  • Great house for groups


    We had a great time staying in Scott’s house for a weekend with friends. We were a large group of 6 couples and kids under 2 and the setup was perfect with enough space for everyone. It was really nice to have some bedrooms away from the main area so the kids could go to bed and the adults didn’t disturb them. Scott was a great host and was really helpful when we had a problem with one of the fridges. The one piece of feedback I would give is that while there are a lot of products in the home like spices etc, there were some basics missing (like olive oil). Not a huge thing, but keep in mind if there is something you really need for a certain dish. Easy enough solve though as town is about 10 mins away and had everything we needed. Would definitely recommend this place for a big family or group.
