Sparkling clean13 recent guests have said that this home was sparkling clean.

Do you like being pampered and spoiled when on vacation? Do your dogs too? :-) I know I do, so I made sure I designed a getaway that would give my guests that experience. I paid close attention to all the details like an incredibly comfortable recliner, the mounted TV that extends fully to view from all areas of the room, the plush beds and bedding, the selection of sleeping pillows, and the drawers and cabinets filled with “oops, I forgot or ran out” items. The 1/2 acre yard is a dog paradise!

You are very welcome Elaine. I am so happy you are both ok but so bummed you didn't get to have the celebration you planned on. The Little House is waiting when you are ready. Hoping you both feel better soon.

Thanks for writing a detailed review Robert! I always appreciate the feedback and I love knowing you all had a great time. Maybe come back in the winter next time. My yard is great for sledding and I keep some sleds in the shed.

Thanks so much for the great review Max! Hooray! I love it when guests fall in love with the experience as much as me and my family do. I am about to add even more highlights to the Little House with 3 small decorative windows to let in more natural light in the kitchen and I am currently designing another barn style slider door for the bathroom. Come on back again and get your 10% off for re-booking! Until next time!
