Perfect Family Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

Such a beautiful home!! We have six kids in my family and thanks to his spacious this home is, we had a perfect family Thanksgiving. The wood burning fireplace kept us warm, the kitchen was incredible. There were enough bedrooms to accommodate us all. Never once felt on top of each other! The property is incredible in and of itself. We talk all the time about coming back to this home, thank you for sharing it!

Spacious, comfortable and well-equipped for everyone's activities!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and appreciated all the amenities of this lovely home. We did not hike outside on the property as it was too cold, but we did use the outside fire pit for a hot dog and marshmallow roast, which all the kids loved. The beds were all comfortable and the kitchen well-equipped for our needs (we did a lot of cooking). The only suggestion I have is for a larger dining room table. With five bedrooms, if all are full, the dining room table for 6 is too small, and even though there are stools along the bar, it is nice to have everyone seated together for meals. We did not have an opportunity to use the Owner's Club but looked at it and would try to utilize it on another visit. Great pool and game room for families!

Beautiful Home; gorgeous living room

  • 5 of 5

This was a beautiful, well kept property in the Galena Territories. My extended family spent the Christmas holiday at the King House. It was a total of 11 people with a room to spare! We enjoyed movies by the fireplace and each room was very spacious for every family to stay in!

My parents loved the area and the property with vaulted living room ceilings, huge master bedroom and a great view from the balcony. I would highly recommend, Anna (property owner) was very responsive and incredibly helpful during our stay when I would call/email her with any questions.

This is a 5 star property and I will visit it again!

Spacious, clean vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful! With 5 bedrooms plus a bonus den/bedroom there is plenty of room for everyone. The large kitchen is open to the gathering area so there is plenty of room to hang out with a large group. We were a group of 10 woman and we had more than enough room for all of us (including bathrooms) :) This home is also very clean and in great working order. I would highly recommend it.

This home is amazing! Beautifully done, lots of custom upgrades, very clean, and plenty of room.

  • 5 of 5

This home is deep into the Galena Territories. The property is wooded and private. The home is beautifully done, and has a woodsy feel. There is plenty of seating to enjoy time with friends or family. We rented the home as a group of 5 girls for a Girls' Weekend, and had a great time. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes and cookware, the home is comfortable, and the atmosphere welcoming. I recommend this home!

Huge private and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing and so spacious! The owner was very responsive and friendly. It was stocked with everything we needed. Beds were great with lots of linens and towels to use. The study on groundfloor had extra bunk beds and room for an extra bed with a door to close and access to 1/2 bath. The setting is beautifully landscaped and private. We enjoyed the fire pit and balcony. Probably the nicest rental ever!!! Too little time and lots to see. We had a wedding and lots of family/All were impressed! Thanks Anna from Texas
