Owner's Response: I love running our BnB & providing exceptional customer service. We have lots of photos up of our wonderfully located and very clean duplex so folks know exactly what they are renting up front. We are happy to provide cable TV & fast WiFi service, and we have a laundry facility on site that we make available to guests, but we do not charge for the laundry facility or soap. It is true that the washing machine broke during Donna's stay. (It worked perfectly when she arrived.) I sent a repairman immediately and we had to order a part that took a few days to ship. Although Donna did not have the washer available in the home for some of the time she stayed, there are several clean, nice laundry mats nearby. Due to regular customers who have allergies, I refrain from using poisons in or around the home. I'd prefer to have a dandelion or two than to kill all of the earthworms! If Donna had communicated to me that there were ants, I would have given her an ecologically friendly product to use to deter them. We aren't the Taj Mahal and we don't charge that much, either! Our drive way is cracked and old and is being replace this spring. I hope interested guests will read the many other positive reviews of our place!

Great for a simple place for a small family gathering.

  • 5 of 5

Property was good. We really did not lack for anything. Appreciated meeting the owner, Maureen Carroll - that was a nice touch. And, it was nice to have some "snack" food available in the house before we made a trip to the grocery store. Fruit, crackers and chocolate - another nice touch! The WiFi is not the best, but that is not the owners' fault. It wasn't a big deal to us, but if you are needing to stay connected you need to be aware. Was thankful for a "home" to share time with family, rather than motel rooms.

Perfect for our family visit

  • 5 of 5

It had everything we needed for 2 couples and 3 children.

Very comfortable and on a quiet part of town right next to a 24 hour Walgreens!

Made our trip very functional.
