Incredible 80th Birthday Celebration

  • 5 of 5

Our parents turned 80 this year and we wanted to gather for a family celebration. The house was great as there was plenty of room for everyone. The fire pit was perfect for evening s'mores and the large dining table accommodated our group comfortably. Sharon was very responsive from the moment we thought about renting in the area. I only wish we stayed longer.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

Once again we had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and is the perfect fit for our girls weekend. The kitchen has everything we need to prepare our meals. Beautiful view off the deck and we enjoyed the fire pit area. We plan to come back again next year.

A Rare Find

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the house itself is remarkable. Every room is tastefully decorated with a mountain cabin motif, from the furniture to the light fixtures to even the hand towels, creating a sense of rustic elegance. But without a doubt, the highlight of Rustic Ridge is the large, airy living room with its floor to ceiling windows featuring an amazing view of the mountains that goes on as far as the eyes can see. That view never got old. The spacious home comfortably accommodated my family with plenty of room and coziness for everyone! Rustic Ridge is satisfactory in every way for anything from a weekend getaway to a family/friends gathering. Moreover, Shari was a pleasure to work with, and I would definitely rent Rustic Ridge again in a heartbeat.

Great escape!

  • 5 of 5

We chose this home to house many guests rather than for everyone to get separate hotel rooms. To say the home is Beautiful is an understatement! Beautiful custom wood work, open floor plan, and plenty of room for visiting or enjoying the spectacular view! Would definitely stay again

Best House Yet!

  • 5 of 5

Our family..14 in all..has been renting homes for our annual reunion for the past eight years now. Rustic Ridge was the best choice so far. Everyone agreed on that. We had plenty of room for seven adults and seven kids. And the house has everything..all the supplies, all the cooking utensils, all the silverware, all the plates, get the idea. They even had long forks for roasting marshmallows at the firepit. And the seeting is wonderful..beautiful views and fresh air. We had a great time.

Fantastic Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful, relaxing week long stay at Rustic Ridge. From start to finish, everything about renting at this location was easy. Shari responded quickly to all our questions. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The property itself is truly spectacular. There was plenty of space for the twelve members of our group and we used every part of the house during our stay. We enjoyed that the house had an open layout, yet had enough space for privacy. All the bedrooms were quite comfortable. The living room area, recreation room, and loft lounge area were really comfortable as well. The dining area table for twelve was a definite plus for our group. The view out the living room/dining area floor to ceiling windows was spectacular. We thoroughly enjoyed gathering to capture the sunsets throughout the week. We made great use of the kitchen and utilized all three refrigerators in the house. With such a large group, the fact that we had access to two ovens proved to be a really big help. The spacious deck with its beautiful mountain views and plenty of seating in addition to the outdoor fire pit were real bonuses for our group. The location of the house is great...we took advantage of visiting Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater and Kentuck Knob (really not to be missed if you have the time to visit these sites during your stay...just 30 minutes to get to Fallingwater, 10 minutes further to get to Kentuck Knob). We also enjoyed a great lunch out at the Out of the Fire Cafe. This group of college friends has been getting together for 35 years now, renting properties all along the east coast, and all the members of the group agree that this is the best property we have ever rented. You can't go wrong renting this property, no matter the time of year you are looking to rent.
