5/5 Excellent

Bill and Linda are phenomenal hosts. We stayed as a group of 4 with our 2 dogs and they had extra special doggy baskets prepared for us. Our dogs loves the back yard. We were snowed in and Linda provided great local ideas of what to do with our extra day. Would come back!

5/5 Excellent

Quick getaway
The Great Escape was the cleanest rental we have ever stayed in and also one of the most well stocked! We loved all of the little added touches like the doggy basket and hot tub friendly glasses. Our family of 4 plus beagle/retriever mix were very comfortable in the house and having the enclosed back yard was a game changer! Linda and Bob were very responsive to all of my last minute questions and even checked to make sure we got their ok on our check in day. Overall a wonderful house for our much needed getaway!

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful cabin
Wonderful property. Probably the cleanest rental I have ever been in. Well-stocked. Communication was excellent. Will return! Thanks!

5/5 Excellent

Just as great the second time
We stayed at Bob and Linda's in Nov with friends and loved it so much that we came back for a winter break getaway. The house is perfect in terms of cleanliness and amenities. Linda and Bob make check in easy and easy to get a hold of. Everything you might need - from groceries to hiking, is within 15 min. Would def recommend.

5/5 Excellent

Escape to the Cozy Cabin
What a awesome cabin!! The Great Escape was immaculately clean and cozy for our stay. The hot tube was wonderful. Our host, Linda and Bob, provided us with detailed information regarding our cabin stay and local things to do and places to eat. They made our experience in Vally truly special! Can’t wait to return for some summer hiking and waterfalls. Thank you!
