Everything and more! Would not change a thing!

We rented this property for 9-days/8-nights during early/mid March 2013.
The listing of this property was very accurate, except better than I expected. While the pictures are accurate, the nice attention to details are evident only once you are there. For example, there are candles spread around the house, ample closet space (walk-in at MBR), private desk area off the MBR, custom showers in MBA with double heads, blankets and DVDs for movie night, towels for the hot springs, supplies provided such as fresh soaps, etc.
The decor is a nice combination of classy and rustic. We entertained visiting families for dinner/drinks several nights, and there was room enough (including plates/glasses/utensils) for all.
The radiant heat flooring was appreciated by all, as not a cold draft felt once!
This house is very well maintained and was very clean. My wife and son both have allergies, especially to dust/dogs, and there was nary a sneeze or sniffle.
I dealt with Marcy in booking several months in advance; she was very pleasant and thoughtful, and the transaction was quick and easy. Directions to the property were clear and gaining secure entry was painless.
I would definitely recommend this property to any of my friends or relatives. Friends traveling with us rented another house nearby (not as nice as this one IMO), and I was slightly envious of their outdoor hot tub until I discovered the really comfortable whirlpool bathtub in the MBR - perfect relaxation under candlelight after skiing all day, and I didn't have to freeze outside when getting out!
We skiied every day at Wolf Creek, maybe a 40-45 minute drive. The day we drove in, there was 10 inches of fresh powder with no new snow all week; every day thereafter was sunny progressively warming. Grooming of runs is sparse. The high altitude affected us all in some way, some worse than others (breathlessness to headaches/nausea). All the kids attended ski school for 3 days and advanced quickly, all eventually skiing black slopes by the last day. Rates are very reasonable, and staff generally pleasant.
Almost every night, we cooked in at this property and did not want for anything.
One night we tried to go to Pagaso Brewery, but the wait was 90 minutes - we went across the street and dined at Shanghai Chinese Restaurant, walked right in and seated immed; dinner was good but not great.
The location is much better than anything near downtown, as the air near the springs have a sulphorous stench.
