  • The perfect house!

    "This was our second time staying in this beautiful home! The house is great for large groups. Plenty of rooms throughout so everyone has their own space. The house is starting to show to age and wear. The walls could use a fresh coat of paint. But overall still very pleased with this home. It has everything! The location is also great. We were able to walk right downtown for shopping, lunch and even hit a local winery!"

  • Perfect weekend getaway with the guys

    "We rented this house for a bachelor party in April 2015. The plan was to get a house where we could get out of the city for a couple days and just reconnect with friends, drink beers by the fire, play some pickup basketball/volleyball and watch some movies. This house worked out perfectly for us! The movie theater room has a great projector that hooks up to a Blu-Ray(which I didn't notice in the description)/DVD player with awesome surround sound and reclining lazyboys. We were originally psyched to play some Pool and Foosball after reading about it online, but the sport court really ended up holding our attention for the majority of the weekend. Perfect for basketball, volleyball, and even a dodgeball game. Music can be piped in to the gym as well, which was great. Nice big kitchen had everything we needed as well and was a perfect hub in the middle of the house for people to mingle around. Wifi worked great once we found the box and plugged it in, and after a couple hours of heating up the hot tub, it was a great relaxation spot as well. We all talked on the last night about how much we enjoyed the house and location, and how we should all come back in a year or two either as the same group or with our wives for a low key weekend. Thanks again for listing this place!"
