  • The Tower


    This rental had comfortable furniture, plenty of quality towels, dishes, cutlery & within walking distance to town. Internet service was good. However, it needs a deep cleaning & attention to some maintenance issues - for instance, none of the windows opened. It would have been helpful to have had some type of home book to guide us on the particulars of this house.

  • Very disappointing property


    The house wreaks of smoke from the fireplace. VRBO and the property manager would not refund our stay.

  • Great escape from the heat!


    The Mountain View was great. The new kitchen, new furniture and very comfy beds were great. Plenty of towels. The outdoor patio is where we lived!!! The telescope on the third floor was fun!

  • Nice house, walkable into town if you don't mind the hills


    Nice house, had everything we needed for a short girls trip. Good location to walk into town, just know there are some hills you will be climbing back up. Beds were comfortable. Had a few maintenance issues the property manager needs to address. We did call but did not hear back.

  • This is a great place!


    This house is very nice and the covered porch on the 1st floor, right outside the Living Room & Kitchen, is terrific! We spent a lot of time out there. A gate off the porch for dogs and children to roam was a plus. Upscale appliances, new grill, nice towels, good cookware, everything you need to make for a very pleasant stay!
