Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely stunning home and surroundings. It was perfect for gathering our group of close friends for a weekend of laughing, cooking great food together, gathering by the fire, enjoying the hot tub and just relaxing.

The owners had everything there that we had hoped for and were friendly, accommodating and wonderful. Seven friends and I had an amazing weekend and highly recommend the cider house to anyone looking for a place that is peaceful and comfortable.

Family get together

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful secluded peaceful home. My mother(92) and I really enjoyed the two baby deer, squirrels and chipmunks that came to play. My children and grandchildren really enjoyed picking blackberries and seeing the fish in pond. We enjoyed the hot tub in evening. If not for rain would have enjoyed fire pit. The home is lovely has everything you would need. Thanks for the ramp it helped a lot. We talked about renting again for a holiday get together. Thank you again for working with me on our stay

Away for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

Truly a lovely place. The home is just as it appears. Warm and inviting, large enough to let the kids play with their new toys!!! The fireplace was very nice, the bed was comfortable. Everything you need to cook and celebrate. We want to return in the spring to enjoy the hot tub and fire pit. Lots of glass to enjoy the outdoors from inside too. Our host was very nice and was very responsive when we had a question. We will be back.
