  • Historical Farmhouse Christmas


    So, originally when booking this property I thought I had never been to the property prior however I used to go to many functions at this property decades ago, remember doing visiting the old forge decades ago by creek on a kayak. This was my first overnight stay and I wanted this Christmas to be as special as possible so all of our family members could come to visit, have fun, food, etc...however this may be my father's very last Christmas with us, so we wanted a rental house that was rich in history and this property just kept standing out to me no matter how many others I looked at. The host owners are awesome to work with. Wish I could rate them a 10 plus on here. While my nephew/nieces' family was visiting with us, they enjoyed learning about the property, the old forge and are thinking about renting it next spring/summer for their own family. I would recommend this property to anyone and everyone. I Loved and enjoyed being a house with old old farm doors and skeleton key holes like my Great Grandparents had that I grew up in about 1/2 the time as grandma was a walk away.

    To call this home charming is an understatement. This 200 year old property takes you back in time, while having all the amenities of a modern home.The property is amazing and you’ll be transported to simpler times relaxing by the river and watching fireflies.We stayed for a business trip, but this home would be perfect for families or groups looking to step back in time.The home is minutes from everything, but isolated enough to make you feel like you’re on vacation.If you’re in the area, I’d absolutely recommend this home.
