Neat Place

  • Submitted: May 24, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
All went well and the house is as described. A fun place with many antiques to enjoy. There's a small grocery store about a mile up the road for provisions. A great place to relax. Bring a book or two or your DVD's, no broadcast TV, which is a good thing! The owner/manager were responsive and flexible.

Scenery all around

I love to take picture. So when I arrived, I had to take pictures of the outside, atound the back to get all the mountains below. Then wehn I entered, well, I just took pictures like a paparazee!(not sure if spelled right). Once I calmed down, we enjoyed our time here. Lots of family games. Movie theatre for the whole family and I enjoyed doing my morning workout in the gym, but I spent most of my time taking pictures. Just wonderful!

The drive up was smooth. Could not follow GPS exactly, but once we arrived, we had to stand at the entry of the house(foyer) and andmire all the woodwork. The decor fit the house, elegant yet very comfortable. Plenty of room. Very clean.
