Great location...with family amenities

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the Fish Inn Bike Inn over spring break. We choose this private home based on its central location to town/outdoor activities and the onsite family friendly games.

The kids loved the "play room" garage with ping pong and corn hole game. They also enjoyed the extra space on the inside. The three levels made it perfect when the family needed to spread out and have their own space. A lot of times some of our kids were in the lower level watching TV or playing a card game on the game table and my wife and I were upstairs sitting in the living room talking. The town park behind the house (half a block away) was something our younger kids really enjoyed.

Perfectly located only a few blocks from the main street. It was super convenient to walk downtown to grab a bight to eat or go out for a nice dinner.

Even through this is a historic home it has all the modern "creature comforts" that the whole family will enjoy. The wifi speed was great.

We would definitely recommend this home to families or a group of friends coming together to enjoy the outdoor activities Sisters has to offer.
