  • Cleanliness Great out of the way space to regroup


    Plenty of space and essentials. Clean, quiet and comfortable. Couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay for the week while visiting family. Central location made travel easy in any direction.

  • Very spacious


    The property was beautiful! The home was very spacious and wonderful if you have a large family. It is very close to Springfield and not too far to Top of The Rock which is where we ventured one day with our family!!

    The house is located off the road and has beautiful land all around it including a small creek behind the house! Again, this is a beautiful property for someone who wants to relax but still be close to amenities if need be!!

    Wi-Fi is a little slow but if you want to get away from it all, it’s perfect! Only 1 bedroom has a TV so make sure that’s not a must have on your list. But we had a great stay and would stay at this property again in the future

  • Could have been so nice...


    First of all, we did enjoy the quiet country setting, with a large front yard that overlooks a neighboring farm; it was peaceful and relaxing. The home is spacious, and the beds were comfortable. Also, I did appreciate quick feedback from the owner for a few questions I had. She left us a couple of extra outdoor chairs, after I had inquired if there were any more. But as much as we liked the beautiful setting, there were some issues which bothered us enough to know we would not choose this place again.Because they do charge a significant cleaning fee, I expected a reasonably clean home in all rooms. However, the hardwood floors were dirty, and I swept up a lot of dirt in the kitchen/dining area after we first arrived. Microwave had dried food inside. Bay window areas & some furniture were dirty also. The bathrooms were clean, though, so that was good.As another reviewer noted, there were many flies inside the home, which was manageable after much swatting & sweeping that first day. There were also many wasps hanging around the outside front; they seemed to come from the upstairs front dormer area. A family member who stayed in the upstairs front bedroom heard buzzing in the wall. These should be sprayed for.The front garden could have been so pleasant, but it was full of weeds and poison ivy. I understand not weeding a garden for fear of contacting the poison ivy, but there are companies who spray for that without harming other plants, so there's no reason to leave a garden in that state.Finally, I hope the owner will also try to take care of the spider situation inside. My husband killed 6 or 7 spiders in the master bathroom, near the tub and toilet. These looked like brown recluse spiders. We found one (live) in our suitcase upon our arrival home. (And we do not have these spiders where we live.)So, yes, this place could be so nice, if the owners will just take care of a few issues.

  • The Perfect Hone Away From Hone


    We couldn't have asked for anything more perfect, as far as location.....rehearsal supper less than 3 miles, wedding venue about 6 miles. Great family times, good beds, and COUNTRY!!! We do suggest that for as many ppl as the house can sleep, there was not sufficient hot water (we're so spoiled) and there needs to be another shower. But other than that, it was perfect.
