Peaceful getaway with a great view
We were able to enjoy a wonderful home, an amazing view, starry night skies, and most of all, seclusion. We had everything we needed for an enjoyable experience. We hope to visit again in the near future!
Perfect Chalet in the mountains
My friends and I absolutely loved staying here. It was 10 of us and the house was the perfect size. It was beautiful inside-out. There was a lot of snow which made the entire yard into a winter wonderland playground. The views from the ground floor and the upstairs balcony are breathtaking. We thoroughly enjoyed taking in those views while having breakfast each morning. The interior decor is stunning with high ceilings and 2 fireplaces.
We did a lot of cooking while we were there. I'm grateful for how very well the kitchen is stocked with pots, pans, utensils, cutlery, dishes and a dishwasher!! The stove is electric which I'm not used to, but it worked pretty well. There's a grill on the porch which we didn't use because unfortunately it was too cold outside. There are tons of board games and a poker table. We loved it there and would definitely love to be back at different times of the year. Merry Lee was very informative and her responses were prompt. We had no issues with anything while we were there and didn't have to bother her with anything. Hopefully we can make it back there soon.
Great place with privacy
It's a big house with a lot of privacy and beautifully kept. Would definitely think about going back here next year
Everything was so great!!
Just as described! We are definitely looking to come back soon
