    House was centrally located, walkable to the town, and in a quiet neighborhood. We enjoyed the massage chairs, star gazing, and the visitng deer.

    Beautiful house with plenty of room and met our needs. Might need to spray for insects. One siter had a bug bite and a spider was found in another sisters shoe! Luckily no bit there! Overall great stay.

  • Nice house in a great location.


    Overall it was a great stay. The house is in a great location right on the Mickelson trail which make it easy to bike into town. The guest contact was very responsive and we had no issues checking in. The house was clean and had plenty of room. As others have mentioned, with the open layout of the house it is a bit loud. Didn’t really bother us at all. The massage chairs up stairs were awesome after a day of hiking or biking. Definitely a nice touch. One thing that would’ve been nice is having a grill available at the house. With the great scenery it would be nice to cook outside. Overall very pleased with our stay.
