The owners were wonderful & the Condo was perfect. The owners kept in contact with us to make sure everything was good. It was our first condo rental & thanks to them we are hooked.
The spa, sauna and laundry were only steps from the door & a small mall across the street. Also a fishing pond across the street with playground for the kids. Everything was so close and the views from the living room were beautiful. The condo is exactly as they have pictured it and is very, very comfortable. We were able to watch the fireworks for the 4th from the patio and living room. No wi-fi in unit but free wi-fi offered at several location in town and there was plenty of 4G access.
It is very close to Cedar Breaks & we were able to enjoy the Wildflower Festival. There are so many trails and sights to see we didn't want to leave. Everyone in the town was friendly & there are larger towns close by. We definitely want to return.
If you want a place centrally located to at least National Parks, in the middle of a National Forest and with all the outdoor activities you can imagine extremely close, this is the place for you.
I recommend this place as PERFECT.
