A Special place in our hearts

My friends and I have made it a habit of renting far away places to enjoy and we choose the Floating Farmhouse for our first Thanksgiving get together months ago... to say we were exited by this house was an understatement – the pictures are fabulous – in real life it’s a thousand times better!
The owner, Tom, was always ready to answer all of our questions and concerns, the rental process and agreement was clear and accurate. During our stay he was fast in responding to any phone calls with any tiny questions that we had. When we told him we were going to be arriving a bit late in the evening, he made sure the lights and heater were on, so we were sure to walk into a nice and toasty house.
The house is AMAZING, the right blend of sophistication and country charm. Perfect for what we had in mind, which was to disconnect from the world and enjoy time away from the busy cities we all live in to the calm of the woods.
The moment we arrived we knew we were in for a treat - The rustic decor along with modern convenience wowed us completely. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and every corner had a hidden treasure. The living room (and master bedroom) has a wood burning fireplace and we wasted no time and building a fire, in order to sit in the comfy couch and buried ourselves in the comfy, fuzzy blankets found all over the house. Like many had said in their comments, the highlight was the huge kitchen, the massive windows, which overlooked the woods; make you feel like you are in a outside cocoon, we spent most of our time there. The only improvement, I would do in there is to have some type of comfy couch so you can sit while the cooking is going on.
Even with temperatures in the 30's we were lucky that we had sunny days, the perfect setting to sit out by the porch and enjoy the sounds of the water floating by while soaking on the rays of sunshine
The wood burning pizza oven gave us a night of great homemade pizzas, the ultra modern commercial gas stove was perfect for cooking our Thanksgiving fare that we then enjoyed in the huge wood table overlooking the stunning views of the woods - on our last day, during our breakfast we were treated to a herd of deer running thru the woods in back of the property - a stunning sight. My boyfriend chose this setting to propose thus making this house extra special for us along with our friends.
We are already talking about coming back... even thinking of the possibility of making it our weddin
