“The 8th Hole was the 8th Wonder of AIRBNBs! Easy to get settled in and charming as all get out! We booked extremely last minute when the last leg of a long trip after helping relatives pack up a house proved too exhausting for us. The place was spotless, spic and span! The attention to detail constantly pleasantly surprised us. From a selection of snacks, coffees, teas, etc...to an emergency stash of travelers toiletries from all manner of soaps and shampoos to even brand new in the box toothbrushes and more! Had this been a vacation trip instead, I would have been perfectly comfortable there for an extended stay. Both bedrooms and the living room had alarm clocks that each had 3 usb ports for changing your electronics. There was plenty of kitchenware and appliances, as well as an adorable smiley face scrub sponge for doing dishes. I giggled while doing my dishes! All the things you would need for the comforts of home gift wrapped in a warm and cozy upstairs apartment. Fortunately we got to meet the owner Gail on our way out and she was just as friendly and welcoming as her AIRBNB! A+ all around! Would recommend and definitely would stay again if we're headed through the area. 100% worth the modest price, way better than any hotel! A delightful and handy experience.”
Rustic one room log cabin. Built in 1931. Bathroom is on the back porch with both hot and cold water. The cabin is equipped with an airconditioner, heater, refrigerator, microwave, stove, grill and a queen sized bed. Setting is rural and tranquil. Very quiet, beautiful place to relax and unplug. No TV or WIFI, but good cellular signal.
“This place is a charming little rustic getaway. It reminds me of one of those museum tours where you get a walk-through tour of an d cabin. It is really a simple, old-fashioned hunting or getaway cabin. It's reminiscent of a writer's escape. At first glance it reminds me of an old cabin in a horror film, but in a good way. The linens were fresh and there were cards and puzzles in the absence of television. There are little antique decor items throughout this snug little cabin. There's a firepit outside as well as a small grill. The bathroom is off the porch and is just a simple sink, toilet and shower, but they are clean. Linens are provided. There's a coffee maker in the kitchen along with a few other supplies. The bed was really comfortable and I slept like a baby (in spite of my initial fear of it being an old haunted cabin). My daughter and I walked the grounds- which are beautiful. I could hear all kinds of wildlife and even could hear an owl hooting as I fell asleep. It's definitely an interesting little getaway, but those who aren't used to these kinds of escaped would fare better at a hotel. It was perfect for us for the night. Tip- make sure to follow the hosts mapping instructions or the GPS will lead you elsewhere.”
Peaceful 2 Bedroom farm home surrounded by fields and woods with 1 California King bed and 1 Queen bed. 1 bathroom with tub/shower. Full Kitchen with appliances including washer/dryer. TV's in bedrooms and living room. Clean smoke and pet free environment (outdoor dog kennels available). Owner is closest neighbor and available for any questions, concerns or hospitality requests. This home is about 5-6 miles from town and about the same distance from Interstate 70.
“This is an absolutely adorable home! It’s off the beaten path and very quiet. The home was sparkling clean and so comfortable. The king bed mattress is wonderful and we had a lovely night’s sleep. We were there for only one night, and I wish we could have stayed longer. Definitely follow Pamela’s driving directions, as our GPS was definitely taking us the wrong way. I highly recommend this listing!”
