Amazing mountain property with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property which is really well designed and maintained. The house is spacious and has lovely furnishings. The front and back porches provide great outdoor spaces for relaxing and the views are incredible. We got great information about hiking in the area and never felt the need to leave the mountain. Can't wait to go back.

Fantastic property with amazing views and solitude

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible long weekend at this beautiful mountaintop home and didn't want to leave. This has to be the most well-equipped, well-appointed and best stocked homes we have stayed at. The unobstructed views of the mountains and valley are amazing. You are literally above the clouds at this home. When we walked along the mountain road, we didn't see another person. Just more great views. If you're looking for solitude, this is the place. The house is so spacious, great furnishings, and we loved lounging on the huge sofa in front of the fireplace. My only regret is not being able to use the firepit since the weather didn't permit us to. I guess we will just have to go back.

Beautiful new house with gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

5 stars for beautiful, new, and clean house with open kitchen, large bathrooms, and loud stereo system. The tricky drive up the mountain (our Honda minivan made it up well with NO rain, snow, or ice) was a little intense. Particularly enjoyed the well stocked kitchen, quality pots and pans, and coffee maker. The master bed was incredibly comfortable, loved the mattress! Would have loved a blowdryer though.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review and we're happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. There is normally a blow dryer in the master bathroom but it may have been moved during a house cleaning. We'll look into this to make sure it's back in place.
