  • Charming but a little lacking

    3/5

    My friends and I enjoyed the house. I gave 3 stars for overall rating because of a few things. There was no ADA shower (one of the friends needed that). There were 6 of us and exactly 6 towels, which allowed for no emergencies, and there is no washer or dryer. So take your own just in case! There were no kitchen linens, so we had to use paper towels for drying our hands and the dishes that were hand washed. Silverware, pots and pans were sparse. No trash cans in the bathrooms. One of the upstairs bathrooms has the toilet directly in front of a window with no window treatments. 😳 A stair rail was broken.

    There is plenty of room for socializing and dining, and the setting is absolutely gorgeous! Just a few little things that could be addressed to enhance the experience.

  • Fun Home

    4/5

    Fun home with a lot of character. Large spaces for family to gather on main floor. Keep in mind that the "charm" of the older claw-foot tubs were made for bathing, so not so functional as a shower. But the one more modern tub/shower does fine. Priced right for what it is (space & charm) and what it is not trying to be (modern hotel feel).

  • Graduation Weekend

    5/5

    My family was in Alabama to attend my niece's graduation from The University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The house was large enough to accommodate 14 of us and gave us enough room to spread out and gather when needed. During down time, we often found ourselves gathering on the large living room couch. It was the perfect spot! Skyler was great with communication and available to help if needed. The house definitely met our needs for the long weekend. Some suggested upgrades include more traditional showers vs. the clawfoot tub showers, stone work on the steps to prevent trip hazards, and updated mattresses. Overall, the house was perfect for what we needed it and had a lot of charm.

  • Very nice place but ....

    4/5

    Very nice old house. So spacious and comfortable. The showers and sinks etc were very nice and clean but the windows, cupboards, trash closet etc were quite dirty. Plus the cleaning fee was very high so that was disappointing.
