Great girls getaway

  • 4 of 5

We have been having our Great Autumn Escape for 32years now. Found this gem of a house last year so returned this year and plan to return again, and again, and again ! Privacy in a wooded area and a great outdoor firepit.

Lovely old home in the country.

  • 4 of 5

The large house felt like home. The common space was incredible. All the bedrooms were very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped for real cooking. We had some challenges with the tv reception and the owner came over right away to help. It was a complicated fix but he stuck with it and fixed it so we had tv channels, Netflix and more.

Large beautiful outdoor and indoor space

  • 5 of 5

Very clean. Stayed with multiple families and there was more than enough space. Lots of room for kids to play outdoors. Large kitchen to make our own food and avoid restaurants. Would stay again!
