  • Great Family Base


    The property was perfect for a gathering of 11 teens and adults plus a dog. 6 bedrooms and 5 baths made it easy with 6 women. Management was highly responsive on some things, delivering a mixer at 11pm, and slower to respond on others. A maintenance issue during our visit took down the ratings due to a pipe leak which shut off the water to a bathroom requiring work in a lower bathroom. It happens. Workers were very pleasant. I'd rent again.

    From the owner: "Thank you for you review and we look forward to seeing you next year"

  • Disappointed.


    No nice area for outdoor relaxing. Fireplace area small with overgrown weeds. Broken handle on oven. No gas grill. Old linen left on front porch from last guests. Worst of all, 3 people in our party came home with bedbug bites. Otherwise the place was clean and comfortable.
