Testimonials

Lovely home, beautiful surroundings, well mannered horses.

We house/horse minded for Kathy & Rory the winter of 2016/17. They are good people who were always avail by txt or call to help us take good care of their property & "furried friends" as K likes to call them. The house is very comfortable, especially the great room/kitchen, with sit-at island, large L-shaped couch & wood fireplace. K&R made sure we were well stocked with firewood! The 3 horses are a delight. I'm a horsewoman so enjoyed grooming & hanging around the paddocks, but for those that aren't, rest assured they are easy care & well mannered. Apex ski resort is 50min & never crowded
