A great place for a great price!

  • 5 of 5

A group of friends gathered here for a five day retreat. We had a wonderful time! The house is charming. The hosts were very attentive to responding to any questions we had. There are two different living room/gathering spaces in the house which is also a really great feature. All this comes at a very reasonable price too!

It was spring so it was like we stayed in the house to visit the harshey chocolate factory. But will visit in summer for sure to enjoy the house again. It was fun with so many rooms and the steps and the small room at the back .. Pat was overboard wlth all type of stuff in the house .. from towels to blankets to pantry .. forgot anything to pack .. do a treasure hunt in the house and you will get it .. loved every moment. Thank you Pat

The house was amazing. These photos do not do justice! It was so much nicer and bigger in person! The kitchen was fully stocked and the beds were very comfy. Perfect place for a week or weekend getaway!
