5/5 Excellent

Adorable place, wonderful hosts!
Starting from our initial booking, we felt cared for by our hosts. Carol was quick to reply to queries, and sent much information just before our arrival, including links to things to do in the area, check-in instructions, and a list of what was provided in the “Mod Pod.” It was exactly as pictured, and was clean and well-stocked with kitchen needs, towels, paper goods, and basic spices & seasonings. We had mentioned we were vegans, and Carol & Pete went out of their way to leave us some farm fresh vegetables from a nearby farm stand, which were delicious! They also left doggie treats and bowls for our old dog Willy. The Mod Pod was lovingly decorated in-theme, right down to the “Retro” microwave and boldly colored chairs in the small, private yard. We were not surprised, because the little touches seemed in character with their attention to detail. Because of the pandemic, our interactions with Carol and Pete were brief (and safe), but even in those interactions we could feel their warmth and genuine care for us and the quality of the stay. We would definitely stay at one of the cute cottages on their property again without any hesitation!

5/5 Excellent

Great Peaceful Getaway
Pete and Carol were the best hosts. The Mod Pod was very clean and had everything we needed for our visit. They gave us plenty of ideas of things to do and where to get food. Andy’ Meat market and the Rolling Gardens Market were great. Even got food to take home. Our dog loved the enclosed yard. The screened in porch was great since we had some rain. It is a beautiful area. Remote but close to anything you moving want or need. It was a very relaxing and peaceful getaway.

5/5 Excellent

Everything exceeded our expectations
The online photos didn't do this property justice. Carol and Pete were the perfect hosts. We can't wait to go back.

5/5 Excellent

Home away from home
We live in the quiet country at our permanent home so this quiet country setting was perfect for us. I don't think we have ever stayed at a place that provided so many extras. Fresh baked scones, fresh eggs, coffee, tea are just a few to mention. Very accommodating and welcoming.

5/5 Excellent

Mod pod
The property was as described. It had everything that you could ever need. The kitchen was stocked plus the wonderful owners made is homemade scones and provided fresh eggs and homemade dog treats and dogs bowls to make our pets feel at home. It was the sweetest gesture. We enjoyed our stay.
