Overall satisfying

  • 5 of 5

Our overall experience was nice. The owner was real nice guy and allowed a late checkout. However, the beds were a bit uncomfortable. Lastly, would recommend some of the furnishing needs to be updated.

Owner's Response: I spoke to the renter after his review to find out which beds were uncomfortable. I have since replaced the full mattress on the lower bunk bed and added a king 3" foam top-sider to another. A couch and a sofa chair in the great room have visible tears on sections of the fabric and will be replaced soon. I routinely replace worn furniture, pillows, throw blankets, pillows, etc. all in an effort to ensure an optimal experience for my valued guests.

Second time was even better!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time staying here and it was as magnificent as ever. Martin was an amazing point of contact and returned emails in a very timely manner. The house is spacious and had plenty of room for our entire party. It is close to the slopes and to town! We are looking forward to coming here again.

The perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a group and need a large cabin this is your place! We had 8 adults and 8 kids and had more room than we needed. We still had several beds that we didn’t use. I can’t say enough good things you just have to see for yourself! Martin was available for the few questions that we had. Love love love this place!
