I went to the house with a girlfriend primarily to relax and this house and location are great for that! We enjoyed the views not only from the patio, but just from the house! We also enjoyed, of course, the patio, the hot tub, AND sitting on the couch catching up on conversation (and some TV programs and movies). The house is nice (very nicely decorated) but also has a nice rustic feel and is very comfortable. We also enjoyed some hiking in the area, which was easy to do. I will definitely return - maybe for skiing next time.
