  • House was wonderful

    House was wonderful. Warm, clean and well provisioned. Owners were great to deal with and a perfect spot. Fabulous heating throughout.

  • The place is so spacious and meticulously cleaned

    The place is so spacious and meticulously cleaned. The rooms are all neatly set with huge comfy beds! (What else can you ask after a whole day of fun from sunrise to sundown?) The relaxing view of the full moon rising from the sides of the mountain is a perfect picture frame from the dining area. Really loved the welcome pastries! Looking forward on the next schedule…

    Great place to stay! Was so nice to arrive late at night to beds already made up and the fire set to go. Very warm inside the house despite the frost outside. The sunny deck was an added bonus to sit and take in the mountain views. Would definitely recommend, we'll be back for sure.

    Great house for a group, as the bedrooms are away from the living areas - and the two bathrooms made it very comfortable for us all. The house was very warm, but enjoyed having the fire - and all the firewood supplied too. The kitchen was well equipped, with all we needed. Loved the fresh new decor.
