The house is extremely spacious, with magnificent views of the lake and the mountain.It is such a peaceful getaway, where you literally feel like you are one with nature.The stay in helper made us feel like royalty, we didn't have to do any chores at all! A true piece of heaven - we loved it and will definitely be back!!!Thanks also to Lynda for communicating very efficiently from the day of booking to arrival time.The plans for a pool would be a wonderful addition!Thanks again!
