Country setting beautiful trees quite well kept scenery breathtaking!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience, from the moment we made contact with the owner to the final deposit refund. The property was above and beyond our expectations. We received information re travel to and from, attractions restaurant. The house was immaculate, and information from using appliances to wifi were clearly available. Space was ample and cleanliness was top notch. House was filled with books, videos, very homey feeling.

All information we received prior to arriving was accurate to the T....

Everything discussed was true to the discription. I would recommend this property to anyone, it felt just like home. We can't wait till next year !

The owners were extremely helpful in every aspect of our vacation from fist contact till the end!

Immaculate, well-stocked condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here last year for an end of summer getaway. This bright, cheerful townhouse was immaculate and decorated quite nicely with plenty of supplies, including a nice selection of spices. The mattresses were firm and comfortable. Plenty of games for the kids. We all really enjoyed our stay and would definitely consider renting again.

Extremely Relaxing, perfect Ski weekend getaway, felt like home

  • 5 of 5

Rich and Penny were incredibly easy to work with. The communication was top notch and the rental process was very easy and smooth.

The house was perfect for 8. It was very clean, well maintained and very comfortable. It was a prefect location for skiing at Big Boulder. You could see the slopes off the back deck. We've rented many houses for family vacations and quick weekend getaways over the years with friends and family, and I can honestly say this is the first place we've ever rented where we didn't have a single complaint. We will definitely look to rent this house again.

Thanks for a great weekend Rich and Penny, first class.

Owner's Response: I know Ed was concerned about size of home for 8. With 4 adults and 4 children for get away it is a great size everyone can have their own private space. Ed and family were wonderful guest and they are welcome back.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the Laurelwoods property. Rich and Penny, the owners, were attentive to all our needs and communicated with us regularly before and after the stay - very much appreciated! The house was well kept, and had everything we could have needed. We were concerned when the temps were predicted to go into the 90's, and the house does not have a/c. However, the many fans kept us cool through the week. The beach club had a nice pool, and the Boulder View Tavern and Nick's Place were on the lake and made for enjoyable happy hours. Thanks, and we would be happy to stay again!

Owner's Response: It really is amazing how it can be so hot only a hour away and Lake Harmony just has a cooler breeze so its still comfortable. Besides why go to the mountains to just stay inside. Great people to work with maybe they will think about a ski weekend with us also.

Big boulder vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was lovely. Had everything we needed to make it a comfortable stay. The masterbedroom bed was soo comfortable, like sleeping on a cloud. My husband had to take a picture of the label and we will be getting The same one! We loved everything about the house, from the huge Jacuzzi to the tasteful decor.

The lake club was just down the hill 3 minute drive or a 15 minute walk. The pool was very clean and warmer than years past. The lake was also really nice..there is a nice restaurant and a good outdoor seating area.

Overall great , relaxing place.

Owner's Response: The master bedroom mattress is the best, if you only knew how many positive reviews on the mattress. Thank you for confirming the distance to the lake from our home minutes by car and a nice casual walk along the lake front. Wonderful guest to work with and hopefully a future ski weekend or summer stay in the future.
