Beautiful Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at this property! Check-in was super easy, the house was clean and spacious and had everything that we needed. The Master bedroom was the perfect hangout spot for our large family to watch movies and spend quality time. The balcony off of the Master bedroom was the perfect area to view the stars and get some much needed peace and quite. We will definitely look for a reason to come back for an even longer stay.

Nice home and property, plenty of space!

  • 4 of 5

Home was very spacious, so there was plenty of space for my kids to spread out and play. There were a lot of dead bugs in the house and windowsills (my two year old son was fascinated and tried to touch them all) but that is really my only major complaint. While walking on the trail/in the woods, we DID get ticks on us, so protective measures are a must! Overall, especially for the price, the home was perfect! We would definitely consider coming again.

Comfortable and affordable , beautiful views.

  • 4 of 5

Lots of room at an affordable price. Minor improvement suggestions: laundry soap, dishwasher and liquid soap. Shelving in bathrooms. End tables and lamps in bedrooms and living areas. Downstairs kitchen gave us our extra steps! The family enjoyed the accommodations. Second time renting. Will probably rent again.

We do welcome pets to our home, but we will need proof that your pet is flea free before they can stay. The proof can be a letter from at veterinarian that states that the pet is on medication for fleas, and is flea free. I am sorry if this is an inconvenience, but we want all guests to have a pleasurable stay in a flea free home.
If it is found that you have a pet that was not registered, and the pet fee was not paid, you will be charged the pet fee, and responsible for any flea's found after your stay (as they can live months before hatching).

  • 100% refund for cancellations more than 60 days before check-in date.
