5/5 Excellent

4 1/2 stars. Amazing property! Would stay again.
We stayed for a few days in the summer along with family (turned out to be 12 of us). The owner was easy to work with, cared about the property, and very responsive. The cabin, property and views are absolutely amazing! Plenty to do and explore. We had lots of fun in the game room and truly appreciated that amenity since it rained during our stay. The kitchen was beautiful, spacious and had everything we needed (other than food of course). Bedrooms, bathrooms and common areas were cleaned satisfactorily - it just needed some extra care in a couple of hard to reach areas (grates, grill, fly traps, etc.). Our only complaint is there were some things that could use repair/replacement/updating and I highly recommend the owner assess and resolve those items. BUT, none of these things were deal breakers - the place was very nice overall and we would definitely stay there again!

5/5 Excellent

Great time, beautiful view!!
The view from this property is amazing!! The sunset right over the mountains at night it was so beautiful. We all had a great stay!

5/5 Excellent

Great family getaway
We had plenty to do for all ages on the property! Very nice house and land we enjoyed both fire pits. great spot for the dogs to run around. Only left once for a hike which was a short drive away.

4/5 Good

Happy Sweet 16th Birthday
The property itself is gorgeous, the setting is amazing. The house needed some updates. Broken tub which the owner seemed to want to blame on us. Beds need new mattresses, Tiles cracked and out of place. The couches are too old. We opened the BBQ to find the previous people left old food and wrappers that had flies all over them and stunk!

5/5 Excellent

Beautiful property!!
We rented this property for a few days to celebrate our daughter's 16th birthday. The house is gorgeous with so much room, the view is breathtaking. The kitchen is spacious and has everything needed to cook large amounts of food. We reached out to the owner while there a few times and he responded immediately. Very accommodating! We walked the property, went sledding and sat by a warm fire at night. This was a perfect experience in every way!!
