Reviews from a few of our first guests:

Bill & Nadine
March 2022
This home is now one of our favorite places to escape from the city. The host was exceptionally friendly, communicative, and accommodating, and even showed us his blacksmith shop and artistic pieces! Quite a treat. The scenery is gorgeous, and the horses across the street were fun to watch as they galloped and played. There are 2 gas stoves in this home, including in one of the bedrooms – very cozy! We can’t wait to visit again when spring is in bloom.

This was a fantastic place to stay! Bigger than we thought, and was just a beautiful home and area to be in. We look forward to coming back in the warmer months and really appreciating the outside as well. My kids, who haven’t experienced a lack of tech, had a great few days here. Good way to connect as a family!

We liked this house a lot. It is very big, clean & even if there is no internet, Tv & electricity, we enjoyed our stay & we did not feel that we needed anything else. The kids loved playing with the toys the owner left in the house

The place is very comfortable to stay. As you would expect, there is no electricity and at the beginning this was something that worried us, but at the end we didn’t need the electricity. We had a wonderful time there. The area is so pretty, you will enjoy the view, especially if you are a lover of farmland. The owner of the house Elam is so kind, and he is always available in case you need something. I would really recommend this place for a peaceful vacation or a break from the city. This was a wonderful experience and we would repeat it again.
