"We arrived tired and irritable after a long flight from the East Coast, rental car woes, and kids who needed naps. We weren't in very good spirits and just needed to chill. There were a few things we needed and the owner, Misti, was so sweet and helpful getting us settled. She was just a doll, and we could tell right away that she took our comfort seriously. We felt bad for being so grumbly but she understood and didn't take offense. She was quick to point out one deck chair that had a 1" strip of webbing missing and we laughed at how that could be an issue. She mentioned a guest had left a bad review about it. At that moment I made a mental note to leave her property a good review, since we all know it's only the complainers who ever feel inspired enough to log on and gripe about stuff. The manor couldn't have been more perfect for our large family. The kids just loved the horses, pool, the game room, the trails, the pokemon, the volleyball. Us big kids loved the hot tub, beautiful views, comfortable beds, and ease of getting the whole family in one place and comfortably so. The house isn't perfect, but we are talking minor stuff. Like one drawer was a little hard to pull out in the kitchen and the outdoor bar had a small tear in the awning. And in the spirit of full disclosure we did have to ask for extra bar towels in the kitchen and we ran out of TP during our stay, which the caretaker was quick to replenish. Certainly nothing that could detract from the gorgeous house and grounds, unless you are a complete jerk looking for a problem. We felt very lucky to have this house to ourselves, and loved every minute of it. Oh, did I forget the blackberries? There are blackberry bushes with the largest berries I have ever seen around the property. We made 4 delicious pies during our stay! The kids got to ride, we had a really fun scavenger hunt, the runners in our family loved the Chehalis trail so near by. I can't say enough great things about this house and farm. The week went way too fast, but we are sure to come back!"
