Amazing view, VERY private
The other reviews are correct. This is a great house. Looks just like the pictures, Very well maintained and has an amazing view from the deck. Everything was in working order. Kitchen well equipped-- pasta pots and strainer, blender, coffee pot (no filters needed), pots, pans, utensils, cork screw, can opener, wine and champaign glasses. Only two things to note: First, other supplies were lacking. There was no bar soap, only miniature shampoo. Also, no paper towels, plastic wrap or foil. Also, there was not enough toilet paper for the weekend. This is not a big issue if you plan ahead, but that comes to my second point: The house is very secluded and hard to get to. We had planned to go into town for lunch both days but after the first time down the mountain decided to stay at the house the second day. As described, it's a haul to get to the house from the road. Better to just get there and plan to stay, but we had to go into town for the necessities that were missing. Also, there is no wifi and cell service is spotty. Verizon connected sometimes, ATT never connected. Also, I would not recommend heading up without an 4wd. We went up in Summer so snow was not a problem but even a mini SUV was over the weight limit for one of the bridges so we had to ford the stream (this is anticipated and there is a place for cars to cross, but you are still going through a stream). With all of the rain, was a bit concerning but made it fine. Would not have liked to try it in a 2wd. Would also have been nice to have a list of some nearby hiking trails. There were a copul eof paths next to the house but they may have been deer trails and since we didn't know where they ended up, we turned around before long. Please note the overall rating above. These points did not detract from our enjoyment and we plan to stay here again when we come back. Just thought others should know and plan ahead.
Owner's Response: Chris, thank you for the 5 star rating and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay and plan on a return visit in the future. Re supplies in the home, we will address that issue promptly with the cleaning service. You are right in that this location offers supreme privacy and gorgeous views at the end of a 2 mile gravel road. It is probable that the housekeeper arrived without the necessary supplies and had no time to go back to get them, and we are sorry if this inconvenienced you in any way. As far as the bridges over the 2 creeks, I routinely drive my large SUV (over 6000 lbs) over both bridges, and see others driving larger vehicles so will have to do some research as to what is posted on the bridges as far as weight limit. Your mini SUV should have been fine. Most of the people who have homes in this area have larger SUVs or trucks. As far as hiking trails, there are no dedicated trails but a pretty extensive unpaved road system that you are welcome to walk on and I am sure there are many deer trails throughout.
