This rental has 5 stars on Airbnb, read what the past guests had to say about their experience:

  • Vern’s place was the perfect place to stay for our hiking trip. The kitchen was very well stocked and the bed was comfortable. We loved spending evenings in the garden. This is a great place for people that enjoy outdoor activities and cooking. Thanks Vern, we hope to be back sometime.
  • This place is such a gem! It’s a beautiful old house with a great kitchen, beautiful outdoor space, easy check in, and comfortable bed. We really loved the fire place in the kitchen and the fire pit outside. It’s a great location in easy distance to all the places we wanted to visit. Thank you so much for creating such a wonderful space!

Things to keep in mind before booking, the price per night only includes 1 bedroom so if you’re wanting to use the second bedroom an additional charge will incur, the hosts provide propane but no wood, the hosts may work in the garden at your permission, pets are not allowed, smoking/vaping is prohibited, parties cannot be held here, and the hosts ask that you remove your shoes inside.
