We originally had another house rented but the owner had canceled due to complications with the house. I am glad he did because we were able to rent this house instead which was cheaper and was able to fit more people. We arrived at the house excited and it exceeded our expectations. Here are some of the highlights that are still fresh in my mind.
+ There is a huge field once you cross the little wooden bridge. It is perfect for tossing a Frisbee or playing a soccer game.
+ The fire pit is large with stones all around it. Owner was nice enough to have dry twigs and chopped wood ready. We had a really great time here at night, set up about 12 chairs all around the fire and had smores. Can't beat that.
+ The night sky up there was crystal clear. Looking up at the stars with binoculars was great. We spotted several satellites and meteors.
+ The back deck is perfect for grilling and the 2 long tables were enough for our large group.
+ The owner has a Netflix subscription with a Roku box. Hundreds of movies selections, great for late night movies.
+ WiFi also available at the house which was very handy for those who had to stay in touch with the busy world.
+ The Sauna was a hit with our group. It was used at least once by each person in our group.
+ There is a nearby mountain trail that leads to the top of Windham mountain. This was a great experience for me. The view from the top is breathtaking but the entire hike will take you at least 4 1/2 hours.
- When we arrived, the Hammock that can be seen in the picture was not attached. Not sure if it was broken or not.
- The nearby garbage dump charges $10 for 5 bags of household trash. If you have cans, bottles, and plastics, I suggest you keep them separate from the beginning because you will have to dig through and separate them at the dump.
- The canoe was unavailable to us as it appeared to be broken.
Overall, I would give the house a 10 and would recommend it to anyone.
