Spacious and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! The pictures of this home don't do it justice. It is super spacious. We loved the bar area because we were all able to sit and talk, eat, play games while we watched the kids in the living room playing on the floor with their toys. John is extremely nice. We would definitely stay again!

Excellent!! Absolute must...

  • 5 of 5

Home is beautiful in and out. It was extremely spacious where as noone was bumping into one another or crowded in each space. Bedrooms were comfortable with plenty of closet and drawer space needed to unpack freely. Kitchen had all the kitchenware needed to cook and serve as if I were in my own home. The focus point for us was the large bar/stools area.. With all the modern technology today with cellphones, iPads, tablets, and laptops, everyone tends to end up in their own space with social media, playing games, emails, etc. Not at this home.. The large bar area kept everyone close together, socializing, drawing, coloring, playing games, cards, reminiscing for long periods of time without any electronics!! Meals were conveniently served there and with the two little ones laying on the the adjacent family room floor rug watching cartoons, clean up was a breeze.. The back deck was also a focal point for us. Large enough to accommodate everyone comfortably with two patio sets. We enjoyed the tranquil air while the kids blew bubbles. I also had my daily early morning coffee on deck and took photos of the deers and 5 turkeys passing through. The hot tub was delightfully ready upon arrival and the temperature of the house remained comfortable on both floors throughout our stay. They had family games available which was a plus. I had only taken two with me in which I didn't have to unload. Might I add, Renters should respect in keeping these games intact upon usage as you would in your own home. The laundry room was convenient as I was able to wash my linens upon removal and the beddings before placing them back. We absolutely enjoyed our stay and spent quality time with one another. Everyone including my grandchild are already asking when will we return.

John was great in communicating with me throughout the reservation process , prior to arrival, after arrival and departure. I only had to call him once for a question in which he answered right away.

Thank you John and Carol for sharing your home with us and the memories to carry with us...

Best regards

Vivian. S

Beautiful Spacious home

  • 5 of 5

The pictures don't do this house enough justice. Beautiful home that accoomadated our entire family. We had a total of 5 kids and 11 adults and we never felt crowded. The home is equipped with all the necessary kitchen utensils and the bar was well stocked with everything needed to make your own cocktails. The house was cleaned upon entry and The central A.C was a huge relief to come home to from the heated outdoors. We enjoyed the hot tub, and outdoor deck fully functionally for outdoor grilling. We saw a family of deers everyday in the backyard woods which was awesome to see. If you want me to nitpick at anything negative, The gas grill on the deck was dirty, we had to wash and scrub the grill clean and also unclog the gas burners because they weren't clean properly from prior usage so it didn't allow the flame to come on ! other than that we have no other negative comments about the home. Will look into doing it again
