We chose to stay at Homestead for a girlfriend's reunion. Everything about our stay from reservations to check out was wonderful. The home is beautifully restored and decorated. Mary Kay goes above and beyond in making sure your stay will be enjoyable. The cheese and beverage in the evening was a very nice touch. It gave us a chance to relax and enjoy the home before dinner out. Mary Kay had suggestions for restaurants and took care of our reservations. The rooms are good size and are laid out well for having a group together. The bedding was extremely comfortable. The home is kept immaculate. The breakfast served was delicious and plentiful. We would have enjoyed the lovely yard and garden if the weather had been better. So we'll have to come back. Thank you also for your help with my shopping needs it all worked out well.
