This was truly the most charming home I have stayed in from Florida to Maine. There were four of us women, but we plan to come back with our families, because there was plenty of room, and lots of fun for the children we left at home...a charming playhouse in the large backyard, and the pool...what a treat. The sun warmed it up so there was no need for the heater. Our favorite spot was under the pergola with a bottle of wine. The kitchen was supplied with the best of cooking, baking, and serving ware. Add to this luxurious bedding, open windows, morning birdsong, and new flowers blooming in the beds each day (oh those roses!), and you'll understand why we sometimes opted to stay "home" rather than explore the delights of the area. Thanks, Pom, for sharing your bit of paradise with us.
