Very Romantic & Relaxing Valentine Weekend!
February 18, 2014
Stayed 2 nights over Valentineâ€™s weekend. There was 12 inches of snow when we arrived. We found the drive up the mountain to be quite treacherous (even in 4x4), but a phone call to Vickie got the road plowed in several hours. So only a slight delay in our trip. (The town does not have T-mobile phone service, so the only place we could call from was McDonaldâ€™s using their wifi). Once we got to the house, we were AMAZED! Such a beautiful, romantic settingâ€¦and lovely furnishings. The pictures donâ€™t do the home justice. We loved the serenity and the privacy (2 other homes near this one, but due to the weather, we had the entire road to ourselves). We saw 3 deer crossing the road one evening. LOVED the push-button fireplace (gas logs) and the hot tub. Very romantic being in the hot tub surrounded by snow. Got up in the middle of the night with the outside lights on, and watched it snow for several hours! Peaceful and beautiful! The house had plenty of DVDâ€™s to watch and every amenity you could imagine! There is a house phone for local calling, but youâ€™re not able to make long distance calls. Thankfully the house had wifi so we could use our cell phones to make calls & to enjoy the internet. The only (small) complaint we had was that there were no wash clothes in the house (cleaning person mishap Iâ€™m sure), but we sufficed by using the hand towels. And I saved the very best for last. My boyfriend proposed to me as I was coming down the stairs on the last morning there. What wonderful, beautiful memories in such an awesome place! Couldnâ€™t have been more romantic!! I would highly recommend this place to anyone wanting a romantic getaway or a place just to relax and enjoy serenity and nature. We only used the upstairs bedroom, but the house also has 2 other bedrooms (one with bunk beds) and a pull out sofa. So itâ€™s large enough for a family of 8! Will definitely be back again!
