Charming century home, comfortable and spotless!

  • 5 of 5

We felt very much at home at this cozy property. It is spotless throughout and offers ample space - a large kitchen with everything necessary, a well appointed bathroom (with toiletries and plenty of towels of hotel quality), a comfortable dining/living room with TV and charming corner fireplace, and two quiet bedrooms with cozy beds and luxurious linens. A lovely welcome gesture from the owner: on arrival we found bread, pastry, and a bottle of wine - much appreciated! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Beautiful Country Charm

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent time at 12 Elm with family visiting from England. What a splendid time we had. This rental has everything you'll need to make your stay comfortable. There are a lot of little extras included. 12 Elm is so charming & warm with tasteful decorations. The owners were very understanding and accommodated our mobility needs without question. Perfet location close to all amenities. Plenty of free parking and lovely yard & gardens to enjoy. Hope to visit again soon. Thank you Linda & Al.
