We had a group of friends and kids (16 in all) who all want to get together for a sort of reunion. The house was large and roomy with lots of light. The pool table and movie theater (big comfy chairs and giant screen) were great when it was raining or for helping to entertain the kids (and even us adults after the kids were in bed). There were plenty of rooms with comfortable king size beds for the adults (no one had to fight over a room or bed!) and the bunk beds were great for the kids. WiFi was a great welcomed feature. Something you wouldn't expect. The extra large dining table was awesome as we had many fun filled meals altogether at one table! Everything was very clean and felt like a real home. I can't wait to rent this place again in the winter and have fires going when coming back from skiing. Only down side will be BBQing in the cold, but hey I'm not the one out there lol. I don't understand the one review where they were disappointed. I didn't experience any of those issues at all. The owner was very accommodating with all my questions and emails. He was very efficient with sending the directions and "check-in" information as well as giving us tidbits on things to do up there. Thank you for a wonderful place to stay!
