    Because we were looking for a place to stay for two weeks, we were very interested in reviews, but found them mixed. We took a chance and booked. Perhaps we can clarify why the reviews were mixed. First, the 5 star aspects: floor plan on the main floor, view, location and garage. Air conditioning worked well. After that, more mixed. The living room and furniture was nice. Gas logs if you are there when it is cold. The dining room furniture was well-used, one chair even unsafe, but it was great to have a dining room which would seat six. Nice big kitchen. The furniture in the "view" room was well-chosen, but well-worn. The upstairs furniture was fine, except for the leaning footboard in the main bedroom. Nice big main bathroom; the other was small, but nice to also have a half bath.

    The standard cleaning was done well, but I did have to scrub some suspicious spots off the wall in the half bath and use club soda to get spots off the small rug in the view room. There were two mops and a broom, but no vacuum cleaner. Good laundry closet upstairs, but we found the dryer full of damp linens which had been there for a few days, so it smelled, and we had to deal with that. Plenty of linens and paper goods.

    The decks are great, but in need of power washing. Good furniture, which was all on the lower deck when we arrived, but in one of the pictures, two of the chairs were on the upper deck. There was gas for the grill, but it did not function. A black bear ambled across the upper deck early one morning.

    There is plenty of parking, but a little awkward - two levels. The road up from Highway 64 is lovely and not too steep.

    We did enjoy our stay. Hope this detail is helpful.

    The house needs a little TLC in areas. If you came for the mountain air and the scenery then it is 5+ stars. Definitely would stay again !
