Great getaway place for a larger group
Amazing house on large, private grounds. Excellent for larger groups. Ample common spaces, open kitchen design and a pool. We especially enjoyed the surround-sound music system.

Great country fun in the heart of city.
We had a great time here. The house was clean and the kids loved catching all the fish! Definitely going to stay here again if we come back to Gainesville.
