Three of the five siblings up in our pine tree.
We had a wonderful stay at the Gracious Home. The house very specious, with very large 5 bedrooms. Plenty of room for our two families with 5 kids all together. Kids loved the bedroom with a mini loft by the windows, perfect for coloring and playing with dolls!
Mermer was very helpful with directions and providing plenty of information before our arrival. We were greeted by Jackie, who showed us around and provided plenty of information regarding the house and activities in the area.
The house was very specious and truly charming. Kitchen had everything we needed. Kitchen is shared with the tenant, who lives in the suite downstairs, but the entire weekend we haven't seen the person. In the kitchen there are very clearly marked cabinets used by the tenant, which we stayed away from. Also there is a separate refrigerator for guests, the main one is used by the tenant, again clearly labeled, so we didn't have any problems with this.
We loved the wrap around porch, where we spent the afternoons, grilling, and sitting around, while kids were running around very the large yard, picking apples from old apple tree behind the yard (I hope we weren't trespassing). The highlight of each evening was relaxing in front of the rustic fireplace.
We come to the area each year for the Columbus weekend, mainly for the Octoberfest in Hunter, but we were surprised to find a fall festival happening almost in front of the house, on the Main Street! Kids loved it, and we didn't have to drive looking for activities - perfect!
We really enjoyed our weekend and would definitely stay here again.
Mermer and Eric, thanks to have been with us. You are the kind of people we like to where time with. Mermer thanks for your book, I am reading it. Eric thanks for the snake, I was little scared :-)
