3/5 Okay

Beautiful location
The location and scenery were beautiful. We had a wedding there and it snowed 5-8 inches the day of which was not to bad. The wood stove kept the place warm. But the house is solor and the lights kept going out which was very stressful. And the master bedroom was not getting any heat so it made the room really cold. Mark was fantastic and tried to help as much as he could. But with all the snow it made the drive way pretty bad. Mark did try to help but he showed up at 11 which was check out time. So everyone had left.
