Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for USMA 2018 Family Weekend and loved this beautifully appointed, comfortable home! Sheila and Mark are excellent, generous hosts. The grounds are spectacular and the house was fully stocked with everything you could possibly need. We would definitely stay here again.

What a wonderful trip!

  • 5 of 5

The efforts that the owners made to make our weekend trip exceptional was obvious. Our plan was to get away from the city with our grandchildren and their parents to create some fall season memories. From the initial phone contacts, detailed instructions of the house, the thoughtful welcoming basket, the house is a full functioning with a well stocked kitchen. What a gorgeous house and grounds to spend a memorable weekend.

Amazing scenery and well-equipped- perfect for large groups wanting to relax

  • 5 of 5

Immaculate outdoors. The house is very well-maintained and the owners take great care to ensure everything has been thought of. If you forget something, no worries, they have it. The weather and views were incredible.

Beautiful getaway

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect retreat for our family. The setting is idyllic. We enjoyed watching hummingbirds and butterflies all over the property, and deer in the field behind the house. The owners made it feel very comfortable and luxurious, with plush robes in the bedrooms, and fresh scented soaps in the bathrooms. The beds and pillows in the bedrooms were extremely comfortable. It felt like we were at home. We had five couples, two of which slept in the basement on air beds, which the owners also made up like beds. I think kids may have been more comfortable sleeping on them, rather than adults, but we still all enjoyed. I hope we can come again!

Beautiful large cabin with spectacular yard

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay with friends this past weekend -- the cabin is spacious and beautiful with plenty of room to spread out an sleep, and they have a large yard with a well manicured lawn to spread out and enjoy the nice day. Would highly recommend for friends or a family.
