Interaction with Guests
We airbnb the upstairs and downstairs level of this house. I ask that both guests be respectful of each other :) We will meet you to show you the property and provide you with some travel information, but we do not live here.
This is a very lovely park like setting in the middle of town with easy access to everything. The bedrooms were very comfortable and although there was no air conditioning the house is well shaded and the fans provided worked really well.
The kitchen is well equipped and the downstairs laundry worked well. The hosts were really helpful and truly went out of their way to assist with any concerns.
So much nicer than staying at any hotel.
House was cozy and had everything we needed for a stay. There was 8 of us and there was enough room for everyone. Thanks Christina.
This is an excellent cottage and I recommend it to anyone. Even though its in the suburbs, it feels like you are in a cottage in middle of no where. The host was very responsive and took every care to make our stay wonderful.
We had a great weekend staying at Christina's place! Everything that we needed was there and was close to all the rinks that my son's team played in. So much better than a noisy hotel full of hockey teams.
We enjoyed our stay at this homey 'cabin'. It was quite comfortable and warm during our winter stay and a nice place to spend the holidays. Having a log fire was an added bonus and it lent a cozy vibe to the environment. The outside property likewise contributed to our feelings of being home for the holidays. It was great to be able to roam around in the outdoors and explore nature with our young son, who loved seeing the wild turkeys and romping in the snow. This is a good place for a small family to stay for any length of time. We certainly made ourselves at home and Christina helped us remain comfortable and provided us with support when a couple of things (like the Internet or a fuse) caused us some problems. The house and its furnishings have a lot of character and I would recommend it to those who are interested in a rustic atmosphere with nature at their doorstep.
A really great rental! Property exactly as described, tidy and well kept. The location is great and the the 4-acre yard is very scenic. We really enjoyed our stay.
This was my second time staying at this cottage. Just like the first, our family had a great time. Christina is always available when needed and I will definitely stay here again.
