    Very nice and quiet place. Cute house and beautiful house decor. Really loved the Christian decor, make us felt home knowing that the owner is Christian too. We had plenty of space, it can fit a pretty good size family but only have 1 shower though. Kitchen is cozy and tight space but excellent condition of appliances. Didn't have a coffee maker but no problem we brought one with us. The only thing that we are not happy with was didn't realize until getting ready for bed at midnight that our bedsheet was not clean, there was hair on the bedsheet and skin follicles on the bottom of the bedsheet so had to strip the whole bed and did laundry. Pillows are so old and flat needs a new set of pillows in the master bedroom. Just suggestion to put a rug in front of the door so guest can wipe their feet off. The driveway is not paved so if it rains it's kinda muddy. Overall stay was great we didnot stay the rest of our reservation because of the weather, it poured and rained so hard for the next few days of our stay, so we went home early. I was looking forward to seeing more animals. In the future we would like to stay here again. Definitely Would recommend to others. Thank you and have a Bless day!

  • Awesome Place


    The environment was awesome! Getting to see the animals was a bonus! Also a very cool vault that kept our curiosity going 😁 It was very clean and exactly how it was described.

    Property was wonderful, secluded, peaceful, perfect fire pit! The house was so nice, but somewhat neglected, which was unfortunate because it is a beautiful property. Overall, had a great stay.
