This place was amazing and very welcoming. C & J were very accommodating with all our needs and last minute booking. Only a few of us slept over, however my very large family came over and enjoyed the house and the pool and had a fabulous time. I was amazed at how family friendly this place was considering it wonderful history.
We arrived around 4 o'clock on the check in date. Julie, the live-in caretaker, was there to welcome us. She was funny, smart, and very informative of what was expected. We liked that.
The house was much more than what we expected. The pictures really do not do it justice. We felt that it was a very comfortable, historical home touched with graciousness. The grounds were beautiful. They have done a great job with the landscaping.
Our time there was very enjoyable. It afforded us the space to do the things we enjoyed doing. Some could play board games in one room, others could sit and talk in another room, others could swim, and still others could sit and play cards. All the while, we had a kitchen to prepare our own goodies.
The neighborhood was great. We loved being in a country setting.
The thoughtfulness of Cynthia, the owner, and Julie were great in honoring our mother for which we are appreciative.
Our family and extended family that came to celebrate mom's 80th birthday felt that this place was the perfect place.
The home and hospitality was even better than the listing! My family felt welcome and our guests were amazed at the beauty of the home and grounds and the friendliness of the delightful staff.
Listing description was accurate--beautiful, very spacious home. We were even more impressed seeing the house in person. Loved the historical feel of the house and the furnishings. Grounds were perfectly manicured and we felt very comfortable on the property--like it was our own home!
I am sorry that the information I provided on my listing was not clear to you. My listing does say that the home is located in the country and it also very clearly states that we have a live in care taker on site 24/7. The location of the nearest store/restaurant is about 1.7 miles 3 min drive from the house.
Regarding not getting back to you, I am sorry I missed the a notification that I had an email and as I do not check that account daily I missed it. ( I will definitely be checking daily from now on)
Thank you for your feed back and in the future I will confirm with guest that they are aware of the location and that there is a live in caretaker so that there are no surprises.
Julie and Cynthia made us feel very welcome. We stayed with hem for a business trip with 4 other associates. The house was nicer and cleaner than we could have hoped for. Beautiful kitchen fully stocked with cookware etc. Julie made us feel welcome and comfortable. They were flexible with us and went out of their way to accommodate our schedules.

About the Host, Cynthia
We are still new at this but I think we are doing pretty good so far!
Our first guest was a family of ten that stayed for 5 days, it was wonderful to see them enjoy the house and the grounds, they were able to enjoy having their coffee out by the pool in the morning and sip wine by the outdoor fireplace in the evening. It was truly a great first experience! We would love to have them back for a return visit in the future. We have trying to making the house as comfortable as possible and have add as many amenities as we could think of. We are looking forward to having you stay and we hope that you enjoy the mansion and the grounds as much as we do!
