Wonderful Getaway Just Far Enough From The City

  • 5 of 5

The home is spacious with views all around the property. There was plenty of wildlife to keep us entertained as we relaxed on one of the three porches. There are Canada Geese, Snow Geese, Guinea Hens, Peacocks, and a rooster that will help wake you up in the mornings. There is a pond on one side of the property and a little creek that runs through on the other side. The beds are incredibly comfortable, great for sleeping in. This is a special place for us. Two years ago we stayed here for my brother’s graduation and got to hang out with the grandparents. This year, as we came to visit my brother again, my 15 month old baby took his first steps. This place will always have a special place in our hearts.

Beautiful inviting home with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

Perfect getaway for our family! Close enough to lots of attractions but far enough away from the hustle and bustle! My entire family is begging to return soon. Definitely one of our top favorite getaway spots!

Little slice of Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We recently enjoyed our second visit to the property. Dana and Terri call it 'The Guest House' for a reason - you feel like guests! They make sure you are settled and have everything you need. Our special gift was the fresh eggs they left for us. Our pups thoroughly enjoyed running and exploring the property. We enjoyed sitting under the big tree reading our books escaping the hustle and bustle of regular life. We also drove into town to enjoy some of the best BBQ!

Highly, highly recommend this slice of heaven!

relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a 4 day music festival that was about 30 minutes away. We both loved the property, and would stay here again. Only a few miles from town, but feels very remote and private.

House arranged great. It had all the right amenities. Loved the geese, peacocks, and others. Caught fish in pond and creek. 6 year old grandson had fun riding his bike and fishing and swinging.
