I had a great time staying in Lifen and Dan home. The room was clean and well equipped and so was the kitchen, bathroom and dining room. The view from the window was fantastic and the yard and the veranda were extremely pleasant to relax in. Lifen and Dan are very nice and generous and they really make you feel at home. I highly recommend this place.
A short but exquisitely lovely and restful stay The canoe trip Sunday was just what we needed
Lifen and Dan were very genial hosts, and the room was just as advertised. Their house is located in a peaceful neck of the woods, with a beautiful lakefront and a very well thought out yard. It is clean, relaxing, and tastefully designed. The canoe on the lake is an added plus. Moreover, they had awesome recommendations for things to do in the area, that turned out to be pleasantly unforgettable experiences for us. Thanks for the stay! Will definitely like to visit again.
Lifen and Dan were fantastic hosts. The house was clean and comfortable. The location was beautiful, sitting on the finger of a lake in a quiet area, with a well maintained garden and yard. And there was plenty of space to relax, with an especially nice porch. Lifen and Dan themselves were very helpful. They had great recommendations with what to do in the area, and were always willing to help us if we had any questions. Thanks again!
It is such a wonderful place, very peaceful, surrounded with woods, lakefront, hammock, canoe, what else would we ask for? The hosts are very lovely, open, generous, and very accommodating. Definitely will come again here to relax next time I visit Rhode Island.
We had the most wonderful and peaceful time. They are in an absolutely ideal location. So idyllic. We went out in their boat on the lake and met the two swans resident there. We also used their bikes to do a little ride around the neighbourhood. For pics see my Instagram account LIVETHEGLAMOUROUSLIFE. Dan was very attentive and a wonderful host. Very warm person. You'll love it here!
We had an amazing time staying with Lifen and Dan. Their home is beautiful, clean, and relaxing. They are inviting and warm hosts. We will definitely stay again.
