  • Cute spot for leaf seekers


    Love how this home is nestled in the woods yet close to town for a walk to shops, trails, etc. Home could be cleaned better, specifically cobwebs and spiders along corners and especially upper rooms. We appreciated the fans & AC unit as our Fall weekend was a humid, hot one!

  • Smells of Mold


    The place was decent however 2 of the beds are futons and very uncomfortable. The house smelled different in every room and not in a good way. Gnats, so many gnats everywhere it was hard to even eat inside. Kitchen stunk the worst. Had high hopes for this place being close to our event but unfortunately we won't be back.

    Hi Paul, we take guest feedback seriously and passed your comments on to the homeowner who would like to share the following:
    - We apologize for any inconvenience you experienced during your stay, and we appreciate your feedback, as it allows us to make necessary improvements to ensure a more pleasant experience for all our guests. Prior to your stay, the home had some plumbing issues, which were repaired in time for your reservation. The smell that you referenced was from different scents that had been used to help eliminate the odor that had been left behind from the plumbing issue, as noted this has since been repaired, in addition, the lingering "smell" has also been remedied and is no longer present. Additionally, the issues you reported about gnats have also been remedied to ensure future guests do not share the same experience.
    We do all we can to make the best possible stay, and we look forward to this property hosting many satisfied guests.

  • Broken toilet


    Mattress was comfortable, great location to wineries/boat tour. Only downside is septic smell in the house and when you flushed the toilet waste water would seep out from the base. I also emailed the owner asking if there was a grill and never received a response

    Hi Vanessa, thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. Your feedback is truly appreciated, and we value your perspective. The homeowner would like to share the following: "We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the fantastic location and the nearby wineries/boat tour. Your appreciation means a lot to us. We deeply regret the inconvenience caused by the leak you experienced during your stay. Rest assured, the issue was promptly addressed; the toilet seal was replaced the day after you departed. Additionally, we had a plumber come in to snake the line, and there was no detectable odor afterward. The home is now in perfect condition and ready to welcome our next guests. We appreciate your understanding, and we're glad to report that the problem has been fully resolved. Your feedback helps us ensure that all our guests have a pleasant and trouble-free experience. Thank you once again for your valuable input, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future."

  • Wonderful home


    We enjoyed our stay very much! Cozy and quiet. Our family reunion was so much better because we had the chance to share this home in each other's company.

  • Mostly Positive Experience



    Pet friendly


    Full kitchen

    Close to everything, but still secluded

    Guest contacts for resolving issues

    Cute, quaint decor

    WiFi and SmartTVs


    Huge spider in the shower

    Had to sign into my own Netflix and Pandora accounts to use smart tvs

    Missing light fixture (exposed lightbulb) in hallway between bathroom and bedroom

    Some of the smaller details just seemed cheap and not well done, like some of the shelving.

    Could have used coasters for in the living room...I was afraid to set a drink on the live edge coffee table because I didn't want it to leave rings.

    Wanted to sit in the swing chair in the bedroom but was afraid that it wasn't anchored to any beams because it made noises when I pulled on it.

    Overall, it was a positive experience and I would stay there again but it would be better if some minor adjustments were made.
