Guestbook comments from the manager

Great home with lots of space and backyard. I recommend this for anyone with a big group or family reunion getaway. Check in and check out were simple and the renters were easy to contact, answered every text or calls within minutes.

Brownie Combo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in these units for the 4th of July. Nicely furnished, convenient to restaurants, village and lake. Decided to stay in due to the holiday crowds on the 4th and we could see the fireworks from the backyard. We will stay here again clean and updated. Easily fit our group of 12.

Brownie Combo (both units)

  • 5 of 5

We rented both units and had a great time. Nicely furnished units close to Snow Summit and you can walk out the back gate to restaurants. We had had grandparents and adults in one unit and 20 year olds in the other. Large enough to have all guests in one unit for meals. We will return with the entire family and if the group is smaller we will rent just one side. Highly recommend.
