Lovely getaway spot

A romantic getaway spot. Elegant accommodations. There were many little extra touches in the room that enhanced the ambiance. Lovely view of the pond from the private porch. We highly recommend this place!

Relaxing night in an inviting atmosphere

Feels like home right away! Quiet, peaceful, pretty decor and well accommodated. Nice grounds with a small pond and seating area that apparently you can fish in! Nice selection of DVDs to watch, new kitchen appliances and gorgeous bed and bath rooms. Loved it!

Pathetic experience. Scary and Very Old. Never recommend.

Pathetic experience. The guest house was very old with stinky smell and dust all over the place.
No lighting.inside the house.All bedrooms were upstairs and scary to get In. One of our friend fell down from stairs and had broken leg. Won’t recommend at all. Worst of them all is: After giving quote the owner called us and increased $100 more and advised us to book the house directly without VRBO in between. With No other choice at that time we booked the house and had worst experience.
After 2 days of nightmares, The owner charged us $300 more for the cleaning fee apart from the cleaning fee he charged upfront. Gave adamant reply emails. I am going to disputed the additional fee.
