  • A gem in the forest


    We stayed for 4 days here while visiting with cousins from across the country and Canada. A perfect retreat with all the amenities you could ask for. We will definitely stay here again. One side note, we couldn’t find a cheese grater if there was one. Otherwise 5 stars.

  • Wonderful stay!


    This place was great, and the hosts are as well. It's like staying at your family's house; super comfortable, homey, and nice. The beds were great and the kitchen was furnished well. Sitting on the back deck with the pond was relaxing, snd the neighborhood was really quiet. We will be back! A perfect home away from home.

    We would love for you to come back and stay anytime."

  • Comfort and charm


    We stayed here for the second time and everything was equally delightful. Comfortable seating in living and family rooms allow for visiting, games and relaxation. The back patio features additional seating in a woodland setting with expansive lawn, goldfish pool and waterfall water feature, lovely planters and plantings - barbecue available. Combined kitchen (fully stocked) w barstool seating and dining room make family style meals easy to provide. Two bedrooms w comfortable queen beds provide restful nights and two full baths allow quick prep for the next day. The decor is charming w displays of fine china and porcelain collections to admire in antique display cabinets. We would love to know the stories behind the collections. We hope to stay again at a future family gathering.

  • Comfort and Charm


    We love everything about this hideaway surrounded by woods but close to harbors, beaches, parks, shopping, and our family. Two comfy queen beds in separate bedrooms and two full baths accommodate our 4 perfectly but easily work for 6 too (queen airbed) with several settings for games, leisure and relaxation as well as meals. A family room with sofa recliners allows for movie watching and easy access to the deck patio, a perfect place for a barbecue and yard games. The lovely yard includes a big lawn, fish pool/fountain water feature and privacy plantings as well as flowers and shrubs.

    The indoor decor features display cabinets and antique furnishings with china and porcelain settings and collections- lovely to admire and wonder about the stories they tell. And if you must eat, the kitchen provides all the necessities and modern conveniences to make meal prep a quick and service an easy affair.
