2nd stay

5 of 5
Well this was our second year and the house was just as nice as last year. We are 8 adults and 4 children and while the adults were watching tv and relaxing upstairs the kids were downstairs playing wii I would reccomend this house to anyone clean and cozy!!!! Waking up to the mountain views and then the watching the sun go down was just sooo nice!!!! Rich is a pleasure to deal with and very easy to reach at any time. So if you are thinking you want to rent this house dont just rent it!!! My group just loves it!! Thanks Again Rich!!!!
