My family of 5 rented the house for the full winter season; from December 1, 2012 to March 31, 2013. Our first experience with a winter season rental and we weren't disappointed. We were there just about every weekend, and it didn't get old - that should say a lot about the house in and of itself.
Great location - convenient to the mountain, to town, the recycling center, and close to the main road which was a big deal for us not wanting to navigate steep and winding roads in winter conditions. House was in a great setting too - very quiet, and among many other high-end homes.
The amenities were great; house was perfectly stocked, very clean, and quite comfortable and warm.
The owner was very accommodating and responsive to questions and concerns (which we had very few). It was great to have an owner we could contact who was more concerned about the comfort of his tenants than making money on the property. Owner was very flexible on payment terms, and we couldn't beat the fact that firewood, plowing, and utilities were included in our contract.
The house was more than a place to hang our hats as we ran to and from the mountain. It was a place we felt very comfortable to lounge around and watch a movie in front of the fire, and a great place to entertain our friends and family. There was plenty of room with the 4 bedrooms to spread out and have guests for the weekend. To boot, the high speed internet access at the house and cell service was great.
Definitely a place i would recommend, and a place i would rent again if we're in the market. To sum it up; a great value, convenient location, great amenities, and excellent landlord. We hope to be back in 2013-14.
