The house could not have been more perfect for a serene, weekend getaway.
The opportunity to stay in a stranger's home and feel like it is your home of 20+ years is rare in my experience. Yet, this was the feeling my five friends and I had from the moment we set foot in the front door. Not only was the house incredibly accessible and easy to find for one so peacefully tucked away, it was also warm and under constant natural light that easily made its way inside. And while the property manager had to come and adjust furnace settings on the first night for some extra warmth, he did so immediately and with minimal disturbance. After each long day of skiing, all we wanted was to return to the confines of such a comfortable setting. A fully stocked kitchen and open floor plan made cooking and sharing meals doubly enjoyable. With three queen beds and a nicely furnished living room, at no point did any one of us feel uncomfortable or like we were lacking privacy. I sincerely look forward to the opportunity to stay in this house again in the future and know it will be possible given how welcoming and responsive the owner was. Wouldn't stay anywhere else!
