Verified reviewexcellent

The large house in which we stayed was beautifully finished and appointed with fine furniture and appliances. It truly had a manor house feel to it.The staff were very obliging and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble for Heidi and her team. The farm is tranquil and we were treated daily to the buck crossing the farm in the morning and late afternoon.
