Excellent Week Stay at the House

We had such a great time relaxing for the week We were so pleasantly surprised in the cleanliness of the house. It was like "home" from the minute we arrived. The kitchen had plenty of dinnerware, and supplies to get us started. We enjoyed the views of the mountains every day when we arose and definitely in the evening for the sunsets. The pictures here represent the cabin and surroundings so well. It is very open inside and nice light coming through the windows.
We had fun with the table tennis there and one day decided to have tournaments. That sure brought back memories!
We weren't able to use the fireplace due to the wrong time of the season, but sure did look inviting. The bedrooms and beds were very comfortable and noise from someone staying up later did not travel throughout the house.
We put out the corn that was available to draw the deer, etc, but we saw wild turkeys (about 10 or so) instead. It was a sight to see them in the back yard.
The brochures were very helpful in looking over to what we wanted to do for the week besides being lazy and relaxing. I would highly recommend the Courntryside BBQ in Marion. We went there one of the first nights for pulled pork and then decided to go back for the ribs another night. It is only about 20 minutes away and was the best ribs with so much meat. Make sure you go there on Tuesday, Friday, or Saturday for the ribs. If you call 3 hours ahead, they will make them for you on the other days.
I can't say enough about the owner being very communicative and pleasant to work with. Everything that we read in the description and his helpfulness in the emails prior to arriving was great.
We had 3 couples and we stayed on the top floor and the water pressure and getting hot water was fine. It was nice to have a bedroom on each floor and one bedroom on the main floor for people that can't take steps very much.
I would highly recomment this house to couples or families. With the games there, table tennis and just the beauty of the mountains, there was enough to do or just to relax.

Owner's Response: The Grandview Lodge was built to either enjoy the beauty of the mountains, a time to relax and have fun with the family or play games in the gameroom and check out some of the wild life there. I leave a bag of deer corn so you can get a picture of "bambi" but sometimes the wild turkeys show and they are a funny group to see.
