Awesome house with great views! Lots of hiking, swimming & running/walking opportunities. A great getaway place! Very cozy!
This house has everything!! Screened porch, decks, great kitchen ( we cooked two incredible meals and ate on the deck overlooking the mountains) amazing views from every room, plenty of space to stretch out and read, play games, or nap, challenging , fun, hiking right out the front door (wild azaleas and dogwoods were incredible), kayaking all over the 2.8 mile perimeter lake, seeing geese, beaver, fish...just wish we had had time for tennis and swimming...
I arrived in a tizzy, totally stressed out and left there totally at peace with the world! It was a fantastic get away with spectacular scenery, hiking trails, friendly neighbors, and beautiful facilities. I would definitely recommend it for anyone of any age for any occasion. I hope to return there sometime.
The most relaxing and welcoming home overlooking the - hands down - most beautiful view I have ever seen. No matter the weather, the view is glorious. The bedrooms are lovely, private and feel just like home. The great room and kitchen are, somehow, cozy and grand at the same time. One of the neatest things was reading the heartfelt notes and sincere messages of thanks of previous guests in the little guest book near the dining table. It was obvious that we weren't the only ones who made wonderful memories there.
We stayed at Dramatic Mountain View for a girls weekend and had a superb visit. When we arrived we were all impressed by the view of the mountainside off the back porch. Later in the evening we had a delicious grilled supper on that same screened in porch. With no threat of mosquitos, a large outdoor dining table, and even candles we were all set. So enjoyable!
The kitchen was large and well equipped, lacking nothing. It was open to the rest of the living area which made for good visiting while preparing meals.
The living area was comfortable and nicely equipped with a stereo system, etc. We had more than enough seating for our group to sit together and visit.
We didn't fuss over who would get which bedroom because they were all very comfortable with adequate space, etc. And the linens were soft!
The bathrooms were large and clean and the washer/dryer came in handy after some of our outings in the summer heat.
The lake in this beautiful private neighborhood is also a huge asset. Our group spent hours on the dock enjoying the beauty, the sun, lots of swimming and a bottle of wine!
