My husband and I searched extensively online and came across this gem. We have used plenty of great vacation rentals and this one is the stand-out of them all!
We pulled into the driveway and were overwhelmed with how incredibly beautiful the setting was. This was before we had even parked the car! Once inside we found the house to be just as represented in the photos - squeaky clean and beautifully decorated.
The front door has keyless entry which is so convenient! There were simple house rules, brochures, local information, menus all compiled on the kitchen counter. So simple and easy. The owners live down the road. (There are only two houses within sight of this rental and they are at a distance through the trees.) The owners were available should we have needed anything, but they were also out of sight so we were in our own bubble here.
The owners didn't scrimp anywhere. There are chubby white terry robes available for the hot tub as well as a stack of towels. The bathroom towels are some of the thickest I've seen. The bed linens are quality too; layered coverlets and banks of pillows. The small things are just as nice too like fancy hand soaps and room sprays, and lots of seasonal flowers.
The kitchen had everything we needed plus room left in cupboards so we could put away groceries to keep everything tidy.
The house is a modest size but there are plenty of areas to spread out: sun room, hot tub, front porch or back deck, besides the living room and bedrooms.
Outside.... Ahhhh.... Sweeping lawns, field and forest. Fish pond with dock. Rope hammock under towering trees. Darling small white barn with porch and swing. Pastures of contented horses. Ducks and egrets lunching at the pond. Lazy adirondack chairs and firepit. Cornhole and fishing poles available. Across the road are fields, trees, ponds, and row upon row of grapevines.
Two things that are little but that I really appreciated were the bathrooms were so big and roomy, and the coffee table in the living room has that lift top that comes up like a table. Little things, but made our stay nicer.
We are Mayberry fans and made frequent quick trips into Mount Airy. We will be sure to stay here when we next come to the area.
This house was perfect.
