Nowadays as a full time working mother running a family of 5 plus 3 fur kids is chaotic (understatement of the year). Even going on vacations leaves us in need of a vacation to recuperate from the vacation. We wanted a place with enough to do (if we choose) with little to no hustle and bustle; and most importantly a lot of peace and relaxation. We found it at the Caleb Atwell house. Our family of 5 slept comfortably in this historic yet very well maintained home. There was plenty of room for all of us and plenty of property to explore and play games on. Not only did we all enjoy the pond, but so did our dogs (yes this place is pet friendly too!) It was great to see the kids and the dogs running and playing games (like ones provided at the house like horseshoes and badminton) on what seems to be an endless green yard. Although you feel like you are millions of miles from anything, you are still within a reasonable distance of everything you need and want; such as great hiking and the simple joys that an old "downtown" provides (with modern pleasures such as Ben & Jerry's ;) ) The owners are very friendly and accommodating and there is no question, they take a lot of pride in keeping this house in great shape so that others can enjoy all it has to offer. Happy to say this is just what we needed and there was no need for recuperation. Glad this home was recommended to us by previous visitors and we will definitely be back soon!
