Just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

We spent 4 nights in this wonderful home on the Sandy river. Skiing was the goal, but it was too warm and wet, so we ended up spending most of our time at the house. David, the owner, is a great guy; really warm and welcoming. He was helpful, flexible, and a pleasure to deal with. The house itself was clean, well-maintained, and larger than it looked on the site. I imagine it would be great for a family or larger group. The kitchen was well-appointed, there was plenty of firewood, and my dog even found a neighbor dog to play with. All in all, a great place to stay. We will go back.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay at David’s house for the second time. The house is great all around, very clean, it’s spacious and relaxing. This cozy home is located in a quiet and peaceful neighborhood. The kitchen is great for a home cooked meal. We were happy for the easy access to many hiking trails. David is a marvelous attentive host, going out of his way to make you feel at home. We will definitely be back!

Cozy cabin in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four days in October and absolutely loved it. The cabin is cozy and well-equipped. It's a short walk down to the river along a private path, and you can also take strolls along the quiet residential street. There are large stacks of wood supplied for the fireplace. My kids loved the huge collection of board games. The kitchen is spacious and well-equipped with kitchen tools (though make sure to bring things like oil and vinegar, since there is only salt and a collection of spices in the cabinets). We'll be back! Thank you for letting us stay in your lovely home.

The house was very clean and well kept. Kitchen had everything you needed to prepare a meal for eating in. It was comfortable and cozy. The street is quiet, and the yard was a relaxing place to be. The owner David was very helpful, and gave great recommendations.

About David Comerford

Hi, I have owned a vacation home for the past 30 years. I enjoy having my son and our friends share our lovely home with us. We are outdoor enthusiasts. We love to ski, raft, hike, swim etc.. Friends love to join us at the sandy river ski house for fun, relaxation, sitting around the fire and in the kitchen making yummy meals.
