Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home as a central gathering place for our out-of-town family. It worked well for us and had lots of room for gathering as a large group and also little living areas for smaller groups to hang out together. There were plenty of beds and futons. Nataliya was a great hostess and actually left some marshmallows and chocolate for us to roast smore's at the fire pit by the pond. I was thankful for the cleanliness of the entire place and also the thoughtful little touches of care like the mints and wonderfully smelling soaps, etc. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Beautiful property in secluded area

  • 4 of 5

We came in at night and it was so dark but the house looked so welcoming when we came up over the hill. Lights were on and Nataliya had the furnace going for us. The house is large and looked just like the pictures on the site. It was wonderful for our family to be together for a few days for our son's wedding and there was plenty of room. There is only one bedroom with a door. The other bedroom is large and the bed sits way back from the doorway so there is still plenty of privacy. Lots of couches and futons and a bed in the studio apt. for people to sleep. If people have serious privacy issues, this may not be the place but it was fine for us. Would love to have had time to explore the property more. The pond had a canoe and dock for fishing and it looked like there were some trails to explore. Watched the sunrise in the morning from our bed upstairs in the studio and saw the stars at night. Gorgeous place and Nataliya was a delight to work with.
