Jennifer was friendly and was very accommodating. It was my first experience with Airbnb. My family loved the experience and give our highest recommendation.

We had a wonderful time at the farmhouse. The house is beautiful and decorated wonderfully. I loved the horse theme throughout and the remodeling was beautiful! We stayed with our two Littles ones, 9 mo. and 3 yrs. They both loved all the toys, and my oldest really liked sleeping in the kids room. It was so peaceful, and they slept great. The floors are pretty squicky, but our girls got used to it after awhile for sleeping. We did hear the basement tenant come and go at night, but they didn't stay long and were fairly quiet. We traveled a lot during our stay, so we're really only at the farmhouse to sleep at night. Its located right across the street from a beautiful paved trail. I'd suggest checking it out if you have time. And there's a great view of Mt Kato from the house. One thing I'd suggest is to bring your own drinking water. Well water has an aquired taste. ;) We're so happy to have stayed at the farmhouse, it was perfect!

The Charming Farmhouse was the perfect weekend getaway. My sister and I had originally planned a winter weekend getaway with our dogs, but mother nature decided to serve up a 60* weekend in February. The farmhouse is perfect is you're looking to go skiing, or hike the local trails. I fell in love with the kitchen and the bathroom. The back half of the driveway was a bit muddy due to melting snow, but there is a concrete driveway leading up to the house. Jennifer was very responsive, and answered all my questions and concerns. I know that Jennifer will be making some changes with how the house is taken care of, so stay tuned! Living in a 110 year old house myself, I know the care and dedication it takes to maintain a home like Jennifer's. I'm impressed, and will definitely be back.
