A few of you mentioned that you would like to see the address to the home on the website. We do not give out addresses to homes until check-ins to protect the privacy and honor the security of other guests and to protect the overall security of the home. As noted above, 72% of you told us that a secluded location is important to you. And 40-60% of our guests live within a 2-hour drive which makes it easy to drive up to the mountain in advance of their visit to check out the home. When you are visiting, we do not want you to be disturbed by a future guest who is just looking around. This policy ensures that everyone will enjoy their private and secluded vacation.
We do try to post as many photos of the surrounding area as possible, so you can get an idea of the type of neighborhood and the proximity of other homes. We also have 360 virtual tours for each home posted on the website. You can find the virtual tour by clicking on the Overview page of each home, then scrolling down to the end of the text and clicking on "Take the Tour".

How can we do better?
You had lots of great compliments, too. Most of the compliments were also regarding the maintenance and housekeeping. We heard several comments like the one below:
"Location & pet friendly-ness. I love that we can stay in an exceptionally beautiful and clean home with our pets."
"The whole rental was amazing. The location, how secluded it was, that INCREDIBLE kitchen, the amenities (seriously, how soft those sheets were!). I have traveled extensively and this ranks in the top two trips. Thanks!"
"Everything about the home was exactly how it was described and explained both on the website and by your wonderful and very helpful office staff. They were very responsive and friendly. The home was clean and amenities were great"
"We loved that the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. The home was cozy and felt clean, not like a "revolving door "rental."
A very common sentiment is "It was very secluded, yet near to everything. We absolutely adored the privacy of the personal hot tub overlooking the river."
