We have lived in the area for all of our lives and offer this and two other guest houses in the area. We also rent traditional housing--apartments and houses.
Linda Kobliska purchased this house in 2012
After purchasing and starting Grandma Z's, the guesthouse that is located directly across the street, this home became available and since it makes great sense to offer families two houses in close proximity, we purchased this hoe.
This is a relatively large home, with full kitchens, living and dining areas on both floors.
Bring whatever you want to cook or eat, but that's all you'll need to bring. Kitchen has all the cookware and dishes you are likely to need for any cuisine or gathering. Beds are plentiful and comfortable; house warms quickly and evenly, accessories all work.
We woke on our schedule, made coffee (thanks to whoever left the nearly full Folgers) and made our breakfast. Didn't find any sugar, but are better off without anyway.
WiFi is available, but not a strong connection.
No gas station or grocery store close to town, but we knew that before we arrived.
The house was attractively decorated for the holidays. We will be back!
We went to Elma to celebrate our grandparent's 70th wedding anniversary. The nearest hotel was almost 30 miles away. We were excited to find this house to rent for the night in nearby Alta Vista! This house was very clean, comfortable with plenty of space. The house is also located in a very charming neighborhood. We really enjoyed our stay!!
Linda was so kind and helpful answering all questions we had nearly immediately. She was honest and worked with us to provide the best stay ever!! The guesthouse was clean, quiet, comfortable, and well stocked with everything we needed. The beds were so comfortable providing us with a great night sleep. It was a great experience all around and we are ready to go back!!!
Very nice house. There was a total of 8 of us in there and we where very comfortable. Plenty of room for all of us. My one sister in law wanted to take her bed with her. She said that was the best sleep she had in a long time. The only thing that could of made it better was if the wind was calm. We would of went out and did somethings that where close by. But we did not want to fight the wind. Plenty cook wear and dishes. Did not have to worry about bringing anything extra. She had it all there. Linda was very easy to work with. Even with this person not knowing how to run a TV with a CD player in it. We had a few hiccups but it was NOT at Linda hand's. In all the stay was great. If I every get the chance, I could stay there again.
