                                                              The house and grounds are delightful! It is a perfect retreat. The home is impeccably decorated and stocked with everything you need. The house can comfortably accommodate a larger group. Our family of 4 stayed just downstairs.

                                                              It is a short walk to town and a short drive to DeSoto State Park and Falls. Thank you for a perfect stay.

Everything was so tastefully decorated and we felt that this could be our "home." The gardens were wonderful even for winter. You will not be disappointed staying here.

                                                              Beautiful House and Location

                                                              There is so much to say about this house. It was utmost beautiful and the location was breathtaking! Every time we took a stroll outside of the house we find some unique and beautiful. The chapel was breathtaking and serene! House was clean. The color scheme brought everything together to make this a special place. We had some much room to relax and enjoy around the fireplace. We have already planning another race adventure so that we can stay in this house. Desoto Falls was 10 minutes away and was able to visit. We walked to Wildflower Café. It was delicious! We are looking forward to staying here again next year! Thank you for letting us stay at your house. WE ABSOLUTELY ENJOYED IT!!!

                                                              Very relaxing!

                                                              I needed to get away from town to study for an extremely important board exam. This was the perfect spot. Very consistent and fast internet. Very homey feel. Beautiful surroundings and close to good food when I was ready to get out. Would definitely stay again!

                                                              Fabulous place!
