Very spacious and well kept.

  • 5 of 5

We had 8 adults and 3 children staying at the house with an additional 4 adults and 1 child visiting often. We had ample room to be together or apart. The kitchen was fully equipped all linens and towels in abundance plenty of seating for gathering or alone time.

We had a wonderful time and would do it again.

Retzlaff's stay Oct. 2015

  • 5 of 5

Property owners were very warm, welcoming and attentive to our needs. The home was very clean. We had 5 families and everyone had plenty of space. The large dining room table allowed us to all share dinner together and created wonderful memories. Sun porch was wonderful to set in and watch the deer come to eat in the back yard. We very much enjoyed the stay.Thank you!
