We built this home as a mother-in -law home and guest house, but have recently decided to share it with more travelers than just relatives.
Bass, crappie & perch stocked in fishing pond with over 300 ducks, geese, peacocks, guineas and chickens, this is a great place to relax and enjoy nature at its best.
Very much enjoyed our stay. It was a lot of fun sharing a little piece of the world with the animal neighbors. All the ducks, geese, peacocks, chickens, roosters, and other assorted winged neighbors was a delight. Fun fishing in the pond; the kid got a taste of what it's really like. The house was warm and cozy and very comfortable.
We spent four days in early November at this wonderful house. It is close enough to town for restaurants (bbq!!!) and groceries, but remote enough that we felt we were "out in the country". Geese and peacocks roamed the grounds. The house had absolutely everything we needed - wifi, plenty of nice towels, a fully stocked kitchen (dishes, pots, pans, coffee pot, condiments, eggs, etc., etc.) The house has three porches, and we enjoyed each one over our weekend. The house is very clean - no carpet - always a plus in my book. It was perfect!
This was our second trip and we plan on returning. The home is comfortable, the property beautiful. Fresh eggs courtesy of the hosts. Thanks!
Lovely house with everything you need and nicely furnished. Very peaceful country setting but still close to town. Would highly recommend this house and look forward to visiting again.
We did not want to leave! We had the best time! It was so peaceful and the kids loved it! They woke up every morning wanting to ride the tire swing and play in the water. Our lab loved it too! I will highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a peaceful and relaxing vacation! I think the best part about it is that you can still get to any major city if you wanted to venture out, but you completely don't have to! This property itself is stunning and so perfect! Plenty to do every day! Plenty of relaxation and family time! Thank you for the memories and beautiful pictures!
Although we had rain the entire trip, the three patios/porches allowed us to still enjoy this great country property. The house was clean, comfortable and well stocked.
