Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was fantastic! This the best house we've stayed in to date. It was the perfect size for our family, has great amenities, and is in a great location.

We enjoyed it so well that we booked it for next year!

Perfect for our family coming together for my sons wedding.

  • 4 of 5

Overall, property was very good. Limited dinnerware for a home that sleeps 16. Some beds very tall without stepstool. Had some guests who had trouble getting into them. For the most part, property had what we needed though sometimes very hard to find.

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It had so much room for my four siblings, their spouses and their kids. I can’t say enough wonderful things! All the bedrooms were huge. The pool was great, the fire pit fun and the kids enjoyed the pool table and volleyball net! We will definitely use this house again for the next family reunion.

perfect for family gathering

  • 5 of 5

Convenient to shopping, restaurants, etc. Well maintained property with plenty of room to spread out and many amenities. We were 12 with local family visiting during the day. Everything was as we hoped and expected based on the listing. Would definitely consider again.

Perfect spot for a group gathering

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for Memorial weekend with a group of parents traveling for our kid's sports tournament. This is a great house for a large group. The pool and outside area is perfect! It has a nice pool, huge yard for games, patio furniture and a firepit table. It is well maintained and really added to the experience. The house is very nice with lots of room. It was clean and the kitchen had plenty of items needed for cooking meals. They also have a huge mudroom with an extra fridge and freezer with room for coolers, extra items etc. The owner was very attentive and great to work with. I would recommend this home for anyone looking for a great place with a large group.

Son graduated college and we had grandparents with us. Had a great time. John was very responsive to questions. We enjoyed the outdoor fire pit in the evenings.
