Charming and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do this house justice because it is far more beautiful in person.

I rented this house for my family as a vacation/celebration and I don't think I could have made a better pick. It is absolutely beautiful and the 12 of us fit comfortably.

The owners are very easy to work with and are very prompt with sending the information and keys when the time comes. I can only recommend that you extend the same courtesy to them. If something does go wrong, they and the caretaker take care of the problem immediately. We ran out of propane for hot water and it was fixed within an hour. No hassles, no repeat calls. We called once and it was addressed immediately.

All of the bedrooms had A/C units so even though the humidity was pretty high, we were comfortable sleeping at night.

The screened in porch is the best part! I think we all spent most of our waking hours at the house there.

Overall, we really had a great time and my only complaint would be that it went by way too fast. Looking forward to hopefully returning next year!
