In addition, we provide our guests with access to our unique online guidebook complete with all of our favorite restaurants, things to do, and places to see. Once Upon a Stream is ideally setup for a two-family vacation getaway. The cottage is a 3 BR/2.5 BA with a loft and sleeps up to 10 comfortably. The main level offers a large Master en-suite with a King-size bed topped with 400 thread-count, Egyptian cotton sheets, and high-end pillows. You will be in heaven in the over-sized jetted tub enjoying the view and taking in all of nature's beauty. Upstairs, there are two additional bedrooms and a loft with pullout couch. The 2nd bedroom has a queen-sized bed also topped with fine linens and pillows. The 'bunk room' is equipped with four twin-size bunk beds and additional air mattresses for overflow kids. Ideally situated on a 2-acre private lot, the cottage will spoil you to the point where you won't want to leave. Greet the morning with a cup of coffee on the large back deck. Stroll down the backyard hill along the meandering boulder pathway to the stone patio below and enjoy a glass of wine as you listen to the noisy stream. The kids will stay busy exploring and hiking up and downstream- bring your dog too! Whether you stay for a few nights or a few weeks, we strive to create a one of a kind experience for you at Once Upon a Stream. Please contact us for more information on booking your mountain getaway. More
