Left on 07/27/2013 for a stay in July 2013 | CrazyHikerReviewed Jul 27, 2013Stayed Jul 2013
We had a great time during our stay here with 4 adults and 2 pre-kindergarten age kids. The house is very spacious and the kitchen area worked well for making our own meals. We all enjoyed the pool and spa and spent some time in them each day. The owners were very responsive to my questions before and during our stay. I would definitely recommend this place to family and friends travelling to the area and would stay here again on a return trip.
