We enjoyed our stay at this charming location. The Franke's and the resident cat 'Daisy' were warm and welcoming. The location is very quite and relaxing. We enjoyed long walks, sitting by the pond and bike rides.

Quiet Peaceful Get-Away

  • 5 of 5

This quiet spacious property offered a nice get-away. The owners warmly welcome us, as well as their pets. The unit was very clean and ready to settle in for our month visit. Enjoyed our time being outdoors walking, sunning, or sitting by the fire. We enjoyed our month and meeting good people.
