Olde Mad River Farmhouse was great. It was nice and cozy.
Farmhouse was just the perfect fit for my family and I. It had all we needed and more and close to public attractions.
Very beautiful and historic farmhouse
We spend the weekend as a family enjoying the spacious and well kept farmhouse. We loved the surroundings and the decorations of this house. Would love to come back again!
Amazing vintage farmhouse
We really enjoyed our stay at this vintage farmhouse. It was clean and convenient with everything we needed for our stay.
The house was everything it promised to be and more!
Cozy and accommodating! The backyard had so many fun things for the family to enjoy! Not terribly buggy at all. Cher was helpful and a wonderful host throughout our week there! Basic need and then some were available all over the house. Highly recommended!
great place to stay!!
We booked our reservation as a Christmas present to our family so we could all be in one place after the holiday season! It had plenty of rooms and bathrooms to accommodate our growing family. The great room was an amazing gathering place for us all to be in one room together, playing games, lighting a fire and hanging out as a family! We will def be back!
This was a great house. We had 9 people in our group and there was plenty of room to spread out. The great room with a large fireplace was amazing! the beds were very comfortable and the owner Cher Duffield was very accommodating and pleasant to work with. You can't go wrong with this rental.
