Quiet and clean with plenty of room

  • 4 of 5

We had a pleasant stay and the house was very well located for our purposes. The owner lives next door and was very responsive. Everything was as represented in the listing. We were, however, disappointed with the toe (2) queen beds as the mattresses and box springs were quite old and in need of replacement. They sagged in the middle and caused enough discomfort (lower back pain) that we had to cut our stay short by 2 days. The single is a trundle bed which also not comfortable.

Owner's Response: It always bothers me greatly when a tenant indicates they're not 100% satisfied. That said, I'd like to add that the Q mattress in the master was new as of June of 2013, and this is the first complaint I've received about it. But I plan to ask my current and future tenants their opinion of it, and replace if need be. the F mattress in the 2nd bedroom is a futon mattress bought in June 2014. I do have a feather topper for it, but that was out being dry-cleaned. My bad!! the 3rd bedroom only comes with a trundle or bunk beds, as indicated in the description of the house on the listing. we had 1 or 2 of our grown sons stay with us for a few days to a week?

Lovely house and location

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week in the house over Christmas while visiting family in the area. It rained the entire week, and so we were forced to spend a fair amount of time indoors with an active 6-year-old. The house was immaculate and spacious, and provided room for our child to play while still affording us some space of our own. Everything was in excellent working order, and we only wished the weather had been nicer in order to take better advantage of the big back yard and the charming pond at the front of the property. We only saw our hosts occasionally, but they were responsive immediately to the few questions we had. Overall, an excellent place to spend some time.

Tranquil cottage with amazing hosts in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay. Mariella greeted us upon our arrival and had a bunch of goodies stocked in the kitchen for us. She could not have been more hospitable and when I mentioned some local food I was interested in getting, she went and got some from her kitchen and insisted we take it! The property is extremely well maintained, clean and comfortable. Organic sheets on the bed were a nice surprise! The location is great, very peaceful, just a lovely property. There is a horse in a field across from the house and Mariella gave my daughter some carrots to feed him which was a big hit with this toddler! My husband, daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and we'll be back.

Great place

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed at the mini retreat for 2 nights. The property is beautiful; a smallish pond with a creek running behind it. I imagine it's even nicer in the spring/summer/fall. Our stay was in the winter. The house was very clean and nicely decorated. The heat worked well. The internet and dish were a nice feature. The kitchen is nicely stocked. We especially appreciated the nice set of cooking knives (so rare to find this in a rental property!). Our hosts were very gracious, providing some snacks and provisions upon our arrival and checking in once during the stay.
