You couldn't ask for more!
I wish I could give more than a 5 star rating. The house is absolutely fantastic with amazing views. I had a few questions for the owner and she got back to me right away, even on the day of check in. Book this house, you won't regret it.

5/5 Excellent

Gorgeous house with unbeatable view
We rented this house for my birthday weekend. Outstanding! The weather wasn’t very friendly, but we didn’t care because the house and the view were perfect for a relaxing getaway. We have stayed at many rental homes, but this was definitely the nicest yet. Literally everything you need is provided. We usually bring along a “kitchen bag” with foils, spices, oils, etc. We didn’t need any of that. The kitchen was equipped with EVERYTHING, including an air fryer! The bed was comfortable, and so was the living room seating. The couches and chairs even have USB ports on the sides. And did I mention the view?! I highly recommend this home for anyone. It has plenty of room for a large family (or two!). The basement is an awesome retreat for the kids with a big game room. We are already talking about going back with our adult children, and their kids. We also appreciated the gifts waiting for us from our host: a few bags of delicious popcorn from Bedford Candies. Despite the poor weather, it was a perfect weekend. Thank you!
