Great Getaway Part II

  • 5 of 5

My husband and two children went back to this spot with our extended family and had a blast. All of the space makes it a great place for the kids to put all of their energy to work! As other reviews have mentioned, this place is not fancy at all, but it's wonderful for people looking for a different type of getaway. The house is totally unique with tons of history. We spend most of our time there hanging out in the yard, going for short hikes, playing ping pong and board games. We love being off the grid with no cell phone access because it actually forces us to relax!

Got married here and returned for another stay!

  • 5 of 5

I got married here 3 years ago and returned for a weekend with family in May -- we love it! Beautiful, private feel to this property with a ton of possibilities for outdoor activities -- hiking, swimming, tennis, walking around the pond, etc. The house is large and rustic with its own quirks that understandably come with a home with a rich history, as I would expect in general with older homes. It might not be up your alley if you're looking for modern or new interior space, but it's perfect for a quaint country getaway. I find its unique qualities to give it a kind of character that one can't easily find in other places. A great place to get together with family and/or friends to relax, recharge, and spend time outdoors!

Relaxing retreat

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here for a family reunion after falling in love with it when I had my wedding here in 2010. Again, it was so charming and peaceful, and my whole family enjoyed using the grounds - the pool, tennis court, pond...so much to do! It was a truly relaxing vacation and it was so nice to have so much space for our family to spread out and enjoy the property. Definitely recommend.

Absolutely charming!

  • 5 of 5

I rented this house for my wedding and my husband and I were thrilled with it! We got rave reviews from our friends and family, who stayed in the house with us. The setting is gorgeous and private - perfect for a country wedding or family gathering. There are tons of activities to do without even leaving the property - swimming, tennis, boating, and more. You can't beat the amount of space, which makes it so comfortable for large groups. A beautiful getaway!

Relaxed Space for a HUGE family get together

  • 5 of 5

We were so thrilled with our stay at Big Indian Springs. We had over 40 people stay at the house, and all were quite comfortable. The scenic views from the porch was worth the trip on their own. We had dinner every night out on the porch, and even had a little talent show on the stage. My son and I took the little row boat out on the pond and had a blast. This spot is a great place to unwind and disconnect form the rest of the world. I would highly recommend Big Indian Spring for anyone looking for a low key retreat with lots of great friends and family.

Beautiful Spot!

  • 5 of 5

What a fabulous location, ideal for a rustic wedding! We had a fabulous time hosting a wedding of 80 guests, many of whom stayed in the house with us. We happened to have rain for our wedding, and the indoor theater was a perfect location to move the ceremony inside. We also were able to make use of the large living rooms for the reception, and then went back to the theater for dancing! It is a great setting for a family get-together - people throughout the weekend were able to use the tennis courts, swimming pool, and pond. We loved it!!!
