    Debbie was a great hostess. We had a couple of things come up, but she was always quick to respond and assist. Even took time to come over and introduce herself. The house was cozy and peaceful, far enough away from town for the peace and quiet, but not too far away from town when we decided to venture out. Everything was provided that you could think of that was needed. Thank you Debbie for the hospitality!

    Debbie was a great hostess. We did have something come up, but she was quick to respond and took care of us. The area was very peaceful and allowed us to relax away from the hustle and bustle of town, but was still close enough when we decided to venture out. Thank you Debbie for a wonderful stay!

  • Awesome apartment


    Debbie is an excellent host with great communication and helpful tips. The apartment is exactly as shown in the photos. It is spotlessly clean, very quiet, a comfy king size bed and a welcome hot tub at the end of each day. It was just my husband and myself, but 2 couples could easily stay here with the 2 full bathrooms and Murphy bed in living room.

    If ever in the area again, we would definitely stay here!

    Thanks Debbie!
