The kitchen is stocked with all the comforts of home to include bakeware, a crockpot, air fryer, InstaPot, extendable s'mores sticks for those cool nights by the fire, and much more!

"This is a great home for a family gathering! It had everything we could think of and I would book again in a heartbeat. Three distinct floors each offer a suite for different couples and 2 bunk beds (with a tv) give the kids their own space for chilling. Game room was a hit. Hot tub used after golf and hiking. Fire pit was a gathering spot. Lots of nooks for folks to find quiet time alone and large gathering spaces for fun. Kitchen perfect. Centrally located to enjoy all that the High Country has to offer."
