My husband and I had the pleasure of joining five other couples to spend four glorious day in the mountains in this fabulous house. It could not be a more perfect venue for great friends to spend time together and enjoy the area's hiking, shopping and restaurants. Each couple had privacy in their room with en suite bath, and the gathering rooms were perfect for conversation and fun. We brought all of our own meals knowing that dinner each night with 12 people would be challenging, and we found the kitchen to be a chef's dream! Anyway, after a day of hiking and lunch in a charming cafe, who would want to leave this beautiful place? Few luxury hotels could offer more scrumptious accommodations- from the linens and well-appointed bathrooms to the cozy fireplaces, pool and ping pong tables, and incredible views enjoyed from rocking chairs on the porch. The house could be a designer show house. Every detail in design and decor was thoughtfully planned, yet it had the warmth and welcoming feel of a good friend's home. The owner offered it up as such, even making spices and condiments in the kitchen available to us if needed. We loved this place, and I hope to return one day. I've heard it said that walking into a well appointed and beautiful home is like receiving a warm hug. This house was that and more. Thank you for sharing it with us and our dear friends!
