"This was our 2nd time we have stayed at la montana and this time was just as great. The kids were able to mountain bike within 5 minutes and we liked the access to the fresh produce stands. The little ones enjoyed the beach at the nearby lake. With the gazebo there was peace when needed. . We will go back in the future. ."

"Our family vacation (with two parents, one 8 year old boy, one dog) was such a raving success that the biggest downside was witnessing our usually stalwart son's tears at the very end of our stay. In a word, the place is peace. There's so MUCH property (hard to even compute for any fellow New Yorkers, but let me try with "there are avenues and avenues of property") a dog can safely run and run all day without you worrying about the street. Our son swam, canoed in the world's safest pond, spotted fish, a (barn?) owl, deer, and many a bold Bluejay. We slept like rocks. The TV was exactly what parents want from a family vacation—a fine collection of family DVDs (we all loved "School of Rock") but nothing so jaw-dropping it's luring your children away from nature. There's two bedrooms upstairs, but it would be easy to toss some kiddos in the spacious downstairs living rooms (there's 2) and gift the upstairs to adults only. The pool is perfection, next to what looks like the remains of a 1800s-era (?) stone basement. It's just beyond idyllic. You'll drive away kicking yourself for not exploring the apple orchard in more detail—that's the kind of post-vacation problem you'll have.
One important note on the kitchen, as I'd seen a previous reviewer make somewhat negative comments—the kitchen (and more importantly the BBQ) are great. Is there a Viking stove? No. Would you WANT a Viking stove in a summer house? Hope not! Inside there's a perfectly functioning kitchen and we used it during the one cold evening to make a delicious dinner. I was delighted to poke around the cabinets and find an immersion blender, a Cuisinart, good knives, and even a salad spinner. However the real thrill is in cooking outside. Clearly the owner loves barbecue, because the grill is fantastic, complete with multiple chimneys and a smoker. All forms of grill equipment are there, from skewers to tongs, and your best meals will be out on the deck, overlooking over the water.
Funniest moment: our 1 year old labrador mix encountering her very first deer
Favorite moment: spending every evening from 5-8 out on the dock as a family, watching the nature without our son ever once asking if he could "go turn on the TV""

"Rented this house with a large group of friends over Memorial Day Weekend and had an amazing time! The house was truly everything we hoped for. There were 14 of us and there was plenty of space for everyone. There was always something to do whether it was hiking, hanging out at the river close by, chilling in the hot tub, playing games in the basement, roasting marshmallows over the fire pit, etc. I cannot even begin to fully convey all of the fun that we had. Would definitely recommend this house to anyone who wants to relax or have an adventure. It has the best of everything you could want and the owner was extremely helpful and available to answer any questions."
