Nice and very clean rental
We rented this house with 17 people. The price was competitive compared to similar properties. The owner Vasili and the caretaker Dick were both very nice and helpful. We especially appreciated how Dick set up firewood outside for us ahead of time. Even though the property has other cabins, the house is located in a very private spot.
The house was well-equipped with utensil, pots, etc. Everything inside was very clean. Note that the sleeping spots didn't seem to correspond exactly to the configuration on homeaway --- while there are 17 spots, two of the spots seemed to correspond to a pull-out couch and the rooms were laid out somewhat differently. This was no trouble for us, but I mention it in case it matters to the reader.
In terms of activities, half of us hiked and the other half climbed. In terms of hiking, there are lots of routes close-by and I think this is a really good spot for those kind of activities. However, unless you are equipped with a full set of trad gear and the requisite knowledge, to get to good climbing spots requires at least an hour trip.
Finally, the immediate locale around the cabin is just a wooded area, and is not scenic. This is not necessarily a negative, as the house is not advertised as such, but I just mention that in case someone is really looking for that kind of location.
All in all, a very positive experience, and if you have a large group, this place is well worth a look.
