Fantastic! Bethany is a wonderful host!
A very cosy place! All of the wood details make it incredibly homey. Sitting outside under the lanterns at night was very relaxing. Feels like you're in a cabin in the woods, but you're right in town. The only negative is the neighborhood houses backing up to the home, it takes away the secluded feel a bit, but once you're inside, you can't tell. Would be a great place to have friends over for a dinner or some wine, definitely a lot of entertaining space, though it was just the two of us. I wish we would've had time to curl up in one of the many reading areas with some of the books in the extensive collection. All of the personal touches made by the owner were great, we loved the wedding story! A great place to stay, and not too far from downtown if you're planning on seeing the sights.
Bethany was great in her communication and was a lovely hostess. Her property is serene and the house is very well designed and cosy. Everything was very new and clean. The screened in porch was an especially good "nice to have ".
