We had 8 adults & 7 children under 8 - it was a perfect layout. The kitchen table was awesome for meals for everyone, I would suggest that there should be at least one empty cabinet to put all our food in, the counter was crowded! We cooked all our meals in and used the grill every night. The adults loved the hot tub after evenings around the outside fireplace when the kids were all tucked in. Plenty of yard for exploring for the kids and the field across was perfect for games of softball and soccer. The dead end street made it safe for the little ones to ride their bikes. Terrific mud room that held all our coolers and sports equipment and SHOES! The refrigerator had a small inside leak that was a bit annoying on food on first shelf. I trust by now that has been repaired. Truly a great place to make memories!
