  • As nice as it gets


    This was a beautiful property in a fantastic location. It was quiet during the week. More activity on the weekend. I had great customer support when a battery needed replacing.

    We had a wonderful time staying in this adorable house. The front porch was wonderful and the small town of Defiance is just charming.
