Guestbook comments from the owner

Here is a quote from an email the guest sent after their stay:

"We had a wonderful time while vacationing in your home. Thank you. The slopes were not crowded until Saturday and by then, I think we had all exhausted our skiing talents. The weather was perfect and the house was just the right size for our group!"

Perfect for 4 couples

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed our long weekend in this home. It was perfect for 4 couples. We each had a spacious bedroom with a queen or king size bed. We also liked the privacy of each couple having their own bathroom. It is rare to find both amenities in a vacation rental home. I reviewed over 35 homes before finding this one. The owner was very pleasant and helpful. She even provided, upon request, a virtual tour of the home. Thanks, Priscilla and Joe

Perfect!!

  • 5 of 5
Groundhog Day Lodge was the perfect fit as we celebrated JMU's "Family Weekend". The house had plenty of space for all of us to spread out in, visit, and relax. We enjoyed the large, well stocked kitchen for our cooking and the screened porch allowed us to sit outside and enjoy the deer walking through the woods. Checking in was a breeze and we found the house immaculate. Alena was very prompt in returning emails/calls with our questions and she was very flexible and easy to work with. We would recommend the house to family and friends who might be in the area in the future!!

Well-cared for home with lots of space

  • 5 of 5
Easy communication with owner and responsive to all questions. Home is well-cared for and lots of space with four large bedrooms, each with its own bath. Well-outfitted kitchen, lots of TVs, gas fireplace and games. Convenient to skiing and activities (5 minute drive). We will definitely go back.

Spacious & Amazing

Spacious & Amazing
  • 5 of 5
When we first got to the property we were frustrated because going up the driveway was difficult; it was partially covered with ice and once we got up the driveway we were waiting approximately 20 mins to hear back from the property manager. Once we got in the property everything went smoothly. The house is amazing with great size rooms and a bathroom for each room. The kids enjoyed playing ping pong. The pictures shown does not do this house justice. The whole house is very spacious. You won't feel all bunched together in a house. The owner was also amazing in helping with getting the wifi straight. I knew I could always count on the owner being there if anything went wrong. Overall we had a blast and was very comfortable at this home.

Owner's Response: Let me preface my response by saying that we no longer use this property manager...
I was so upset when I heard that the guests were left waiting to hear back from the property manager upon their arrival, in the cold nonetheless. Apparently the manager had changed the lockbox code since providing the guests with the original code, and did not let me know about the change either. Fortunately, the guests decided to call me after waiting for a while. I was able to get in touch with the manager right away and get them into the warm house. While our driveway is not as steep as many others on the mountain, it can be difficult when there is ice. We paid the property manager to clear it, but it sounds like it either continued to snow or wasn't done well enough. We are working to find a new snow removal person for next winter.

After this guest's stay, we decided to manage Groundhog Day Lodge ourselves. Since the change, our rentals have been much smoother.

Aside from the hiccups getting into the house, we are so glad that the guests enjoyed their stay and would be happy to welcome them back anytime!

Just Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This immaculate is truly a Home Away from Home. The slopes are located just a couple of minutes away, the house has 4 fantastic bedrooms and the upstairs open space is perfect for the whole family. Our kids enjoyed everything the resort has to offer, including the water park.
Easy access, and everything was perfectly placed. Our time there was awesome. Thanks Alena for everything...

Wonderful large home with beautiful views

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for Thanksgiving and had a wonderful vacation. This home is much larger than it looks in the photos and has very nice decor. It has a great layout and is perfect for families and children. The large open kitchen made it easy to prepare our big meal. It has a two great decks and is very close to all the activities, petting farm, skiing/tubing, scenic overlook etc. It was our first trip to this area and we are hoping to go back again. The owners and property manager were great to work with and responded quickly to all of our inquires. We would definitely recommend this home to our friends and family.
