"What a sweet, snug, comfortable home. TansyHus clearly has been renovated with love by people with great taste and style. And like any good Swedish house, its kept neat as a pin and clean as a whistle. Thoughtful touches abound-like hooks everywhere you'd need them, a cupboard full of teas, and a kitchen better equipped than my own. The location was ideal, I'd wander down the hill to shop or dine, then return to the quiet front porch to read and watch the yellow swallowtails cruise past. TansyHus was lovely for a solo vacation but I couldn't help imagining what fun it would be to come back for a long weekend with my sweetie or a group of girlfriends."

Some of our guest's comments about their stay at TansyHus:
"Our stay at TansyHus was fantastic. It is a beautiful place. We were all impressed with how well it was prepared for visitors, especially the kids. The box of toys and games were a huge hit. Thanks for making everything so smooth." Lewis & Lisa
"We sent the dogs to the kennel so that we could truly RELAX! I think we are onto a new tradition." Shannon
"I and my book club had a delightful stay at TansyHus. We will be
back...breathtaking setting." Pat D. "My friend's 40 BD was an event to remember. We started the day on Saturday with Swedish pancakes at Bogus Cafe, followed by a relaxing visit to the Spa just down the hill. We were so relaxed that it just seemed like too much work to drive even 5 miles for dinner. We brought in dinner, a fabulous bar-b-que main dish with a fresh salad, from Bogus just down the hill. This is going to be an annual event for us." Lisa B.
