We enjoyed our stay at the Guesthouse very much. John is an amazing host and made us feel at home right away.
The house is arranged very well and offers plenty of room for sleeping accommodations. The kitchen and dining area is spacious and has everything you need to cook your meals, or there is a plethora of dining choices within a short drive.
We would definitely choose to stay here again.

Thank you for your review!

Review title: Wonderful Family Vacation
Stayed At: Lapp Family Guest House

Our family of four with two kids (age 6 and 4) and three grandparents had a wonderful and restful time. The Lapp family guesthouse was well kept and Wi-Fi free which allowed for everyone to be able to focus on each other and enjoy each others company. The swing set was perfect for the kids and most of all the kids had a wonderful experience with the goats next door. John and the family also gave the kids wonderful pony rides and the opportunity to pet and comb the ponies which was a special treat. The rooms were spacious and homey and had all the essentials which was perfect for our stay. Thank you Lapp Family for great hospitality and for a wonderful experience!

Thank you for your review. We're glad you & your family had such an enjoyable stay!

We stayed at the Lapp Guesthouse for four nights and loved every moment! Our family of seven had plenty of room around the house and was impressed by the attention to detail of the owners. The children LOVED spending time with the goats, horses, and swings in the backyard. The adults enjoyed using the well equipped kitchen and taking in the incredible view! We all loved using the fire pit at twilight and playing a board game together in the evening. These are things that we would've NEVER done together at home. At the end of our trip we all returned with clean laundry thanks to the included washer dryer. This place had it all and we are already discussing our return next year. Thank you to the Lapp Family for providing an incredible experience!

Thank you for your informative review!

Review title: Perfect for our kids
Stayed At: Lapp family guest house

The Lapp family guesthouse was perfect for our kids. We only used the first level of the house as we are a family of 5. We loved the house for the kids play room, low beds, crib, swing set AND GOATS! It was a awesome stay and we can’t wait to book again. Just a perfect getaway!

What a beautiful home surrounded by gorgeous countryside. Everything we needed was supplied and John stopped by to make sure we were comfortable and let us know he was right next door if we needed anything or had any problems. The house was spotless and well maintained . It was delightful to sit on the front porch each night of our stay and enjoy the scenery . We will definitely come back soon !

We're glad you enjoyed your stay!
