We loved our visit to Karen & Al's beautiful home. They were very gracious hosts!! Karen showed us her artists workshop where she creates paintings and pottery. Bonus of three very friendly cats. We were attending a Family weekend at a UD In Newark. Easy 10 minute drive to campus. Private clean comfortable bedroom and bathroom. Nice breakfasts each morning. I loved the coffee too! We would recommend them and will return Year for our granddaughters graduation next spring. Harry & Sandy Ericson

Karen and Al are so helpful and kind. The decoration of the house is fantastic and you can say it is a art work. The cats are so cute and I can't stop petting them everyday! And nature scenery around the house is very nice. The only one inconvenience is that waiting time for Uber to come here.

Response from Karen And Al:
Thank you Simon and May. We really enjoyed having you. You are both so sweet. The cats think so too! LOL. I was stunned to learn that Uber even came to our area. That's why I have it in my listing that you need a car since our location is fairly rural. We wish you both the very best in your future.

They are very nice couple. The last day we took a visit at Karen's art studio and she gave us two butterfly as gifts which is unexpected kind!! We love three cats especially Princess. I love her so much and she played with us two nights. I just can't help missing her. The bathroom is very clean and the bed is soft.

There's nothing more relaxing to us than staying at a friendly home filled with great art. That's exactly what our short stay with Karen was like, as we traveled between Baltimore Inner Harbor and the Brandywine Museum. She is a kind, creative and very welcoming host; we are grateful to have met her and hope to cross paths again. Highly recommend!

Great stay. Great location, close to many wineries. Karen and Al were very welcoming in their lovely house. We felt right at home.

Karen was an exceptionally gracious host who went above & beyond 'due diligence'to text us very helpful info (re restaurants, concert, great nearby nature spot, etc). She also provided a variety of delicious breakfast offerings, considerably beyond the "continental" designation. It was delighful to have access to her well lit deck and gazebo. She couldn't have been more friendly & accomodating! We'll be happy to return.
