Great location and Comfortable House

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. There were 4 adults and 3 children, though the house could certainly have accommodated more. The house was warm and cozy, very accessible to Burke Mountain, and very clean. The rooms were spacious and neat. It was a pleasure to deal with Luke and Cheryl. We will look forward to renting this house again next year!

Outstanding location

  • 5 of 5

We were 4 adults and 3 children. The house was very clean and well equipped and the yard was awesome. We came up for the weekend to mountain bike and hike. The location can't be beat, park your car and walk or bike to everything East Burke has to offer, the kingdom trails are right out the door. Cheryl and Luke were very responsive and accommodating. We look forward to renting here again next summer.

An amazing rental experience!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled with our experience at the Shire House. Both the owners and the property manager were incredibly helpful and pleasant. The house is in perfect condition and right in town by Bailey and Burke's and Burke mountain. The way the house is laid out is perfect for kids and families. It is by far the best rental we've had (and we've had a bunch!!!) -Val
