Beautiful and peaceful
We absolutely love this place. Can't wait to come back.
A little piece of heaven
I can’t even begin to explain how peaceful and relaxing our time at Hidden Springs was. We were greeted by the kindest owners, Dorothy and Bill who went above and beyond to make sure we had a nice stay. Little thoughtful touches such as a welcome basket and fresh flowers. The property is spectacular. Surrounded by trees. Very private. The private deck looks on to the forest. My husband especially loved the outdoor shower. He showered several times a day because it was so “refreshing”. Everything you could possibly need in the kitchen. And the bed was also extremely comfortable. It was easy to get a good nights rest. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a relaxing get away
Peace, tranquility, comfort, and all in a beautiful verdant setting. Dorothy and Bill made us very welcome and we would recommend them to all. We definitely would stay again in their most well-equipped, clean and tidy property. So nice to have humming birds as visitors!
Charming, bright and accommodating
We loved spending five nights at this beautiful cottage. The outdoor deck was a perfect nest in the trees. Our hosts did everything possible to insure our comfort.
A Magical Place
From the minute we drove through the gate, we knew we were in a very special place. The lake, the gardens and the amazing carriage house were all just beautiful.
We found everything we could possibly need in the well appointed kitchen and then off to the serene deck complete with plaid fleece throws and twinkling lights.
It’s a great jumping off point for hiking in the mountains, the beach and shopping in the cute little towns.
We just loved every minute of our 5 days and hope to return.
Thank you Dorothy and Bill for the amazing place to rest and renew.
Raising the bar for VRBO stays
What more can be said? Having spent five nights at Hidden Springs, I fully concur with the flood of 5 star reviews. Terrific location, natural setting and value. This carriage house is not your typical VRBO property. Ceramic dishes, heavy flatware, premium bathroom pieces and fixtures; all of those daily interfaces that can make or frustrate a stay have been thought through and enhanced. Bill's woodworking skills are awe-inspiring. The one item that left me smiling: the dimmer switch for the bathroom lights. Thanks and appreciation to Dorothy and Bill.
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this lovely review and for mentioning some of the things you personally enjoyed. It is always so nice to hear what our guests appreciate. Thanks for visiting, it was a pleasure to have you stay!
