We love that this abode is a little more tucked away in the forests of Stanley. Everything becomes particularly majestic after the first snowfall when the trees are lightly dusted with a fluffy coat of powder. Inside remains relatively modernized, but still has the touches of rugged. So much recreation is at the guest’s fingertips.
