Guest comment entered by manager
The house was wonderful. It was big enough as well as informal enough so that it was easy for us to live there in a relaxed style. The modern bathrooms were good and the kitchen seemed quite up to date with sufficient equipment and supplies for us. Thanks for helping to make this a memorable vacation.
