The townhouse was quite large and spacious. As some others have commented, this listing could use some updating-some windows wouldn't open, some wouldn't shut, the carpet was stained, and the kitchen light fixtures had an abundance of dead insects stuck in them. Overall though, this listing was a decent price for the weekend. We were all amazed at how well the heating system worked. We only left it in for a few hours when we arrived, and after turning it off we stayed almost too warm the entire weekend. The kitchen was well stocked with cooking utensils, and the wifi was fast and reliable. Netflix was also available.
House super roomy for a large family. House needs some updates, particularly the kitchen. Carpet is old, and walls need some paint work, but house was clean and heat worked good for February in Cloudcroft. We had a great visit and would definitely come back. With a little work, this could easily be a 5-Star place, especially with the awesome location and quiet neighborhood.
This was our second year staying at this property for our annual trip to Cloudcroft! We love the layout of the house as it works perfectly for our group of friends and the kids! Look forward to coming back next year!
Our stay was comfy and cozy. The cabin is cute. Was looking forward to a hot bath in the jet tub but unfortunately it didn't work.
We had a great stay in Cloudcroft. The townhouse was very homey and comfortable and we would definitely stay at this location again.
Our small group had a great time this weekend at the cabin. There were a few minor hiccups along the way but Aubrey was great in quickly responding to our text to help us out!!
