This was our first time staying at Stiefvater's and our entire family (all 16 of us) immensely enjoyed our time. There was something for everyone from our 2 year old niece, 19 and 24 year old cousins, our selves, and my parents (Grandma and Grandpa)! The house was beautiful, clean, welcoming, and spacious! The younger kids enjoyed the playground, sandbox, sandy beach, and the ducks. The older kids appreciated the kayaks, recreation room, short walk to the village, and the wireless internet (ok I did too). My husband and I were able to dock our boat for early morning and sunset cruises free of charge...

If your family is thinking about vacationing in the mountains and you want a welcoming, kid-friendly atmosphere, definitely think about Stiefvater's for your next vacation!
