What a beautiful home, from the cozy outside fireplace that sits right next to the soothing sound of the waterfall. Being surrounded by such beauty was a gift. Thank you for opening your home to us. We feel truly blessed.

A nice cottage walkable to down town

  • 5 of 5

The Green House is a very pleasant cottage. It is definitely more like a house than a cabin. Our favorite things about the Green House were: 1. The quiet location on a little used road. 2. The back yard is peaceful with an outdoor living space and a small waterfall within view. 3. The beds had high quality mattresses! 4. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked. 5. It is handicapped accessible which may be a nice feature for some. 6. The owner is very organized and responsive. 7. My husband was very impressed by the picture quality of the TV. I don't think there are really downsides, so much as maybe "quirks", which you can read from other reviews, such as the open shower. It's definitely walkable to town, although there is a gentle hill involved, so it may not be an easy walk for some. Overall we really enjoyed our stay, it really is as advertised.

Wonderful, relaxing stay!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was situated beautifully beside a small stream and pond in a quiet area. It is very conveniently located near a grocery store and is definitely walkable to town (about 1 mile but a fairly easy and pretty walk). Leslie (the owner) was responsive and always answered my questions within 24-48 hrs. We had a great stay and would definitely return!

We just stayed at the Green House and cannot say enough about the whole place. The property is just beautiful and am sure it is more beautiful in the spring. The appliances in the kitchen were good and we appreciated all the extras that were provided such as cleaning products, toilet paper, plenty of towels, and garbage bags. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes as well as silverware and utensils. The deck was outstanding. We were all so happy to have good weather so that we could enjoy the deck. Sat outside most nights with a good fire and watched TV.

Now can we make a couple of suggestions: You cannot open the refrigerator door all the way and it made it difficult to put large containers in it. Maybe cut out doorway a little? If you can, please upgrade the glasses situation as there were not too many there. We did bring plastic ones with us tho. There were not very many lids for the pans. We had to make do with saucers for the pans. There was also no cover for the small grinder. Was hoping to grind up some pecans, but had to use a knife. You need to get a better can opener in there too. Plus some better potholders. Think the most important thing you could do is get rid of the round kitchen garbage can and get a rectangular one. It is very difficult to empty the can when the bag is full. One nice thing tho is the place to take the bags! The carpet in the living room should be replaced either with another carpet or wood flooring/laminate. You need to get some more lights in the living room too as it seems kind of dark in there. Speaking of dark, a couple of the outside floodlights need to be replaced as they were not working.

We don't want to sound negative because the house was very nice. We would definitely rent it again! Easy to get to and very close to town.
