While the house is very large and spacious, important to note the following. There is no working tv and there is no radio. So make sure to bring a speaker and games for kids/iPads. If you look to start a fire, you can - just make sure to buy/bring a lighter/matches. If you have small kids bring a gate and lookout for the basement door bc you cannot lock it. All appliances work well (stove, coffee maker, oven). The hot tub is very nice. The house is like 25mins from the mountain. While the rooms are very warm the common areas can be a bit drafty, FYI. Also, and we have been renting houses for the past 6 years- we have never had to pay for early/ late checkout. The owner charges for both. However, communication with the owner was very easy.
