As of June, 2017: The entire road has been paved, making it much easier to access. Prior to this, it was a gravel road and difficult to access without 4WD/AWD. The incline is steep between the switchbacks, so low horsepower vehicles (small 4 cylinder cars) or vehicles with no weight on the drive wheels (pickup trucks) may still have difficulty getting to the house, although we haven't had any reported issues from guests as of May 2018. During winter months, especially if it snows, you will still need 4WD/AWD, as you still need to drive up to the top of the mountain. If weather is of concern, please purchase trip insurance. We do not refund due to bad weather or difficulty getting up the road to the house.
