The home was beautiful and useful. Everything was clean and worked well. The forest and nature were very close
We spent a girlfriend weekend in Utica. The cabin was very nice and clean and had all of the amenities that we needed. It was close to the park and downtown Utica. We'd definitely stay again.
We had a nice stay at the villa! We had 4 adults and 4 kids 4 and under, and the place was spacious and clean. We spent a morning at the water park which needs some TLC, but our accommodations were awesome. It would be nice to get a new frying pan because the one there is falling apart, and have a new dish sponge available for washing dishes, but otherwise we were pretty well stocked. We would definitely comeback again.
I REALLY ENJOYED MY STAY IN UTICA.THE CABIN WAS VERY SPACIOUS AND CLEAN.THE OWNERS RESPONDED IN A TIMELY MANNER REGARDING ANY QUESTIONS I HAD DURING MY STAY.OVERALL IT WAS A VERY PLEASENT EXPERIENCE.MAY CONSIDER GOING BACK IN SUMMER IF PRICES ARE REASONABLE.
