  • It really IS cozy!


    The two days we went to Fries it was cold and rained constantly, so there wasn't any hiking and such. The house is lovingly remodeled and updated (and cozy!), so it wasn't a hardship staying in. Puzzles, movies, and reading by the gas-log fireplace. Great meals in local restaurants; nice view from the covered porch; and NO traffic! Peaceful weekend.

  • Well stocked small house


    Very comfortable small house had everything you might need. Loved listening to the river from the front porch. I will admit I wasn't a fan of the winding 2 lane roads to get to the house.

    The stay here a was very pleasant and peaceful one. We attended a wedding that was right down at the river. The house has all the amenities you can think of including a kitchen stocked with the basics such as salt, pepper, and ketchup. The neighbors are very friendly. The host have a guest book be sure to sign!!!! They also have a table with listed seasonal activities and other things to look forward to.

    The only thing I would to be cautious of is the roads be aware that you are going up a mountain and the roads are winding, we did encounter a few deer that darted across the road on the way down the mountain. There are a couple of local small stores in town but the major stores, gas stations and markets are located about 20 mins away in each directions.

    Serenity is what we experienced!!!
