Spectacular House for Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

The house is very impressive - better than we expected from the online photos! It is in excellent condition with hardwood floors and carpets throughout - looks like new!

We had 10 family members in our party - 6 adults with 4 children ranging from 10 months to 14 years old. We all enjoyed the space and options available.

The main floor is spacious with the kitchen/dining area on one half and great room/gathering space on the other. Lots of room to spread out and gather.

The 2 bedrooms on the top floor are large and comfortable. One bedroom has 2 queen beds and was perfect for a family with small kids.

The basement bedrooms were also very comfortable. One with a double bed and bunk beds and the second with a queen bed. The basement also had its own sitting area.

There was no cell service which we knew going in. House phone worked for local calls and the wifi was generally good for most devices (there was some buffering delays on the TV which only worked through wifi).

We were there between Christmas and New Year and ended up with 2 days of solid rain and 35 degree weather! The heat kept us warm (after we figured out that all the thermostats had to be on for it to work) and the steep driveway was a bit slippery from the icy/slushy snow but generally OK.

We did have one major problem - a widespread loss of power at 9:30 pm one night that lasted about 24 hours. With no power, the house phone didn't work, the heat didn't work and we were in the dark except for our cell phone lights and the house's night lights. The house has an emergency generator but there were no instructions on how to use it and we decided not to try. Some advice in the guest book would have been helpful.

Given another opportunity, we would definitely consider renting this house again.

Great Place for a large family/group close to Mt Baker

  • 5 of 5

We spend 4 nights at the house with 3 families totaling 6 adults and 6 kids over Christmas. The house is fabulous and spacious. The kitchen is very well equipped in terms of cooking utensils, pots and pans, etc and easy to work in to prepare meals for the whole gang.

There was plenty of space to have everyone hang out in the upper two floors. As noted in other reviews, the access to the lower section is via an outside staircase. It is not really a hassle but with snow-covered steps does require putting on your shoes. The bunk room is in the lower space and the kids loved it.

The hot tub is fabulous - a newer one with all of the great jets and other features. There are multiple TVs with DVD players connected though we only used the large one in the main living room for the kids.

Since the cell coverage is non-existent in the neighborhood the Wi-Fi was essential. We were able to text and make calls after setting our phones up for Wi-Fi calling.

The location of the house is great - about as close to the mountain as you can get although it is still about a 30-40 min drive. The local pizza place and the general store are only about 1/4 mile away.

Perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house that was perfect for us. It was close to all of the things that we came to see. The one thing that some people might be bothered by was that it was only separated from the highway by a hedge. It didn't bother us. We enjoyed our stay and would come back if we are in the area.

Excellent home but one major disappointment

  • 4 of 5

We held our annual family reunion and the home was absolutely perfect. It was large, comfortable and very clean. No complaints. The major disappointment is that after all payments were made and personal travel plans finalized, only then did we receive the community rules which stated we could not use the swimming pool, tennis courts, etc. Knowing what amenities were in the gated community, and having read a previous renter's review about how enjoyable it was to have access to the pool, my grandchildren were particularly excited about swimming. Needless to say we had to improvise new activities during our stay. We should have been informed prior to our booking or it should be noted in the posting that community amenities are not included in the rental price. Apart from that the home was ideal and picking up keys, accessing the property, etc. went smoothly.
