This trip to the Floating Farmhouse was a homecoming to a very special piece of paradise for our family. You see, we were once the proud owners of this home. While my parents lovingly cared for the home and the property, we did not have the resources to breathe life into this aging beauty. Unfortunately, it did not pass directly into Tom Givone’s hands from ours so it was years before the home received the attention it deserved. The week was everything we could have hoped for. We were in awe of how Tom has mixed old and new to modernize and provide all the comforts you could wish for while keeping the soul of the home, and the surrounding property, intact. We spent five glorious nights enjoying the floating deck over the pond, having cocktails in the gazebo, playing croquette, BBQing, creating pizzas in the amazing kitchen, playing board games and listening to some great vinyl records! We reminisced about the wonderful times we had in this house in the past and are so grateful that we had the opportunity to make new memories. It was a homecoming we will treasure.
On the business end of things, our booking process with Betsy at Home Away was seamless. She was simply a delight to work with, was quick to provide availability and answer any questions we had right up until it was time for us to arrive. She even emailed us while we were there to check-in.
If you are reading this review and are undecided, look no further. This is a special place and it is heartwarming for us to know that others will also have the opportunity to make memories here.
