  • Beautiful home


    This was the nicest rental experience I’ve had so far. The couple that owns the place were very sweet and helpful. The place was clean and had more than enough space for us. It was also very well stocked with additional supplies in case you needed anything. I especially liked the privacy in the backyard.

  • Relaxation in the woods


    We loved the property and the secluded feel. Our kids loved exploring the woods in the back and the house had everything we needed. Hosts were prompt in answering questions but also let us enjoy our stay. Wonderful time and would return if in the area again!

    We had a wonderful stay in this basement apartment. It was very spacious and truly a nice place to spend time in. It was also close to many attractions.

  • Clean, spacious, and well stocked!


    We were very impressed with the amount of space, it gave us time together and apart if we wanted to be alone. The place was very clean and had everything you could want in a place away from home. They even had food and other products I wasn't expecting and have had to provide for myself at other places. (coffee filters, soaps, cereal, shampoo, hair dryers, etc) Would definitely stay here again!

    This property was beautiful. The owners live on site and you can tell they have a pride of homeownership with the property improvements they are doing. The unit is in the basement with enough room to host a large family. My only (minor) complaint was there was no local channels for TV news. We were quite happy with the internet connection considering how far out of town they are. We are 4 miles from our town and can only get DSL under 10mps.The hosts are friendly and very responsive to the needs of their guests.
