Peaceful. We really enjoyed looking out at the stream and having BBQ meals on the deck. At night, you can see so many stars in the dark sky from the hot tub. We walked down to the water in the morning and my husband caught a small brook trout! We had lunch at the Mt Snow golf club after a fun day picking berries and swimming at the local lake. It's very convenient having the 4 bedrooms and 3 baths with many different sleeping options. The extra space in the den and loft is for great for kids too. We were very comfortable. Thanks for sharing! We will be back.
