"We found a little bit of paradise"

We loved staying in this unusual apartment in a beautifully renovated barn. The site is gorgeous vista with rolling hills. Our hosts, Bill and Pen, were unbelievable helpful. Bill and Pen, came to guide us to our new home for a week, after getting lost. Upon arrival, Pen put a few staples in the refrigerator, to get us started, for the morning. The next day, Pen came to the grocery store with us, which was only open on Sunday, untill noon. Bill was wonderful, and provided us help during our stay as well. We enjoyed their two dogs, hens, and their beautiful gardens. We found two new friends. We would highly recommend this beautiful home and the area. This vacation was made more special, because of our stay with Bill and Pen.
