This place was pretty - when we pulled in, we were confused - it's two rentals in the same building and ours was on bottom floor (probably my misunderstanding!) The drive up to the house is a very steep, one-lane gravel road. It was pretty intimidating driving up it at night because it was pitch black - plus there is a sharp left turn uphill to the house. The parking in the back was hard to get into/out of - you can only pull straight in and then you have to back up down the steep hill (unless your car is super small and you get it turned around somehow). When someone is parked outside the upstairs rental (which is the view you get in the photos online) it makes it impossible to turn around, but when that spot was empty I was able to maneuver it. The view was gorgeous and if I didn't have to leave the whole time (which we had to because there is not a full kitchen, so you can't cook anything other than microwavable food), it would be a great place to stay. Very clean - comfortable bed.

Hi Stephanie, we're so glad you enjoyed your stay overall and the beautiful views, but we're sorry you had difficulty parking your vehicle. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
- We want all our guests to feel prepared to enjoy their stay so before each guest's arrival, we email a Welcome Book, which notes that larger vehicles would be difficult to park.
- The upstairs is not a rental; it is our summer home.
- As explained in the description of the property and the Welcome Book, there is only a microwave oven. We would never try to mislead our guests as our goal is always to provide an ideal stay for all guests.
The owners truly go above and beyond for our guests, and we are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!
The place is advertised. Very nice, modern and clean. Very nice place! Love the deck view. If you are looking for a place to Netflix and chill, this isn't it. The owners were upfront and honest about. If you want a place to stay after hiking all day, this is the place.
Marc, thanks for the great review. If you’re back in our area, we’d love to have you stay with us again.
This rental is exactly as the pictures represent it, if not better. It was clean, well appointed and the view was picture postcard perfect. You could never get tired of it. Jeff and Christine have put a lot of thought into their rental and they were very helpful in many ways and very personable. Thank you Christine and Jeff for sharing your home. Hope to return soon. Mary and Ronnie
