Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

House was very well maintained. From the moment we walked in we were astounded with the amenities the home provided. Great kitchen, patio, hot tub and room for all of us. Took advantage of the Fire pit one clear evening, roasting marshmallows with the kids. A night we will never forget. Game room was a nice treat as well. We will be back to the area and when we do we will be staying here again.

Great Experience!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we walked in we knew we picked the right place to stay! The house was much bigger than the pictures showed and the house was in immaculate condition. We requested a early check-in and a really late check-out and Antonia was very accommodating to us. We utilized the hot tub, fire pit and enjoyed the great views from the deck. Highly recommend this house! David

Great multi-level modern house, perfect for large or multiple families

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great 4 day getaway at this beautiful home! We rent a cabin every February with another family so we always have between 8-10 guests. This house was perfect for that! There is plenty of room for the adults (3 rooms with Queen or King) and kids (bunk bed & toy room, with additional mattress for extra kids). The couches also pull out to a bed (we didn't need them). The play room (i.e.: bar, pool table, ping pong table, extra TV room) is on the bottom floor which is a huge plus so us adults can play late into the night and not wake up the kiddos (also good for the kids to play while us parents need quiet time upstairs!). All the beds and bedding were super comfortable (thank you Tempurpedic beds!). The furniture is new and modern. The kitchen is fully stocked. The outside decks have fabulous comfortable patio furniture, great for lounging outside at night under the heat lamp, or during the day to have a coffee and read a book.

From the moment you enter the house, everything just feels welcoming. From the spacious and clean garage, to the open floor plan, to the gift basket as we arrive (stocked with wine, tea, coffee and cookies. All my favorite things!) The views are fabulous, and the house is super easy and quick to get to (just off Hwy 80). The only downside to benign right off the highway, you can also hear the highway. But it's just white noise if you open the windows and nothing really to complain about unless you truly need absolute peace and quiet.

Hot tub was fabulous, and fire pit would have been a huge bonus had we any energy left to build a fire in it and roast marshmallows for Smores. :) BBQ place at the end of the street is delicious (we ate there twice) and grocery store is super close too. We are looking forward to staying here again. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a great time!

Great house, perfect, convenient location!

  • 5 of 5

We took a gamble and picked a few weekends to ski this winter, renting the same house to create some consistency for our kids and routine, hoping the house would out. We found a winner! This house is well appointed, has all the necessary cooking tools, bedding, towels and comforts you would have in your own home. The house is very clean and thoughtfully prepared for rentals. You can tell the owners have a lot of pride and love in this house-- we (especially our kids) were so excited by the game room too. The location is PERFECT. Literally 2 minutes off the highway which makes late ate Friday night arrivals easier, as well as getting to either Northstar or Squaw. This is a great house for 2 families to rent together-- ample space and very well appointed!
