    House is kitted out for Snow Bunnies, it's nice and warm with the fire on, and there is a great rumpus room. Nice big yard for the kids to kick a ball when the weather is nice.

  • We had fun staying at found the Old forge

    We had fun staying at found the Old forge. Very warm with huge fire and a total of 8 electric heaters! There was no door on the 3rd bedroom which was an issue for us with the kids. Fence had some big holes right next to the dogs tied up next door so this was hard with a toddler. Would have been useful to know that kindling/paper was not provided. Great house for a family with older kids/teenagers, or 3 couples. Pool room was lots of fun.
