Great Log Home
We stayed after Christmas and really enjoyed the home. There was enough space for us with an area in front of the fire place for people to hang out as well as a separate TV room where you can shut the door to keep TV noise in. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable and we loved the heated floors in parts of the home. Jack the owner loves his home and wants you to enjoy your stay. He will check in with you and make sure that you have everything you need.
Andrea and her family are lovely guests. It was a delight to share my home with them
Impressive Layout! Great amount of detail.
Great place for a group to enjoy, spacious layout with all kinds of detail.
Large, modern kitchen with a good appliances.
The bedrooms are set up great for a variety of guests, comfortable beds.
The owner has missed nothing, and great with details on everything there.
Had a great time there! Highly recommend!!
Many thanks for your kind remarks. It was a pleasure to have you at Upper Pines Lodge
Perfect Snowy Getaway!
The home is beautiful and perfect for a cozy get away. The owner was very tentative and provided clear instructions to ensure we didn't have any issues or questions during our stay. Would definitely recommend to others!
I think that my guest, who was a joy to work with, may have meant to say that the owner was "attentive," rather than saying that the owner was "tentative." I hope that the clarification is helpful.
Wonderful place, great location. Well maintained. Definitely recommend!
Had just a wonderful time here. It's a great place with fine attention to detail. The location is very convenient.
The owner is quick to respond and extremely well organized.
The beds are foam and I thought very comfortable.
The kitchen is modern with nice appliances.
Wifi moves well at 15-20Mbps. We had 10 adults and had no Internet problems.
We had a great stay and I hope to come back again.
Incredible space! Not a thought missed!
You can't even go to a luxury hotel and have them think of as many things for you as Jack has done for guests at this getaway. Details are key for a successful getaway and there are none that have been missed. EVERYTHING is documented. I did not have to call Jack a single time to figure out anything in the house. You literally can go to this place and have everything you need to enjoy yourself. Obviously bring food and stuff, let's be realistic. But the views, the new deck, the radiant heating, the steam shower, the incredibly comfortable beds... I could go on and on.
A family or a bunch of friends, regardless of your crew, will definitely be able to enjoy themselves here however you want. You will still be wowing things in this place the day you leave. Absolutely worth it. Even if minimal time will be spent in the place, it's worth having the peace of mind that someone else already did all the thinking for your lodging needs.
Beautiful Fall Weekend!
We booked the lodge for 3 nights for Homecoming Weekend at Norwich University. The location was perfect - very close to the class parties and dinner. Also an easy, beautiful drive over "the Gap" to campus. Of course, 80 degree weather helped! The Lodge is beautiful - situated perfectly to maximize the views. The 5 bedrooms were all comfortable and 3 bathrooms were exactly what 6 women needed! The furnishings are warm and inviting and it was very easy to feel "at home". Morning coffee on the deck with breathtaking views - heaven! Jack's attention to detail is amazing - he even called the first day to make sure everything was ok. We certainly will be back!
