Beautiful accommodations. Comfortable furnishings. Great appliances. Excellent WiFi. Highly recommend.
The Binker Barn design fitted my daughter's FFA officers retreat very well. Well equipped and close to everything.
The Kraus house was exactly the right size for our family. And it is very well stocked with everything we needed. We’ll be returning again next year!’
Online pictures do not do the Kraus House justice. Very well kept, well stocked, and larger than most. Kitchen was stocked with every accessory and spices galore. Having 2 dining tables made it great for young and old to enjoy their own area, while still be close. Parking on the side street is convenient and made it safe for kids and belongings. Came stocked with firewood, and multiple t.v's(thought we kept them off). Would recommend to any group of multiple family travelers.
We loved the house! it had everything two families needed. Lots of seating areas, very well equipped kitchen and wonderful location. Sea Ranch is a place we will definitely return to.
We loved it. Spacious nice deck. Kitchen was great for cooking large meals. Looks better than the photos. If you're into soundproofing this is not your spot.
Had our whole family there for the weekend. House well stocked. Beautiful setting. Great Hot Tub. Wild Turkeys and Doe with her two fawns came to visit!. Kitchen amazingly loaded with all you would need to feed a crew. Everyone wants to come back next year!!!!! Three generations had a ball. Thank you for sharing your house with our family.
Plenty of room for 9 of us. We all cooked in the kitchen, read books in the window seats, watched basketball on the big screen tv and relaxed in the hot tub. Nice quiet neighborhood. Beautiful surroundings. Thanks so much for the use of your very comfortable place.
Finding a house for ten people is hard but this house with five bedrooms was perfect. The large living area allowed us all to relax in the same room and the central kitchen was nice as we could put the kids at the kitchen table and the adults at the dining table. The architecture of the house is amazing , all wood with huge beams bolted together at different angles. I would give it five stars but it needs some T.L.C. We also liked the pools and saunas at the rec. centers.
Large house good for family gatherings
Make sure to bring toilet paper and dishwasher soap
Beautiful house in top condition. Was just perfect for two families
We had a very relaxing stay, accommodations were exactly as described. The weather was beautiful, we enjoyed the hot tub and access to a fully equipped kitchen. Would stay here again anytime. Thanks!
I would highly recommend this house and location to anyone! I came with my parents, husband, and 2 daughters, and we had a great time.
Very spacious property great for a big group
Here are the problems that need to be fixed:
Kitchen sink leaks into the floor
Roof leak in family room over the electronic equipment
TV speakers won't work--- only small speaker on TV itself
Fireplace smokes: chimney needs to be cleaned
Leak upstairs in one of the bedrooms over the window.
Internet didn't work reliably
We appreciate the feedback and have been working with the homeowner to resolve the various issues at the home. The kitchen sink has been fixed. The house siding and windows are in the processing of being replaced on the side that was leaking. The chimney is now on a service schedule to be swept regularly. By the end of May we plan on having a new, more reliable, fiber optic internet service installed and the sound system will be addressed as well. We hope that you will come stay again and enjoy the improvements to the home!
Decent house for the price and the amount of people it slept. Sunsets from the hot tub were spectacular.
The good thing about this place is that you don't have to leave. I brought my family and we had a great time. The house is well appointed and comfortable. The neighborhood is beautiful and quiet. Overall positive experience.
Stayed at the Kraus House many times, it's starting to age a little, but still OK for a few couples.
Perfect for our group of friends.
Quiet location with easy driving access to everything.
This is a great place to stay as long as you don't mind being on the east side of the highway. The house is very comfortable and well equipped. One funny thing about the layout is that there is only one bathroom for all 4 upstairs bedrooms, while the downstairs bedroom has one all to itself. Bit in general the house is very nice and I would stay there again if going with a large group.
Perfect place for a group that needs 4 or 5 bedrooms. Had everything we needed. House was arranged expertly.
Great place. We had a great getaway. We would like to come back one day.
