What guests are saying:

April Ricotta
Beautiful home away from home on the Rail Trail
Our family spent a month in this home and loved every minute of it. The location couldn’t be better, the hosts incredibly accommodating and helpful, and the house was everything we needed! We couldn’t have been happier with our stay. Walk out the backdoor onto the Rail Trail! What a dream!
