Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the homestead with friends in a wedding party for 3 days. We absolutely loved the location and the house was beautifully furnished. We greatly enjoyed sitting out on the lawn under a cool tree reading a book. The home was everything we could have asked for and would recommend others to stay there as well.

Our stay on Thanksgiving 2011

  • 5 of 5
I wish to note that we have since gotten our security deposit, and when logged on to the site to ammend our review we saw the owners response. We are so very sorry you were ill and unable to handle your affairs. We hope your feeling better!

We really did love the house and the location and we would love to rent it again.

Best!

Our Stay for Thanksgiving

  • 3 of 5
We had a lovely time, with only one draw back. The home was clean, had pantry items. A lovely fireplace that offers as a game room. We celebrated Thanksgiving in this home and had a blast. The grounds we well manicured and the location offers lots of outdoor activities. The draw back......we have yet to get our security deposit. We left the home in the condition we found it, we have not heard anything from the owner, though we have emailed them several times. While the amount of the deposit was not astronomical, it is the principle. If not for this mishap I would give this property an excellent rating. I know that we will rethink this site in the future.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the owner was ill for a good part of December and
& beginning of January and could not attend to basic business....
sincere apologies for the delay...we agree to refund security deposits
within 30 days of departure and try very hard to meet that time
frame and usually do with few exceptions....

Amenities

From the Owner

The Collins Homestead offers a glimpse of how Irish immigrants brought their love of the land to the new country..building the same walls of stone and fields of green they left behind....the farmhouse was built in the 1840s and the wood work inside is original ash from trees on the property...the back acreage offers spectacular views of the large hills soaring above the flats....autumn finds an explosion of color and calm; a clear cold night lets one see the Milky Way splashed across the endless sky....Spring brings Nature's first green as gold and brings the blossoms of a prayer garden with memorial trees planted in honor of family who have flown ahead to Heaven....an Angel stands guard over our tree memorial and offers peace and quiet within which to contemplate and pray, if one wishes...
