  • Lovely home with qualifications


    First, our host, Margie, responded quickly to our inquiries and was accommodating, 5 stars. Her property is a beautifully renovated, clean and well-maintained home built in the 1800s, five more stars. Unfortunately, the home predates a local highway that runs directly in front of it (less than 20 feet from the front bedrooms). Eighteen wheelers travel this highway 24/7, creating noise that scared us out of our sleep more than once. This problem might be remedied by using the quieter, back bedrooms upstairs, but, it was a rainy, hot, sticky July 4 weekend, and the upstairs was uncomfortably warm and stuffy. Although the property description includes window A/C units, none were installed. To be fair, we did not raise this issue with Margie and just stayed downstairs where it was cooler, though noisy.

    Your feedback plays a vital role in enhancing the overall experience for our guests. Once again, we appreciate your input, and we are committed to ensuring that our guests have a pleasant experience."



    The house was wonderful, though the living room sofa and chair were not a good fit for my height. I would have preferred a site more secluded, on the water. Nevertheless, this stay was so relaxing. The home was stocked well and any questions were addressed promptly. I would stay here again!
