    So glad the weather held out for our Thanksgiving visit. Our family had a great stay at Ricks home. Since there aren’t a lot of shops and restaurants close by, we bought groceries and we’re able to cook most of our meals and there was no shortage of kitchen amenities. The fire place downstairs warms the downstairs quickly. Our kids favorite pastime was making leaf piles.

    This home was just 10 minutes from my parents, so an ideal location for us.
