A VERY PLEASANT VISIT!

  • 5 of 5
Speaking for the group of eight of us, we had a very comfortable and enjoyable stay here on this property. It was quiet, semi-private and had just about every amenity you would have at your own home, other than personal items. The rooms are large and roomy and tastefully decorated to the period. If you enjoy historical architecture and relaxation, you will surely appreciate your stay here as we did.

IT WAS AN INTERESTING HOUSE.

  • 2 of 5
The house has many rooms, but the bathrooms are incredibly limited and awkward for a group of 10. The lawn is not conducive to games and walking around because of the many holes and uneven surface. The house is full of dusty artificial plants and dolls. For children and adults with asthma or allergies, the dust is overwhelming. The positioning of the hundreds of dolls were frightening to some of the children. The dining area is not large enough for 10 people comfortably. We ate in two different rooms. For a family of 4 people, I think the home would be fine, but if you have any more than that, I could not recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Allergy medicine would be good to have as the home is situated in the mountains surrounded by numorous plants, trees and shrubs and much outdoor life. Traveling in early Spring would be difficult for anyone with allergies. The home does have two 5 foot antique, porcelein dolls beside the entry. They sit up high and away from a small child's reach. They depict the erra of the home. No artificial plants in home. There is a kitchen table which sits 8 people, a dining room which sits an 6 people, on the large porch , it had a dining table which accomodates an additional 4 people for dining. A restroom was just remodeled to a victorian decor which now allowsthe home with 2 full baths, and 2 half baths in the house. Basement restroom is presently not functioning. Thank you for your stay.

NEAT PLACE

  • 4 of 5
All went well and the house is as described. A fun place with many antiques to enjoy. There's a small grocery store about a mile up the road for provisions. A great place to relax. Bring a book or two or your DVD's, no broadcast TV, which is a good thing! The owner/manager were responsive and flexible.
