Great space to gather and retreat.
I’m not sure what our favorite part of our stay at Sandy Bottoms was but kudos to the kitchen ; easy to work around and loved the stove & oven. Plenty of cooking-dishes-and we absolutely loved the coffee maker. We loved our fluffy towels and the home had a resort feel. Early May is risky time of year we knew going into our stay but needed that date for a graduation celebration and had a beautiful gift awaiting us for this very event VERY thoughtful. We hosted my mom age 84 and she got around the house very well along with adult kids and friends which equaled 6 other young adults and our other daughter & her husband & baby we’re nearby and day visited. I loved how we could squeeze at one very large table. The deck space was neat and the weather cleared up so we did get a day or two on the deck. Only issue outside was the enormous amount of bugs! But we had a great time and made memories and managed a ride or two in the canoes. Thank you for such a great place. The only reason I didn’t give it 5 stars was the bedding on master bed didn’t match the house seemed it was missing a mattress pad &sheet didn’t stay fited but we are bedding snobs and a bit picky on fabrics. Overall we felt very blessed and grateful for our stay there.
