A great place to stay!
The house was just as it was described and better. Had a great veranda just to sit and relax, bedrooms were great and the overall property was very picturesque and well-maintained. Would definitely recommend this and would definitely stay here again.
The Smits family continued the history and tradition of great families attending the Liberty University graduation ceremonies. It was a pleasure to share our home with them.
Great home and location
Thank you for a great stay and making our clients feel welcome!
Very spacious and well kept.
We had 8 adults and 3 children staying at the house with an additional 4 adults and 1 child visiting often. We had ample room to be together or apart. The kitchen was fully equipped all linens and towels in abundance plenty of seating for gathering or alone time.
We had a wonderful time and would do it again.
Retzlaff's stay Oct. 2015
Property owners were very warm, welcoming and attentive to our needs. The home was very clean. We had 5 families and everyone had plenty of space. The large dining room table allowed us to all share dinner together and created wonderful memories. Sun porch was wonderful to set in and watch the deer come to eat in the back yard. We very much enjoyed the stay.Thank you!
One of the most beautiful properties we've ever had the pleasure of staying in. The home was next to perfection and the owners were absolutely wonderful. The grounds were exquisite. We would definitely come back!
