    My family stayed at this house to attend a wedding nearby. The location was serene.

    The property itself is poorly maintained, with trash and tools strewn about the yard. The horses in adjacent pasture showed physical signs of neglect (one had a festering wound behind the ear, from a bridle that was ill fitted, put on wrong, and clearly left on the animal for far too long).

    The house itself was nice enough, and clean enough, but by no means spotless. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen stocked with adequate cookware. The water is very soft, and the Brita filtration system for drinking water looked about 30 years old, and tasted as if filters had never been replaced.

    The host was accessible (by phone), very friendly, responsive to our questions and needs.

    Overall, we had a fine stay, as we spent most of our days away from this property, visiting family. I would not recommend this location to people who hope to hang out on the property and enjoy the outdoors.

    This is a nice house for a family to stay in, if you’ve got activities elsewhere during the day.

    Very comfortable beds. I would consider staying here again if needed, but hope that the property is cleaned up (rats outside!) and the horses cared for properly.

  • Great stay, Very nice Host


    We enjoyed ourselves at Majestic Acres. This was a good way for us to unwind from working all week in the city. There was wifi here which is a must for the kids Ipads. Our kids woke up early to enjoy the horses and cows. We hiked around the large property. It was very clean with nice furniture and a large bathroom. There was a large covered porch with a great view of the nice covered and uncovered decking. We used the BBQ grills to cook while enjoying the beautiful weekend. There was plenty of room for parking for my parents and brother to visit and enjoy the BBQ with us. The decking is quite large and could accommodate a nice outdoor party for a future stay. We will return again and hopefully bring more friends to enjoy this place with us. I recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy the outdoors with the comfort and safety of a nice home.
