Guestbook comments from the owner

The house was gorgeous and amazing, thank you so much for letting us use it for the weekend. We had an absolute blast, the location was extremely convenient and right near everything we could ever need. The snow at the top of the mountain was good for skiing too, which was great for this time of the year.

Amazing Location, Spacious and Well Equipped

  • 5 of 5

We just had a great stay in this great property. The house is in an amazing location and only a very short walk to the Village and Highlands Gondola (Didn't use the shuttle bus once). Even though the snow was struggling, we could ski to the Gondola each morning which was awesome. We had 2 families with small children plus 2 sets of grandparents and the house had more than enough room to house us very comfortably. The kitchen is very well equipped. We hope to stay here again.

The owners are great. They were very responsive and accommodating. They also provide great instructions for the home.
