Great House, Cozy and All You Need For a Winter Mountain Stay
Ellen L – February 2016

We loved the house; we travel a lot and the house was so well equipped. There is an adjoining cabin as others have mentioned with connecting steps, but we did not have any problems. Its a lovely location though during the winter they are not kidding about needing 4W or all W drive. We had all wheel and made out fine as the property managers we very dedicated to keeping the drive in a manner that we could go up and down. They left enough snow for traction and did a great job plowing as needed. The hot tub is hot, the WIFI worked flawlessly, the master bed was very comfortable. Our kids loved the privacy of the upstairs; the Great room and fireplace were enjoyed, the view is lovely; Joanie was very easy to contact and text with questions about the weather LOL!! Thank you Joanie!! You really made the stay. We would come back and would love to see it in the fall and spring as it’s surrounded by woods and mountain laurel!!
