My friends and I had our annual ski trip get together, and by far, this home was the most beautiful and comfortable vacation getaway that we've stayed in. First, the owner was so warm and informative in providing all the necessary information about the home, as well as her favorite places to eat, good activities around town and details about the ski resorts and rental places. She was very responsive to all my questions by both e-mail and phone, before our arrival as well as through our stay. There were many personal touches, including the lovely AVEDA products in all the bathrooms. Her kitchen is indeed fully stocked with gourmet utensils and ingredients, and we all feasted several nights on meals that we had cooked. Other perks were the outdoor hot tub (essential after a hard day of skiing, and quite lovely to sit in while there is a light snowfall) and the steam shower. She provides a pass to the gondola parking lot, so we ended up making good use of that. The only difficulty was that the house is actually not an easy "ski in and ski out" home for beginner skiers. I am a green level skier and had tried to follow her detailed instructions to get to the ski resort, but ended up taking off the skis and walking a rather long and arduous trail to the resort. Also, the house is a long walk down to the free shuttle stops, therefore not easily accessible by foot from the ski lifts. Despite these difficulties, our stay was a lovely one, and I would definitely return again. Rating: 5 stars for the beautiful home and the thoughtful and responsive owner, minus 1 star for the difficult access to the ski lifts without a car.
Owner's Response: Thanks for your thorough and accurate review. I completely agree with your assessment of our ski access and level of difficulty. It is important to me to accurately represent our home, amenities and location. All of these detail specifics were included with my response to your initial inquiry.
