  • 3 of 5

Our stay in Northfield was bittersweet. It was the first Christmas we and our kids had gone to our home town after the death of Mom (Grandma). The house was comfortable but not home. The kitchen was stocked with lots of wonderful pots, pans, baking pans, plastic containers that enabled us to prepare all the traditional favorites we are used to making. Newer gas range and large side by side refrigerator were great. Lots of nice electronics - HD TV, WIFI, etc. (However, everyone could watch from the street after dark with no shades on the front windows.) Being winter we could suggest a railing on the side steps for those snowy, icy days. A nice vacation home for a short stay in Northfield.
