Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the wonderful week at your mountain home. We made a lot of family& friend memories to cherish forever, late night lounging on the deck and in the hot tub. The kids enjoyed the game room, everything was perfect. Thank you for one of our best vacations...so relaxing...we loved it.

Beautiful house with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and couldn’t be happier with everything this home had to offer. We spent every morning on the deck watching the sunrise. In the evenings everyone gathered in the game room for fun and laughs. We made so many great family memories. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Owner's Response: Our home is perfect for large groups, either all family or several families, up to 12 people. Five bedrooms and plenty of space to spread out. All the entertainment features you could ask for, and our dry sauna and hot tup are especially welcomed after a day of skiing or boarding. The deer come around often to visit our guests and receive treats from the kids. Thanks for staying with us and come back again soon. Jim & Dinah
