Exceeded our expecations. Beautiful apartment. Very clear communication pre-stay!
The Hosts From the moment we booked our reservation, we couldn't wait to get there. After talking to Tink on the phone, we were relieved to know that we made the right choice and would be in great "hands". Everything was easy from there on out. And perfect. When we arrived, Peter was there to greet us outside and show us down to the cabin. He showed us around a little and we talked. He was so nice to recommend some local places and hiking trails nearby- (we hiked this great trail right behind the house). IN general, the hosts were absolutely wonderful. Warm, lovely people, really. The Cottage The first thing that was great about this place was that it was dog friendly. We wanted it to be a family trip, and knowing that they were okay with us having our dog there was a big plus. When I stepped into the cottage for the first time, I was surprised that it wasn't just a normal ole' "cabin in the woods". This place is newly renovated, with really nice floors, and great track lighting! The kitchen has everything but a dishwasher, which wasn't a problem- washing my own dishes was kind of nice, and added to the "rustic" feel of being up in the mountains. The "cottage" feel was definitely enhanced by the cozy pillows and blankets- all infused with lavender, which made it smell so nice and relaxing- like a spa! Speaking of spa, I need to talk about the bathroom here. It has a bear claw tub which is absolutely adorable, and man oh man is there water pressure! I wasn't expecting such excellent water pressure out there, but I was pleasantly surprised. The towels were big and soft, and the decor was warm and inviting. I liked the sink too! The patio that wraps around the place is also really nice. We sat out there and drank coffee in the lounge chairs, and ate breakfast outside at the table on the patio. It was so nice to wake up and just gaze out there at the lake and the mountains. I can't stress enough how relaxing this was. Can you tell we had a great time and loved it? Because we did!! I would recommend this place to anyone looking to get away for a relaxing, cozy weekend. I almost want to keep this place a secret because I'm afraid they'll get so popular that they will be booked solid for the next three years and we won't be able to get in! Thank you for a lovely stay. We will be back!
