Wow, is all I can say. Staying at Kathy's little mountain paradise was more than anyone could ever expect. Anything a person could ever's there! I only wish we could have stayed longer. The furnishings and décor consisted on antiques and art. It was colorful, fun, and homey. No need to pack a whole lot of food, because her kitchen was fully stocked with any spice, condiment, or cooking utensils you'd ever need. She even had a wonderful herb garden, so if you want fresh herbs all you had to do was go down and snip a few plants. We will be staying there again!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Kathy was a fabulous host! We were welcomed with a warm fire burning and a very nice bottle of wine. We cooked, baked, hiked and bathed. We absolutely loved the house and all its charm.

Thank you again, Kathy!

5 star retreat with all the amenities and solitude of paradise in a peaceful forest setting

  • 5 of 5

I booked this place for a home base for a family reunion... I wasn't sure what to expect or if it would work for my older relatives. I was amazed. This perfect little patch of paradise in the middle of the forest far exceeded my expectations. Kathy was an amzing hostess. We started with a personalized welcome to the home, the house was immaculate and fully loaded with everything we could have possibly anticipated. Kathy communicated every day being sure we were well taken care of and answering any questions we may have had. The stress I had going into the weekend for the reunion disappeared the minute I arrived. Everyone loved the place and we had already decided to book again the following summer. It was not a hard decision and we were leaving the reunion already stress free for next year. Simply put, it was an amazing stay and I STRONGLY recommend this place to everyone.

Superb hospitality. The foresight and planning Kathy devotes to meeting visitor needs is amazing (she knew what we needed before we thought to look for it). We greatly enjoyed our woodland retreat and will recommend it to friends and family. THANK YOU!
