Yes, I felt very welcome and the listing was as described. I greatly enjoyed meeting and having breakfast with my hosts.
Beautiful views. Just what we were looking for during our trip to Colgate.
We truly enjoyed our stay at Jonnycake Hill. We stayed there when visiting our son at Colgate and had a fantastic time. The room was lovely and the hosts were so gracious. The view is spectacular. The Bracketts are retired professors from Colgate and as an alum, it was so special to re-connect with them . It's a true gem!
Elizabeth and Tom are the best hosts I have ever met. They are very polite, knowledgable, accommodating and helpful. Spending time with them made my trip more wonderful and unforgettable. They even shared delicious meals with me. Their place is amazing, the views are so beautiful and the bedroom and bathroom are big and clean. I really enjoyed my time there! If there is another chance for me to visit Hamilton, I will choose their place again without hesitation.
Elizabeth and her husband, Tom, made us feel very welcome. The listing description was accurate. The property is near the top of a hill with a gorgeous view of the surrounding countryside.
Elizabeth and Tom were really great hosts, and gave us the chance to talk as much as we wanted, and spend as much time on our own as we needed. They shared very helpful information on the town and Colgate. The view from their home is spectacular and on our arrival, we had the choice of two rooms with different bed arrangements. Breakfast was included - cooked to order, which made the overall value really great (and also more relaxing, since we didn't need to leave as early each morning). We would definitely stay again.
Our stay was delightful. The room was very clean and they were very accommodating. Elizabeth made us a delicious breakfast before we headed out for the day. I would defintely stay again ad highly recommend to any one looking for a place to stay in the area.
