...lifelong best friends --- both of us with three young children eight and under-- all we wanted was an escape from the rat race and peace and quiet. we didn't need frills or entertainment…the pictures were so beautiful on this website but surely it wouldn't be as perfect as it seemed? so we went with "realistic" expectations….
WELL WE WERE BLOWN AWAY!!!! we kept asking each other "who found this?" "how did we get so lucky?"
everything everyone has said on here is true. i have to agree with the person who said don't underestimate the guest cottage- it's fantastic. our children would all pile in there on the beds and watch a movie while we kicked our feet up in the attached main house. all of the picturesque towns are just simple short drives away…with small children we didn't want to be in the car a lot and we never were..all the drives were so doable.
we use vrbo and home away regularly and ellen is like no other owner we've ever had. she is so helpful and seems to truly want her guests to have such a wonderful time.
this listing is accurate, the pictures are accurate except they don't do the charm of the inside justice. i would like to add that i have terrible allergies in "old houses" and this "vintage" home is not stuffy and dusty AT ALL! i hope that tidbit is helpful to someone b/c that can make or break a trip.
trip of a lifetime!
thank you ellen!
