Great mountain retreat

Lisa and Len are a very friendly and accommodating couple. They have a wonderful, modern home in the mountains in a beautiful, quiet setting. Everything was well prepared and detailed information provided. The barn is very organized and daily chores are easily taken care of. It was a delight to look after the horses, Bella and GG.
