Love,y private retreat
I almost don't want to tell you how much I love this place so it'll be my secret . It's a great secluded retreat in the middle of a nature reserve . I usually listen to NPR obsessivly but while I was there I enjoyed the constant bird songs so much I almost got annoyed when my friend put on music ( music I normally love ) . The house is simple but has everything you need ( though doesn't have a few things you might want like TV , microwave or a dishwasher ) and is laid out well with an open living room kitchen , two upstairs bedrooms and one very private downstairs bedroom with a patio which is perfect for anyone like a surly teen or a romantic couple that would like some extra privacy . The kitchen was well equipped for cooking with plenty of dishes , pots and pans , a full size refrigerater and stove and ample counter space . The surroundings are bucolic with a pond , waterfall , lots of flowers , butterflies and birds . My dogs were in heaven . There are also some charming small towns and cities nearby for day trips with loads of restaurants and antique stores etc. Just the place if you want to get away from it all . The only thing I didn't like was that the water is sulphury and the water pressure is not great . However , though those things would normally really bother me I loved the place so much it was hard to get annoyed by anything . Pia the owner is easy going and delightful . She is there if you need her and not if you don't . I really enjoyed meeting her and liked her immediately .
