“Breathtaking” We rented this home with 2 other couples and couldn't have been more satisfied. The home was gorgeous and the guys especially liked the fly fishing without having to drive anywhere, while the ladies enjoyed the hot tub. The home had all the amenities you could ask for. Carolyn & Terry were wonderful hosts and we definitely would like to return.
“Windows on Paradise” This is a beautifully designed home with high ceilings, exposed rafters, stone fireplace, and lots of floor-to-ceiling windows that both let a lot of light into the house and also provide wonderful views of the outdoors. The setting is very private and secluded overlooking Beaver Creek. The house is well maintained and clean, and the furniture comfortable and tasteful. The staff at Mountain Home provided a very informative packet of materials and was very helpful in answering questions and helping to make our stay an enjoyable one. There was one minor glitch, which is reflected in downgrading my service rating to only three stars, when the owners had someone enter the house without our knowledge and during our absence to retreive their CDs. As a five-string banjo player and music lover, I had been playing the CDs and thought that they came with the house, like the Dvds that were also provided. (I compliment the owners on their taste in music -- Tim O'Brien, Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, etc.). But when the CDs were suddenly and mysteriously missing, I spent two hours unsuccessfully trying to find them with much anxiety and frustration. I even questioned the children of the family that was accompanying us about whether they had done something with them. This situation bothered me all during the day, until I asked the staff at Mountain Home to look into it. Needless to say, I wasn't happy to subsequently learn that all of this could have been avoided simply by giving us the courtesy of some advance notice and asking our permission to enter the house with all of our personal possessions in our absence. As a serious home cook, I found the two-burner Jenn-Air stove to be frustrating to prepare meals for the 4 adults and 3 children in our group. I also found the infra-red outdoor BBQ difficult to use. So it wasn't my ideal cooking environment. But these are minor nitpicks about what was, overall, a really lovely place in a secluded and beautiful setting.
