A perfect ski/snowboard place for family vacations. Charming 3-bedroom 2-bath unit on entire ground floor is soundproof from upstairs. 2 bedrooms with queen beds are adjacent to separate bathrooms (1 of these bedrooms has a separate outside entrance); 3rd bedroom has queen & 2 bunk-beds--ideal for children. Perfect for 2 families with 1-2 children each or 3-generation family as grandparents can have entirely separate bedroom/bathroom. Also ideal for 2 couples or 3 singles. Fewer people can rent the unit with only 2 of the 3 bedrooms and no access to the laundry room.
Cozy living/dining/kitchen area has everything--including spices! No one is out of the action stuck in a kitchen. Relaxing cabin decor includes aspen wood ceilings and comfortable furnishings. Free Wi-Fi & local calls. Most cell phones work fine except on the busiest holidays when tower capacity can be overwhelmed, especially for AT&T. On-site owner who loves to ski can provide forgotten items and local information re skiing, lessons, ski/board rentals, restaurants, etc, etc.
Short 5-7 min walk to lifts; optional very very short drive to parking area. 4-wheel drive or AWD strongly recommended for Coyote Lane although roads are plowed regularly; 2nd house in from low-traffic main road (Twining Rd). Assistance with access is possible with call to owner.
Very reasonable SUMMER and FALL get-away rates with popular hiking trails galore, mountain biking, disc golf & mountain lift rides. High temps in the mid-70s. Gorgeous night views of the stars.
