Donna has been great to work with in this, our third year of the annual Bitch Posse get together (our second at this property) where five women get together from all over the United States for relaxation, fun, and conversation. (Oh, and wine. Lots of wine). Donna has been so wonderful that we had to make her an honorary Bitch, which she accepted graciously.
The house is particularly perfect for us due to the size. With five bedrooms there is room for us all. We loved hanging out in the sunken living room together, enjoying our view out to the lake. We also enjoyed using the large dining room to sit and have great family-style meals, be it breakfast (late, of course), lunch or dinner.
The history of the house is also phenomenal for a few of us who are architects and designers and who really appreciate the mid-century design interiors and the beautiful prairie-style lines of the house itself. There's even a wonderful hudee-ring sink in the downstairs bath! It's really quite fabulous.
The location is great; not to far out of the city that amenities aren't available but situated far enough away on a lush, private acreage with a private lake. We couldn't hear a peep of any man-made noise, except for the clinking of our wine glasses. We even saw a family of deer come up to the far side of the lake and graze for quite some time which we enjoyed watching.
I would never hesitate to rent from Donna in any of her rental properties. She is quick with an answer to a question and an all-around Rennaissance woman. I hope that those of you looking DO book and that you enjoy yourselves as much as we have.
The Bitch Posse will be back for year four and beyond!
