My stay at the Teacherage was one of the most peaceful, relaxing vacations ever. From Ron and Corinne?s warm welcome to visiting with local residents at the Saturday Farmer?s Market I felt very much at home. The best part though was touring the school with Ron and Corrine as my guide. Seeing the results of the careful restoration efforts was like taking a step back in time; I found myself not wanting to leave. While the area has much to offer, I preferred the peaceful ness at the school: browsing in the well-stocked library, relaxing in the beautiful surroundings of the well decorated home and appreciating the dedication that it has taken to preserve this wonderful place.

The three nights were really nice, anyone going up there especially from the Madison area should plan on at least three days. It was nice and quiet, and a plus to learn that satellite TV was available for viewing especially the movie channels, my parents and I watched a few movies when we got back at the end of the day. (I would add though a DVD player, I had brought with me some DVD’s thinking we could watch them.
The bedrooms were very nice, and both were very roomy and comfortable. My mom especially liked her room!
The only think that maybe you want to add in the future is televisions in those rooms. You could get away with just satellite service in those rooms and not worry about movie channels.
The living room area was nice, I liked the choice of chairs and also the ceiling fan. The breeze coming through the windows was an added plus, and as your brochure stated, it was nice listening to the rain drops with the windows open.
We did not get to spend time in the library, (though it was offered), if and when I go up there again, I will be sure to spend time there. That was a nice setup!
I would have liked to have seen the rest of the building, but I forgot to ask. So can’t give any feedback on that.
The kitchen was quaint, and well stocked with cooking equipment, when I first got there and found out there was no stove, I told myself, how are we going to cook for ourselves? But then as I was looking around, found all the equipment to cook just about anything and did use 3 different pieces. We made out without any problems, we only ate out once and that was at the Casino nearby. One of my parents favorite places to go. A BIG plus, that it was a scenic drive to get there, and I was surprised at how nice the casino actually was and very well maintained.
One other day, we headed out south and visited Virginia and took in a movie in the afternoon. That maybe another thing you could add to the list of things to do in the area. It was a nice drive there, and downtown Virginia is worth driving around.
One other thing that I would add to things to do is golfing, I was not aware that there was a golf course only about 5 miles away, I would have brought golf clubs with me and golf both the days I was there. There were other golf courses also advertised as we were driving around. I should have done my homework and looked around the area on the internet, bad me.
I know there are many lakes, not much of a fan of fishing myself, but might be useful to give some information on locations nearby that rent boats. I think I could have convinced my mom to have gone on a boat ride J
Overall we enjoyed the stay and certainly would recommend going back.
Dan thanks again!!
