    4 of 5

    Cozy and efficient studio condo close to Beech Mountain. No truly ski in and ski out due to path being overgrown through the woods. Condo has full kitchen with all amenities. Recently remodeled bathroom and kitchen. Partition to separate bed from couch area for privacy. Windows open to forest with great view of natural surroundings. Deer walk freely through the condos almost close enough to touch. Owners very responsive when had questions and wonderful suggestion for local places to try to eat at. Would highly recommend this location for a mountain vacation. Thank you so much.

    The unit is well decorated. It’s small, but cozy and efficient. It was a cold, wet weekend (unfortunately we left our ski gear at home due to the weather). Upon walking in, the unit was very cold. It had more than likely not been occupied for a while. The floors were like ice and there were no instructions on how to turn the heat on. Luckily, we flipped some switches and we figured it out ourselves. Point being, it would have been nice had someone done a “start up” heat process in anticipation of our arrival, and provided some detailed instructions on the heat situation. The heat is vented on one wall, so the bathroom gets the least amount of heat. Also, the water line to the kitchen sink was off. Again, we searched and found the valve and turned it on. So again, a little attention to an arriving guest would have made things a bit less stressful when we arrived. Unfortunately, there were no dish towels, nor wash cloths for the bath whatsoever. This small complimentary touch would have been greatly appreciated. The dead bolt to the entry door is badly in need of replacement. It did not work and made us a bit nervous when only able to lock the door knob. The complex as a whole is a bit rundown, but decent. The deck stairs, concrete landings and walkways have been renovated. The old aluminum exterior siding is lacking and in need of a good pressure wash, but overall for a ski town, it’s not a big deal. I must stress that our review is meant constructively. This is a nice, cozy unit and very nice for a weekend mountain getaway for two.
