Relaxing, Secluded family getaway

Awesome house and property for large families. The place is exactly how it's described and the pictures are accurate. Sandra was very helpful. As an extra bonus there's free horseback riding in the area on a really nice trail. Was tons of fun!

Large home great for family gatherings

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect home for a large family gathering with small children. They have a well stocked play area and tent, which the kids in our party loved. The home is large, which was great for so many people. We weren't on top of one another. The house is clean and comfortable. We had an excellent experience with this home and the owners. The owners were very responsive to all of our many questions. I would recommend this home to others looking for a nice place to spend quality time with their family.

We had a pleasure of staying in this house for a weekend. We were 4 adults and 5 kids, two families. Plenty of room in the house to accommodate us all and very comfortably. Kids are between 5 and 9 years old and they all loved it. Even though the weather unfortunately did not play well with us. There is a lot of toys and even a tent for them to play with. They never got bored. There is a huge bear (Mr. Cuddly) in the house which was by itself entertainment for many hours.

For adults, everything you need is there. Comfortable beds, all kitchen stuff, plenty of comfortable sitting space to sit and read. Forgot your book, no problem, there are books there as well. The house is well kept, clean, big and well lit by natural light.

The owners are very helpful. We had their cell number, and they dealt with any question prior and during our stay in a responsive manner. They even followed up after our stay to make sure all is well. They sent us instructions on how to get there, what to do, and how to contact them in case of any issues.

The community has horse back riding, swimming pool, a lot of nature and a perfect isolation. You don't feel like somebody is watching :)

Highly recommended.
