First of all, CLEAN. Because of a child with severe dust allergies, this was a major concern. He never once sneezed. The owners are very friendly and helpful, but know how to keep their distance, which is real nice. We gathered here as a family, some of whom hadn't seen each other in three years, and it was the perfect family place. The pool table is gorgeous and made a perfect hub for stories, conversation, and competition. No WIFI, after the initial shock it was great putting down those horrid life-controlling devices.
The kitchen allowed us to cook whatever we wanted and the outdoor grill was a bonus (though my brother melted a spatula on it.
The furniture and space was perfect: giant bedrooms, soft beds, couches, and kitchen table...
The lake and surrounding mountains (awesome hiking trails right behind the house) let nature speak for herself. We're thinking of a return summer-time trip.
Having a great bar within walking distance didn't hurt at all.
Overall, a great place, great owners, and a great time.
