  • Perfect holiday getaway!


    I stayed here with my adult daughters over Christmas. It's the best VRBO experience we've ever had - the house is beautiful and cozy, with plenty of space and amenities. We were able to completely relax and enjoy the family time.

    This property is only a short walk to the hiking trails at Ruffner Mountain, and we took full advantage of that. The house was decorated for Christmas, and we felt fully ensconced in Christmas cheer.

    This was an important celebration for us - the last time we could expect to be in the same state over Christmas for the foreseeable future. I can't think of a better place to enjoy the time. This rental made the entire experience magical and memorable. Highly recommended!

    From the owner: ''Thank you Laura. I am so glad you enjoyed your time here. You were the perfect guests and a nice way to end my first year sharing the home.''

  • Terrible!!


    The home had a nice layout, but that’s where it ends. The house had a terrible smell as soon as the door was open. The home was NOT clean. We had to buy supplies and clean it ourselves.

    I tried to resolve this with the owner but to no avail. I would like the clean fee return at $50.00. For our inconvenience. P.S I have photos!!

    Hi Kelvin, we want our guests to arrive at a vacation home that is 100% ready for their stay, so we take the cleanliness of our properties seriously! We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We use a cleaning service to have the home professionally cleaned before each guest's stay. So we were surprised when you reached out after your stay to bring cleanliness concerns to our attention. In addition, a deep clean had also been done shortly before your stay. We wish you had reached out during your stay, we would have promptly responded and been more than happy to send the cleaning team back to the home to address your concerns. After learning you had purchased cleaning supplies, to make up for the inconvenience and to cover the expense of the cleaning supplies we extended an offer of a $75 reimbursement to which you declined.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Great home


    This house was great and made us feel like we were at our own home. Beautiful house inside and out. Very responsive owners. Loved this place and would stay here again.
