Off the beaten path...
Wonderful cozy home in a rural setting. We really enjoyed the chickens, bunnies, and donkeys. The soaking tub was delightful and nice to lounge in after a long drive. The owner Valerie is very hospitable and gives special attention to details of her property! We will be returning to the quaint little home.
Stay was comfortable and friendly. First time I ever rented a place that came with pets.
WE' LL BE BACK !!!
"We'll be back!!!" That was the consensus of our entire family - kids, young working moms, and grandparents. These folks, mind you, range in age from 3 to 55 years old - male and female...Being a thrifty, and somewhat vocal, night-owlish, venturesome bunch, we were athirst for somewhere to stay that was "out of the norm". Checking into a hotel late in the evening, toting in luggage for 9 people , was about as promising a "holiday" or "comfort" as driving straight through on our 800 mile journey with 4 kids. We knew the key to a relaxed trip was to decompress first, somewhere along the way.
Valerie's place provided the private, quiet, atmosphere we were hoping for, and then some. It was secluded enough that we didn't have to worry about waking anyone while getting unloaded and settled in for the rest of the night. It was refreshing to have the extra touches like lights on and air going, a cold fridge and ice. It was eye-catching, but not overblown. You could see how much thoughtfulness and work was (still is) being put into the property. This enterprising lady, and her helpers, have managed to curate something unique, but easily changeable...kaleidoscopic, yet linear, at the same time.
I can imagine the transformation from a quiet place for painting, writing, etc. for one person, into a vivid, lively workshop forum. Yet, the clean, roomy rental felt like a real home. Many treasures from world travels were displayed, and that, along with the penchant for the quirky, showed their ability to meld all the original, artistic, chromatic decor ...it was fascinating. Or as my 12 yr old granddaughter so aptly put it, "Now these people know how to decorate!!!"
Whether you face the same dilemma we did while traveling, or have other criteria, you should expand your possibilities. Consider something different -like the spirited Rural Retreat In Rolling Hills! ...As I stood in the quiet peacefulness outside before we left, watching the morning fog roll out and hearing the birds chirping, I knew ...we will visit this place again.
Thanks, y'all, from Ms.
