The house was very clean and comfortable, the fire was going when we arrived, beds beautifully made.

The house was very clean and comfortable, the fire was going when we arrived, beds beautifully made. Very welcoming. The photo's don't do it justice. The house was also very peaceful and located on beautiful rolling farm land. There was no phone signal but the WIFI was super fast so there were no complaints from our teenage kids and we had no problem looking up weather forecasts and local activity information.
