My husband and I have stayed at this condo during the off season as a long weekend getaway. We have typically gone during the cold weather months, but even then the walk downtown is literally a block away and there many great places to check out while you are there.
This condo is immaculate, and the decor is cozy and inviting. The skylights help the decor to be bright and cheery, and the slider offers a great view of the river. The condo is very spacious, with two bedrooms and two bathrooms (one on each floor). And while we haven't brought our kids yet, we are certain that we all would fit with room to spare! Greg and April have done a great job of offering modern amenities such as WIFI, cable TV in the master bedroom and livingroom, stereo, and stackable washer and dryer. There are also games in one of the closets for a rainy day. The kitchen is furnished, complete with coffee maker!
The Christies provide a binder with instructions on how to use the various appliances, menus to local restaurants, and addresses to fun places to see. One of the things that we have enjoyed about staying at the Christie's condo is that they keep a notebook there of comments other renters have had about their stay. We have gotten some fun ideas on where to eat and places to check out while in town! (Portabellos, 21Below, Electric Cadillac Cafe, Morningstar Cafe, Blueberry Haven, Grand Haven Lighthouse Cafe, Great Harvest, and hiking around Rosy Mound to name a few...)
The Christies are most hospitable, and very accommodating. We would most definitely recommend this property to anyone who is looking for a nice, quiet getaway in a comfortable place within walking distance to the downtown scene.
