The house was nice and clean, the kids loved the cookies upon arrival!! (Thank you) The instructions for getting into the house were clear and we received all the information we needed. An outside light would have been nice as we arrived back after dark every evening. There was a motion light but it did not work in the back and we did eventually find a switch for the front, but didn't want to leave it on all day.
This is a nice place to stay if you aren't planning too many activities-we found it to be too far and inconvenient to return from Busch Gardens or Williamsburg during the day and then venture out again as it was 40 minutes each direction-even longer if the drawbridge had to go up. There was also a $2 toll to cross the bridge each time. (We should have researched this a little better and asked for the address ahead of time to calculate the travel time to places we went.) There were a couple of restaurants within walking distance, but unfortunately closed by the time we returned from our adventures. The shops nearby were disappointing and nothing our teenagers wanted to see-antiques, dentist, optometrist, exterminator, a bakery closed Sunday and limited hours-again, we should have researched what was nearby. Overall a nice location if you're just looking for a quiet getaway or don't mind traveling -we drove from CT and my brother's family from upstate NY, so after 10+ hours to get there, we weren't liking the additional driving.
The house was clean and there was plenty of room-the kitchen was stocked with everything you would need to cook-which we didn't do much of. :) The shower pressure was very low and our long haired girls were frustrated with the time it took to wash/rinse hair. Also, the laundry room porch leaked when it rained and all our shoes got wet-wish there had been a warning about leaving our things out there-once it started, it was obvious it was a normal occurrence-but we didn't notice in time. Overall nice place, but the location wasn't the best for our needs. Owners left numbers, but we had all the information we needed and didn't need to contact them for anything during our stay.
