"What a wonderful house! First off, it feels huge, there's a lot of square footage. There was plenty of room for the 18 of us. The kitchen was large and had a prep area which came in handy, and as suggested by Doreen who greeted us, we used the shelving in the kitchen hallway for our dry foods and snacks.
There are so many wonderful aspects about the house, our favorite was "the meadow" area (we called it) where we set up a volleyball net (which they provided) and played bat mitten (which they also provided) and beach volleyball (we brought the beach ball & they had a volleyball). There are a couple benches out there for those who just wanted to watch.
THE FIREPIT! The fire pit was clutch. There was wood for burning and there were metal skewers we used for cooking sausages and hotdogs (& SMORES!). There are little stumps around the fire pit to sit on too! We spent our time here singing freely around the fire under the stars while some of us played banjos and guitars.
We loved the creek, so cold & clear! Some of us waded through it, it's not very wide, and about 4 feet deep in the deepest parts. There are also picnic tables and benches along the path so you can stop and just sit for a while and listen. :)
Some other comments and likes:
Plenty of towels!
tons of condiments and spices
fireplace was a nice touch and did get used even though our visit was during the summer (August)
great open living area for large group hang outs
the house is even better looking than the pictures
Cons: There really aren't any, I'm searching here for one... the only thing I can think of was that my husband and I had a hard time figuring out how to work the kitchen appliances (a little more high-tech than the average dishwasher, oven, and microwave)
Make sure you bring food, you won't want to do food runs very often, the town is not close by. There is plenty of room in the kitchen, indoor and outdoor fridge for food and beverage.
Bring bug spray! Lots of land = lots of bugs!
It can be hard to find and service is patchy, so talk to the owner a few days before your trip and they'll give you the lowdown on how to get there beforehand.
It was hot during the day and chilly at night so bring warm clothes for night.
Thank you for our wonderful stay!"
