Very impressed with overall layout and every room

Fantastic place to bring a medium to large group of people! The pool and big backyard are hard to beat.

Owner's Response: We were delighted to have this group of 40 people at our property. They did an excellent job following the check-out procedures and left the property in great shape. Our cleaning crew remarked about what great condition the property was in considering 40 people - many of them younger people, had just checked-out. We would be delighted to have this group back!

Great place for a large group gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing weekend in Winchester. This house provided everything we were looking for in a girls weekend getaway, from comfortable furnishings to great space for large gatherings (like a huge dining table allowing us to all eat together and lots of outdoor seating where we could gather on the patio or around the fire pit). The owners were quick in answering all of our questions leading up to our stay and while we were there, and even facilitated the incredible massage services we received at the house. Thank you for a fantastic weekend!

What a Blessed Family Reunion

  • 5 of 5

What a blessing it was to stay at such a beautiful place. The place was clean and spacious

enough for everyone to do their own thing. Everything we needed was at hand. There were many things to do to keep everyone from the youngest to the oldest busy. The most precious thing of all was being able to wake up with everyone under one roof and enjoy a cup of coffee/tea together. Everyone agrees that this was not just a memorable experience because of our reunion but it could not have been as perfect without a perfect place. This Winchester Home was that perfect place. I couldn't say enough good things about Ted and Deb - very welcoming, helpful and simply beautiful people.

What a great experience.

Owner's Response: It was absolutely delightful having this group stay at our property! One of the things we pride ourselves on is keeping our place clean and inviting. Deb is obsessive about cleanliness and oversees the cleaning team's activities and double checks every room and area. One of the things we informally suggest to our guests as a totally optional activity is to do us a favor and throw some of the used towels into the washer for us as they are leaving. This group went above and beyond by actually washing, drying and folding towels for us. We were delighted to find a large set of ready to use towels on the conference room table upon our arrival. Delightful guests. They only left a few days ago and have already inquired about returning for a longer stay next year! A warm thank you goes out to this family! Ted

Great home for a wonderful family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 adults and 8 kids for a family reunion. This was the first time we all stayed in one location and it was perfect. The indoor pool was an immediate hit with the kids and they were actively recruiting adults to watch them in the pool. The large yard was also a hit and we felt very safe allowing them to play outside. Being able to all dine in one room was definitely a plus with a lot of laughs. The only problem we had was the grill with only one burner working the first time. Our Purdue engineer offered to work on it and got all three burners working. The grill could use new burners. But we managed and had a wonderful stay.
