Why Ed Smetak chose Whispering Forest

A beautiful place to get away from the hustle and bustle of a big city. Crisp mountain air, lots of stars, skiing in the winter and fishing in the summer.

What makes this house unique

38 foot ceiling in the main living room with sky lights. There is a lot of inside space that make the property feel grand. The house sits on a slope which allows for magnificent views and complete privacy due to many evergreens strategically placed around the property.

Great house and location !

Our family had a wonderful time 😍

My only advice would be to make sure you wear your house shoes going down stairs in the house since carpet is slippery. Awesome house and would definitely stay here again!
