Good location and great fit for the family.
Wedding weekend, so we were there just to lay our heads after a busy weekend. Perfect fit the family and parking was great for all of the out of town drivers.
Thanks and we enjoyed our stay! Very accommodating with check-in!
Our family had a great time.
We loved looking around this fascinating house. The original floor plan is exactly like a home one of my sisters lived in for many years in Waterloo, Iowa. One more bed instead of the hide-a-bed would have served our 10 people better. Our kids and grand kids played games by the hour and well into the night.
Thank you for a good experience in our first house rental.
Charming and Relaxing
We enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect for us and centrally located to visiting our Family
It’s a historic property. I didn’t know that basement bathroom doesn’t have a door. Other than that.
We would leave at 7am and get back 8pm. So didn’t spend much time at the house. The owners were very attentive.
Quirky, charming and accomadating multi-use home
This full of character "1930's-esq" home is charming. The owners are extremely accomadating and the home couldn't be cleaner. The home is definitely used for several functions evidenced by commercial sprinkler fittings and multiple mounted fire extinguishers. Quirky home furnishings including a converted garage meeting room with projector and screen, basement massage table and kids "bar" area. The only showers are 2 adjacent camp/locker room like showers in the basement. The view and location is a bit unfortunate due to a power station immediately adjacent on one side and a busy street on the other. If you are looking for quirky, charming, accommodating, immaculate stay, this is the place!
The house welcomed a family reunion/memorial celebration with plenty of space
Our family hosted a memorial celebration with several family members in attendance.
The house had plenty of sleeping space/bathroom facilities for the 5 adults/2 toddlers staying there. It also had a large parking lot out back which took care of all parking needs.
The house was well stocked with every kitchen item you needed. One thing that would have been nice to have was a dishwasher, although we used many disposable items which helped.
We were not able to connect to Wifi, and there was no cable/satellite connections. (owners said this was going to be addressed).
The owners were very responsive to all of our questions with immediate responses.
The house was in excellent working order and was very clean!
The house was the perfect place for us and would recommend it to anyone.
