Property itself is all clean, with everything you need for two. It might get cold (if you are like us), but there's electric fireplace or extra blankets in case you need them - they will do the job - in the end, we stayed in middle of the winter...tv, a lot of books, dvd's, cd's, as well as good wifi, will keep you busy in case you stuck because of the weather. Would definitely recommend. Thank you Joan and Dennis :)
