Mary was not home, she told us this well before we arrived. She left us the key and excellent instructions about the house. It was a beautiful, comfortable home in a quiet, lovely neighborhood, close to everything.
We did Mary on our last day there. She was wonderful. I highly recommended her home to anyone staying in the area. I would definitely stay there again if I was planning t return visit.
Mary was easy to contact and was responsive to my emails. We met her briefly in the evening when we arrived and didn't see her again. It was like having her house to ourselves--very quiet and welcoming. Would highly recommend staying here if you are in the area.
I stay for one month at Mary's house. Everything was perfect!!!! Mary is a wonderfull host and really nice and she makes you feel at home! The house is pretty, clean and cosy with a beautyfull garden. I was in Kenneth Square to work at the New Bolton Center which is just a 7 minutes drive away with the car. I will definitively recommend to stay at Mary's house if you have to stay in this area for work or holliday. I had a perfect stay in the US thanks to Mary! If I go to Kenneth Square again I know where I will be staying :)!!!! Thank you for everything Mary!
Mary was a terrific host and her home was great. She made us feel as if we were long-time friends visiting for the weekend. From her initial welcome upon arrival in which she invited us to make ourselves at home, to the spacious bedroom, super comfy bed, heated mattress, luxurious en suite bathroom, delicious breakfast fixings, and even the very sweet kitty, everything about our stay was the best and top-notch. Highly recommend!
On my way to her home I sent a message to Mary with an estimate of an arrival time. I also asked for a restaurant recommendation which she provided.
This was my second stay at Mary's home. I stayed overnight on a trip to be with family over the holidays. When I arrived, Mary's son and daughter-in-law had arrived at her home for the holidays. Mary and her family welcomed me and made me feel at home. In the morning we had breakfast together. I brought my own food and prepared it because of dietary needs.
The home is well decorated and well maintained. It feels like family home.
I was treated well and made to feel like a welcomed guest during my stay. I would be happy to return again in the future.
