Sundance Studio is spacious and perfect for 2 while comfortably sleeping up to 4 people. Our most luxurious accommodation and well decorated throughout, it’s a must for a romantic rendezvous destination! Inside you will find a brand new kitchen, a king size bed with memory foam mattress and luxury linens and an open flow living area in a studio setting. It offers you opulent decorations and a peaceful tranquil inspired space. 

But the absolutely amazing bathroom will leave you speechless. A huge 2-person bathtub and shower with rain head, body sprays and individual showerheads all controlled at your desire with a heated towel rack to wrap things up! 

We didn’t stop inside either, once you step out onto the marvelous deck you can choose your destination! Large hot tub, dining outdoors, relaxing at the seating areas, lounging in the sun or simply napping in the outdoor bed, you will be able to breath in the fresh air and soak in stunning views.

Quiet Birthday Getaway

This property is amazing. The bathroom is to die for, and I love sitting on the porch looking at all the deer. I love the little kitty friends who always were ready for some love. I would definitely recommend stopping to pet the donkeys. Wonderful stay. We will be back!

We Can't Wait to Come Back!

We had a great time at the Sundance. It’s only a short ten minute drive from Main Street. We loved being slightly away from the city cause we could really see the stars at night while sitting in the hot tub. Everything was very clean and all amenities we needed were provided as described. We would highly recommend staying here for a romantic getaway. Also, make sure you make friends with the cats under the porch, they are very sweet! We can’t wait to come back!

Exceeded our Expectations!

My husband and I were two burned out, essential healthcare workers as well as newlyweds. Because of the pandemic, we hadn’t been able to take any vacations since our honeymoon last December. This was our first trip and it exceeded our expectations. The views and scenery were breathtaking. The hot tub was perfect and already prefilled which was a nice touch. We made s’mores at the fire pit. The interior is luxurious. The bathroom is a dream bathroom, particularly the shower. The gameroom is fantastic and well equipped. Amer answered all our questions in record time. We will be back to Sundance Studio and maybe even bring some friends along to Vaughan House!

We will be back for sure!!

This place was beautiful and just what we needed for our little getaway! Loved the deck with gorgeous sunset views and watching all the deer. The hot tub was awesome to relax in the evenings and the bathroom was amazing! Far enough from town to be quiet and close enough to drive in for things as needed. Amer was a great host and left a bottle of wine from a local vineyard for us to enjoy. Always quick on responses as well. We will be back for sure!!

Quiet and Relaxing

Sundance Studio was super nice. Quiet and relaxing. Awesome bathroom. Nice hot tub to view the deer and the meteor shower. Would highly recommend. AC works good. Nice kitchen for cooking. No ice maker so bring trays or stop and get a bag. Would not hesitate to book again. Thanks
