This is a fantastic house. If you are a people who like to explore the history and secrets of an old castle, this is the place to be. The room is nice and comfortable. All the other rooms are welcome to visit and explore. They are very beautiful and we took a lot of pictures. Sherry made us very good breakfast and we loved listening to the history of the house. There are lovely cats walking around and they just got two puppies. It is nice to live in a house like this and we wish we could stay longer.
Sherry and Darlina were great hosts! The house and room were clean, there were fresh towels in the bathroom everyday, and they made breakfast for us every morning. I would definitely stay there again.
Wonderful experience! We really felt welcomed into the family, they are such warm hosts. We especially liked Harrison's tour of the mysterious castle. So glad we tried AirBnB instead of a hotel.
This place is amazing! Sherri and Darlena are the absolute best. They completely accommodated me and my guests (I was in town from Nor Cal for a wedding). Breakfast was great. The house/property are breathtaking; there was something to see everywhere we walked. Everyone was so friendly. I loved it!!!!! Big Thank you!
This was great, a beautiful house, everyone very friendly and helpful. great neighborhood.
This was the perfect ending to our trip to six flags fright fest, we went to all the haunted mazes and around 1 am came to stay over to avoid the long drive home; the house all dark at night coming in gave it a spooky touch to our trip but nothing scary Darlene and Sherry are very friendly and helpful they do a wonderful job hosting and gave us a great pancake breakfast, tea, coffe, milk, eggs and all included at a very good rate.
We will definitely be coming back to visit.
Sherry really knows how to be a great host: I've spended more that two months and in the end I've really felt like being part of a big family. And the place is absolutely incredible, I've enjoyed even just to spend some time wondering around, or relaxing in one of the many common places, sharing a bit of time with her or many of the other guests. I've been there for a short internship at the JPL, that is reachable on foot in less than 20 min, and I recommend this place to everyone (expecially for other intern) !
