A Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect location and setting for our extended family to gather and celebrate my parents 60th anniversary! We were able to prepare meals and eat together in the lovely kitchen and dining room. The bed and bathroom facilities were very comfortable for our group. The living-room and sun room were great spaces to gather in. We were able to get a family pass to the Y just a block behind the home and enjoyed using the yard for games. We were blessed to have this special time together in this great location!

Amazing weekend!

  • 5 of 5

My 2 sisters and I met up with our combined 6 children under 10 years old. The house was amazing and met all our needs. We brought our food and cooked all meals in the house. There was nothing we lacked for meal prep. Each family was able to have a space and the cousins could be together. The beds were so comfortable. We also walked over to the YMCA 2 of the days and secured a $13 family day pass and went down the street to a great park. Awesome, easy family weekend!

Owner's Response: Yes, the YMCA is right next door - we are so glad you were able to get a day pass :) And the City Park was just updated with all new equipment and landscaping this last year. You are welcome back anytime!

A Very Merry Christmas in Porter Hall

  • 5 of 5

This house was exactly what we were looking for: lots of space for our family of 12 (including bathrooms), a big dining room where we could all eat together, lots of comfy places to hang out and play games, a very convenient location near the beautiful town square, and a charming setting for our Christmas celebration. The reservation process was easy and check-in and out was easy, too. Very nice modern kitchen! We loved this house. Thanks Joshua and Ruth Anne!

Dream House!

  • 5 of 5

I am so thankful we found this vacation home for our stay. The house was spacious, gorgeous, comfortable, and had an abundance of bathrooms (a huge plus for our family)! The location was quiet and convenient, and check in/out was easy and hassle-free. Not only was this more affordable than booking a hotel for us all, but we had the space to all be together, prepare meals, and eat as a family in the large, beautiful dining room. The sizable, charming sun room was a favorite space for us all to visit and relax. I highly recommend Joshua and Ruth Anne's home for your stay in this area. I know we look forward to going back!
