Perfect Lake Retreat in the Mountains
My wife, kids, and I wanted to escape to an idyllic house on the lake for the holidays, and the Nordy Nest did not disappoint! The house was beautifully decorated for the holidays with a Christmas tree in the living room included. The wood burning fireplace in the evenings was great. The area was a lot of fun with hiking trails and lots of scenic views of the lake and mountains. The house had all kinds of little areas to sit, relax, and enjoy the view out over the lake. And my young kids enjoyed the fooseball table downstairs. We really enjoyed our time at the Nordy Nest and can't wait to come back!

5/5 Excellent
