  • Clean, adorable Mtn views Cottage


    Super clean with a fantastic view. We love this area and this cottage was perfect. The flower pots, bird feeders and outdoor seating is awesome. Everything you need in the kitchen and charcoal grill for outdoor cooking. Furniture and beds were comfortable. The WiFi worked great the whole week.

    When we showed up we were in awe!!! This little place is beautiful. It had everything we needed. Perfect place to disconnect as there is no cell signal at all, wifi is very hit and miss which is nice because you can’t rely on it so you are truly disconnected. It’s a wonderful yet odd feeling. There was sat tv but that too was spotty. Again not a bad thing considering we were there to relax connect and recharge. This house has the best view on the mountain. Mornings were spectacular to wake up to. I will definitely be coming back. Thank you so much for making this wonderful home available to us.
