What others have said:
"Thank you so much for your warm welcome. My husband and I have stayed in a lot of vacation apartments and houses over the years, and I can honestly say that yours is far and away the most comfortable and best furnished of any of them. The kitchen had everything we could possibly want for our month's stay, and we took full advantage of the books and other forms of entertainment you provided. The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms were great, the washer and dryer were better than the ones we have at home, and your restoration of the house is impeccable. You and your family struck the ideal balance between being responsive and friendly and allowing us our privacy. That's not always the case with landlords, by any means!" - Kate, Summer 2012
