  • Perfect home away from home


    Booked to spend Christmas weekend with family that live near by. The place was absolutely wonderful! Even had a full size Christmas tree and some other decor around the house. Coco the host was extremely helpful and even texted to make sure we made it ok and to make sure everything was fine upon arriving. The neighborhood was nice and quiet but yet only 2 blocks from the main drag. We really couldn’t have asked for a better place Thank you!

  • Home away from home


    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at The Bennett. Our host, Colleen, as well as her husband, were very prompt in replying to any questions we had. The layout of the house was perfect for when the grandchildren spent the night. And the backyard, which is actually 3 combined backyards, was a blessing for when kids needed to burn off energy. We’ll definitely be staying here in the future.

  • Lovely home


    The Bennett is a nice house, it has all the amenities needed for comfort, very clean and plenty of room for slumber parties with the grandkids while I was visiting from Texas. I’ll be back in the Spring and plan to stay there again.

  • Functional and beautiful home with an amazing hostess


    Our stay was wonderful from the very beginning as our hostess Colleen ensured our stay was nothing short of amazing. Upon arrival we were greeted with homemade cookies which the kids of course loved! Colleen was also gracious enough to let the kiddos play in not only our backyard, but her own as well as another house she rented that had a swing and a basketball court. We greatly appreciate her letting the kids run free! The home itself was very functional, beautifully decorated, and Colleen even took the time to light a candle in the Jack-O-lantern outside the front door each night, what a nice touch! We couldn't have been more impressed, if we're ever in the area again we will definitely be staying at one of Colleen's rentals! I travel for work a lot and have stayed in countless vacation home rentals and Colleen is hands down one of the best hostesses I've ever worked with!
