I'd start by saying if HomeAway allowed 6 stars...I'd give it here.
We have rented many places over the years, and we try very hard to find places where our family can spend an entire week together and get away from the craziness. This is the family winner by far. The accommodations were fabulous...lots of room for everyone to stretch out in quiet if they wanted, or assemble en mass to enjoy cook outs on the grill or twice over campfires at lakeside.
My wife, the gourmet cook found just about every utensil, appliance or convenience she needed to wow the kids and grandkids at meal time. The old log portion of the home is just so cozy, and everyone loved spending time there doing puzzles, playing cards, or just reading. The best part of our week was; even though there are two TV's of ample size and HD quality...we only saw about 1/2 hour of TV the entire time...we just didn't need it with all the things to do.
The owner is quite a distance, so the manager provided great help when we needed it. Heinz is a super nice guy. Amy had the house clean and ready for us all, so we tried to reward her by cleaning the house better than we found it. Thanks Amy.
If you are looking for a place to rekindle family ties, get away from the lights, traffic, noise and stress, I highly recommend Spruce Lake Farm. NOW is a great time to go...the leaves are just turing colors and will be spectacular in about two weeks.
Thanks Adam for a wonderful and memorable week.
