The house was exactly as advertised. The home is beautiful, large, and open. Lots of windows/natural light. Sleeps 8 +. The kitchen is well stocked. Enjoyed the "game room" on the 3rd floor. Used the doggie bath but better for a larger dog. The backyard is beautifully landscaped.
The rental company (Stu and Diana) were extremely responsive and helpful. Purchased a crock pot before we came which we used extensively! Also brought over a table for the back yard.
Before we arrived, TV was added. I cannot imagine renting a house (especially for a full week) without TV. We were surprised to learn that this feature had just been added. Need step-by-step directions on how to operate the TV. Took two days plus individual help from rental company to get TV to work. Once we got it working - beautiful TV and excellent reception. Includes a DVD player so can watch movies as well.
Lots of great hiking trails minutes from the house plus a creek/river.
Suggestions: (1) add blinds to all windows (include top windows) in living room. Sun in morning was blinding. (2) add fan to master bathroom (home gets very warm quickly). (3) rearrange kitchen supplies to leave at least one cupboard to store groceries (had to leave groceries out on side table).
OVERALL - we LOVED our time at this beautiful and comfortable house. We would go back in a heartbeat.
