Serene, but close to it all

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay it this beautiful gem. The unit has everything needed for a comfortable stay, and the artwork is amazing! We enjoyed wine and cheese on the patio under the shade of the beautiful trees and among the beautiful art installations. Restaurants are an easy walk and many trail heads are close by. Kevan is a pleasure to talk with and is a wealth of information! We will definitely return!

Eclectic Property in a Great Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a very comfortable stay. The hosts were very accommodating in terms of letting us check in early and finding us a high chair, gate and crib for our toddler. The house is close to the river, public library and Pearl Street Mall. We'd highly recommend this property.

As others mentioned, it can get hot since there's no AC but fans are provided.
