Mountain top magic
A perfect weekend get away! Tammy and Mark were the perfect hosts…warm and welcoming but not intrusive. The porch overlooking the valley was amazing. I don’t know if there are bird feeders there but the variety of birds playing in the trees was really incredible, keeping us entertained while enjoying our morning coffee in the comfy robes that were in our room. Close to beautiful river area and fun trails to hike, as well as atv rentals if that’s you interest. So glad we went and will be back! I will add that Tammy is the most informative host ever, with a pretrip message that covers everything you can imagine and quick to respond to questions.
