The house is located in a quiet, wooded neighborhood, very peaceful. The rooms are spacious and functional, and there is plenty of room for kids to run around in the yard outside. Alison greeted us at check in to show us the ropes and was accessible by phone for the duration of our stay. Everything was very straightforward and we had a great experience. Thanks!

Response from Alison:
Thanks Katrina. You and your family were a pleasure to host! Apologies for the lack of the local TV channels. I've just "cut the cord" to TWC, and am researching the antenna options. Thanks for the feedback! When you come back to visit, I'll have it in place for you!

The perfect home/cottage for a family getaway. My extended family stayed at Alison's home when visiting the area for a university graduation ceremony. It was close enough to town to be convenient, and far enough away to allow us to unwind. There was plenty of space for all of us to be comfortable. We loved sitting on the back porch and listening to the rain fall while catching up and retelling old stories. Alison was incredibly flexible in accommodating our requests and made us feel like we were staying at a friend's or relative's home. The next time we have another family gathering in the area, we hope to be able to stay here again!

Response from Alison:
Thanks Brian! I'm so glad you and your family were comfortable here. I know graduation weekend can be really stressful. I love to know my home offers families a place to relax and enjoy each other. You and your family are welcome back any time! Alison

We rented this home for overflow guest when our son got married recently. Our experience was fabulous. Alison was great at communicating and went the extra mile to provide treats for our guests that were staying there. The home was warm and inviting and the neighborhood was true Hillsborough, peaceful and beautiful. We would definitely rent from Alison the next time we have extra people coming into town.
