Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay here in your very comfortable and clean home. It was the perfect place for multiple families with small kids. It's very child-proof which takes some of the stress out of traveling with little ones! And it's so warmly decorated! We loved it! Thank you and Merry Christmas!

Perfect for multiple generations

  • 5 of 5

We were there in July-August 2016. We've stayed at about 15 Home Away/VRBOS and I can tell you this one really raised the bar for cleanliness. We loved the layout. I, my adult son and family, and my adult daughter, all had total privacy. The master bedroom on the upper level is HUGE. The decor shows someone took a lot of time in furnishing the home. It is beautiful. What I particularly loved was the dining room table. I was able to lay out a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle at one end but still seated all seven of us easily. The layout of the area is almost a loop. Every time we went out we saw something new. The bakery? It called our names continually. We had a beautiful birthday cake from there. We enjoyed the grill and purchased meat in the area - delicious. The sidewalks roll up pretty early. The manager was always available and helpful. We highly recommend "Like Home."

Like home

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Like HomeGuesthouse. There was plenty of room for our two families, the best part was sitting on the porch seeing the Amish and Mennonite buggies going by. The house is so neat and tidy. Thank you for allowing us to rent your home and we hope to return someday.
