A home away from home

  • 5 of 5

It was one experience that is yet to be beaten. The place is homey and cozy. It has everything we needed that made our stay comfortable despite the very cold weather outside.The owner and property manager were awesome. They were easy to communicate with. It was 10min ride (or less) away from Mountain Creek. We'll definitely be back.

Best Deal in the Area! Better than home!!

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay at the HLC, spacious 3 bedrooms with high quality mattresses in all three ensured we slept soundly, room darkening drapes were a great plus. We brought our dog Max with us and were concerned that he might be cramped and unhappy but no need to worry! The extra large sunroom gave our pooch plenty of space to play with wall to wall views of the large fenced yard. The home did not smell of pets, and Max played ball outside safely all day, getting lots of exercise in a way he can't even do at home! This was a big deal to us, and makes this home better than any we have rented in the area. The large fire pit was supplied with a ton of wood and was a great focal point when we entertained our good friends into the night. Michael and the manager Polly kept the yard manicured even thinking to have it mowed right before we had guests. Movie night was awesome with the brand new HUGE tv and PS 3 and 4 for streaming netflix, and playing games - way better than at home or our present rental who is charging more per night! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, with the reliable wifi, high tech docking station for phones and tablets, beach passes... Couldn't be happier with the memories we made here. Michael's attention to detail is unmatched. We will definitely stay again and will recommend this property to friends and relatives.

5 Crazy Spartan Beast Runners

  • 4 of 5

I just wanted to start off by saying how awesome mike and polly were with communication. Any questions I had they answered it in within the hour and they also recommended some really good places to go for dinner and breakfast.

Our overall stay was good except for there are no bunkbeds in the cottage as it is stated and pictured. Thats is where it got a little crazy with sleeping arrangments. We had one couple (husband and I) 2 woman and 1 guy. We thought we had it all planned out until we got there Friday night at 10:00 PM after driving 5 hours from NH :( It all worked out in the end but this should be edited so it doesn't say bunks beds in the description of the cabin.

I loved how close this place was to Mountain Creek. It took us about 10 minutes to get there. After running a 13+mile Spartan race up the mountain, the last thing we wanted was a 45 min drive back to a hotel room.

I would recommend this cute cottage to anyone!!!

Owner's Response: Thanks Larissa, I'm glad you guys had a great time !!! A while back I had removed all text in the ad regarding the bunk beds which have been replaced with a full sized bed with a memory foam mattress. I didn't realize I forgot to remove the photo of the bunk beds which I have now done. Thanks for pointing it out to me!

A wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were more than pleased with both the accomodations and the graciousness of both the homes owner and property manager. Mr. Collins made sure that when we arrived, all of our needs were met and answered any questions that we had. Polly, the property manager, kindly allowed a late check out so that we could enjoy the morning snow tubing. The home is well equipped, clean, and inviting, very close to Mountain Creek. Another plus is that they allow pets, and have a fenced backyard so our dog could play with our childeren. I would, and have reccomended this property to friends and family. Thanks again for a wonderful stay and we look forward to visiting again in the near future.
