Linda Kobliska purchased this house in 2011
This house was my mother's and we wanted to keep it in the family. It was always well maintained and offers a homey, comfortable, very reasonably priced stay.
With a second guesthouse directly across the street from Grandma Z's, we have many guests who rent both houses at the same time for larger family gatherings (while still providing some welcome privacy to family members). These homes work well for getting families together, short term rentals for job assignments in the area as well as various other lodging needs.
Our stay was great. The house was not just a house it was a home, very comfortable and was supplied with everything one would need. The owner was very nice to work with and always promptly replied to any questions we had. There were detailed written instructions for us at the house and local phone numbers to call if needed. We would certainly recommend this property and would gladly stay again if in the area.
Property was in pristine condition and sparkling clean. Everything that you needed was in easy reach. Thoughtful decor and furnishings. Close to perfect in every way.
Everything you need for a nights stay on short notice. We used it for a stop over point on a motorcycle trip, worked out great. Thanks Linda! Wade
Thank you Linda for such a great place to hang out and spend the evening on the final leg of our journey home. It was comfortable and cozy.
