We were just passing thru and needed overnight accommodations. My husband and I were traveling with my mother and adult son. We had thought of getting 2 hotel rooms but decided this would be a better choice. (All 4 of us were able to stay for the cost of one hotel room) We were not disappointed. Jack and Nancy were waiting for us when we arrived. The apartment was comfortably furnished including large living space to gather in. Everything was very clean. There was a large TV, electric fireplace, fans, iron/board , refrigerator, microwave, toaster, keurig, and hair dryer. Also provided were towels/ washcloths, bodywash, and shampoo. There is a shower, no tub. Some extra touches were cold bottles of water, coffee, and cookies. There was a notebook of local information that included a list of restaurants which was very helpful. This was our first VRBO experience and we were not disappointed.

There were 15 (8 adults/7 teenagers) of us, we were all comfortable and there was plenty of room! Loved hearing/seeing the Amish buggies go by all day. We couldn't believe how tall the corn stalks were - at least 10 feet! The area is very pretty and not far from Sight and Sound theatre which is where we were going. Spent a couple days shopping too! I highly recommend this home and will definitely return the next time we go as a group again.
