I have booked on HomeAway numerous times and have many reference points when looking for a good stay. TIHSREED is an EXCELLENT stay. Don was personalble LONG before we left for our retreat. He made a few well timed contacts via phone and emails always knowing and aware of our preparations and anticipations. He has a gift and 6th sense of what a traveler needs to know. From the initial "Hello" when booking to the final "goodbye" in the driveway, Toni and Don are all about making the stay all that you imagine it should be. Greeted with a warm fire, huge smiles and a heartfelt tour. We were a crew of 15 guests. We could have easily fit 10 more. The game room downstairs made the 9 kids feel like they had their own retreat and the adults had plenty of room and seclusion to let their hair down and enjoy each other's company on the other 2 levels. Though our friendships are amazing, and those were what we brought, it was enhanced by hosts and an atmosphere of sheer perfection. The price gives you FAR MORE than any place I have rented. This is a haven. Kitchen is fully stocked with what you will need. Our crew was plagued by some things that could have deterred from our experience, let's just say we were accident prone. But our hosts were MORE than gracious! Yes, we had trouble with 2 wheel drive on the way up the drive. Don made it into just another day, by putting us at ease with his "AH, NO problem... We can handle this..." attitude. And HE DID. Firewood stacked and restocked thru the week. They seemed to disappear once we were settled in with our TON of luggage, and only reappear like a mystical gift when we needed something, questioned a travel destination or needed to laugh around the firepit. What a beaufitul place with a spirit of its own. Soulful retreat. So much room in and out of the home. Snowmen, sledding, hiking, s'more's, family dinners, relaxing hot tub, friendly Karaoke. You name it, it can accomodate. Pack your bag (not as many as we did) and enjoy the fully stocked home! Make your own memories, because this place is what inspires you to reach for the stars or relax amongst them. Thank you Don and Toni for sharing this wonderful, beautiful slice of heaven! 6 bedrooms, kitchen, 2 living areas, etc do not do this place justice. Check out the FB page for our pics that we will soon be sharing. This is a place we are blessed to have found and look forward to MANY return visits and a new friendship with TISHREED!
