Wonderful farm-link property!
Would have been good to have a floor plan or something as we didn't fully understand the layout of rooms. Kids were a bit scared at night. Fireplace was cozy & perfect for all our snow gear. Stove elements were frustrating as the temperatures were very erratic.
We had 18 of us staying at Alamo-Crockett and couldnt rave about it more! Had an absolute blast! The place was warm and had everything we needed, will definitely be going back both in summer and winter!
The owner is really nice and easy to deal with. Location is good and the house was always warm. However, the oven and hobs are terrible to the point of being unusable, real shame as we like cooking together. The layout is odd as well, have to go outside to access most of the bedrooms and the bunk beds are really high off the ground so young kids, 7 and under in our case, were too scared to sleep up there.
The property and location is fine. The house itself however needs a bit of work. We found a lot of basic things needing repair.
