We were able to walk to everything. We do hope to return. thank you for sharing your beautiful place. Rick and Sandy

The house was open, beautifully decorated, and smelled great when we walked in. Loved the fresh flowers. It was an easy walk to downtown, and even better it was nice and cool. In Texas summer the great AC and all the ceiling fans are a must. Would stay again
