Wanting for Nothing

  • 5 of 5

We rent a lot and have seen all sorts of rentals. This was the best for me, my spouse and our dogs. It had everything we needed for a weeks long stay, particularly how well the kitchen was equipped. The yard is large and backs up to a wooded area so dogs had plenty of room to romp. The surrounding area is wonderful with winding roads and horse farms and some very nice restaurants within a short drive. We'll be back. Thanks Chris!

Charming cottage in the bucolic countryside

  • 5 of 5

This cottage was all we could have hoped for during our visit to the area for our daughter's wedding. It is in a beautiful location in the village of Yellow Springs, which had an Art Show underway, and yet the cottage itself was very quiet and peaceful. The kitchen is very well equipped, an important feature for me since I made the wedding cake there. I enjoyed frosting it while glancing out of the windows at the flowering dogwoods. The washer and dryer are convenient to the upstairs bedrooms. There is good WiFi, indoor and outdoor lighting, and plenty of hot water. I look forward to return stays here. Thanks, Chris!

Nice home in little village

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 10 week stay. We have already booked the house again for later in the summer. The home had everything we needed for an extended stay. There is an art school in town where my wife took lessons. You can walk to the library or a nice BYOB restaurant. While you are in a quiet country setting anything you need is only a 10 to 15 minute ride away. The owner Chris was always available and responsive to our needs or questions. The nicest part of our stay was the ability to take walks right out the front down on lovely country lanes. Also many trails for walking or hikes nearby. I would highly recommend this location as a base for the many sites to visit in the area.
