This house is wonderful. The pictures don't do it justice. It is warm and comfortable. It was ideal for travelling with a young child as we could shut the door to the back of the house with the bedrooms when he was sleeping to enjoy some adult time. The backyard area is so inviting. It was a wonderful oasis for relaxing. If we hadn't had so many planned dinners, we would have been grilling back there for sure. The neighborhood is quiet and friendly.
The house is ideally situated, the zoo was so close we actually walked (about 1 mile). We were on and off the highways in minutes when we travelled to various hiking trails and LEGOLAND. Mystic Café is right around the corner and was ideal for morning or afternoon coffee or breakfast (the crew is very friendly and remembers people quickly). We didn't eat in the area but did stop in to the Small Bar for a beer at one point. The restaurants we decided to eat at were a short drive away, most right on 5th just 5 minutes away. If you have small kids, there is a fun playground/park just down the street.
Sue was wonderful to deal with. We had to call on one thing, we needed to clean a comforter and were uncomfortable doing it in the home washer/dryer. She was so pleasant and helped us immediately.
We definitely recommend this house whether travelling with kids, for a romantic getaway or time with the girls/guys.
