beautiful in the fall

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, well laid out and easy to use with many people. The property is well maintained and has a very nice casual decor. The managers of this property were great to work with and made the process very smooth. I would highly recommend this property to a friend.

Loved It!

  • 4 of 5

The property was nice and clean and very spacious four our 3 couples weekend. I gave it only 4 stars because the pool table pockets were ripped and would not hold the balls. The guys did not play pool because of this. Overall I would rent here again.

Big, airy, all you need!

  • 4 of 5

This is a very nice house and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay (just be forewarned, the driveway is STEEP, park off the street). There were some minor issues--at least a third of the lights were either burned out or gone, the sleep sofa was useless (broken springs, torn support, shot mattress), and somebody had made off with some of the silver, but there was plenty of room for everyone (we had a full house for my daughter's graduation from JMU). I called the management company and they had someone out within the hour to replace lights throughout the house (power surges make them blow), and they got me flatware; they were very responsive.

The kitchen is huge and, although it took some looking to find everything (I SWEAR I opened every cabinet before telling someone to bring pans ... and then found a cabinet full of them), it has pretty much everything you need. It takes five minutes for hot water to arrive in the kitchen, but that was a minor inconvenience. There's a big pantry and tons of cabinets, and a washer and dryer.

The dining table is large, and although 14 couldn't all sit at once, we did just fine. I had brought a small folding table, which helped. The dining room is off the upper deck (as is the upstairs master), with a lovely view into the trees, and you can hear a brook down the hill. Bring chairs if you have a big party. We used the grill, and I wish we could have used the gas fireplace, as it was a cold, rainy weekend, but it was past the deadline.

The bedrooms were spacious and the bed we slept in (the upstairs master, which has its own bath and WIC) was very comfortable (& no complaints from anyone else). The downstairs master also has its own bath. The furnace is in there, but it does have a king bed and a deck. The bathrooms are clean and there are plenty of them (bring towels, bath mats, soap and TP). The young people stayed up until the wee hours, but we didn't hear a thing upstairs.

I like color, so I brought along an area rug and bright throws, and put flowers around. But there's artwork throughout the house, and except for one room downstairs, plenty of windows. The furniture is quite comfy, upstairs and down, and the kids played pool for hours.

The upstairs living area is painted an unfortunate greenish off-white (I'm into color) but it is such an open, airy room, only somebody obsessive would notice. I would definitely rent the house again and recommend it, especially for a large group.

Great multi-family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had a great multi-family weekend in this large rental home. Plenty of room to spread out. Plenty of beds for our large group. The large kitchen table held our entire group for dinner and games. The decor was simple and worn, but definitely family friendly. (The pool table was especially worn). Our constructive criticism was that we couldn't regulate the temperature to keep both floors comfortable. The lower level was quite cold. When we turned the heat up, the upper level became too warm.

The location to Skyline Drive was terrific. Only 15 minutes to the entrance to the park. We enjoyed an afternoon of hiking in the mountains. Then returned to a welcoming home for dinner and games. We would definitely stay in this house again.

Owner's Response: We are so pleased you enjoyed the house and Skyline Drive! We'll check into the pool table and call the local pool table maintenance company. To keep the downstairs warmer, when upstairs is too warm, just close some upstairs vents to force more warm air to the downstairs rooms! It's as easy as that! We welcome you to stay with us, again!

Love this house

  • 5 of 5

Last year was the very first time I had ever rented a house so I really didn't know what to expect. I planned a weekend with my team for some down time and we had a blast!. The house was Perfect! Lots of room and very clean. We went in on Friday and never left until Sunday. Katrina was very helpful and easy to work with. We will be renting this same house again this year in Jan.
