From the moment we arrived I knew I made the right choice in renting this home. Both Mark and Russ are very welcoming, friendly and respectful of their guests. The home is simply beautiful and efficient for anything you may need. The house was clean, the beds were awesome, the kitchen was very well supplied with anything your could possibly need. The home is very well decorated with interesting furniture and artwork. You know you are in a classy home the moment you enter, but it feels very comfortable. We had a birthday celebration at the home with local guests. Everyone was so impressed and loved the idea to rent this home for their own future needs of a small gathering place where they could stay overnight too (ex. rehearsal dinner gatherings, small weddings, family reunions etc).. The owners were open to multiple uses, which was wonderful and just what we needed. The owners stay on the premises which I loved because they were a stone's throw away when I had questions... and I did! I was sorry we were there in the cold winter because the grounds are amazing and the landscaping is superb, but we couldn't utilize it... just another reason to return! The multiple outdoor porches have wonderful views of the water among the trees. There is a road down the hill but you don't even notice it because you are up on a hill above the cars passing by. I would sit there for hours on a summers evening. The stores and restaurants are close by but you need a car in this area to get around. You are so close to the city but you feel you are far away in the country on a private hill top in your own retreat house. I certainly would recommend this house to others and all ready have! The price was well deserved for the quality of the home. My only regret in giving a great review is that it may not be available when want it again!! I hope to get to spend time at this home again, have long talks with Mark and Russ and share Doritos IN THE BAG!!...(personal joke with the owners). I'm sorry we didn't get to say goodbye before we left and thank you for a fabulous time in your home!
