Loved every minute

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, there was a fire going in the fireplace to welcome us. The fall color seem to be at its peak and the temperature in the low 70's was just perfect. Attention to detail and the perfect setting make this a little slice of heaven. Our family has been coming here for seven years in a row and we always look forward to our visit!

Totally disappointed. Mice scurrying all night. No wifi. No cell signal. No table to sit and have dinner. Way overpriced!

So much fun and awesome that we could take the dogs!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views and such a relaxing time. Only concern would be for families with young kids. Second bedroom is separate and you have to go outside to get to it and master is accessible by steep spiral staircase. Neither affected us as our daughter is older, but would be of concern with younger kids. Being able to take our dogs along was a big factor for us and made us really enjoy this place even more. Cell service and wifi very limited. Driving to this property was part of the fun due to passing by the horses and/or cows each time. Horseback riding right at the ranch was great and hiking trails withing walking distance was nice too. Be aware that many of the restaurants in town close early (8:00). Overall great time for sure!

My family and I had a great time. Views are beautiful. House stocked with all kitchen necessities. Comfortable sleeping spaces. We ate all meals outside on deck. Built outside fire in pit and roasted marshmallows!! Great hiking!!

Penny and Ernie are great people and wonderful hosts. They went the extra mile even to the point in coming to find me when I got lost hiking. Loved the cool weather. Will go back. Rollie & Lugene. S.C.
