A Magical Oasis Indeed
We spent a fantastic weekend in the mountain forest oasis! Maria is so kind and thoughtful, putting finishing touches on her house that one would not normally think to do, that made it so beautiful and at the same time felt homey. It had snowed the day before, and as promised, every room in the house has magnificent views of the trees, which were all covered in snow. It was truly an amazing sight to see. Maria was so sweet to have fire ready for us so we were able to start the fireplace immediately, and hot chocolate packets out on the counter so we drank our hot chocolate and enjoyed the fire to warm up after the cold fun outside! The property is also very conveniently located, only a few short minutes to the local store (also with very sweet and helpful staff) and the Antler Inn for supper (which is very delicious by the way). We also enjoyed the large screen TV above the fireplace, which was already set up with Netflix (so convenient! We were able to watch everything from Gilmore Girls to kids cartoons to Top Gear). Additionally, there were tons of DVDs to choose from and fun games for children and adults! The game room at the entry level was equally entertaining, so everyone enjoyed ping pong and the pool table! At other times we just enjoyed staring out at snow-capped nature. The beds were soo comfortable and soft! We slept very well! The gas range and stove are also very nice. We baked cookies, made pancakes and eggs. For some reason a previous reviewer did not find enough dishes. We were confused by that because there were plenty of everything for cooking and eating (more than enough for 8 people). Additionally, a previous reviewer said something about the cleanliness of the place. I just want to say that this is the cleanest house I have ever stayed in, and found that everything went above and beyond our expectations. This is a perfect mountain getaway, we all highly recommend it!!! (Our group ended up including 7 adults, 1 toddler, 1 infant, and we all loved it!).
