GREAT stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

For us, this was a perfect place for a quiet get away!! It was so nice to come to this house for a week and be able to go and just totally "turn off". If you are looking for a bit more adventurous trip, there were many areas around to ski, and during the warmer months I imagine this would be a great place to kayak and do other water activities. The house is very cozy and not far from a small downtown area with shopping, food, and some great coffee shops! Judy was very helpful during our trip, she contacted us prior to our arrival to give us some info about the house and area and made sure we could contact her incase we needed anything! Very kind and helpful. The lake was beautiful and totally frozen over, we saw people walking around on it, but didn't get to try ourselves. Overall, very beautiful area and home and would definitely recommend staying here!

Absolutely loved it!

We had an amazing weekend at the Mountain Home. The place is cosy, clean and has everything you need for a beautiful weekend with lots of outdoor activity. We did some nice hikes in the area but will definitely come back in warmer seasons to check out kayaks!! Definitely recommend staying here!

Wonderful Get-a-way!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was there to provide for a wonderful weekend. The home is lovely and so peaceful. You really feel like you get away from it all and it is only an hour away. The boys had a blast fishing and boating on the lake and barbecuing at night. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back.

I would definitely go back!

The house was great, comfortable and clean. Everything you could need was provided. It was so awesome that it was right on the lake. We went there for skiing but are now thinking about going back in the summer. We did not realize the 3rd bedroom was downstairs and thought there were only 2 until we found it, but my sons liked the room. I would recommend this property to everyone!

Family weekend

  • 4 of 5

We were glad to have a place to settle in for a winter weekend and really enjoyed the frozen lake for long walks with dog and fireplace. Wished we could have skated more but the snow was prohibitive and too heavy to clear much of a rink. Glad we brought extra firewood too - we gathered around the fireplace each of the three nights we were there. Kitchen is terrific and well equipped for preparing home-cooked meals and main floor spacious and accommodating for our group of 6 adults, a 2 year old and dog to hang out together and relax. We traveled into Warwick for an afternoon and enjoyed this village as well a lunch stop at Pennings Farm Pub & Grill - highly recommend this local unpretentious haunt that serves up wholesome food and craft beer/wine! Appreciate Judy's willingness to be accessible during our stay as questions arose.

Terrific Snuggling in the Cold!

  • 5 of 5

No skiing when it's -8 outside....guess we'll have to snuggle by the fireplace, admire the frozen lake out the picture window (when we're not playing in the snow), and cook huge pancake brunches. Oh well. Comfortable, clean, distinctive and a truly memorable long weekend.
