The home is absolutely beautiful and has an amazing view. One of the most comfortable places we have ever stayed. We wish we could have just stayed there the entire time!! We can't wait to go back! The only catch is the road to the house is a bit rough so I would not suggest during bad weather.

The house was immaculate, pictures truly don't do it justice. Everything was clean and we'll laid out, the kitchen was wonderfully equipped and the bedrooms/beds are super comfortable with amazing views.
We've been going to the area for a few years now and have never stayed somewhere with such a breath taking view.

The gravel road on the way up gets a bit steep but we managed just fine in a Honda fit, so pretty much every car should be able to make it. We got there in the dark the first night and it took a bit to find the place, just go slow and it will be alright!

We will definitely be back!!
