  • Enjoyed our stay


    The house and location were fantastic. We would have liked to have known that the owner lives in the basement, however. As 2 single women we were not happy to discover this fact after arriving. He was very nice, but because vrbo advertises that you 'get the whole house' we definitely were not expecting this to be the situation. Other than that, the house was lovely, clean and well-stocked.

  • Enjoyable getaway


    We enjoyed our stay. We would have liked to have known before hand that there was someone in the basement. That startled us because we didn't see ether note until after we saw the person.

    This was a great place to stay while hiking the AT. The house has a lot of history. We would recommend it for anyone visiting this area.

    My husband and I really enjoyed staying here. The location was great and easy to find. Our hostess named Candy was awesome and went above and beyond to make sure we had a great stay. Would stay here again for sure. :)
