Why the Owner Chose Villa Grande: We fell in love with the Old Villa Grande Hotel property the moment we saw it. It was in terrible condition. We have been lovingly restoring and remodelling it. Our plan is to live in Villa Grande forever. The Old Goathouse was our little vacation getaway which we remodelled for ourselves prior to moving to the area fulltime. It is adorable! We love it and you will too.
