SETH AND REBECCA BROCHE after their family's 100 person reunion, designed and built 3 large group places from 1989 just For Larger Group Gatherings and Events. People love them, and often comment they are the first place that's ever worked as well for their function.

The Owner purchased this house in 1989

We thought families, church groups, business school and club retreats needed a great place to gather together that was affordable, beautiful, big and designed for them. We had never been able to find a place like that for our family reunions. IT WORKS!

BEST FAMILY REUNION YET

  • 5 of 5
My family of 42 stayed at the Mountain Home recently in June 2010. The property was especially geared for a group of our size or larger. Mountain Home's floorplan is set up ideally with bedrooms in blocks, so we could put family groups in the appropriate areas (such as those with babies away from the pool table/hot tub areas)

The location of Mountain Home was convenient to hiking, biking, the lake and activities we took part in including the Renaissance Fair, Miniature Golf, shopping. And speaking of shopping it was located less than one mile from a grocery store, drug store and coffee house, so if we ever needed any item it was just a 15 minute roundtrip back to Mountain Home. Even though the property is located near shopping it is also on the route up towards Emerald Bay and had the woodsy feel.

The property was clean and organized. We used only the beds available in the bedrooms and did not need to use the futons in the common areas, but they were especially nice to relax in and maybe catch a wink or two while watching a movie. The website photos of Mountain Home were very accurate and we we only surprised by the large size of the rooms and property.

Mountain Home has all the amenities to provide entertainment at their location. We played volleyball, badminton, horseshoes, kayaking and pool as provided for as well as lots of use in the hot tub. The owners provided 2 firepits for us to use on the patio in the evenings as well as 2 BBQs. There was an abundance of seating available both inside and out.

We only encountered one issue with a broken washing machine which was handled almost immediately by the maintenance person Efrain. We can't speak more highly than of the service we received from Rebecca and Efrain. If there was anything that came up or we needed they were there in no time and or called back immediately.

We would definitely recommend this property for any other groups, whether you are a family or not. Everyone in the family agreed this was the best reunion yet and the best part was we got to spend a lot of time together and didn't have to leave the property to find things to do.

We look forward to returning in 2012.
