January Renter

  • 4 of 5

Size of house is perfect for large groups. Everyone slept comfortably in a bed.

Decor is outdated but tasteful. Carpet needs replacing.

Owner's Response: Hi Stephanie, I hope you enjoyed your time at Holiday Valley. But I must point out something about Morningstar Lodge. When you left you left the oven on with a glass baking dish inside. It left quite an odor through out the cabin and I hope we can get it cleared out before the next guests arrive. Thankfully it didn't become a more serious problem . Vince

The perfect ski chalet for a large group with incredible views

  • 5 of 5

I brought a large group up for a 25 year anniversary celebration and this was the perfect place. It is a little outdated but beyond that there are no negatives. It has ample room, plenty of bathrooms and the large main floor with the open floor plan allowed for a great time.

Vince, thank you so much for everything. It was nice to meet you. See you again next year!

Location misleading

  • 3 of 5

A. Property is closer to Tannenbaum than Yodler. Not walkable to lift as there is not an accessible path.

B. Label lights and provide directions for fireplace.

C. Cupboards and drawers in kitchen need cleaned. As weather cools "critters" seek warmth as do people. Mouse droppings were in nearly every cupboard.

D. Comfortable layout, comfy beds, fun weekend.

Owner's Response: Not sure about this review but here goes: A. Property is equidistant from both lodges. I recommend Yodler as there are stairs directly to the lodge and more facilities. There is not a path, there is a ROAD directly to both lodges. I am 68 and walk to Yodler every time I ski. I do not recommend the trip in ski boots. B. This is my house, not a factory with labels for everything. The gas fireplace works off a simple light switch right on the fireplace and very visible. C. I appreciate news of "critters". I keep bait out always as a precaution. However, I just stayed at the Morningstar Sunday to Wednesday and saw no evidence. But I will alert the cleaning staff to be on the lookout. D. I am glad to hear that everyone had a fun weekend and would hope that they return.
