Quiet Romantic Getaway

  • 4 of 5

This beautiful house was perfect for our weekend getaway. I loved being disconnected while there. The drive up to the house was so pretty too. My husband got a chance to explore the property and found a beautiful clearing close to the top of the mountain while I was dropping the kids off with my parents. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to check it out with him. The bed off of the living room was extremely comfortable, we didn't try the others, so I don't know how they slept. The washer & dryer were great & very efficient. There are a few things I would improve or change however.... 1- Better maintenance of the property, the front porch was overgrown and we were unable to use some of the seating due to that. 2- Turn up the setting on the hot water heater. We had to turn the hot water all the way on for the water to be warm enough for us. 3- The plumbing in the bathroom is off, cold is hot, hot is cold....that gave us a rude awakening the first morning we were there. 4- This is not something I would necessarily change, but something to consider....updating the TV's to ones that are compatible with having a laptop plugged in to it. We didn't get a chance to watch TV other than the first night we were there. But, it would have been nice to hook our laptop up and access Netflix or Hulu.

John & Lisa were wonderful & very hospitable. They did a great job putting up with the million questions I had. lol We will definitely be back.

A Wonderful Stay - 10/13 to 10/16/2016

  • 5 of 5

What a nice, comfortable welcoming cabin in the woods! Although my stay at Peace was not for a vacation, this home certainly provided me with the perfect place to accomplish my task at hand! I was in Burnsville to celebrate my daughter's wedding and I was making the wedding cake. Peace provided me with the room, peaceful surroundings, and calm that I needed to bake a beautiful cake for the wedding, Working for many hours in the kitchen, I can truly say without a doubt, that this vacation home was immaculately clean and well stocked. The other rooms were also so well cared for. In speaking with the owner, several days prior to our arrival, she said her rule was to always prepare Peace to the same standards that she cared for her own home. And she does! Thank you for the short, but very nice stay at Peace and for helping make my daughter's wedding day a beautiful success.

A comfortable, cozy home.

  • 5 of 5

Tucked away in the mountains, this home provided a peaceful and tranquil setting to unwind and relax. The home was the perfect size to accommodate our family of five. The home was well kept and stocked with amenities which reduced the stress of vacationing away from the comforts of one's home. The bedrooms were well maintained and provided extra linens and bedding for added comfort. A well equipped kitchen made it convenient to prepare family dinners after a day of exploring the mountain trails and waterfalls in the surrounding areas. The nearest town was a short distance away (about 6 miles) and offered easy access to restaurants, small shops and a large supermarket to meet our needs. The owner provided detailed directions to the property and several recommendations about the attractions nearby to explore. Overall, this home was a comfortable place to stay during our vacation and it met many of our expectations.

Very peaceful setting

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the quiet & private setting this home offered. Although there are no direct mountain views from the property, it was very peaceful to sip morning coffee on the front porch & listen to the birds sing. Beautiful natural setting.

'Tranquility Base'

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely loved the property and the area. Lisa was a wonderful source of local information and so sweet! The property was the tranquility we were looking for yet close enough to many day-trip locales. So grateful to John & Lisa for sharing this little piece of serenity. We look forward to coming back!
