Kristine is an excellent and welcoming homeowner and communicator. After our 8 plus hours drive to her home she welcomed us with a delicious homecooked meal while young and enthusiastic Gustav and more mature, laid back Tilly checked us out as well as my pup, Fin; Kristine did not at all mind my bringing him with us.
During our two-week stay we took advantage of Kristine's suggestions of places to walk the pooches and interesting places to explore in and around MA. Wheaton college was a favorite place to walk as well as two nearby parks/nature reserves.
Kristine's large, comfortable home is a book lover's dream and her lush and abundant garden an oasis. I particularly enjoyed the Dhalias in bloom which I was able to cut and bring indoors to grace the table. Her small vegetable garden as well as raspberry bushes also provided us with some treats to add to our meals.
My travel partner and I highly recommend Kristine. Just be aware that Tilly, the senior Doxy lady, is smart and beguiling and will try her best to get you to give her extra treats as well as snuggle into bed with you (which we didn't allow but she sleeps just as well in her basket or on the sofa). Gustav, the younger likes lots of playtime and needs a strong hold on the leash to keep him from chasing chipmunks and squirrels; both love to ride in the car with the window open.
We had a great time and think you would too.
