Relaxing, enjoyable weekend!
Good location. Comfortable. Enjoyed the hot tub. Hope to return again.
Main rooms are well laid out and light filled. Bedrooms well separated for sound and privacy.
Great for families or 2 couples. Comfortable beds, lots of towels. Could use better instructions for tv and sound bar. Kitchen reasonably equipped if your cooking. Knives could use a sharpening and a cutting board would help. Overall a comfortable and reasonably priced getaway. We would not hesitate to go back.
Thank you for your input and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. We will address the issue with the knives and cutting board and also print off instruction for the TV and sound bar for future guests.
Nice place. Spacious. Great location. Lake view.
Clean comfortable place with lots of space and good view of lake across the street.
Fantastic Extended Winter Weekend
February 17 - 19, 2018
My wife and I have stayed at many rentals that we have found through Home Away. While we have never been disappointed, I was impressed with the attention to detail at The Swallow. Upon arrival the heat was on, the fire place was lit, and the TV was on with background music being played. The Villa was ready. The hot tub was clean and readily accessible from the screened in porch. The entire unit is well equipped with towels and kitchen amenities. The place is very easy to find and parking is not an issue. Even in the Winter, you are walking distance from shops and places to eat. We will be back...
Great place, great hosts!
We had an excellent stay at The Swallow, would love to come again! Thanks!
Thoroughly enjoyed my two nights stay at the Swallow. It is actually even nicer than the pictures indicated. Exceptionally clean and well-appointed. Ethan, the property manager, was out early to shovel snow and ice our steps. King size bed in front bedroom was very comfortable. Shower was terrific. Look forward to return visit.
