Perfect for a family gathering
The property is beautiful and extremely well maintained. The owner is very gracious, replies immediately to questions, and very accommodating. A five star property offered by a five star owner.
We were blown away with the beauty of the property as well as the uniqueness of the home! It was so relaxing!
The layout was perfect for our family with plenty of room for everyone to sleep. We had a large group so the multiple rooms, bunk house, and multiple bathrooms was great to have! We loved having plenty of space to just sit and talk on the screened in porch.
We were gathering due to our fathers funeral in Winnsboro and Mark was so understanding and supportive.....he was a joy to work with! You can’t go wrong with renting this property!! Thank Mark for a wonderful and blessed time there!
Lovely retreat like setting!
The Veranda is a lovely retreat! The main house is beautiful with many places to sit and visit while looking at the gorgeous views.
Great Family Reunion Venue!
Our family held a large family reunion at the Veranda thi summer, and it was absolutely ideal! Multiple families, littel kids to seniors, plenty to do and space to spread out. A few minor annoyances came up, but Mark was quick to help resolve them. Highly recommended!
Perfect setting for a large family gathering.
The Veranda was the perfect setting for our 2017 Thanksgiving gathering. Our family- ages 2 to 87- never ran out of things to do: from s’mores at the fire pit to catch and release on the private lake. The commercial kitchen was an amazing place to prepare our Thanksgiving dinner. The owner was very responsive to any questions. Perfect, quiet getaway!
This is a beautiful property. We fell in love with its charm and high quality. It was perfect !
The Veranda was perfect for our extended family retreat. Everything was beautifully appointed, clean and well maintained. We enjoyed the quiet privacy with the many choices of activities: swimming, basketball, fishing, sitting on the porch swing and walking on the trails.
For me the best things were the opportunities to reconnect with our children and grandchildren and watching their reconnecting with each other. The Veranda was a perfect place for our getting together. All weekend long we watched as our family members had opportunities to come all together or to break up into smaller groups to spend great times together.... our cameras are all full of memory making moments.
I can't say enough about how wonderful this experience was. Mark Bunting was a great host. The Veranda is breathtakingly beautiful.
