The living room has clean luxurious and comfortable natural leather sofas, a reading library, and both internet and cable. The kitchen has double ovens, convection microwave, dishwasher, and culinary essentials.
We looked for quite some time to find a single level (no stairs to contend with in the snow), 4 bedroom home with two master suites that would provide comfort and privacy when vacationing with our friends. The privacy of each room and layout is ideal.
