The house was very well appointed. The furniture was opulent. The open floor plan allowed us lots of family time while most of the action was in the kitchen/dining/living room area. The kitchen was stocked with a nice selection of pans, plates and utensils. We were able to complete all the cooking for our Christmas holiday with ease. The wifi was also an added bonus. The five of us had enough room to feel comfortable for the four day stay. It was also convenient to grocery stores and services, which was fantastic.
On the down side, the 4th bedroom was not in a "den" but in the alcove at the top of the stairs making it difficult for the person in that bed to sleep before everyone else was in for the night. The pantry was so crowded with cleaning supplies that we had no place to store food for our time at the house. We kept the food in the bins we had brought for our holiday on the floor of the pantry. The master closet is also filled with things that are being stored, so guests cannot make use of the closet.
The owners are careful with their property which is a plus, but the notes left around the house telling guests to keep shoes off the carpet, to not use metal in the pans (even though the pans are not nested w/pads to avoid scratches), or when to take the garbage to the curb made the home seem not as friendly as it could have been. Perhaps a note welcoming guest and offering their preferences for the property would be a better method of communicating their desires. I would recommend the house, but with reservations if a family was traveling with smaller children. And it would definitely be a great fit for someone on extended corporate travel who wanted a home away from home feel.
