Where do I start? We arrived slightly behind schedule to find Frank and Marcela waiting for us to give us the tour of the house. It was excellent, full amenities tour – right down to cautioning us about the ‘auto-lock’ feature on the back door---- this proved so helpful to us since we used the backyard patio daily…always remember your key…lol!
The home is beautiful, comfortable and fully equipped. Our little pug Grisham was happy with the fully fenced yard and the lovely dog bowls provided for his comfort – never mind the collectibles with the pug theme. We loved the comfortable beds, terrific shower and lovely furnishings and décor. It’s so close to everything in Frederick – we walked around the town daily without needing the car at all. Five minutes to Starbucks, cafes and restaurants and a lovely central park area. The shops are fun and quirky. The kitchen has everything you need – pots, dishware and glassware -plus there were basics provided such as sugar, spices, salt and pepper, cleaning products etc... There were also enough dishwasher tabs for the number of nights we were staying, but we’re just two, so we washed by hand. Anyone staying with a larger family would have no trouble seating them around the spacious dining table and cleaning up with the dishwasher later on.
Linens were provided – towels, sheets, comforters and even dog blankets for the furniture (we had brought our own, but still, a really nice touch!).
I’d particularly like to thank the owners for leaving the CD guided tour of Gettysburg – we had planned to buy it for our trip there, but there was no need. There are also many brochures to guide you around the many things to see – both historical and artsy.
A lovely touch, a bottle of wine from the local winery and a chunk of amazing cheddar with crackers were waiting for us – this rental could not have been more perfect! Thanks so much for sharing your home with us – we will recommend your town and especially your home to all our friends. Our special holiday for my birthday was made more special by spending it here.
