Great place for a retreat
We loved it here! It's less isolated than the pictures made us think it was (it's on a residential street in the country), but it was still great. The hosts were amazingly friendly and accommodating.
Loved all the character of the old house! Awesome old plank flooring!!
Wonderful place to relax and enjoying being together as a family!
Charming farm house
We had a great time in this house. It was incredibly charming and had a lot of character. My toddler loved exploring all over.
It had everything we needed and more. You could tell the kitchen was set up by someone who actually cooked there and it had everything from a crock pot to muffin tins. There was even a high chair and Pack and Play (and a nook in the master that fit the Pack and Play). We definitely recommend it.
Home country feel
The property was clean and spacious. It has a good location for what we needed. The owner was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend it !!!!
Nice Historic Home
This was our second stay at Maxines. The home is well appointed with everything one would need. The new beds made for a very comfortable stay and the bedding was very nice. Thanks Frank!
