Kelli R. This was the first time we rented and were impressed by the experience. The cabin was comfortable beautifully decorated and stocked with everything you would want and need for a mountain escape! Beds were comfortable linens nice. Cabin spotless. Fun games in the garage and board games and card games too. Nice TV with access to all the latest viewing apps. Overall location was perfect. Quiet neighborhood on a main road very close to the slopes, zip lining, tubing and the village. Kitchen was equipped with everything you might need and plenty of room to cook and spread out. We loved the place and look forward to visiting again.

Beautiful home! Great experience! Kitchen was fantastic. Love the open floor plan. Fireplace was cozy. A couple recommendations...maybe have a portable heater for garage/game room. Also, darts need to be replaced (most are broken or bent).

I'm a newbie to home rentals (stay in lots of hotels, very few homes), so some of my complaints may be standard in that world, but overall this was an amazing home and experience. Pros: Lots of space for my 2 kids, board games and sleds included, a great game room to get crazy in, big kitchen with plenty of dishes and all working appliances. All the bedding, sheets, blankets, pillows, towels were high quality and better than most hotels. The master bed was especially comfortable.

As for complaints... overflowing trash cans in the drive way with loose trash that had blown around the yard. It wasn't trash day till Tuesday, so no one's fault, but still messy. House is on a busy road, so you need to turn the car around in the driveway so you’re always pulling in and out head first, dangerous to back the car out. The game room was great, but all the games were kind of run down and falling apart. Fine for a 3 and 6 year old, but just something I noticed. Lots of random left behind stuff in the cupboards that should not be (old toothbrushes).

Compared with other rentals in the area, the price was great and this home was a great value. Pros and cons sure, but overall I would definitely recommend it and my kids have already been asking to come stay here again!
