We found the home to be very comfortable and enjoyed listening to the rushing stream. The toilets were a pleasant surprise and we are looking getting one for our home!

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, clean, has everything you need. Fenced in backyard was great! Had a few inches of fresh snow the weekend I stayed here, it was great to have the carport to cover up my car! Hot tub is perfect under the stars. Great getaway for a quite weekend. Dam Diner is on the way to Stratton, talk about a score, love that place.

Romantic & private getaway.

  • 4 of 5

This private cottage is a great place to go when you want to get away from all the hustle & bustle. The home was clean and had a beautiful large living room. We enjoyed the hot tub & hiking with our dogs while on vacation. There was a lot of snow and the home was located in a nice private wooded area. The cottage is not too far from Stratton. The grocery store was also not too far and had everything we needed. We would recommend it to friends & family. It was a great place to stay and we would definitely go back again next winter.
