We love this house!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying here and we absolutely loved it! This house has everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of room and privacy for our group of 10 - 6 adults and 4 kids. 3 full bathrooms, comfortable beds, very well equipped kitchen, pool table and awesome location for skiers - just few minutes away from Elk mountain. It's very cozy and we feel like at home. We will be back again. Thank you Peter!

Our stay was amazing. The house was comfortable and very spacious. Had everything we needed. The owner was helpful and available at any time if we had questions. The skiing at Elk Mountain was perfect for the 3 days we were there. Not crowded and fresh powder.. Also very close. Everyone in the area were very nice and friendly. Hope to go next year.

Wonderful Experience

  • 5 of 5

We chose the property not knowing quite what to expect, but hoping for the best as we where renting it to attend our son's wedding. It exceeded all expectations. The owner communicated well and helped us by answering questions on several occasions. The house is well kept and very comfortable, with a kitchen that was a pleasure to use and so well equipped that we didn't need to bring anything extra. My wife and I, and our California relatives who stayed with us, cannot recommend it highly enough!!

Great mountain getaway

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place. Went for a ski weekend at Elk and the place lived up to all our expectations based on the photos, write-up and reviews. Clean, nicely decorated and plenty of amenities. We were two families (4 adults and 4 kids) and there was plenty of room for all. The owner was a pleasure to deal with and he got back to us immediately with any questions. We already booked for next year!

Unwind and Exhale - best chalet vacation home EVER!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families stay at Unwind and Exhale and can honestly say... the only downside to our entire vacation was that we didn't rent it for the entire week! We LOVED this house! It had everything you need - just like home. Our kids ranged from 12 - 4 years of age and all of the kids had plenty to do, inside and outside. The house itself is beautifully decorated, very clean and has everything you could possibly need or want. The bedrooms were a perfect size for 3 families - with plenty of room to spare. The beds themselves were very comfortable (we all slept like mountain logs!) and the rooms were so clean with plenty of furniture and closet space for all. All the bathrooms have been updated and are extremely clean. The kitchen itself is a decent size, has everything you could want and plus some. All major appliances were working and very functional for 3 families :) The dining room is gorgeous with a very large table that accommodated all of us (beautiful table I will add!) The living room on the main floor is a perfect size with very comfortable seating for watching tv or looking out of the 2 huge sliding glass doors that overlook the backyard and woods. The downstairs living space/game room... aka, the party room is just 'awesome!' The game room comes complete with a pool table, beautiful decorated bar, tv, full bath (which is brand new and gorgeous!) and another bedroom. The kids and adults thoroughly enjoyed this room :) The outside of the chalet is breathtaking with beautiful views of the mountain and a very well manicured landscaped lawn (you do a great job maintaining Peter!) There is a huge wrap around deck which we spent countless hours on when we weren't at the lake or playing in the game room! Plenty of seating outside for 5 families and plus some!!!

Overall, I can't say enough wonderful things about this house... truly is a gem and I know we will be staying again next year - this time for the entire WEEK! Thank you Peter for allowing us to stay in your wonderful home :)
