Had a great time at Grandma's house!
The house was perfect. We met for a sister's crafting trip and loved the house. The extras the host provides were so thoughtful and added so much. The layout and space in the house were also perfect for us - we especially liked the large dining room table. We found ourselves looking at many of the things in the house and enjoying the history and uniqueness of the house. The neighborhood is also very nice and we loved the old homes. Such a cute area! Thanks much. Hope to come back again as it is a great meeting place for us.
Thank you Ann! I wish all my guests were as thoughtful, clean and kind as you and your sisters are! I hope you return!
Comfortable and cozy home
The house was comfortable and loaded with many extra little touches like a wide selection of coffee, tea and hot chocolate plus shampoos, conditioners and body lotion products.
The beds were very comfortable and we appreciated the fans!
Good house. Convenient and comfortable
Was a pleasure staying here. Look forward to returning.
Full of character
My friends and I truly enjoyed our stay at Grandma's House. The home itself is beautiful and full of character. The bed sheets were incredibly comfortable and we loved that there was food available for us. Judi is wonderful, very accommodating, and caring. We will stay here again for sure!
Thank you Jen, I would love for you to return!...Jen and her friends were awesome! Great communication, kind and thoughtful, they left the house spotless! The best guests a host could have. Thank you once again Jen, please return!
Wonderful place for family gathering
We really enjoyed this historic home. We were a family gathering of 11, with another 10 in for a luncheon. Home was clean and well stocked, except. . . a very limited supply of TP, dishwasher soap, paper towels, garbage bags, etc., which we went through in the first day. This is the only VRBO I have ever stayed at that you had to supply your own basics. This wasn't communicated when I rented location.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely. It was quite charming and well laid out.
Wonderful cozy home with hints of yesteryear. Absolutely feels like staying at Grandma's house!!
Great porch for the rainy days.
Everything you need for a family trip to Reagan Country.
Thank you Shawn and Julie! It was my pleasure hosting you. Thank you for your kindness and consideration. You’re the best guests! I hope to host you again! Best Wishes, Judi
