My husband and I decided last minute to get away over the holidays for him to recover from an unexpected heart procedure. This place was so PERFECT!!! I cannot say enough about how accommodating Ellen was in assisting to work out the schedule in order for us to enjoy 4 WONDERFUL nights. The "Parkway Farmhouse" is such a relaxing and charming place. We have visited the area quite a few times before and have already visited many of the local attractions so we wanted to make this more of a relaxing retreat - and was it ever!!! We were perfectly content just spending most of the time at the farmhouse relaxing. Ellen has everything you could possibly need to be comfortable. The kitchen is perfectly stocked with utensils and cookware and there are enough music CD's to satisfy even the hardest customer. The house is only a short drive off the parkway and it is very private and peaceful. She has the house decorated so beautifully with lots of pottery and artwork. You just really feel at home there and we can't wait to go back. We plan to return in the warmer weather for a longer stay - because believe me - once you settle in, you won't want to leave. You cannot go wrong with this rental - you will absolutely fall in love!! Thanks Ellen.
