Perfect Spot

  • 5 of 5
This house is absolutely wonderful. It's is impeccably decorated, lovingly cared for and in a bucolic spot. Perfect for a weekend getaway. We've been twice and loved it each time. We'll return!

Relaxing Summer Weekend.

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a quiet weekend away from the city and this property delivered on every count. The pictures do not lie. While the property retains the rustic charm of a 18th century farmhouse and barn, it is complete with all amenities needed for a modern getaway, so you are in no way roughing it.

The host is one of the reasons to rent this property. She is very prompt , professional, fun to talk to and has maintained the property to a high standard. We had a minor problem during our stay, but she was very nice and accommodating with us.

We walked in to a clean and tastefully decorated home and were welcomed by streaming music through built in speakers. The kitchen was very well equipped to cook and feed our party of eight. The wrap around porch is perfect for early morning breakfasts and late afternoon coffees. Music, books, movies. Everything you need for a lazy weekend if you do not want to step outside. Which you really don't have to if you don't want to.

The views from this property are like a impressionist painting. You get gorgeous views of the lake and mountains from the front of the house and 3 of the 4 bedrooms. You can see cows grazing in the neighboring property from the back porch. We had toddlers in our party who were full of joy at being able to see farm animals from the house and when we went for a hike along the farmlands around the lake.

Nobody wanted to leave for the city, but ce'st la vie. Gotta get back to the grind. Will definitely look for a longer stay next time around.
