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!

This was our first Airbnb and it definitely won’t be our last. I travel for a living and am in and out of different hotels at least 10 nights a month. Because of travleling so much I have learned exactly what I like and don’t like when on the road. From start to finish this exper…

Thanks again so much Brooke for loving my home and your get away. This review and the wonderful notes you and your kiddos left me are the reasons I love what I do. Hospitality and art are two of my most favorite things so I am so thrilled you enjoyed both while in The Little House. Come on back soon and enjoy the snow. My yard is perfect for sledding and two sleds in the shed await your girls (and of course the adults can sled too :-)

My family and I had such a nice stay at Melissa’s cabin. The backyard, patio, and cabin are clean and we felt so comfortable during our stay. The cabin is located close to the local downtown restaurants and shops. Melissa was quick to respond when we had any questions.
