“Exceeded Our Expectations”
Reviewed 5 August 2016 for a stay in July 2016
person found this review helpful

What a pleasure to walk into such a well-appointed home! From a nice selection of spices in the cupboards, to condiments and other staples in the refrigerator, (even a few surprises in the freezer) to the washer pods and dryer sheets with the full-size washer and dryer, to the wonderful decks, we were amazed at the attention to details. The hardwood floors were just beautiful and the home was tastefully decorated. Barbara and Mark were very responsive before and during our stay and were anxious to help make our stay memorable. The Cottage was as described on the site - except there was no mention of the pretty landscaping at the top of the driveway or the fresh herbs on the deck. While there is no dishwasher, Barbara and Mark provided a generous supply of paper plates and bowls for meals where we didn't feel like washing dishes.
We were surprised to see a family of deer grazing in the back yard on our first morning at the Cottage. The beds were comfortable including the inflatable bed our 6-ft tall 17 year-old grandson used. It was so nice to know that we were staying in a quiet family neighborhood where our granddaughter could go for a run without us being worried about her safety. The neighborhood was quiet so we slept well during our stay - there are set "quiet hours" but to be honest, we hardly ever heard anyone other than passing boats and other watercraft on the lake.
We enjoyed eating and playing games on the deck and what fun to have the rope lights and lights on the little tree. We had plenty of seating options inside and out for our group of 5. It is a short trip into Mt. Vernon where there were plenty of options for shopping and restaurants. We spent a day visiting Holmes County and that was also an easy drive - it was the first time our daughter and grandchildren had visited Heini's, Guggisberg Cheese, Lehman's, Coblentz, the Farm at Walnut Creek or Der Dutchman Restaurant and they were not disappointed.
We have stayed in other vacation rentals but this one was easily the best appointed home in which we have stayed. Many thanks to Barbara and Mark for treating us like family and for sharing their lovely home with us. We are looking for reasons to return! We will certainly recommend this property to family and friends.
