  • My family and I really enjoyed our time at the property! It was overall a great experience.


    Overall the property was perfect for my family and I! The only thing that I can really say something slightly negative about was that the doors are all pretty uneven and a little hard to open. Other than that, the kids had a great time feeding the goats and the donkeys and playing outside! It was just the right amount of distance from everywhere that we needed to go. Would definitely stay here again!

  • Great little house with some quirks


    We had my family (me, husband, 2 kids), sister and husband, and brother and wife stay here for 4 nights. We didn’t realize 2 bedrooms are upstairs but only one bathroom is up there, so that was a little bit to figure out (the couples without kids stayed upstairs since downstairs had the king and queen together plus room for our cat in the bathroom). The house has been updated and was very clean - we did have a few bugs, but I believe that we as a combination of the gaps in doors due to foundation issues (more to come on that) and it being so hot and dry outside. Nothing like an infestation - just a stray beetle here and there. The biggest issue with the house is that the foundation badly needs leveling. Most interior (and some exterior) doors are hard to open and close. For my sister’s room upstairs (the room with only 1 bed up there), they could not close their door overnight because if they needed to leave the room, the door (which was very hard to close) made a terrible screeching sound. In the master downstairs, the double doors have pretty sizable gaps above one and below the other. They have made an attempt to block the gap at the top of the one door, but if you block the other one, you have to make the door inoperable. There were a couple of other things when we arrived like a doorknob that was loose to the point of almost coming off, missing pull string for the ceiling fan, and a faucet that was loose upstairs, but we were able to work around all of those things. The code we had when we first got there was wrong and that was the only time I had a little trouble reaching the property manager (they do have a back up though and I spoke to her). Ultimately we got in and it really is a great property with cute goats (some are bullies to each other though) and donkeys you can feed fruits and veggies to. The road to the property did have one significantly wallowed out spot - it wasn’t too much of an issue for us - we just veered around it - but if it was rainy, I would think that could be a little issue (it was hot and dry when we were there). Beds are okay - they are IKEA and a little on the firm side and fairly low to the ground. Definitely not our best nights’ sleep, but not the worst either. Overall, I would probably stay here again because of its great proximity to my sister’s house and there not being too many other pet-friendly options nearby, but I with other choices, we might stay elsewhere.

  • We enjoyed our stay very much.


    We can during a cold snap and the management company worked very hard to make us comfortable. Just so you know of this property will work for you. The beds are very comfortable and the kitchen is roomy and functional. There is no full sized stove and the grill is charcoal. In addition the pool table is basically not useful. If you are looking for a comfortable house with a decent kitchen you will be happy.

  • Can be better.


    The house is a nice place to spend a vacation with family but it needs up keeping and better house keeping. All the towels were dirty and some stained, the only oven the house has is a small counter top oven and it was filthy. There was bras and dirty socks in the couch. All the rugs in the master bathroom were dirty and stained. The floors and doors squeak, the downstairs bedroom door is broken and does not close. The windows do not close correctly they have gaps you can hear all the outside noise and wind coming through them. I know it’s an old house but all this is maintenance and house keeping.
