Quiet getaway exceeds expections.
My husband and I are still talking about what a wonderful time we had celebrating our 43rd wedding anniversary at Smallwood. The home which also includes a garage apartment was nestled among many hardwoods and pines in a quiet but accessible neighborhood. The VRBO description and photos aptly represent this lovely property. We were struck by the obvious care with which the home had been decorated and equipped, and we enjoyed the eclectic art and book collection which gave the home much charm. The home was very neat and clean, and I felt completely comfortable with our 9 month old grandson crawling on the floor. My favorite spot was the screened porch where we were able to relax and have some of our meals. Although we didn't use the croft (garage apartment) often, it was great to have the option to shower there and read quietly while others watched TV in the cottage. The property is within walking distance of a lovely community garden and is very close to perhaps the best restaurant we have tried in Highlands called On the Verandah. It is also within a five minute drive to downtown and a leisurely drive to various trails. I have rented a number of homes on VRBO, but I do not recall another owner taking such interest in us and being so thoughtful. Her instructions on directions to the house and general use of the house were detailed and complete. She truly thought of everything to make our stay enjoyable and comfortable. I feel very fortunate to have rented this property.
