My husband and I rented this house for a long weekend stay. It was very clean and comfortable. It was the perfect size for two people. The house is located within walking distance of downtown. We walked to most locations and breweries. Overall, a great trip!

lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO so I wasn't sure what to expect. We never saw nor heard from the owners (were they supposed to greet us?). The carriage house was situated like a one bedroom apartment with kitchenette. It has its own little patio area & a few bicycles for guests that unfortunately we didn't get to use due to a spring blizzard. It was very comfortable and spacious inside, except the bathroom is tiny & there is no where to put down a toiletry bag. We loved the stairs up to the bedroom and all the funky decor, I especially liked the "Hippies Use Side Door" sign, it is what made me choose this house over others because my deceased son had the same sign!! Snacks were there as well as coffee & tea, even 2 beers, this was great! The rental add said breakfast was included though and unless they think cheese crackers and coffee is breakfast, it was not included. The parking spot was very compact and difficult to get in and out of (I have a small car too). We would recommend this place and stay there again. Thank you!

Owner's Response: A door code is provided to guests so they can check-in and come & go as they please. No owner greeting is necessary nor customary with VRBO's. I double-checked my ad and couldn't find where it stated that breakfast is included. I got a good laugh thinking about the prospects of delivering breakfast every morning to my guests though! I'd have to raise the price....and quit my job. :-) Some advice to newbies: Remember that owners rate the guests too so leave the home in the same condition that you found it. This guest was marked down for cleanliness because they left trash around the house and a sink full of dirty dishes. Everyone wants a 5 star rating!

Best of the best!

  • 5 of 5

Such a cute little place with plenty of room for two. The Hosts go out of their way to make sure you have everything you could possibly need. We had total privacy and yet the Hosts remain just a quick message away. Responses to our questions were received in just minutes.

The bedroom is so cozy and the bed so comfortable it was hard to leave there. The kitchen is so well stocked I did not need to unpack anything I brought with me, they have thought of everything. This place is on our must come back to list.
