"Have you looked at the listing for this property? The photos don't do it justice. The building is HUGE! The kitchen area was large enough for all 58 of us to gather for family events and meals. The basement is even bigger. With a little coordination, the bathrooms were enough for everyone to get showered and ready for church on Sunday morning. The bedrooms are clean and there are beds galore! We were there during a very hot time, but the building stayed nice and cool thanks to all the air conditioners. Outside, there are playsets for the kids and plenty of grassy areas to run and play on. We had room for yard games and large inflatables, which we rented from the owners for a reasonable fee. There is also a fire pit with lots of tables and bench close by so we could all do smores at the same time.
And let me tell you about Daniel and Lana. They are very responsive. We had a few things that needed attention and they fixed them immediately. One of the A/C units in one of the rooms was not working very well, and they completely replaced it as soon as we told them!
Other good things you won't be able to tell from the listing:
The kitchen is very well stocked with cooking implements. They had crockpots, etc., in the pantry, 3 refrigerators, plenty of dishes, and a dishwasher.
Outside has several shade trees so it was nice to be out there even on hot summer days.
The basement is WAY bigger than it looks in the photos. There was a pool table, air hockey table, and ping pong. And then a whole lot of space for gathering. the other side of the basement had a video projector and foosball. There were also two arcade-style game consoles with hundreds of games on them. So, inside or outside, the kids were never at a loss for things to do with their cousins. In fact, the movie projector was only used for two movies over 4 days because of all of the activities available.
Overall, we were 100% satisfied with our rental of this place. All of the adults in our group agreed that it was the perfect place to gather. If you have a large family and you want to get them all in one place, this is the place. We had space for everyone. We could put babies upstairs away from the noise while the rest of us played and visited. And older kids can play outside and inside. The kitchen is great for meal prep for large groups. Plenty of space, 3 fridges, a rolling island in the middle, lots of shelves for storage. And Daniel and Lana are great."
