Serene and peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful and quiet location, great for walks and rejuvenating. Close enough to the ski hills and E-ville. Cozy fireplace and great room for our two families to spend time together. Note: you cannot get here without all-wheel drive in winter! Hosts were very gracious, accommodating and wanting us to enjoy our holiday. The only surprise was the layout of the beds. We were able to work around things, but might not work for all families. So ask for details before you book. We would love to return in the fall to see the leaves and play a round of golf!

Beautiful remote location. Great fall foilage. Great for a weekend away. Modern amenities for a home completely off the grid. Would love to go back.

Great off the grid experience!

  • 4 of 5

The home is truly off the grid, with beautiful scenery and location. The home is well maintained and will equipped. It proved to be a good place to escape with the family and disconnect! Perfect for 6-8…

Bring everything you need. It is secluded.

Living area is inviting and will set up. Kitchen serves the needs of a family.

Leave the electronics behind to enjoy family time.
