together and have never moved the beds.

If people are used to sleeping together and you haven't spoken up about them not moving the beds together, I don't see where they're in the wrong.

If you don't want them doing it you need to TELL them, not just silently fume.

Why does it bother you? Do you and your hubby sleep separate, or squish into one twin bed together when you're staying there? Do you expect your guests to sleep separately, or squish together on a twin bed?

Why would a guest be so forward as to move someone else's furniture in the first place? I suppose you would have me leave notes on the bedroom door to not move the furniture. It never occured to me that anyone would rearrange the bedroom.

It's not like they're redecorating.. Just pushing two beds together to make their stay a bit more comfortable. When I vacation with my SO, I expect to be able to sleep next to him.. :P my opinion may change in another 20 years - ha!!

I do not care where they sleep but it bothers me that they rearrange my furniture.
I sleep in one twin bed and my husband sleeps in the other. If there is any hanky panky to be had there are ways to do it without rearranging the furniture.

I am sorry, I see no problem, shows the couples love each other.

As long as they do not harm to the furniture or floor, I think you are overreacting, but that's just me as I would have no problem with it.

I bet you would feel differently if someone came in and rearranged your tack room. So they could be more comfortable.

It's not about hanky panky to me... It's about sleeping (yes, as in sleeping, not .. Um.. "the horizontal tango") comfortably with my SO. They're not redecorating, painting the walls or anything - they're moving two beds (or one, really) to feel closer to their SO. When I'm on vacation, it's my time to reconnect with my SO, I'd hate to go somewhere peaceful and otherwise perfect and have to either not sleep with him, or practically sleep on top of him (not so fun without the "fun" being involved..)
I do not see the big deal, and yes I think you're over-reacting by being mad about something so (in my mind) small. I'd get a little annoyed if I had to move the beds back every time... But I'd probably have some rooms with Queen size or better beds if I entertained couples often.

Personally I don't feel like they're in the wrong. If you haven't spoken up about it then don't complain when it keeps happening. Speak up or let it go. Sorry to sound harsh but you can't expect them to read your mind!
