Guestbook comments from the owner

Jenna and Scott were VERY welcoming. Upon my first contact with questions they were responsive and helpful. We had lots of changes in the number of people who were 'attending' our girls weekend and Jenna and Scott did everything possible to accommodate our needs. While the location of the house was not exactly what we were looking for and there was major construction going on in the front, the house itself and the backyard well made up for it. We were not visiting at a very opportune time of year to use the back yard, but if we are ever in the cities in the summer we will most definitely go back. Plenty of parking! The house had EVERYTHING we needed and more.

Nice old charm with modern updates

  • 4 of 5

Pretty interior, comfortable beds, great kitchen. Backyard could use a good clean up and gas grill wasn't working. Location was very convenient.

Not well maintained

  • 3 of 5

Started out with a call from Scott saying they had double booked our reservation for the first night. So after 2 nights in an adjacent property we had to move our 16 person group. The house was spacious and well located but poorly maintained. Junk everywhere in the basement area and outside. Stuff that was dangerous for little kids. After a rainstorm the basement area had lots of water on the floor making it unusable so we were short one sleeping area. Informed Scott about this but got no response

We had trouble obtaining keys and had to leave the house unlocked

Generally they seemed very disorganized

Fantastic Stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house was spacious and easily accommodated our large group. Located in a very safe neighborhood with access to trails and only a short drive from the city center, would highly recommend!
