REUNION WEEKEND

  • 5 of 5
My friends and I just spent a fantastic weekend at The Farmhouse. We looked at maybe 20 houses online before coming upon this one, and our search was over! The house and easy-going owner, Perry, provide everything you need or need to know, from amenities at the house (ping pong, pool table, fire pit, lots of land for lawn games, comfortable sleeping arrangements, a DVD collection, plenty of parking, etc) to area attractions. Plus, it's very quiet, spacious and private - and we had 12 people! Once we picked up our groceries on Friday, we didn't leave the house the rest of the weekend! We wouldn't hesitate to go back!

A WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at this house was great. We were 4 couples looking for an annual weekend getaway. This house was perfect. It had plenty of room for us to sleep, cook and just " hang-out". The farmhouse was clean and fully equipped to make us feel right at home; extra towels, blankets, soap, etc. it had it all! The pool table, movies and games were an added plus! Perry ( the owner) was extremely caring, helpful and a pleasure to deal with.
Thank you for sharing your Farmhouse with us and allowing us to create another year of memories!

FANTASTIC HOUSE FOR FAMILY & GROUPS

Fantastic house for family & groups
  • 5 of 5
My family (11 people) rented this house for a reunion weekend, and it was just wonderful. Fantastic communal kitchen and large table gave us time together, and the living room was so cozy with the couches, fireplace, and TV. The location was beautiful, and gave us easy access to hikes in the area. The beds were comfy and we all slept well. Can't think of anything that would have made this a better weekend -- thanks for sharing your home, we would definitely return!

Fantastic and comfortable place for a large group to stay. Plenty of bedrooms, plenty of seating in the living and dining rooms, plenty of bathrooms, towels, linen, soap, etc. We felt well cared for.

NEW YEAR'S 2012

New Year's 2012
  • 5 of 5
I was at the farmhouse for 3 night with 11 other people and had a blast! The house is gorgeous, spacious, and exceptionally clean. The master bedroom is HUGE and the bed is very comfortable. The kitchen became our main hang out spot as the gigantic island allowed for socializing while we took turns cooking. There wasn't a single thing missing, Perry thought of it all (down to extra trash bags and toiletries).

If you climb the hill in back of the house, you're greeted with a beautiful view of a valley. I look forward to coming back to this cozy getaway, we all felt right at home!
