My family and I had the pleasure of staying in John and Larissa’s home the weekend of 10/26-10/28 .
The four of us, my oldest sons girlfriend and two other families, for a total of six adults and eight kids (ages 9-18) were able to comfortably fit without getting in each others way.
This home had a wonderful all seasons room with a wood stove where the adults hung out most of the time (it was a cold, wet weekend, so we were unable to do outside activities.) The room has two couches and several chairs which made it easy for us to sit, relax, talk and enjoy a drink and it was spacious enough for us to sit and play games with our kids.
The kitchen was well equipped which made it easy for us to cook, make coffee or grab a snack. There were dish towels for us to use, plenty of dishes and utensils, a coffeemaker, microwave, water cooler and the normal kitchen appliances as well.
The living room/dining area was a large space. The dining table could fit 8 adults easily. I. In the living room area there were two couches one of which had a large pull out bed. The fireplace, which we did not use was lovely. Their was a large, wall mounted tv, that received many channels, which all the boys/men appreciated so they could watch basketball and football.
Also on the first floor their was a full bath that had plenty of hot water and towels for us to use, a utility room with a washer and dryer, a large bedroom with a queen or king bed (I’m not sure since I did not sleep in that room), dresser, desk and plenty of floor space for and air bed if needed. The second bedroom on the first floor was smaller, but held two twin beds, chair, and nightstand. All the beds had pillows, sheets and comforters.
Upstairs there was two bedrooms and a bathroom as well. Six of the eight kids fit in the room on the left using the two beds and a couple of air mattresses. The upper room on the right held a large bed and had plenty of room for air mattresses if needed. All the upstairs beds also had pillows, sheets and comforters.
John and Larissa’s home was an easy drive into Old Forge and several grocery stores, if needed. A five minute walk from their home was a bar and restaurant which had really good chicken wings and was a fun place to hang out. Up the road was a diner where we had a good breakfast Sunday morning.
All, in all our stay at John and Larissa’s home was comfortable, fun and we would definitely stay there again.
This house was GORGEOUS inside and out! Lauren was so incrediblely nice leaving us instructions as well as a personalized welcome card which included her cell phone number. Kitchen was fully stocked (bottles of water, coffe, condiments, misc items in the cabinet, and all the dishes and items you could need). I forgot paper products (toilet paper and paper towels) and it wasn’t needed since Lauren left plenty of that behind as well.
Would stay again!
