    BOC is helpful, friendly and reliable. Much better than competitors who will lose thousands of dollars over the next few years because of poor service and poor customer relations. We rented from competitors last year and had a much better experience with BOC.More

    My husband is battling a serious illness. I would love to treat he and I and our 4 adult kids to a weekend of solitude and beauty. I see that the weekend of Oct 17 & 18 seems pretty booked. I would like to have access to hot tub for all of us to relax under the stars with a great view off the back deck. Can you please recommend the best room (for 6) and or time to see the leaves during this time? Prefer a weekend if possible. Sincerely, kymberlyk
