    We could not have asked for a better place to stay. It was so relaxing sitting on the patio and watching the hummingbirds and listening to the creek. The owner was great on touching base with us before the trip and after.

  • Magical place!!!


    Omg from the moment you walk on the parking lot… this home is a magical place! My children, husband and myself truly enjoyed EVERY moment spent in the home. If you forgot anything… NO WORRIES! They’ve thought of everything.

  • Charming! Lovely! Amazing!


    This is the best place I've stayed at in a long time. The setting is ideal - secluded, beautiful, close to so many hiking options. And the place itself is just charming. Full of fun, creative details; cozy; fully-stocked; very clean. Love it!
