Incredible homeowners, and home !

  • 5 of 5
We achieved a great family get-to-together, however, only because of this stoic house full of charm, and love. We greatly appreciated the perfect fit this was for our weekend. Not only did the kids have a blast with the trampoline, wall, and playing in garden --- we enjoyed the kitchen, where we made dinner and even grilled and watched sunset and sunrise :) Last, but not least Katie was kind and considerate to give us a preliminary reservation while we were still in planning stage! I am so thankful my dad could meet his long lost children, and appreciate the thoughfulness-- we felt so loved! Thaaank you..
