Mike, Really enjoyed staying at your house. Very nice and close to everything. We might come back to town next year. If we do, we will rent again.

Nice, large house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

I stayed for 5 nights with my wife and 3 small children. The house was perfect for us. It's large with a couple of living areas and an ample kitchen. The front and back yards are huge and nicely maintained; a great place for our kids (and their cousins) to play. I felt very safe in the neighborhood; it's gorgeous and quiet, with giant old trees and very little traffic.

The house itself was very clean and well-maintained. It's clearly been added on to, as some rooms have a different character from others. But it worked very well for us. The master bedroom was very spacious and pretty far from the bedrooms our kids used. That worked out well for us; for a family with an infant who needs help in the night, it might be less convenient if you plan on putting the baby in a separate room.

The only problem we had was an internet outage just after we arrived, and Mike quickly contacted the cable company and took care of it.

We had a wonderful time and we'd probably choose this house again for our next visit. Thanks, Mike!

Spacious and accommodating.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great home. I've seen photos of this home on this site. I was surprised of how spacious it was. There was 9 of us, and no one had to step over others. With 3 bathrooms, and enough sleeping areas, everyone was happy. Sheets, towels, soaps, and many more items were provided. It really did feel like home. Even down to tiny details like candles, coolers, and spices for cooking.

The drive way to the garage was big enough for 3 or 4 cars. Lots of space for playing in the back yard. This neighborhood is quiet, besides the yellow airplane that flew overhead a few times. That was pretty cool. We'd hear trains in the distance, which wasn't a bother.

The house was very clean. Plenty of entertainment with video games, board games, and even used the grill to BBQ.

The owner was very prompt answering phone calls and emails. I would love to stay here again.

Such a nice area

  • 5 of 5

Mike is absolutely fabulous to work with. He got all our questions answered in a timely manner. The house was much better than what I anticipated from the pictures. This house is one you have to see in person. The only issue we had at all was running out of hot water when 6 adults tried to shower in a half hour time period, but that's our fault. We would stay at this house again if the need ever arises for us to be in the area. The neighborhood is so nice and everything is just a short drive away. I loved that we were doing stuff downtown, but could escape to a quite place.

Wedding Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We had 10 family members staying here together for a wedding in town. What a wonderful house it was! The children slept in the back bedrooms while the adults stayed awake in the evenings. The back yard was perfect for corn hole and frisbee. We staggered our showers so that we all had hot water, and we were able to use the kitchen to cut back on eating out. The house is well kept, and it was obvious that the owner was concerned for his guests' comfort. Highly recommend this property!

I rented this property for 9 of my family members and me for my son's wedding. The house was clean, well stocked, comfortable and roomy. The owner was very accommodating and helpful throughout the process.
