Great house! Clean, bright and comfortable! You walk into a spacious, open family room with a beautiful wood burning fireplace. The house is close to nearby hiking and ski trails. The welcome gift was a delightful surprise. We can't wait to return to experience a colorful Fall and to enjoy a roaring fire in the fireplace.

We were very pleased with our stay here. The cabin was clean and well maintained and we appreciated the small details upon arrival such as complimentary toiletries and a welcome gift. The hosts were very friendly and responsive to any questions we had, they also shared many fun local activities for us to explore during our stay. The cabin was spacious and family friendly. I'd highly recommend Northern Lights to anyone looking to get away, relax, and not have to worry about any of the small details. High-speed internet, washer / dryer, and trash removal were all a big plus as well! We look forward to returning during the winter to enjoy the fireplace, huge jetted tub, and skiing right up the road.
