Great trip!

The house is beautiful, very spacious and well kept. Owner was very thoughtful and left lights on for us for our late arrival. We would definitely stay here again.

Simply perfect!

  • 4 of 5

The home was simply perfect for our family. Charming, clean, and functional. By far better than a local hotel.

Nice antique home

  • 5 of 5

I really enjoyed my stay in this lovely home. It's very spacious, and the neighborhood is extremely quiet. The only bad thing is the water doesn't get as hot as I would have liked it to. There is nothing bad to say about this house. We only used one room, but the mattress was extremely comfortable. The house is very clean and up to par. I would definitely recommend this house to a friend. It's worth every penny that I spent. Janet is also very nice. She respected our privacy. She never barged in to see what we were doing, nor did she sit outside and stalk us. I've experienced invasion of privacy in a prior rental that's why I mentioned this. She was also available anytime you needed something. She checked in via Homeaway to make sure we were OK.
