Just perfect

Mountainaire exceeded our expectations, and our expectations were HIGH! After dreaming of this place for months by looking at pictures and wishing we could come, four nights in July opened up and we JUMPED at the chance to book. Fingers crossed the pictures and reviews were accurate we arrived 7/15 and have absolutely loved every single second. The details within the house are so well thought out, from the location of handy side tables and chargers right where you need them, to the softest sheets, to the well stocked kitchen (Hot tip: you do NOT need to bring pancake syrup :), to the smart board that literally answered any question we needed, and countless other details that made this feel like home, but better! We are so grateful to have been here and cannot wait to come back.

Spectacular property in a beautiful location

WOW. WOW. WOW. Mountainaire is one of the most beautifully designed and outfitted homes we've visited - and we've stayed in some pretty amazing places. The cabin vibe and interior design and furniture are impeccable. The beds and linens are top-notch and super comfortable. The bathrooms are exquisite and spacious, and the kitchen is well stocked. But the truly amazing part of this home is the wrap-around porch and lower deck. While it was a bit chilly to use the sleeping porch at night, several of us took advantage of it for afternoon siestas. We ate multiple meals outside thanks to the outdoor heaters, made fires (and s'mores) in the outside fireplace, and yearn to return when the plunge pool is open for the season. To learn that every board used in the house was harvested from the property made it even more special. Of course, walking along the river, exploring the wooden suspension bridges, and a hike to the top of Ice Mountain were amazing too. Finally, we were so grateful to be able to bring multiple pups - all of whom had a great time exploring the smells and lounging with us on the porch.

Oasis in the woods

Stephen & Mary's oasis in the woods is spectacular. Rustic charm with enough modern amenities to leave one feeling at home in nature. Great supply of firewood to warm yourselves inside or out on cold night while the rushing sound of the river is only yards away. Just a fantastic place to get away from the world for a while. In terms of management - these hosts are responsive, informative and very engaged! We'd gladly return.

We cannot wait to return.

Spectacular home in an amazing location. Adults and kids were super comfortable during our stay. Easy river access and the beautiful wraparound porch were some of the highlights of our trip. There was not a single amenity lacking and it is apparent that Stephen and a Mary are thoughtful and responsive hosts. They even went above and beyond to return several forgotten items! We cannot wait to return.

This cabin exceeds all expectations!

This property exceeds all expectations. Our group of 10 could not have been happier with the house, its location, and all of the amenities. Stephen & Mary thought of everything! The kitchen is well appointed, every bed is comfortable with quality bed linens, between the indoor and outdoor space there is enough space for everyone to spread out and do their own thing but also space for communal dining and gathering. The hot tub made it so we could still enjoy the outdoor area despite the chilly temps. We especially loved the heaters above the dining table on the wrap around porch; it allowed our group to eat dinner together all at one table even though it was about 40 degrees. Can’t say enough great things! If you’re looking for a remote vacation where you can unplug and really enjoy the company of those you are with, book Stephen & Mary’s stunning cabin.

This is an Exceptional Property

This is truly a luxurious home. The decor and furnishings are beautiful. Information and instructions are readily available to assist in using all the home's many features and extras. This home is perfect year-round for getting away and relaxing. There was snow when we visited and we were still able to spend time outside on the back deck, take long walks exploring, and hang out in the hot tub. Our family had an amazing stay and look forward to returning.
