We thoroughly enjoyed this house! Host was lovely and responsive to our needs. The lightning bug show in the field at night is not to be missed!

Absolutely wonderful experience!!

  • 5 of 5

When we got this rental, we knew it was outside of town, but did not realize how remote it really was. You are about 15-20 minutes from towns which gives that “away from everything” feel. Being out in the country, you can expect to see deer and all of those beautiful stars that typically elude us in the cities. Before check in, I had made a request that they did not have to do, but they did and went above and beyond in doing it. When we walked inside the house was warm and cozy, with great decor. This house has certainly had renovations done within the past few years. The hot tub was lovely. The shower water was hot. The beds were comfortable. We played monopoly one night in the dining area. They really make sure you are taken care of when you are staying with them. They have board games, they have movies, they have all the standard kitchen must haves in order to make a great meal. We will certainly consider them again if we are in the area.

The house is so nicely decorated. The hot tub was great and the house had everything we could need! Towels, coffee, kitchen appliances. etc. Made our stay very comfortable. And so close to the wineries!

Though the point of a cabin getaway isn't to be connected to the internet, it was really disconcerting to not have access to the wifi as we had no phone service! It was a great place for our mini honeymoon! Clean, uncluttered, and stocked with everything you need!
