  • Great home to share with family


    My family and “friend family” had a wonderful stay. The home is beautiful and welcoming. Well appointed and clearly created by designers, even the outdoor spaces were amazing. We didn’t have to worry about a thing. Never made one trip to the store. Location is great and accessible to everything. Neighborhood is quiet and not one issue. Our hosts were wonderful and checked on us throughout the stay. We will absolutely book again. Don’t miss out on the muffins! Perfect way to wake up each morning.

  • Came for a Wedding


    We came for our son’s wedding in Ravenden Springs. The house was perfect! Everyone had their privacy, and plenty of room to be together when we wanted to be. The “Welcome Muffins” were so good we ordered another 1 1/2 dozen!

    The kitchen was fully stocked with dishes, cookware, and spices. The beds were so comfy and the air conditioning worked great! If we’re ever back in the area, we’ll definitely stay there again.

  • Nice place to stay for a get-away on the Spring River


    The house has a good story to it. It is very old but has been updated to compliment well.

  • Wonderful


    Wonderful historic house. Great location to browse Main Street and very walkable to Buford Beach.House has an exceptional dining room and comfortable living room as well as a fantastic porch and patio with bbq and outdoor seating. A few things guests should know are that the house is right across Main from the railroad tracks and the train blows the whistle, (not so often at night), Main is a relatively busy street, there is road noise, (again not so much at night but starts a 6am), and it is not a cook’s kitchen although adequate for our simple meals.Given all, we would definitely stay again!

    From the owner: "There is a sound machine in the primary bedroom which is there to help with the train and other noise. We add a sound machine in all bedrooms in the main house."

  • Nice house and convenient location


    It was a nice house with plenty of room for everyone. We had everything we needed while we were there and it's within walking distance of all the shops on Main Street. Just be prepared to hear the trains go by at all hours of the day and night.
