house is nice

  • 4 of 5

Nice house. Had a great time. Driveway is hard to get to top with a 2 wheel drive. Would do it again.

Thank you,

Great cottage in the woods

  • 4 of 5

Clean, well outfitted, comfortable house in the woods of Twain Harte. Lynette was friendly, and prompt to reply. My twin boys loved the bunk bed and play area on the second floor. The house is up on a slope above the road, so if you are coming in the winter, be sure to have a 4x4 or adequate chains to get up. Otherwise, you can park on the road, and walk up.
