This is a home not a house. My family used the home during a long weekend for a high school graduation. I traveled with 3 boys, ages 8,6,4. This was ideal for them. Also my 81 year old grandfather stayed with us at the home and it was ideal for him as well. Hoping to plan more family time at this home. I hated to leave but look forward to returning. You truly only have to buy your food and kick your feet up!!!
