Hi-speed WIFI is provided, so bring your devices! The Verizon cell phone signal is strong and a land-line phone is also provided.
This home has a tasteful and warm historic-western-lodge decor that harmonizes beautifully. The living room includes accents of antique heirloom furniture in the midst of comfortable new upscale furnishings. There is even a real western saddle on display in the corner! A large flat screen TV is built into the rustic stone fireplace. The open and spacious fully equipped kitchen has quartz counter tops, ample hickory cabinets, new appliances, and everything you'll need for preparing and serving your meals. Comfort is assured with forced-air central heating and air conditioning throughout. You'll never run out of hot water with our instant on-demand water heater.

All three bedrooms are down the hall and everyone has easy access to a bathroom.
