Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Extended-family stay for MLK weekend--from 1yo to 50+. House was wonderful. Lots of room including spacious basement. The location was perfect right across from the clubhouse--could leave extra cars there as well as a quick walk to enjoy the amenities. The kitchen was well appointed with all the supplies needed. Living room couch super comfy (I'm trying to buy one for my own house!). Big TV--great place to watch a game. Huge deck--didn't get to enjoy since it was 5 degrees! Chimney Hill is an excellent location for those who want to downhill ski or XC or skate on the pond--should have at least 1 car with 4WD--although this location on the "main" road has better access than most. We had a great time! Thanks Dave!!!

Perfect for our group!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Dave's house in Chimney Hill in early Feb. with my sister and her family and my parents (11 total) and the house was perfect for our group. Loved the open living room and it was larger than it looked in the pictures. Kids had a lot of fun in the basement playing pool and ping pong, and of course, the pool across the street was great after a day of skiing!

The driveway did get very icy and I almost got stuck twice, could use more salt but we made it out! We plan to go back next year...thanks Dave!!

The house was larger than I thought...Dave the owner was very helpfull. Our extended famliy had enough space to spread out yet be close to each other. The back way to mt. snow was very fast!

The hills to the house were steep but maintained well. It was great to be across the street from the club house. This house had it all!

Thank you for a great stay! Your home is lovely. Very comfortable and you can't beat all the amenities!

The kids spent hours in the playroom playing pool, ping pond and darts, while we relaxed and gazed at the star (wow, we've never seen so many stars!) on your great deck.

We also love being able to walk over to go swimming and play tennis.

Best house we've ever rented..We'll be back many times for sure....Summer and Winter!

Thanks again,

The Roberts family
