My husband and I were celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary and wanted to relax and enjoy some quiet time. The location was extremely quiet and spacious, even though it was relatively close to other houses. I am used to the noise and crowds of Brooklyn, NY so this was perfect. The house was clean and fairly modern. It has a fully-equipped kitchen with pots, pans, utensils, etc. so we only needed to bring food. There were a few food items in the fridge and the cabinets but we didn't use them as we already brought our own. The front of the house had beautiful floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking the driveway. I would have appreciated more/thicker curtains as the living room curtains were sheer and you could see right into the house, and the window beside the front door had no curtain/shade at all. It's not like anyone was wandering around looking into the windows from outside, but being a New Yorker I'm not used to that kind of "openness." The beds were not that comfortable, and my husband is a very large man so he felt like he was going to break the bed if he moved around too much. The bathroom was small but had a deep Jacuzzi tub (the bubble bath I took was nice but I couldn't figure out how to use the Jacuzzi part but it wasn't that important). There is a huge flat-screen tv in the living room and a smaller one in one of the bedrooms. There was a wood-burning fireplace in the living room and a charcoal grille outside, but we didn't use them. The house was not too far away from the lake, which was beautiful. It was only about a 45 minute drive to Camelback Mountain, where we did some sightseeing and hiking. There wasn't too much that we wanted to do around the area, but we didn't come for the activities. We just wanted to enjoy the mountain air, the view and being able to see actual stars at night. There were not too many places to eat, and the reviews on them weren't that great, but we had breakfast at Jubilee's on 940 and Perkins - also on 940. The food was average, but we mostly just ate the food we brought with us. Overall, it was just what we were looking for and we got the relaxation and quiet time we wanted. The owner was great about keeping in contact through email and answered any questions I had.
