Wonderful, exciting Property, Close to Tiger Creek Sanctuary
We had an amazing time in the area and at the property. Very close to Tiger Creek, Cat Sanctuary....where we have donated to save the large cats for years. The Sanctuary is definitely worth the trip. Loved the view and the quietness of the home. The storm we had on Saturday night was amazing. We are from CA, and we definitely do not get storms like this one was. Very comfortable and roomy. Thank you for sharing your home.
Everything was just lovely, in spite of considerable rain. Thanks, Hal and Jane, for letting us pretend for a few days that your beautiful house was ours!
Stayed here for the weekend while attending a local bbq event. Stay was great, home was very clean and the pond was a nice addition. Will definitely come back when we have more time to stay and enjoy the peaceful location.
Had a wonderful time at your home. Very relaxing and serene setting. We were able to watch the birds from the deck. I hope to be able to come back and stay again soon. (My only problem was with the driveway... my car was scraping bottom on in a couple of places where the ruts are a little deep.).
Thank you for allowing people to stay in your beautiful home.
We have stayed here 3 times in the last couple of years. The house is beautiful and spacious and has everything you need to prepare food!
We will be back for sure
Beautiful home in a peaceful surrounding
This property was perfect for a getaway. We were just a group of women who wanted to get together for a weekend. We did not want to leave. We are thinking of making this an annual retreat. Though I did not meet the owners, the email exchanges that we had were quite helpful. We will be back.
