Relaxing weekend

  • 5 of 5

Charlie was very welcoming and accommodating from the start of our stay. He met us at the house to show us around and answer any questions we had. The house was beautiful and very updated. There was plenty of room for everyone to sleep comfortably. The ride to Gunstock mountain was only 10 minute and very convenient. I would definitely stay here again!

Relaxing getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This property is set back out of the way of the hustle and bustle! Very quiet and relaxing with all the amenities! Back deck with gas fire pit is wonderful and faces the woods! Wonderful host Charlie is very helpful and accommodating! Hiking and Lake activities are close by but not too close to be overwhelmed by people/tourists! I highly recommend this rental. Dog friendly was extremely important to me! 👍�🏽�👍�🏽�

What wonderful time we had. The house was spacious and beautiful and well appointed.

  • 5 of 5

What wonderful time we had. The house was spacious and beautiful and well appointed. With a large back deck, fire pit, spacious kitchen, living room and bedrooms…We couldn't have asked for more. The property was was private and quiet located on a cul-de-sac. Our hosts were gracious and accommodating, pointing out activities and local places of interest. All of this made our vacation exactly what we hoped for. We hope to be back often and recommend this home to anyone looking for and exceptional vacation experience.

Beautiful house in a beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

The property was very clean and well kept. When I arrived Charlie and Kristin were waiting to show me around. The outside was perfect, with a large deck, grill, gas fireplace and a huge garden they told us to help ourselves too! If we are back in the area we will definitely try to stay here again.

Thank you!
