Relaxing family get away

  • 5 of 5

Great property. We stayed with 6 adults and 5 children ages 1-11 and it was comfortable for all of us. The kids were able to play safely. The 2 living areas were perfect for some quiet time. Brian was very accommodating, friendly and easy to work with. We were able to cook a thanksgiving meal and all eat together. It was perfect. The house was stocked with all essentials and we didn’t need a things. Very clean and comfortable. We’d definitely book again.

Property was perfect for family of 8!

  • 5 of 5

We gathered for a family weekend getaway with 8 adults. The property was perfect from the amount of rooms, very clean property, comfy beds and game room with a pool table and a classic video game! The long table in the kitchen was perfect for games! The only con was not enough hot water for all of us to shower. We would definitely stay here again and already have begun planning. Location was secluded (which we liked) but still close to the area vineyards. Area attractions: All the wineries were amazing, dinner at the Trails End Lodge was delicious followed with karaoke and dancing. The local "cafe" Rootbeer Cafe, hmm we will skip this one on the next trip.

The property owner Brian is great! I highly recommend this property for a large party.

Perfect family getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family Christmas at this property and it was perfect! 8 adults and 4 children ranging in ages 4-13 and we had plenty of room. The game room was a fun touch, as we all enjoyed the pool table and arcade games.

So much peace and so many stars!

  • 5 of 5

The house and property are wonderful if you’re looking for somewhere to really feel away from too much noise and activity while still actually being within a reasonable distance of everything you could need. There’s plenty of room inside and out to either gather with family and friends or spread out a bit when you need some space. We also loved the sights and sounds of the wildlife in the area. Brian is also an incredible host. He is extremely communicative and made sure the house was clean and well supplied with the basic necessities. I’d definitively consider booking this property again.
