The Finishing Touches!!
The home is absolutely beautiful, and the location is fantastic. Even though the house is old, it was warm and very safe. The beds were extremely comfortable and so were the pillows. The showers had great pressure and the water was nice and hot. The kitchen had everything we needed. The house was very clean, and the driveway was completely cleared of recent snow. The best part of the stay were the little extras that were provided by the host. After a day of traveling it was so amazing to open the fridge to a bunch of special treats. We really appreciated this! The only thing that I would suggest is the host looking into a less expensive cleaning service as the cleaning fee was the highest I've ever paid especially for a short stay. Everything else far exceeded our expectations.
We loved everything about our stay. The house is beautiful and very convenient to New Hope and Lambertville. The owners provide everything you need, including coffee, shampoo and soap. They even had a bouquet of fresh tulips. What a great experience!
