Perfect Weekend Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely LOVED our stay this past weekend. The house is cozy, making it perfect for sitting by the fire and watching the deer on the property. Its proximity to Big Boulder was ideal for our ski trip. Paul and Amy were very accomodating during the blizzard of 2016 and we thank them for that!
