Gorgeous property, nice people, and a relaxing stay!
First, I would like to say that I had such a pleasant experience booking this trip. Everything went smoothly, and the owner and caretakers were all very nice and easy to work with. The property was just as amazing as the pictures led it to be and it was so nice to get away from it all. Some things to note... there was no TV, standard coffee maker (that we could find) or microwave. - Personally I did not miss the TV (again, it was nice to get away from it all!) But for those of our party who felt the need to be connected, the house had Wi-Fi. The house also has a really nice Bluetooth speaker system so we enjoyed listening to music much of our time when inside the house. This was a very nice surprise. - And while we couldn't make a pot of coffee there were multiple French presses which are super easy to use. Unfortunately we brought coffee with us which was ground too fine and the only reason I mention it, so that any future coffee drinkers can be prepared. A quick trip to the store for a coarser grind remedied this issue! - The microwave wasn't missed much either, just not something that I had noticed when booking. A helpful hint - The clothes washer is upstairs in the bathroom area, and the clothes dryer is downstairs on the lower level. There is also a drying rack outside which we used when we could. We're guessing the property uses well water which took a little getting used to for us city folk, but overall a non-issue. The kitchen sink had a filter which really helped a lot. The house and bathhouse were fully stocked with supplies and fun things to do - just about anything we could think we might need was found. The kids found a couple of games, books that interested them, life vests for the canoe, as well as an inner-tube and other water toys. Overall we had an amazing time, and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a peaceful vacation!
