Relaxing weekend in the mountains! 'We were excited to get away with family and friends for a long weekend, and this was the perfect spot! Upon driving up to the house, we were struck by its expansive rocking chair porches and gorgeous natural environment. Inside, the house was spacious, extremely clean, well-equipped, and overall very comfortable for our 2 families. The owners have thought of EVERYTHING--from board games and Pop-A-Shot (which was my husband's obsession for the weekend!) to clean, high quality linens and bedding. We stayed downstairs, where it was so peaceful--at night, our favorite part was to open up the windows and fall asleep to the sounds of the mountains at night. During the day, we loved having a cup of coffee or cold beer on the screened porch and just enjoying the breeze and company!'
