Our group stayed for 9 relaxing days. We could not have more pleased with the accommodations. We found it to be so relaxing we were quite content to often stay on the porch in the rocking chairs. Plenty of restaurants and activities nearby. The owners are wonderful hosts and I would highly recommend a stay here for anyone of any age group looking for the perfect place to relax. We plan on making it an annual visit.

A beautiful property that promotes relaxation. Tastefully decorated, nice large kitchen. Bedrooms were awesome. Nice pool to have fun in.

Restful and Inviting!

  • 5 of 5

Sixteen of us sat for evening meals that we prepared in a large comfortable kitchen after spending our days poolside or hanging out on the wrap-around porch. We had expected to do some sight-seeing, but no one wanted to wander off. We were content to stay and visit with each other. Our hosts provided us with the perfect backdrop for our family reunion. We all look forward to coming back next year.

Magical Fun House- Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

Magical house. Huge kitchen, lovely outdoor spaces and quiet areas to gather. Could not have been a better place to have our family reunion. The rooms are all different and interesting, with comfortable beds and lovely decor. Brantley made us feel right at home, and was available for any issues. This location is quiet and private, with lovely rooms and ideal for a big family of grown children and grandchildren to have a reunion.
