Only thing I might add though, is that the actual toilet facility in the master bedroom left a lot to be desired, the throne was encased in a very small "closet' (I know-water closet) which had no socially redeeming value---even a simple wall hanging would have at least made it tolerable--that's why they only get a 4.99 rating!

                                                                          Christy R.

The first stay was 5 years ago and the home is still in great shape, very well kept. We had a girls weekend for 13 women and it's the perfect venue with 2 great gathering spaces, the kitchen is perfect for all cooking together, and plenty of sleeping rooms and bathrooms. There is a huge bar and a walk out to the covered patio. The property is so beautiful in the fall with the leaves changing. We enjoyed the fire pit and deck space as well. This house is so well equipped with everything we needed. The owner and prop managers are great, very responsive and helpful. I highly recommend this home for a multi-family gathering or for a bunch of friends to have a great stay together!!

                                                                          We stayed in early September, and had lots of fun, and lots of sun. It was beautiful. I might need to do this annually.
