My husband and I stayed in this house on Valentine day in 2014 and I left my review at that time. This time we decided to spend a few days on Christmas week there. And we both are glad that we made this choice. It was not as cold this time as it was in February so we originally thought we would spend more time outside. But there was not much snow this time so we did not even bother to go for skiing or snow tubing. But the “inside” was so relaxing and cozy that we didn’t even go out for dinners and we had been eating the food that we brought along with us. What I like most about escape like this – for several days we lived ON OUR own relaxing schedule: sleeping late, watching TV and DVD movies we brought in with us in front of the fireplace, taking strolls along the lake and in the forest nearby, DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING!! And it is so quiet!! After our noisy life in New York the quietness is almost deafing . And occasionally we had a quest on the porch outside - a squirrel that posed for pictures. I would highly recommend this place for people looking for nice, relaxing and calm getaway.
