The little stone house is absolutely beautiful. We booked the stay for 4 adults and 2 young children and it was perfect for our group. Nancy, the owner, was incredibly attentive and helpful and responsive before our stay to ensure that we had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves. When we arrived, the house had everything we could possibly need - games for children and adults alike, plenty of books, washing supplies etc etc. She had thought of every little detail.
The house is in a little area called elks point. It has a wonderful history and ethos. There is a wonderful walk up round mound which was surprisingly strenuous with little ones but well worth it for the great views. There is also a beautiful beach within 5 minutes walk from the house.
We visited during the winter and used the house as a base from which to ski. It is very close to the heavenly gondola (10 minutes). But it is also very convenient for the skiing at kirkwood and northstar. We visited both. Nancy has also stocked the house with snow shoes and sleds. Kayaks are there for the summer.
All in all this is a wonderful house, in a brilliant location with an absolutely delightful owner.
