The house was lovely and well kept. The housekeeper Anton is so kind, polite, and professional. He lists his cell phone number at the house in case you have any questions or problems. We called him a couple times during our 3 night stay and he was always there about 15 minutes later. (He lives offsite). You get an actual key to your room, so no one else staying there can just open your door.The house (including kitchen and bathroom) is clean and stayed warm throughout our stay. The house also provides dishes, glasses, silverware (all of which you can wash), pots, pans, and spices for cooking, and complimentary milk (provided by Anton). If you want to buy food to prepare your meals in the kitchen, a grocery store (Bonus) is just a 5-10 min walk away. There are three rooms on the bottom floor and two on the top floor. I saw all of the rooms, they are all a bit different, but in my opinion, equally nice. I highly recommend this place if you are on a budget- GREAT value! Not over-priced at all :)
