  • a great place to stay!


    If you are contemplating staying here at all... do it!

    you will not be disappointed. Beautiful, perfectly equipped, comfortable and feels very much like a home away from home. Highly recommend this place. Communication

    with John, our host was wonderful and accommodating.

    would stay here again!

  • 100% AMAZING Home - not house!


    First off - this place is a HOME not just a house. You feel it the minute you walk in.

    I have stayed at many places through VRBO and Airbnb all over the country. I have seen the all types of places like a Clint Eastwood movie - The good, the bad and the ugly. I have had responsive and non-responsive hosts. I have had places that claim everything is there (such as shampoo, etc) and it not be and some that were true to claim. I have seen some places where the pictures look close to what you get and some that were no where near what they presented. In short, I go with an open mind that anything can happen. You are booking off the hope that it is as advertised right? Well I can tell you this place is 100% as advertised.

    In fact, this place was so much more than what I expected. The pictures cannot do justice for how gorgeous this place it! This is hands down the nicest place I have rented in over 8 years of doing this. Plenty of space inside, parking is awesome with the circle drive and backup turn out in the driveway. Outdoor fireplace (too hot for me to use) would be awesome for hanging on the back porch. Huge backyard for corn hole, and any other number of outdoor games (bounce house, etc.).

    From the beginning, they were responsive and before I even took my trip, felt like I was friends with them. Everything was as described and even more!

    If I could give it a 5++, I would. I tend to score with 4s because there is always something that could have gone better, but this one is a 5!

    Great location and the area around it is very nice. I highly recommend this place.

    We were there for a baseball tourney for my son in college. The tourney was to be his last and it was a bittersweet trip! Staying here was part of the "sweet".
