4.8/5Exceptional! (36 reviews)
Cute Midcentury Modern vibe.
"Wendy was easy to work with and very responsive. The property was clean and had a cute retro vibe. The only slight downside with the place was that even though the property was within 7 miles of our wedding venue, with the traffic lights it took us about 20 minutes to get to the venue."
