I stayed here for a few nights and had the most wonderful experience. The house is gorgeous - it's spacious, clean, very comfortable, and quiet. The property is amazing - countless acres with plenty of trails and things to do, though town was only a short drive away. The house has a nice view of a waterfall in the distance and overlooks a pond, where we took out a small boat and fished for hours. At night, if we weren't relaxing in front of the fireplace, we spent most of our time on the outside porch looking at the stars - it made it a nice place to spend the evening. We were in search for a relaxing weekend away and found the perfect spot, just loved the atmosphere. My only regret is that I hadn't planned a longer trip, but have already booked a return in December.
