  • Very lovely!


    We really loved our stay! The house is absolutely so gorgeous and decorated perfectly. Great towels and sheets and pillows. The twin bed mattresses are really think and uncomfortable for adults but would be ok for small children

    The oven wouldn’t turn on and we ready everything we could online but couldn’t get it to work. I did text the contact but didn’t hear back.

    Overall we loved it!

  • Awesome Mountain house w/great updates


    Wonderful location - house is as advertised and is better in person than the great photos on the listing. Only issue is the room with twin beds has a door with clear glass - so zero privacy for that room and it Won't keep sound / light out. They should fix that. Otherwise wonderful ! We will be back !

  • A relaxing escape


    This property is everything that is listed! We were absolutely so pleased with our entire time there. They clearly spared no detail designing this space. It was hard not to appreciate the work they put into such a charming cottage. The furniture was comfortable, the kitchen had everything you needed to cook, the linens and towels were very soft and comfortable, and they even had full bottle shampoo, conditioner, and body wash for both of the bathrooms! If you bring a gate to block the stairs, this house is very child-friendly. We didn't have to worry about our 15-month-old getting hurt in the house. The location of the house was perfect. Less than 5 five drive into town, but you had the privacy of a mountain cabin. This property is one we would happily visit again!

    We had a great time. There are some items that could have improved our experience and are listed as follows:

    1. The second floor does not have HVAC - a drawback in my opinion.

    2. More lighting in the living room / family room area would have improved our experience.

    3. A toaster oven would allow for quicker breakfast preparation.

    4. The garage had a musty smell and a lot of debris that could be removed.

    5. Some of the exterior needs help.

    6. There were no spare light bulbs for several of the fixtures.

    7. I would like to know which keys went to which door.

    8. I would suggest a larger marker for the entrance road - not easy to find at night.

    9. On-site fishing was noted in the description and we found no directions tell us how to reach the lake or stream.

    10. The local contact was great to assist with a power failure by contacting the utility. She responded right away.
