Old, smelly and unkempt.

  • 2 of 5

The house was old (not a problem in itself) but very musty. The garage was infested with flies and rotten food which infiltrated the area. Air conditioning was spotty and loud. It did not seem as though the house was cleaned before we got there. In contrast, the pool was a delight.The owner was very nice and cooperative but it is not likely we would stay there again even given the chance.

Unique house that is in need of maintenance.

  • 2 of 5

There are 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms as listed. What I would consider the master bedroom used the bathroom across the hallway. All 4 other bedrooms had bathrooms in their rooms. Art work is not suitable for young children.

The pool was nice but we cleaned it several times during our 7 day stay.

This home should not be listed as a vacation home.

Perfect getaway! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

  • 4 of 5

We rented this so we could be down for a family reunion. We rented from Friday until Monday. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the pool. We had several families that all stayed together. It was perfect amount of bedrooms and bathrooms! We had 5 sets of families. Plenty of bathrooms for everyone to have plenty to use and not have to wait on one! We had a little hiccup on hot water in two showers but Laura the owner fixed it quickly and we had hot water. She was kind enough to invite us over to see all the baby animals she is rehabilitating and the kids absolutely loved it. We utilized the bonfire the last night and made s’mores and everyone enjoyed that too! Very close to everything but still have the feeling of country! There are some places that deliver and the stores are all within minutes away. A few adults enjoyed the brewery down the street. It was a great short family vacation! Thanks for the hospitality! We thoroughly enjoyed our time!

Historic and wonderfully eclectic and comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic time spent at Wanderland! We were there for my husband’s 50th birthday and bourbon tour. What a unique home and atmosphere. Felt like being transported back in time yet with amazing and eclectic art throughout the home. Plenty of space for all! Thank you Laura, looking forward to coming back again!

Great space for seven friends!

  • 4 of 5

The house is set up perfectly for what we needed - three single friends and two couples. Everyone had their own bathroom and plenty of space. The house had everything we needed! bathrooms are a bit small and dark (to be expected in a home this age!) but well equipped. Great outdoor covered area for lounging and looking out for raccoons. We were bummed we didn't see any!
