"This was a winter ski trip and I was looking for a house that could hold three families comfortably. Problem solved - Dan & Gretchen's house was very big and roomy, with lots of open space for the adults and kids. I've rented homes in the past, where the photos didn't match reality. In this case it's true but that's because the house EXCEEDS the photos in every way, which is hard to believe but is true! This house is gorgeous, well appointed, and warm & cozy! There is a wonderful family room with a gas fireplace which makes it easy to hang out by the fire. The kitchen area has top of the line appliances and plenty of space, which was great because we were cooking up a storm after skiing. I loved the long dining room table that enabled all of us to sit comfortably.
The bedrooms and bathrooms were all top notch like a 4 star hotel. We had a "no electronics" rule which worked out great, because of the ping pong table, pool table, dart board, and many games in the home. Kids never even looked at their phones!
The views from the house over the lake are beautiful, and even in the cold weather we hung outside by the outdoor fireplace (huddled under some blankets).
Gretchen and Dan were gracious, kind, and always ready to lend advice or help (like when Dan towed me out of a snowbank). They even escorted my wife on a beautiful nature hike - talk about concierge service!!
Thanks Dan & Gretchen for sharing you lovely home!!"
