|Minimum Stay||2 - 6 nights|
You like things to be authentic: no fake antiques or phony emotions for you. So when you go live in the mountains, you want the post and beam architecture, enormous river rock fireplace, and noble Moose King of the Snow Mountain Lodge. Some say it's just an average moose head mounted on the fireplace, but you know better, because you've seen the “Moose King Master Suite” with its attached marble bath. This is authentic mountain lodge living overlooking a ten-mile range of evergreens, where the Moose King's family lies in wait.

My group had a wonderful time while in CO. The house was just the right size and was in a beautiful location. When we got there the view was amazing! We really enjoyed our time there!
This house is pretty great, with a few things to consider:
1. Upon arrival we found a nice hand written note telling us to enjoy our stay along with a bottle of red wine (nice touch). BUT we also found another hand written note stating that the hot tub wasn't available to use for 24 hrs because they had to fill it with water earlier that day. The water was COLD. We all were talking about how great the hot tub was going to feel that night after driving SO long to get there. We were all looking forward to looking up at the stars and relaxing. This was a HUGE let down right off the bat.
2. The breathtaking views of the mountains from the deck were priceless, however it was quite a disappointment that the windows/doors were so filthy that if you wanted to see that view from the inside on the sofa by the fire, it was rather distracting since there was dirt and water spots all over the windows. They charge like a $300-$350 cleaning fee so we expected these windows to be spotless. I did complain about the dirty windows after our trip and was told window cleaning is not part of the cleaning fee, as thunderstorms roll through often and get the windows dirty often? How in the world does that cleaning fee NOT cover cleaning the windows that you look through to see the view of the mountains?
3. The 2nd master bedroom (upper level) fireplace was turned off and we were told not to use it. The main fireplace, 1st master, and basement fireplace worked great though. However, part of the reason we rented this place was for the fireplaces in the master bedrooms (romantic). So we couldn't use the fireplace and we also couldn't get the darn door to open so we could use the upper balcony/deck off the 2nd master bedroom. We unlocked it just fine but the door knob wouldn't turn right or something. So that wasn't available for us to use either.
Although we had a few other complaints, here's some of the good: Incredible view, amazing grand fireplace, beautiful kitchen with a gorgeous view of the mountains from the window above the sink, great grill, sweet hot tub, close to town, very spacious. And I don't think they advertise this but there is a large corner Jacuzzi tub in the master bathroom. We saw a red fox next door and snapped some pictures.
*Ruth from invited home was great before and after our stay. We let her know about the issues we had and they offered a credit for our inconvenience.
Beautiful home and experience. We stayed here with another family. We had 10 kids ranging from 10 months to 16 years old. There was plenty of space for sleeping and playing. The home had a few small issues, such as the fireplace was not working in the upstairs master, exterior doors hard to open, TV not getting a signal and a few other minor issues, but overall, still excellent. One day I had to request maintenance to replace a light bulb and fix a sticking door. They immediately came out, very pleasant and resolved the issues. Even the basement was open, bright, warm and a fun place to hang out. We lost power one Sunday evening for a few hours due to a transformer outage down the road. Not knowing who to call, I called the Invited Home rep (Ruth) who was more than willing to help and make sure we were safe. She offered to bring us candles, food or anything needed. Since the fireplace and gas stove still worked we were absolutely fine. Actually, it made the evening even better. It was one of those evenings that when the electricity came back on, we left it off.. Ruth continued to follow up with us until she knew the power was on and we were AOK. The home is fully stocked with everything you need and the pictures are as beautiful as the actual home. The neighborhood is nice. We talked to a few of the other neighbors (both renters and locals) and all very nice. A few days we simply hung around the house, played board games, talked, sat in hot tub and drank cocoa by the fire rather than going anywhere. Wonderful vacation, home and service.
We stayed in this home last summer for our family vacation with another family, and it was PERFECT! I would definately recommend this home, it fit our group of 4 adults and 6 children perfectly. The pool table was always in use and the surroundings are perfect!
