You’ll love how bright and spacious the interior feels, boasting mountain inspired decor, cozy furnishings, and lots of windows that let in plenty of natural light. After a thrilling day exploring the great outdoors, refuel with a meal prepared in the large kitchen, which comes fully equipped with all the necessary appliances, a coffeemaker, toaster, dinnerware, basic cookware, and utensils for 8. Gather around the rustic dining room table that seats 6 to enjoy a meal with your loved ones. There’s also extra seating for 4 guests at the convenient breakfast bar. You’ll find it easy to unwind in the lovely living room, where you can cozy up by the toasty fireplace with a good book, or watch cable shows on the TV for entertainment. Once your evening has come to a close, retreat to the relaxing master bedroom, complete with a king-sized bed, twin-sized sleeper sofa, fireplace, television, jetted tub, and private balcony, offering access to the breathtaking forested views outside. The second bedroom is equally pleasing with its own private balcony and 2 queen-sized beds, which practically guarantee a good night’s rest! 

Ideally situated for outdoor enthusiasts, this property allows you to take full advantage of a wide variety of year-round recreation.

Comfort & relaxation

  • 5 of 5

We had a really good time it's a very comfortable place and my elderly father got to relax in front of the fireplace . The walk-in shower was very convenient for him. We played lots of settlers of Catan which we brought . The kids enjoyed the water park on Sunday as Thursdays and Sundays are the only days that you can enjoy the waterpark. Not owners fault just how it is. We had fun playing laser tag and my little girl (2 1/2)enjoyed the jump houses and the big slide @ Jack's Place. The only things I felt were missing, which it all worked out, just would've been more convenient, is another cookie sheet & a large frying pan. We brought good knives, but a couple good knives would be a good addition. Just could've used as your cooking for 2 families. Coffee pot worked great! They had coffee & filters available but We had brought our own coffee. Plenty of towels. They also had dish soap and a few dishwasher pods available, plenty of toilet paper. Only needed a couple extra rolls. Roll of paper towels were available. I'd just bring an extra. I like to wash a lot so we went out to get laundry soap. But all in all we had a great weekend! We'd definitely do it again:)
