Amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

The views were simply astounding. I could set on the patio all day and just stare at the mountains and watch the wildlife. Upon arrival, we found a very clean and well-prepared home for us. We like the layout with two bedrooms at one end of the house and the other bedroom at the other end, it allowed for some separation. Very clean and well equipped. We were unable to take advantage of all the outdoor options available due to the weather, but we are anxious to go back and take in the hiking trails. Communication with the owner prior to arrival was excellent along with the local property manager. Would highly recommend this property and hope to return again.
