Quiet neighborhood. Very common to see deer and other wildlife walking through the woods surrounding the house.
This home is 1.8 miles door to door to the ski lodge. Recommend 4WD if there has been recent snow. The roads are plowed by the resort, but due to some of the hilly terrain in the area, 4WD can be handy. Home is approximately 4.5 miles to Lake Laura.
There is a grocery store (Food Lion) in Mt. Jackson by Interstate 81, which is about 15-20min from the resort. Once in Basye, there is local convenience store/gas station that has a small selection of a bit of everything (basic grocery items, drinks, frozen pizzas, toiletries, etc). The resort has a restaurant in the Lodge and there is another diner style restaurant, the Hot Plate, on the right when you pass the convenience store on your way towards Orkney Springs.
Other Things to Note:
Parking - Gravel circular driveway at the house. 3-4 cars can fit without a problem.
No smoking inside the house, no outdoor fires are allowed per resort policy and wooded nature of the resort, no parties. Must be 21+ to rent.
Washer/dryer is located in the main house off of one of the bedrooms.

Last minute spring break trip
Sara was very responsive from the start to the end of our trip, instructions with all the details you would need were provided. Cozy atmosphere.
I took my son and his friends here for his 12th birthday to go snow tubing. The house was beautiful and warmly decorated for the holidays! It was very clean, and well stocked with paper products, sheets, towels, blankets, etc. The boys LOVED the basement with the XBOX, air hockey table, board games, and a surprise hidden closet bed, perfect for hide and seek. The drive to the house was a little scary in the snow. The roads are very narrow and winding. I was glad I had an SUV. But it was well worth the drive.
Nice home away from home, is an excellent golf/ski getaway.
New carpet, 5 TVs, separate game room in lower level.
We really enjoyed our brief stay at Lark's Nest and are already looking at a possible longer visit with more family sometime in the future. Two very minor issues that didn't detract from the visit at all: because we were there on an unusually cool summer weekend, we would have like to light the gas stove but couldn't get it to light. Maybe not yet activated for the season? We also couldn't get the ceiling fan remote to work, not that we needed it. Again, neither detracted from the stay. Beds were comfortable and we had a good time with the air hockey game, even though no one stayed in the basement level! Very peaceful and serene.
Hi Linda! So glad you enjoyed the stay! You mentioned a couple things that you had a hard time with, so I wanted to make sure you were good to go for future stays. The fan's wall switch (top of the stairs) has to be switched to "on" for the remote to then be able to control it. Sorry you had a hard time with the fireplace! It is all ready to go. Wish you would have called and we could have walked you through it (the instructions are out there).
Look forward to having you out to stay again!
Truly exceeds expectation !
This was such a treat! The owners of this property made out stay so effortless. They have towels linens pillow and plenty of sleeping room. The house is perfect for a quick getaway. Our guests were very comfortable with their sleeping arrangements. The kitchen is fully stocked and there's plenty paper towels and toilet paper. Buy a bag of ice 10 minutes from the ski resort which is 8 minute from the house. They have filtered water from the fridge.
All the comforts of home
The property was fantastic! We had a total of 8 adults and we all fit comfortably. The pictures do not do the house justice. The basement has a great space for hanging out. Our group had a wonderful weekend and we cannot wait to do it again. The whole process was super easy!
