Beautiful location and would do it again

We celebrated my husbands 40th b-day with family and friends the weekend we stayed at this home. The house is decent size and nicely arranged with the majority of the bedrooms downstairs and the master being the only bedroom upstairs. The kids (and a mom) enjoyed the hottub. One complaint would be the floors...I understand the owner was in the home just before we arrived to install a new digital thermastat so I'm not sure if the dirty floors was a result of him being in the house or if the cleaners didn't do a great job. My daughters socks had to be bleached to get the dirt out and the carpets are mostly in the bedrooms but dirty & stained as well. Living in the mountains myself, I understand it kind of goes with the territory though. Not a big issue for us, but a 'nice to have' (clean carpets). The house is beautifully designed - the kitchen has a little nook off to the right and then a great room experience as it opens up into the dining area and living room. There are big floor to ceiling windows throughout that allow you to take in all the beauty that surrounds you. I could count the number of cars that traveled that road the entire weekend. It's very quiet. The houses were all adorned with up to 9' icicles hanging from their roof tops that only added to the wintry scenery. However, the iced over 3' snow shelf on the roof of this house was starting to creep off the back side of the house (where the hottub is and we stood to watch the kids sled on the hill below). Once we saw it, no one was allowed on the back deck. Too dangerous. Might be something to check before you go out on the deck if you visit this property during the snowy months.The kitchen is adequately stocked, except, if you're a coffee drinker, I suggest you bring your own 'big' coffee cup unless you prefer small cups of coffee. There was a cute, at least 4' tall snowman on the porch to greet us. Apparently the neighborhood wandering dog didn't care for the snowman though because he left a little surprise for us at the bottom of Mr. Snowman. House rules state to leave trash cans on the porch, but we didn't want to given the same wandering dog managed to drag the neighbors garbage down the street. Yikes!!
