Lovely, rustic, with lots of space for our small family gathering. We used the main bedrooms upstairs and down, all were comfortable to sleep in, they seemed to mould to your requirements. The day we arrived, aircon was in full swing which was appreciated. The kitchen was stocked well. A family of cooks, we found all we needed. There was activities galore available, games, fuse ball, large jenga and so much more. The place would be ideal with young teenagers. We tried to go swimming at the local lake, which looked lovely, buy only open weekends outside school summer holidays. The bathrooms/toilets are all downstairs which wasn't an issue for us. I would be cautious with under 5s upstairs. You would need to keep a close eye on climbers as the stair corridor only had a knee height barrier. Hot water never ran out. The shower could do with upgrading as it's a fixed head and lacks pressure. It did the job, I've had to manage with worse. We would gladly stay again.

Great house and outdoor area. It is on a main road so the traffic is loud at times but overall a wonderful place. Multiple fire pits to choose from and plenty of outdoor seating and games.

Perfect fit for three families totaling ten. It rained some so the foosball table got a lot of use. The kids loved it! Jeff was an excellent host, friendly and helpful. Staying again in August with more family!😎

We enjoyed the 2 week stay with Jeff. We spent a lot of our time with our friends at the lake. The location was close to the grocery stores and to General Dollar. We had our granddaughter visit for one night and 3 great grandchildren. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep. The kids enjoyed the outdoors. There was lots of space to run and play. We had a fire outdoors and of course the kids liked the smores. Ron enjoyed seeing the animals that Jeff hunted and stuffed over the years.

Thanks for another great stay, Jeff. The grandkids loved the backyard space with lots of toys/games provided. And we certainly had enough room for everyone!

Large house with lots of sleeping arrangements. This was an old farmhouse that has been updated with some original character still intact. There were lots of games available for group fun inside and outside.

First I want to say Thank you to Jeff! He was very nice! He welcomed us to his Airbnb during the check-in and gave us an overview of activities we could do in nearby places. His Airbnb was very clean and cozy with lots of board games to choose from. We created a bonfire at night in his back yard and had a blast telling stories. I would recommend very much!

We were in town for work. Jeffs house was perfect for the three of us. The Keurig was a nice touch so that we could have some coffee to start our morning.

Many thanks to Jeff for being so accommodating and helping to support our changing plans. We have stayed here more than once and it is so convenient, well stocked and definitely a comfortable place to call home even for a few days. The great thing about this property is it has the space for a big gathering and Jeff supplies everything you could ever need in an Airbnb. It is always great to visit Rushford and stay in this fabulous home.

The property was exactly as listed and matched the description and photos. It was clean and well-maintained, including the pool in the backyard. The instructions were clear, and the host was very responsive. The best part was its proximity to Wynwood, which was only 5 minutes away. This was a great place for a getaway with friends! I would definitely recommend it.
