Family Christmas Vacation 2016
We had a blast and this home is beautiful! Our family of 8 (6 kids, 2 adults) were well accommodated in all the spacious rooms, 4 full bathrooms and comfort of this beautiful mountain retreat. The property caretakers were very considerate of ensuring we had everything we need and checking on the washing machine within a few hours of us noticing a small leak (which was repaired the same day). It was a beautiful, serene getaway and we enjoyed 3 days of skiing during our week at nearby Sugar and Beech resorts. The adults even got to enjoy an afternoon at Banner Elk winery, courtesy of the kids :-). Thank you very much, I would highly recommend this stay for anyone looking for a mountain getaway! Happy New Year!”
