Absolutely fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely wonderful for our family group of 15 ranging from teens to 80+. It was absolutely spotless, and outfitted with very comfortable furniture in great condition. Although there are other houses on the street, the trees are so dense and the houses set so far back that it is easy to imagine you are the only ones for miles around. Although we could have spread out (upstairs great room, downstairs living room, sunroom, pool table room), we all ended up congregating in the lovely upstairs living room, which had two distinct seating areas as well as a table which we used for doing 1000 piece puzzles. The kitchens had everything you could possibly need for feeding 15 people, and we really appreciated having two refrigerators and two washer/dryers. Tama was incredibly responsive to emails and texts. She and her husband met us when we arrived and showed us around.

Probably the biggest hit was the pool. I've never laid eyes on a cleaner, more inviting pool in my life, and I grew up in CA. It is a mineral pool, so no chlorine and it is perfectly crystal clear. It is quite large; we had seven people on inflatable tubes and rafts in it and there was still plenty of room to swim around. The pool is probably 4 ft for about the first 1/3 of the pool, and then it drops very steeply to about 8 ft; the drop off is extremely slippery and hard to walk back up, so parents of small kids, be aware.

Regadring the layout ... the wing of house closest to driveway has a front door into the pool table room, and a few steps up to the bunk room & one bathroom (on main level); other wing has two bedrooms (each with Q) & bathroom on main level, and two bedrooms (one with 2 doubles, other with Q) & bathroom on lower level. Middle section has a living area, kitchen, two dining tables, and bathroom with laundry on main level; another kitchen, living area, and laundry area are on lower level. To use the sunroom or the deck (main level), you have to walk through someone's bedroom. The loft is open to the main living area on both sides, so noise and heat made it less than ideal; also the loft has a skylight, so bring masking tape and garbage bags if morning sun is an issue.

Wifi was serviceable, but not great. T-mobile cell reception was terrible everywhere in the region, but Verizon had great cell service at the house.

We thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful house and would enthusiastically recommend it.

Exceeded expectations! Photos really don't do the property justice.

We really enjoyed the outdoor bar. Great place for cocktails, listening to music,hanging out while the guys grilled up dinner. Firepit was fun for kids making 'smores. Pool was perfect.

The house is really spacious and well stocked--kitchen, games, towels, everything. All the electronics worked too, direct tv so something for everybody. Really appreciated the layout, lots of places to get away from the bustle of the family/kids.

The owners are very responsive and gracious.

We've been doing family vacations for about 25 years and this is just about the best experience we've had. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Fantastic summer retreat off the beaten path

  • 5 of 5

Owners could not have been nicer from our first inquiry (to find out if it was appropriate for an 87-year-old grandmother; it was) to recommending we pick up a keg of beer for poolside (and installing the keg and even returning it for us). Surely, the best service our family group has experienced in our 15 years of travel together, most of it booked through VRBO. Meanwhile, the house was perfect for our needs, tidy and well-stocked. The big attraction is the large pool, of course, and even in June, the water was warm and inviting. The outdoor kitchen is an enormous plus as well with an icemaker and a grill that cranks out Btu's like nobody's business. Why aren't you staying here? The family member who booked the place for our retreat is now a hero, at least for this year.

The house will leave you speechless!

  • 5 of 5

Through out the month, speaking with Tama was wonderful. She would always respond back on the same day. Any questions you had, she'd answer. On the day of check-in I was running late, but my friend and her family of 3 was close to the location and was going to arrive earlier than me. I spoke with Tama and she was so welcoming to them that she met with them at the house and showed them around the house and how to use the hot tub and such. When I arrived at the house, my friends couldn't stop telling me how nice both the owners were, they also couldn't stop texting me about how gorgeous the house was. As we arrived to the house, from the front it will look small, but as you walk in, you're left speechless. The house was never ending with rooms. The weekend I was there, I was just speechless. The house was nothing to the pictures. It was spacious, it had everything we needed. It was clean and ready for us. We didn't have to bring towels, cooking supplies, spices, I mean they even had a double waffle maker and I brought my own, which I ended up not using because mine was a single waffle maker. Whenever we had questions or help, Tama was so quick to help us and Gary came to the house in a few minutes and fixed the hot tub when we couldn't get the jets to work. The house was close to Sunday River, about a 10 minute drive. We also did snowmobiling, which was also a 10 minute drive. The Sunday River bridge was down the street from the house, which is a beautiful location for pictures. Overall our stay was great. Our weekend was relaxing and we plan on getting the same house next year and possibly even for the summer time.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Mountain Hideaway was the perfect place for our extended family vacation. 9 adults and 3 children had plenty of room to relax as a big group or off alone. The pool was fantastic and a great way to spend late afternoons after being out enjoying all the area has to offer. Tama and Gary were so easy to work with. They took care of every detail and were quick to come unlock the door when we locked ourselves out on the first day! The proximity of the house to the mountain and the golf course make this a perfect spot all year round!

Fabulous home!

  • 5 of 5

Our small group stayed in this big home in July and we had more than enough space to enjoy! The home, pool and property are all very clean and well kept. Everything you need is there...dishes, fresh bedding and towels, supplies, BBQ, games and more. The owners are lovely people and available to assist should you need anything. We enjoyed BBQing and preparing dinners together in the big kitchen, eating indoors and out, swimming and lounging by the pool in the sun, great sleeps in comfortable beds with no noise, and even getting some laundry done before returning home. There's lots of summer activities to do in the surrounding area...white water rafting at ELC Outdoors was amazing! Highly recommend hiking on the mountain trails too. Great restaurants in Bethel as well. Overall...a wonderful home to enjoy in a beautiful location!
