Exceeded Expectations for Our Ski Trip
Submitted: March 2, 2012
Stayed: February 2012
Of the many houses we've rented over the years, this gem is at the top of our list.
The location is perfect for a ski trip since Mt. Snow is only a few minutes down the road. It's also conveniently located near the main road which has all the necessary stores (grocery, 7-11, ski shops, etc.).
It's usually hard to judge the size of a house from photos but I can honestly say this house is perfect for a family of 2 with children (8-9 people). In fact, it was larger than what we expected. There are a total of 3 floors: downstairs (under renovation); main level and an upstairs loft.
There are 6 beds in 3 rooms (technically 2 rooms but the upstairs master loft is quite large and fits a queen size bed and a full size futon). There are also 3 working bathrooms (not 2 as indicated in the ad) which was a bonus. The upstairs loft has a bathroom with a shower. The main bathroom is located in between the living room and the 2 main bedrooms which contains a bathtub/shower. There's also a bathroom with a bathtub/shower located in the downstairs area.
I should point out that as of this writing, it appears the owners are renovating the downstairs area to include another bedroom and playroom. Perhaps next year this would be a great option for a larger group.
The living room is a good size and comfortably seats 7 people (5 on the 2 couches, 1 on the love seat and 1 in the rocker chair). The kitchen is also a good size and large enough to have 3-4 people inside working without stumbling over each other. Everything was clean and in working order.
There's plenty of closet space, linens, towels and pillows. They also provide a blow-up mattress as needed. Finally, the property is rather large and far enough from other neighbors to maintain adequate privacy. In fact, we spent a lot of time outside playing in the snow (sleds are provided which was great because the property is located on a slightly downhill slope).
There are only a couple of things that could use improvement (none of which are deal breakers in our opinion). The water pressure in the upstairs bedroom was a little low. The flatscreen tv in the living room is on the smaller side for such a large space. And the fridge might be a little too small for a large group of people.
Otherwise, we would definitely love to rent this house again.
- Relaxing hot tub

Owner's Response: Thanks for the review. We love that you enjoyed the house and the property, because we do too. As you mentioned we are refinishing some space, which will allow for a larger TV and play area. We strive to have this rental well-suited and equipped for families. Thanks for the construction points too, we can always improve, and we will look to fix the shower pressure during our spring maintenance.
