Excellent family getaway
We recently traveled to this property during our kids' (5 and 7) spring break. We were looking for something relatively close to home (we live near Philly), as we were bringing our newish puppy with us, and for somewhere that would enable all of us to unplug and enjoy some time outdoors. This property was excellent - we arrived Monday evening and only left for breakfast (check out Jubilee Restaurant) Weds, a picnic lunch on the shore of the nearby Gouldsboro State Park (less than 5 min drive), and a pony ride for the kids. My husband loved the sauna and our whole family had fun sitting in the hot tub on the brisk mornings, using the kayaks and canoes on the very calm and safe waterway down the ravine, sitting in the hammock, having lots of camp fires, and generally running around in the woods. There is a group of 7-8 deer that walk through every morning, and they're very calm and unafraid of humans. Inside the house, there were lots of games, some DVD's, and we played endless rounds of fooseball, ping pong, and pool. Be sure to check out the hilarious toilet seat cover in the bathroom that also includes the laundry facilities. Joe was very friendly and communicative throughout. We loved the tiny town/remote nature of the place, and we look forward to coming back.
