I sat in a deluxe 103° jaccuzi outside my private suite, in a snowstorm. The wifi was robust. Scott and Belinda are top notch people.
This is definitely the most beautiful rental property that we have ever stayed at. Wow!! Our family of six rented this house for our niece’s wedding at The Corner Barn in Graeagle and it was perfect. We wish we could have spent more than three nights.
Scott and Belinda were wonderful hosts and made us feel at home right away. They had every detail covered for our every need and gave recommendations on things to do, places to visit, eat, etc. which was fabulous because we were new to the area. Graeagle and the surrounding area has lots to offer.
We loved the gorgeous house and the beautiful “dream” kitchen with all the amenities. The living space was huge, with great bedrooms, bathrooms and closet space. The rec room was amazing with everything we could ask for and more – pool table, foosball, ping pong board games, exercise equipment, etc. They have thought of everything - right down to all the fixings for s’mores for the fire pit. We also enjoyed taking walks in the neighborhood and by the creek.
We highly recommend this beautiful home and wish we could have spent more time enjoying all the wonderfulness of this place. Can’t wait to return!
We rented this property to accommodate our large family for our daughter's wedding that was held in Graeagle. This home was perfect! It was so comfortable and spacious and allowed us the time needed for visiting with our relatives. We held the rehearsal dinner here and the outside deck was stunning! The owners of this property were the most gracious hosts. We came home from the wedding rehearsal and they had set up all the tables on the outside deck for us. They would tend to our needs while also giving us the space we needed. With so many details in planning a wedding, what a relief knowing we had a great place to stay. I highly recommend staying at this gorgeous home!
We frequently stay in Graeagle at one of the local hotels. This time we had friends with us and so we opted for something different. At first I was apprehensive at the idea of the owners being onsite, however Scott and Belinda are wonderful hosts. They have a beautiful home and at no point did you feel like you were intruding on them. The property is spectacular. The grounds were well kept and the gardens tastefully designed. It was a wonderfully relaxing weekend! What a great experience!
We stayed with another golf loving couple for six nights. The place is very spacious. The owners are very hospitable. We felt quite comfortable using the owners kitchen area when needed. It was too hot this time to make use of the hot tub and firepit. Maybe next year!
This would be a great place for kids with the pool table, ping pong and foosball table. There are two sleeper sofas plus mats for younger ones to sleep.
Our stay was delightful and Scott and his wife were great hosts! They greeted us when we arrived and gave us a full tour of their property. Great house for many guests that are attending a wedding at the barn. We had 7 guests and there could have been 14 if needed sleeping comfortably.
Highly recommend this house to anyone staying the in the greyeagle area.
Oh and the house had a creek in walking distance on their property with a hot tub too!
