We rented another cottage/cabin through Home Away previously and arrived after dark and after traveling by plane (where we could take the bare minimum with us). The previous rental was NOT completely as advertised and we arrived at night to find no toilet paper, no hand soap, etc. and a cottage that was not well maintained. Because of that experience, we almost chose to stay in the nearest hotel. However, this rental was totally different! We arrived after 3 days of driving from Oklahoma. Unlike the other property, this cottage was exactly as advertised and everything was ready and waiting for us! It was quiet, comfortable, convenient, beautiful. We enjoyed the snow and peace & quiet but were still close to family for visiting. We knew there was a TV/DVD player but no cable or satellite so we brought some DVD's and we were happy. Having high speed internet was definitely a plus as there were times we needed to be online for a bit of work. It was nice to have a bathroom both upstairs and downstairs (so we weren't running downstairs in the middle of the night) and to have a cottage that was completely ready for us. We're looking forward to our next stay!!
