Mountain Laurel Lodge was all we hoped for, but was so much more than we ever imagined. What an awesome place to stay for families, The kitchen has every large, high quality appliance for feeding families and everything cupboard, cabinet and outlet in labeled for easy use. This also includes the enormous washer and drier instructions that were so easy to follow. The manager provides lists of places to see, kid friendly places to see, local restaurants and ones that are open on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day, events in the area, plus directions to all of these places. The beds are very comfortable and the kids room was such a hit with books,stuffed animals, plus family games for all ages. The home is in a great location near large 24 hr. grocery stores, great shopping in all the towns nearby, hiking, fishing, or just sitting on the wrap around porch enjoying nature while grilling . The home was very clean, beautifully decorated and was a wonderful home for us for an awesome week. I would recommend this home over and over and over again. We have been here twice and plan on returning real soon....you will not be disappointed...and are available to you if you have any questions on the home. They REALLY do pamper you .
