Wonderful place for family gathering
We really enjoyed this historic home. We were a family gathering of 11, with another 10 in for a luncheon. Home was clean and well stocked, except. . . a very limited supply of TP, dishwasher soap, paper towels, garbage bags, etc., which we went through in the first day. This is the only VRBO I have ever stayed at that you had to supply your own basics. This wasn't communicated when I rented location.
Would I stay there again? Absolutely. It was quite charming and well laid out.
