very nice rental

  • 5 of 5

We recently rented form Gary and couldnt have been more pleased with the property. It is very clean and has an old type of charm to it. It was supplied with everything we needed for our stay. It was close to several places to eat or have a drink. We would definitely stay again if we are in the area. Dont forget to go to Gary's icecream parlor. We made a couple of trips down to it...Wonderful!
