Everything we expected....and so much more!!
As an Australian family who have never experienced a white Christmas we decided North America was a good option primarily on value for money reasons. I was made aware of VRBO through a friend who recently visited Hawaii. Our rental check-list included, large, comfortable, warm, fireplace, in the snow, close to decent skiing and available over Christmas. Hey, this place looks alright!!
I'm always a little apprehensive booking anything 'site unseen' but we did it! Tim was really helpful through the process and we were soon counting down the days until our white Xmas.
We arrived on Dec 17, from the moment we opened the door we we mesmerized. The aroma of the cedar, the warmth of the heating that was already on, the Christmas tree and decorations were all confirmation we had selected well. The girls (14&17) were relieved they saw they had their own bathroom (especially after two weeks of Hotels) and over the moon when they realized the house had WiFi. First impressions are important and Tim is obviously a host who knows this. He took the extra steps to make our stay a memorable experience. Our entire stay was perfect, even the snow! (I think Tim must have contacts in that department too)
Tomorrow we leave our new favorite holiday destination with sadness, we are however comforted by the great memories of our stay at Spruce Lake and the thought a new group will share the experience.
