Absolutely wonderful stay in the house. We loved the decks, and it was a great place to spend the weekend. The swimming was great, and the canoe was a wonderful addition. The kitchen was great and had everything you needed and more. This was the best vacation house we've had in years! We will definitely be returning!

Pat said, We really did enjoy your house. You certainly tried to provide everything we would need. The dock, the canoe and the decks are outstanding. What beautiful views! ( But where were the fish?) The younger 2 liked the yard a lot and your deer. We usually go to Hilton Head, The Outer Banks, or Destin so this was a totally different experience. It was a lot more casual than usual which was nice. The closeness of Monticello... would make long weekends possible... I'll get back with some photos. I appreciate how quickly you responded each time . The process was easy, and efficient. Thank you for your help Rachel. -2009 Bud and Barb said, Dear Rachel, As last year, the stay was wonderful and even more relaxing as we got to see friends and have friends visit. We did use the canoe and that was a welcomed addition. You have not missed anything in making a vacation easy and relaxing by providing all the needs, conveniences and more, than one would find at home. The location and setting is just icing on the cake. You can also anticipate us returning next year as we look at a schedules in the very near future. Best personal regards, -2009 Dorothy said, We had a great time! The deck was awesome to sit on in the morning and drink coffee. We ate outside every night - lot's of room and no bugs or flies to bother us! The king size bed was great and there was a TV and DVD player in every room. The location was good and fairly close to everything you needed. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. Everything was very clean. -2009 David said, We had a great time. The Bay View Cottage was a really nice place. -2009 Erica said, This place was amazing! Everything we needed was there and plenty of room for everyone to sleep, relax, and enjoy. The deck areas were huge and we used them the entire weekend. We will definitely be back and recommend to anyone looking to spend a weekend in Monticello.
