"We traveled as a group of 10 with my husband's two siblings and families. The house is gorgeous, very nicely furnished, and the views are fantastic. The house was very clean upon arrival, and since we had a toddler and a pre-schooler along, the easily found child gates, crib, and bed rails were all appreciated. We had a few minor things happen (a too cold fridge, a too hot hot-tub) that we could work around, but wanted to let the owner know were going on, and he not only answered his phone right away, but had a repairman out the same day. Again, we weren't unhappy, but wanted to give him a "head's up" and he still was quick to respond.
The bedrooms are spacious and sleep plenty, but do be aware that there isn't much quiet space. We are all pretty much night owls, so it was OK, but the master bedroom opens into the kitchen, where we all gathered. The loft (with 4 double beds, a couple of sofas, and its own 3/4 bath) has no door, of course, to the family room, and the second king bedroom is directly under the kitchen, so the people who slept there noted some noise with the dishwasher running overnight. The two queen rooms offer the most quiet for those who head to bed early or get up later. For our group who wanted to gather and chat as much as possible, this wasn't a huge issue, but if you have light sleepers or more of a variety of bedtimes, bring earplugs. ;)
The location is excellent, and we really loved the property. While being 2 minutes from groceries and 5 minutes from town, we had a deer visit the yard most of the mornings. Amazing!"
