The dining room contains a large 8-person farm table and is separate from the breakfast room that seats 6. ____________________________________________________________ Entertainment: Access to high speed wireless internet inside the house and outside on the surrounding property. You have access to our equipment box that contains frisbees, soccer balls and more. We do our best to provide anything you may need. Please let us know in advance. ____________________________________________________________ Outdoor-BBQ: We have an outdoor BBQ to double as a grill or fireplace. Have a meal outdoors while looking out over the pond! There's starter charcoal, BBQ tools, and plenty of firewood. ____________________________________________________________ Night-time star-gazing: The BBQ grill can be used as a fire pit so you can sit, watch the stars, and listen to the night sounds.
What makes this House unique
Outdoor Space - There are five acres of land, so you’ll have plenty of room to play a game of soccer, toss the Frisbee or play other games from our equipment box. Read a book at our shaded picnic table. Hang out on the deck and watch the sun go down. You may spot deer, birds, and fish on the property. The swimming pool will be open to enjoy during the summer months. Interaction with guests We are very responsive and will explain our check-in/check-out process upon booking. We can provide great local recommendations as needed. Weddings: Families may use our farmhouse as their home base during the wedding weekend. The property is a great place for pre-wedding photos! We can also accommodate events such as rehearsal dinners, small outdoor/indoor weddings, and engagement parties in our event space which is conveniently located on the property. Give us a heads up so we can help you with your event. Other things to note Private Pond: If you have your own kayak or boat, you're welcome to put in (but no motors since this is the small pond).
