This is probably the best find we could have hoped to find on VRBO. Seriously. My girlfriend and I were looking to get away for a while, some peaceful, affordable, quiet place in the mountains to unwind, cook, talk, rest and play in the snow.
We got all that and a kick-ass landlord to boot. Stand-out points were:
The cabin's interior made us feel welcome from the get-go.
A whole lot of firewood for our heating needs.
Well-equipped kitchen (even the knives were sharp!).
Solace (a couple of days in a row, we were the only people we saw all day).
Thoughtful provisions by the owner (extra heater, snowshoes, water etc).
... and lots more.
But what really made us fall in love with the place was Troy, the owner. While we were up there, it was pretty cold and snowy. Not a problem, we found the place after some looking around and got comfy. A couple of days into our stay, however, some of the water pipes kept freezing up. Troy came up to the cabin personally a few times to fix the problems we were having and extended our stay by two days as compensation!
Going here over winter break was without a doubt the best decision we could have made.
