This vacation exceeded all our expectations. The house is perfectly situated in the Elk River. The sunsets are stunning. We took the kayak out on the water and swam in the heated pool for hours. There are amazing outdoor and indoor speakers that they showed us how to use. We sat on the deck every night and watched the sunset with a glass of wine. This house is so great for kids too – especially the upstairs area. No details are missing here – she even had perfect plastic but elegant wine and champagne glasses that we could use to have drinks outside and near the pool. I have no suggestions other than to say – book this now! This is under two hours from Baltimore. I can’t believe how well- stocked the house and kitchen are. Both Gretchen and the nearby caretaker are so easy to reach. Thanks again Gretchen – we made special family memories and we will be back!
