Lovely home and setting!

  • 5 of 5

A really great getaway spot, close to everything but also tucked away and private. All of the amenities you need for a great stay. Thanks!

Good for family gathering

  • 4 of 5

The property was private and the house was large - we had seven adults and managed just fine. We did not have access to the garage, which would have been a plus. Curiously, the lighting was insufficient: no light over the kitchen sink and no light in the showers. Also, the sliding door to the deck did not lock; it was unlocked when we arrived, and there was not even a stick to put in the track. When we all left the house one day, we decided to hide laptops, our Apple TV and two very expensive musical instruments. They were all there when we returned. The house, beds and towels were all clean, and the AC worked well. We followed the check out instructions to the letter and received our deposit back. All that said, the house worked for us but lacked some amenities.

Perfect for a girls weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! Yes there are lots of rules but that is what keeps the house so nice. There is tons of space and places for people to sleep. Loved the deck and hot tub. We came for a girls weekend and it was perfect!! We went on the Wine Trail and this house was in close distance (about twenty to thirty minutes from the start of the trail). Would definitely recommend! We even had to contact the owner and she instantly replied!

Beautiful and peaceful home, with the perfect mix of modern and rustic.

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom modern cabin in the woods. Everything was fresh and clean, with lots of wood finishes/furnishings. The hot tub was a great treat, and comfortably fits 4-5 people. That said, be sure you have at least a couple of moderately strong individuals to get the rather heavy cover off and on.

The large, modern kitchen had plenty of utensils, cutlery, pots/pans, and dishes. There is a dishwasher. Be sure to bring your own coffee, however. The upstairs living room has a large, and very comfortable leather sectional sofa, and leather recliner. Tiled walk-in shower is nice, but could use additional lighting. The bed was comfortable, but may not be the best choice if you have serious orthopedic issues.

Krisha runs a tight ship here, and the rules were somewhat intimidating, in terms of both specificity and amount (not to mention severity of penalty for non-compliance... I don't know to what extent Krisha enforces the explicit penalties in the Rental Agreement, a copy of which is kept in one of the kitchen drawers, but there are a couple that seem like they may have been designed to deprive the renter from getting their security deposit back). That said, the rules really aren't anything that a reasonably responsible group/family shouldn't be able to handle, such as putting the used towels in the laundry room before leaving, putting the trash (in bags) in the trash cans outside, no loose trash, keeping the hot tub cover on when not in use, no food in the bedrooms, etc. We found the only somewhat difficult provision to be making sure that all the dishes were not only clean but put away on our last day, with a check-out time of 10:00 a.m. Again, the rules are more intimidating than they are difficult, and you can hardly fault Krisha for trying to make sure that guests contribute to keeping this lovely home lovely.

We would definitely stay here again, and would recommend this home for any group/family looking for a peaceful country get-away.
