Wow...all I can say is customer service and location was phenomenal (Family of 4 from Raleigh)

The Owner: My first impression held true the entire time...he was excellent!!! Tim was very quick to respond to any questions...from 1st email to post-check out. Even to the point of corresponding while on his cruise vacation. Tim's your man.
The Condo: Both bedrooms (very spacious) were clean and had brand new, plush beds (1King/1Queen)...every room had a TV. Bathrooms were clean; NO MOLD in tubs like some paces I've seen. Everything you needed to cook with was there; most importantly was a coffee pot. Large flat-panel TV, DVD/VCR, and X-box were great additions for our little one. Living area was the perfect size; sofa (w/fold out bed) was comfortable. Our only discomfort was the heat; which we learned from the front desk was an entire building issue; outside of Tim's control...But crack a window and we were fine in a few minutes.
For those with children, there's a huge arcade ($.50 per game) and an indoor play center in the lodge and you can rent movies from the front desk.
The Location: Tim's got it made. Being on the second floor, you're protected from the elements (above and below). The wind chill was -30, snow storm, and 30mph winds while we were there and the snow drift against the building nearly covered the windows of the units on the first floor...must have been cold in those rooms. But we were fine and dandy; and the elevators made getting to the room with luggage a breeze.
Tim's unit is on the wing closest to the Village and adjacent to a main ski slope...literally walk out the back door of the lodge and you're skiing. Parking spots were an endangered species around the town (free parking at the lodge as a guest), so this was a huge plus. Everything was within walking distance from the condo (even Starbucks)...never needed to take a shuttle, even with the weather. Take this over "Top of the World" (cheapest rates, but low quality and far away) any day of the week. They're also about to open an Italian restaurant (Auntie Pasta's) in the lodge.
The Price: For a resort town, the food, lodging, ski rentals, and shops were not too bad. Foxfire grill has the best Roast Beef sandwich. For Tim's unit, I couldn't find anything else as reasonable for the location and customer service I received...I'd recommend to anyone in a heartbeat; especially for those with young ones.
As a Christmas vacation for my wife and I, we couldn't have asked for anything better...except for cooperating weather. Thanks Tim!!! Hope to be back soon.
