  • Quaint house in a lovely location


    The property is well equipped and is just as described. It is comfortable and in a great location. We enjoyed the antique shops and restaurants within the easily walkable neighborhood. We would like to stay here again when we return to the area.

    We loved the location and proximity to shops, restaurants, the World Equestrian Center, and bike trails. Wish we were able to stay longer and walk around all the shops. The house is great and had been mostly updated but it does needs is more places to hang things. I would suggest bringing over the door hangers with you.

    The house is adorable! It was bigger and more spacious than expected which was a nice surprise. All of the rooms were a good size and the beds were comfortable. The fridge is smaller than a standard size and doesnt have an ice maker but it was big enough for us to put a bag of ice in. The lounges in the main living space were very cozy but a tight fit for a full house. The tv is guest friendly so we were easily able to log into streaming services. All of the light and fan remotes were labeled, which was very helpful. I would definitely recommend and would stay again! Thanks!
