Excellent. Best rental house we have been in.
Not a single complaint.

5/5 Excellent

We had a wonderful time at The Bassett House. The property is absolutely beautiful, sparkling clean, and has every amenity you could possibly think of. Michael was helpful and friendly in his communications, and ensured we had everything we needed before we arrived, and while we were there. There is a big yard in the back, and a large sunroom with comfortable furniture. Truly could not have asked fir a better experience. Our group is already planning another trip here in the future. Thank you Michael!

Best House Rental Experience Ever
The house and the accommodations from Michael far exceeded our expectations. It was very hard leaving the house on our day of departure. Michael check in with me the week before our arrival to give details on accessing the house (which was a breeze) and answered any questions I had. House was clean and lit up upon arrival. Michael had even stocked the kitchen for us (eggs, pastries, water bottles, sparkling water, bottle of wine, and more) which was very considerate. Instacart was available in the area so we were able to have groceries delivered very easily on the day of our arrival (placed order on Wednesday night and food was delivered on Friday night when we arrived). There are a lot of food delivery options in the area too. The house has this amazing dining table with dining sets that made our group meals very special. The rooms were prepared in a way that it felt like we were staying at a luxury hotel. The beds were extremely comfortable with plush pillows and blankets. The bathrooms were supplied with soaps, shampoo, conditioner, q-tips, cotton balls, shower caps, & more. Michael included framed instructions around the house so we knew how to conveniently turn on/off or operate anything. I give this place 5 stars and I can not wait to come back. I've never had a house rental experience where the host went above and beyond to be very accommodating to the guests. Thank you Michael for a wonderful long weekend!!

5/5 Excellent

Perfect family holiday!
The Bassett House was the perfect setting for our 2020 family holiday staycation. The home is spacious and luxurious with a comfortable and cozy family feel. We enjoyed the impressive kitchen with everything needed to cook a grande meal. The island is magnificent. Our family would love to return again. Thank you Michael! You were a very gracious host.

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful home for our wedding!
The Basset House was the perfect place for our small, intimate wedding. All our guests loved the home as did we. We loved all the details and thought Michael put into our visit including breakfast items, fruit, yogurt and toiletries for the home. We can’t wait to come back and stay for our anniversary!
