Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for allowing us staying over the weekend at your humble home. I really impress with all the antiques collected in this home, the typewriter and the phone really caught my eyes, took a picture on both of them. We had a lot of group activities, did not use the TV at all. Basement however, kind of scary haha. Overall it is a pleasant stay and may think we will have an opportunity returning here in the future.

Fantastic!!!!

  • 5 of 5

It was all and MORE than expected. It was like stepping back into my childhood or my parents childhood. It was spacious. We had our son and wife and 2 year old with us (who just happened to turn 2 at the Victorian house). She loved the freedom of all the "paths" through the house and having front and rear stairs. Our first night, my wife and I arrived alone and I admit at night, it was spooky. My wife even asked me to accompany her to the bathroom since we stayed in the bedroom farthest from the bathroom. After our son's arrival, the place warmed up and felt very comfortable (I think the ghosts of past tenants were VERY friendly). The host was very accomodating and our damage deposit was refunded promptly. I will recommend staying there and tasting a bit of the past. My only suggestion for improvement would be a few more plastic containers for leftovers. Thank you so much for letting us stay.

It's a really nice and clean house

  • 5 of 5

We had a New Year's Eve here, and it's really a nice house for ten people. Especially the kitchen is super clean and bid, we love it. The living room is also big enough for ten people hang out there. It is definitely a wonderful house for a vacation. Recommend!!!

Christmas Stay

  • 4 of 5

We met up with family from several directions for a Christmas stay. The weather was rainy off and on, so our time was mostly spent indoors. There was plenty of room and lots of seating for all our needs. The bedrooms were plenty spacious as well. Everything we needed was there. It was great to have the towels and linens, soaps and shampoos, etc. provided.The kitchen had all the equipment we needed. When we did venture out, we found what we needed close by, as in groceries and restaurants. The town is quite hilly, but pleasant for walking. We had a couple of toddlers, so had to make sure breakables were out of reach and had to watch them around the hot radiators and pipes, but they had lots of floor space for play. The floors upstairs required attention in walking in spots, but were still quite beautiful. The directions provided for the household were quite complete and helpful. We had a lovely time and enjoyed our stay thoroughly.

I'm glad you watched the little ones around the radiators, we always warn families to be careful ahead of time due to the antique nature of the home. It was a pleasure to have you and we hope you come stay with us again.
