Beautiful he. Plenty of space. Kids loved it. 100% satisfied with our stay.
Michelle and Michael are also very nice and helpful.
I organized a (redefined) bachelorette weekend at the Carriage House at the Turquoise Barn, and I cannot say enough about our stay and experience.
From an organizers standpoint, Michelle and her family were incredible hosts - quick to respond, very clear about all policies, happy to answer questions and offer recommendations for nearby activities/meals, and very attentive to our overall enjoyment & satisfaction.
The house itself was lovely as could be - very well stocked kitchen, comfortable sleeping quarters, plenty of bathrooms, and delightfully decorated. We made use of the small grill (we also brought our own), the fire pit, and spent a lot of time appreciating the surroundings. I know I can confidently speak on behalf of all 14 of us when I say that we were honestly BEYOND pleased -- and the gal we were celebrating has been simply glowing this past week -- just overjoyed at the entire experience.
Also impressive how spacious and comfortable the house was -- we oftentimes has many bodies in the kitchen, and always had a lot of people at the table -- we never once felt crowded or confined!
We enjoyed a truly lovely Sunday brunch at Table on Ten nearby, took a day trip to Bellayre Beach for some (simple) boating and relaxing, and were treated to a soundtrack from a small reggae music festival that the grounds were hosting -- but mostly we spent lots of quality time together in and around the house -- which perfectly welcomed that sort of thing!
A peaceful and joyful addition to my summer -- Thank you Michelle & co!! Highly & enthusiastically recommend!
had a wonderful stay here this spring. the house the property the owners were all great. we had four families and lots of kids and we all had plenty of space.. the pond and surrounding property offer hours of entertainment for the little ones. the neighboring goat, sheep, rabbits and ducks were also a big hit.. looking forward to going back in the fall..
