Our family had a wonderful time.
What a great time we had! We only wish we could have stayed longer. The property is beautiful with spectacular sunsets to be seen from several rooms in the home. So many activities... skating on the pond, playing pool in the great room, building a cozy fire, hiking, snow shoeing, doing puzzles, visiting charming towns nearby, working out upstairs, and much more. So much space to either be together or to have some privacy. Great fun. ”
