Plenty of room and great natural lighting in The Homestead. Our two families [5 adults, 4 kids] had a great time here, and never felt cramped or like we had no space to do anything. The smaller room near the kitchen was great for the kids to play at the table, and the family room upstairs was a huge hit with the kids too. The kitchen is fantastic, from the counter tops and great space, to the stove and sink and every kind of dish and utensil you could need. Loved the kitchen. Dining room easily sat all of us, for the days we cooked out and had a big dinner at the house, and there was never a need for fighting over bathrooms or showers. Hot water lasted right through the fifth shower each morning - no complaints there!
The only things that keep me from rating this 5 stars is the matresses, which were really firm [perhaps that just a matter of my own taste], and the little 2-3" 'step' that connected most of the rooms on the first floor. We kept tripping over them, and the kids fell over them a few times, until we finally remembered to step up, or down, as needed to pass into the next room. But really - overall - such a great house, and the other 8 people that stayed there with me completely agree on this assessment. :)
Thanks Betsy & Laurie!
