The home is on the high side of the upper loop road in the Tree Haus neighborhood with vacant undeveloped lots on both sides and the Emerald Mountain Wilderness area behind. Tree Haus has a collection of attractive/unique designed single family homes ranging in size from the original 2500+/- SF homes to newer and expanded 5000+SF homes. The area is fairly hilly with winding roads and under ground utilities. Most homes are permanent residences with only a few of the 2nd homes available (when not used by owner/family/friends) for weekly/monthly rental.
The location provides direct access to Emerald Mountain for snowshoeing in winter and hiking in summer. Some of the local elk herd passes below our large deck on their way to/from the river.
We have attempted to create a home that is comfortable for personal use and one that feels like staying at a friends vacation 'cabin' for renters. The house/furniture is PET/KID FRIENDLY. The new kitchen is very well equipped for enjoyable food prep with plenty of space for socializing. We have an 'open pantry' stocked with basics++ to minimize the need for trips to the market. The new master bath with jetted soaking tub, separate multi-head shower and heated stone floor is designed to comfort tired bodies after a hard day on the slopes or trails.
We have priced a little under the market in an effort to attract & retain multi-week repeat renters. Further we encourage owner/renter/local property manager communications in an effort to respond promptly to renter requests and to exceed expectations, thereby further increasing the number of repeat renters that treat the house as if it were their own.
