"What an incredible experience. My wife and my two children (14 year old boy and 12 year old girl) and I had the absolute best time of our lives during our stay at this awesome Mountain View home!! The home itself is beautiful and the views....breathtaking!! Perched up on the top of a mountain, you are isolated from civilization while enjoying the downtime yet close enough to grab a bite to eat or do the touristy stuff a short drive down the road! Pam was awesome, easy to communicate with and gave us all kinds of ideas on things to do, she also has a large 3-ring binder in the home full of hiking trails, activities and tips and pointers for the home and the area that make everything so very easy. We were able to use the canoe that she has and the lake was gorgeous. I do recommend a stop at Lakes End Marina which is just down the street, they have great food, a cool atmosphere and we even rented a ski boat for a day and did some tubing and sightseeing around the lake. With so much to do in the general area of the home, there is fun for all ages, yet my favorite part was simply sitting on the massive back porch, enjoying the sights and sounds of this beatiful part of the country! The only recommendation I'd have for anyone is try and get there for the first time during the daylight hours, the road leading up to the house is a little gravel road, and neither the car GPS nor my iPhone GPS gave the correct route to the home, there are a few other homes on the mountain, and since we got there very late at night, it was extremely dark and we ended up driving up to a couple of other homes by mistake thinking their driveway was the road to this house, but it just made the adventure that much better!!! Haha. The roads and driveways are marked with signs, but in the dark, I must have missed them, my GPS kept saying to take a road called lake vista or something vista and just FYI, that is NOT the right road!!! I couldn't even make it up that road in my suv and turning around isn't the easiest thing in the world. But again, once I did it during the day, it's an fun road up and once you get there, ITS AMAZING!!!!
Book it now, you will not be disappointed!!!"
