We wanted a family vacation house where we could relax, visit, eat good food, and unwind. This was a great place for us. The layout of the place (open from one end to the other with the kitchen in the center, seating area on one end and dining on the other) was ideal. Being in the kitchen never felt isolated as it is truly the center of the house. The kitchen also has a large pantry that was great for storing food we had brought along for our stay. We could put things "away" and feel like the space was clean and uncluttered. Bedrooms, bathrooms and closets are large and accommodating. The large windows in the main house area allow for expansive views. We watched a flock of wild turkeys coming out of the woods while eating dinner and saw a bald eagle flying over one afternoon. Each morning our grandchildren would stand at the windows and look across the valley to see the cows in the meadows. We had rain during one of our days there, and while we had hoped for sunshine, the rain and fog brought a whole new dimension to the place. We felt like we had been snugged in by a warm turtleneck shirt, and watching the clouds rise and fall on the mountains was magical...did I mention that we were also there during full moon? Ahhhhhh! We created lots of great memories.
