Fantastic place. We were there in a snow storm so had some internet and snow plowing issues, but no better place to be under "house arrest" :-)

My lifelong friend and I came back to Welches after a wonderful visit last year. We wanted a home with brighter lighting since our eyesight needs a little help. This home is perfect! There was nothing missing but measuring spoons and that is amazing. Every room gave beautiful views of the outdoors and most a view of the soothing sound of the river. Loved the kitchen plus it’s windows picture frame the river; that made me not mind being in the kitchen. Love this home away from home.

This house was fantastic! So many windows and door leading to the outside. Fully fence yard for the dogs and if you had kids that would be a huge plus. We enjoyed the river noise and view from both the living space and the kitchen. Nothing to complain about. We did have a hard tim getting into the house, the code did not work but we got in through a different lock box and when my cell service drop the call and they didn’t know if we got in. They came out to the house to make sure we got in. Top notch service. We will definitely be back!

This house seemed great upon arrival. Beautiful view, well appointed kitchen, nice furniture, quite clean. Everything was going well until there was a power outage. The house only had a couple of LED candles that were battery operated. They provided little to no light. Additionally, there were no batteries, not flashlights, the provided wood for the fireplace was damp and wouldn't light, no WIFI, no cell service and no landline. It was cold and after 3 hours we decided to head home. The master bed's mattress is in desperate need of replacement.
Manager response:
Alan, thank you for your review. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed the beautiful view this home has to offer. We sincerely apologize for the power outage you experienced during your time with us. Power outages are a common occurrence in the mountains and this outage lasted no longer than 4 hours. We apologize for the inconvenience. Our local manager has added more nightlights that will work as flashlights during a power outage. Due to the remote location of this property, cell service can be spotty in this area and Wi-Fi does not work without power. The owners leave enough wood in the home for one fire and there is extra wood outside. We recommend purchasing extra wood at the grocery store if you plan to use the fireplace multiple times throughout your stay. Again, we sincerely apologize for the inconveniences caused by the power outage. We hope to have the opportunity to host you again in the future

The location was easy to find and close to amenities. The entry instructions were clear and easy to follow. The home overlooked the salmon river which was beautiful and the sound of the river relaxing. There were plenty of linens, blankets, towels and the kitchen was well stocked. The TV was a little difficult to manage and the remotes were somewhat mismatched. There could have been more dish soap and paper towels and wood for the fireplace, but overall, I would definitely rent this home again.
Manager response:
Christine, thank you so much for your feedback and we are so pleased you enjoyed our property! We will add instructions on how to use the TV on our guest check-in instructions. We do provide starter packs of paper products and detergents, and anything required beyond this is the responsibility of the guest. Thank you for helping us make our homes the best they can be!

We had a great view of Salmon Creek, which is about 50 feet wide, always flowing. The house was very clean. We’ve recommended it to our friends on our Saturday evening Zoom cocktail hour.
Leticia W. Nov 2020
This house is as beautiful as described! Wonderful spacious master bedroom and amazing jetted bathtub perfect for relaxing. The kitchen is large and stocked with all of the supplies you need to make great meals. Everything was exceptionally clean as well. Although close to other homes it is very quiet and private. This was my second time here in 2020 and we will be back!
Daniel B. Nov 2020
My family and I enjoyed the nearby trails and even had a great pumpkin Halloween walk where my 3 year old was able to locate candy. This for us was a covid friendly alternative to trick-or-treating. Nice house enjoyed the stay.
Manager response:
Hi Daniel! Thank you for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your Halloween with us, and enjoyed the home. We hope to host you again soon!

Clean and comfortable home. Met all our expectations.
Shirley D. Aug 2020
Beautiful home gave us a most relaxing escape from the city! Well equipped with most everything we needed from cooking to enjoying time outside sipping our coffee. Clean and it felt like home away from home! The only thing that we wish we had would be the ability to check out a little later than 10am. That was rough. Other than that, it was an amazing stay!
Manager response:
We are so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay, Shirley! We are sorry that the 10 AM checkout time came a bit early for you. This is a temporary checkout time during the Coronavirus to allow for our housekeeping staff to have ample time for cleaning and disinfecting the homes in between guests. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and we hope to host you again soon!

This was the perfect home for a weekend getaway to the mountains. The kitchen is well stocked with all the tools and gadgets you'd could ever need. We loved the many windows and sliding glass doors which allowed you to fully enjoy the sites and sounds of the Salmon River. Plenty of firewood for the fireplaces which was a nice surprise. We found the home to be clean and comfortable. The pupper came along so the fenced yard was awesome. I highly recommend to others and plan to rent again soon.
Jessica W. Jul 2020

Rey C. Jun 2020
First of all the home met beyond my expectations. It made me feel so comftorable and like i was truly in my own home. It was clean, spacious, peaceful, great ameneties and offered privacy. My family enjoyed it so much they wanted to stay longer that even i myself had second thoughts about leaving. This place is an absolutely perfect place to have a retreat with loved ones or just take some time away alone from the city to relax from your everyday fast life like such as myself who fell in love with this beautiful home.
Karen E. Jun 2020
We had an amazing week at this home on the river. The house is amazing! Our kids couldn’t stop saying how much they loved it. It has all of the amenities you need, great fenced in patio and side property that worked perfect for our dog, and a great fire pit right on the river. Great place for bird watchers. We saw deer walking across the river and a bald eagle flying up and down the river, as well as many other birds. WiFi was great and allowed me to work a bit, though treat yourself and take the time for vacation.
Kyle D. Jun 2020
Beautiful, very functional house that comes with the sound of the salmon river flowing all day.
Richard M. Jun 2020
This property is absolutely amazing, with the Salmon River right out your back door. You can sleep with the windows open for a cool night with the river being easily heard from the house. Wide open living space is great for those with kids or dogs, as is the chain link fence in the back. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for the perfect mountain getaway, you will not be disappointed.
Kelly S. May 2020
I absolutely loved my stay here. Quiet, cozy, comfortable, and clean. The place was well stocked with everything we needed. Super convenient location with grocery and restaurants just being minutes away but far enough away that you feel like you are deep in the woods. All kinds of hiking nearby and ski areas are super close. The patio outback has a beautiful view and was an excellent place for our evening cocktails. I definitely will be back!
