An amazing and comfortable property
There are few home rental options that serve 25+ people but this fabulous property accommodates this number commendably. The rooms are spacious and the owners, Marijke and Dena, made sure that the little people in our party (twins under two) could thrive in their own pack-n-play cribs too! The kitchen, well-stocked with appliances, utensils, and table settings, allowed for multiple cooks to create together. The large grill in the thoughtfully-constructed patio space came in handy as well as the lovely fire ring (which we enjoyed despite December's chilly temps). The dining space --- typically one of the drawbacks in rentals when seating for 25+ is needed - was large enough for all of us to eat, drink, and be merry together! This was important as we had gathered for my dad's celebration of life - and all of his kids, grandkids, and great grandchildren were present. This wonderful home provided ample space for story-telling in large groups as well as those tender one-on-one or small group conversations that are so essential to family reunions. We also enjoyed the farm aspects of Zigbone. Kids and grown kids alike appreciated the opportunity to feed the resident sheep, goats, chickens, and cats. Our Golden Retriever also bedded down with all of his peeps, grateful for being included. As a yoga teacher, I can see this as a retreat space - the porches and lounges all lovely settings for meditating or asanas. The carriage house provides a cozy, private atmosphere and the reception hall would be spot-on for a wedding reception. This thoughtfully refurbished property, with environmentally-friendly soaps and products in use, is a remarkable testament to the lovely vision of its owners.
