Views: The views from the two wrap-around decks are fabulous. The decks are situated in a way to provide stunning sunsets with the North Mountain as the backdrop. Feel free to use the telescope (3 inch Bushnell Newtonian) to view the stars against the black background of space. Or gain a close-up of North Mountain. Scenic drives are fun along the country roads within the Valley. Check all the Winter offers available at Wonderful picture perfect views of the Snow and winter scenes from either balcony.
