This Cozy Mountain Home is just that!! When we walked in, it gave us such a feeling of comfort that made us want to stay forever. If you love the mountains and want a place that is truly cozy, this home has all you could want. Sandy has it well stocked and the amenities are all there!! We were a family of 4 adults, a 2 years old boy and 2 month girl. It was accommodating to all of us, young and old. There is so much to do in this area and Sandy's write-up covers it well. I can't say enough about this home, except we fell in love with it. Living in Jacksonville, Florida, we travel to that area to visit family. We do know that upon returning, we will first check to see if this Cozy Mountain Home is available. If you are interested, talk to Sandy. She is so helpful and nice to chat with!
