Top-Notch, Luxury Home for a Family Getaway!
We were looking for a long weekend getaway for our family after being cooped up in the City and schooling/working from home during the COVID crisis.....we thought this property might be right. We could not have been happier with everything about this beautiful, expansive, super-clean home and its adjoining property. Kudos to the owners for both being super-attentive and also for the design and care they've put into this house. It is huge; elegant; comfy; well-equipped; clean; and has some extra touches that just make it a cut above. For example, the screened-in porch with great furniture and throw blankets to take off the Spring chill......or how about the bonus playroom above the garage that has dress-up costumes on hooks and plenty of other playstuff for the youngest kids......or maybe the hot tub (which is now screened-in) that has plenty of towel hooks and is bug-free at night. We adults used the main living room upstairs while our teens had the large, living room on the lower level for gaming and movies (and sleeping in the lower bedrooms). Our folks and brother came for a day visit and the folks ended up staying since we had two beautiful bedrooms upstairs which we weren't even using (the kids wanted to sleep in the lower rooms). This place is top notch and we always appreciate owners who take great care as these folks do (thanks Joe and Rachel). We will be back......
Thank you, Joe, for your kind words. I really appreciate it. I’m so happy you chose our home for your getaway. You were a pleasure to host. I hope you’ll be back again in the future! Stay healthy and safe until then.
Not cheap but certainly worth the price for a large group to stay & play
I’ve never stayed in such a beautiful and well maintained property. My family wants to move here!🥳😋😛
Stunning home and location
If you like the tranquility of a rural area with an easy drive to a metro area (Madison), this is one heck of a place to stay. First the property. It's part of a 600+ acre property, part cornfield and part forested with ponds and marsh...an entire ecosystem. There were serene walking paths around the property, all relatively flat and easy to navigate (after all, this the midwest). During one walk, a couple of deer came out of nowhere and scampered off...what was notable was that one of these gals was massive, nearly horse sized! Made our hearts jump! The immediate acreage surrounding the home is beautifully landscaped and well maintained, with a nice fire pit steps from the home.
The home is big. But more important, the home is well designed. The main floor open living room, dining, and open kitchen is a bright room with floor to ceiling panoramic windows. The downstairs is a comfortable space as well. Plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms. The bedrooms either have their own on-suite or it's own lavatory, just sharing the sink/shower area. The beds were incredibly comfortable. If you have a bad back, you'll enjoy your sleep here!
The rooms were all beautifully designed, from the furniture, fabrics, bedding, to the little things for guests. The kitchen is easy to make meals in. Lots of well maintained cookware, dishes, cutlerly, etc. Lots of herbs and spices stocked as well. The listing photos do not do it justice. Hands down this was the finest home rental we've experienced. Thanks Joe! Thanks Rachel!
Thank you, Leon!
You and your group were a pleasure to host! I’m glad you were able to get out and enjoy the property, with the wonderful weather we experienced while you were here.
I hope you’ll come back and stay with us again, here on Arington Tree Farm.
Happy New Year!
The Oak House Always Exceeds Expectations
We have traveled to the Oak House on several occasions to gather with family and friends. The setting, space, and care are extraordinary. On this trip, we especially appreciated the holiday decorations that allowed us to actually put presents under the tree to surprise the children in our group. A highlight of our trip is asking Joel Chesboro to share his many gifts in the kitchen to provide our meals - we all learn from watching him work and very much enjoy the outcome. There are many VRBOs but none like The Oak House. We already are looking for Spring dates. Thank you to everyone who makes the Oak House possible.
Sylvia, thank you for your gracious words. We all love having you here on the farm. You’re a pleasure to host, and Joel and Rory thoroughly enjoy their time preparing meals for you and yours. We would love to have you back in the Spring! Thank you for being a loyal and wonderful guest. It’s people like you that make the world of VRBO the most fun! Merry Christmas!
Our family had an outstanding holiday gathering at the Oak House. The home is spacious, beautiful and welcoming. Each floor was well designed with plenty of room and beds for adults and kids. Loads of activity space and toys for the kids along with board games that we all enjoyed. Abundant amount of TV’s to match all interest levels.
Though the weather was a bit of a challenge, we did manage to get out and walk the grounds. Could have spent hours out there! It really is a remarkable house. Rachel did an outstanding job throughout the whole process; exceptionally friendly and responsive. And Joe, thanks for stopping by, it was a pleasure to meet you. Our family appreciated the opportunity to stay at your beautiful home. We had a Wonderful Stay! Thank you.
