First, the view is quite good, save for the power plant (i'm assuming) that was right in the middle of everything. The drive way was VERY steep. My wife nearly hyperventilated! The nights were surprisingly quiet. The house isn't very kid friendly, but it's not a death trap. Mainly, there are no outlet plugs, so you'd have to bring those. The stairs to the basement have a door so you can close and lock it to keep little ones from tumbling down. The upstairs did not have a way to keep children from going up, so that had to be remedied.
All in all, it was a pleasant stay.
