From arrival to departure, we remained very content with Jane' place.

  • 5 of 5

The space is perfect for cabin lovers. 3 fireplaces. WOW. Jane left ample wood supply, as well as linens, even food.

Lovely old house but needed better preparation

  • 3 of 5

Lovely old house, interesting artwork, very nice useable fireplaces, great walks nearby along the creek, very nice owner.

Disappointing preparation for our stay, though we did make our arrangements only a week ahead. Closets and dressers were full so we couldn't unpack our luggage, and bedroom lighting was dim so we couldn't see inside our suitcases. Refrigerator was packed so we could not easily fit our food in. Kitchen appliances and accessories were old. We had a very nice stay, and enjoyed playing games during the evening in front of the fireplace.

Owner's Response: I am glad you and your company enjoyed the stay here, Nancy! I spent many houra on preparation for your stay but your comments have been most helpful in knowing what else a guest would need to feel most comfortable for a 2 night stay: more ample drawer and closet space and better bedroom lighting; up-to-date kitchen appliances and accessories. I had cleared out the refrigerator as best I could, while also leaving breakfast foods for you - milk, half and half, yogurts, orange juice, breads, butter and jams ( as well as a variety of teas and coffee on the sideboard.) Thank you for your illuminating comments.. Jane
