An amazing getaway for birthday weekend!
Where to begin??? We had the pleasure of staying in this beautiful lodge for a birthday weekend in February. A group of 10 adults, there was more than enough room to accommodate all of us. The privacy of the location was awesome - we felt away from it all. The beds were comfortable and warm -- although we were completely spoiled with the stellar daytime weather -- it was nearly 80. As soon as the sun was down, it cooled off substantially and we were able to fully enjoy the fireplace. We brought our own firewood (because normally you have to - it's never provided), but in this case, there was a huge stack of wood for our use. We simply just added ours to the pile! The kitchen was MORE than stocked!! I've never rented a property that was as well appointed as this one! From pots, pans, wine openers (important!), cheese graters, griddles, waffle maker, blender....enough glasses/mugs for an army. Paper goods provided were more than ample. Bathrooms were clean and perfectly situated for our large group. A beautiful lodge both inside and out -- lots of beautiful artwork. Outside - a huge lot - with plenty of seating areas - the most fabulous canopied lounge! So cool that my husband has talked about nothing else but how he's going to build one for our yard! A jacuzzi, outdoor stove/oven, ping pong, and most importantly -- a trampoline. You'd think that 10, 40-somethings wouldn't be interested - but you're wrong! We had a blast on that thing! The property manager was great. I never even talked with her. Just emailed back and forth. She was very accommodating and pleasant. Her instructions were clear and easy to follow. We visited the town each day. Shopped, ate, drank. The only disappointment to all of us was dinner out on Saturday night. We went to the Creek House. Would not recommend. The food was just okay - the service was less than accommodating for our party. We spent a huge amount of money and weren't remotely impressed. This was unfortunate as it came highly recommended. I'm only including this information to enlighten future renters! Thanks so much for sharing this amazing place! I'm hoping to put together another trip in the fall. We'll definitely be back!
