About Don Oakes

I'm a Sugarloafer since '66 and and have owned and occasionally rented out this condo since the mid '90s. I rent it out on Holidays and occasional weekends and live in it the rest of the winter. I've taught skiing for Perfect Turn and then the Sugarloaf Ski club for almost 20 years combined. When I'm not skiing, I'm an airline pilot flying the A-330 from Philadelphia to Europe and back.

Don Oakes purchased this condo in 1995

Why Don Oakes chose Sugarloaf

Snowbrook is one of the most desirable locations on the mountain. It is quiet, family friendly and ski in ski out. You can park your car and forget it. I totally renovated the property over the last two years with a new kitchen, master bath, (including heated tile floors and a custom tile steam shower) and all new furniture. It is a clean, comfortable homey condo.

What makes this condo unique

I'm happy to rent to families with well behaved pets at no additional cost.

Fit the bill perfectly

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our 3 children had a lovely 4 night stay at this condo. It was very clean and comfortable and had excellent access to the Snubber lift - just as described. Adults slept in one bedroom, 2 kids in the second bedroom on twin beds and our last kid slept on the pullout sofa.

We brought our food with us, cooked every night and were able to visit the property's pool/hot tub several times with the pass provided. We used the fireplace every night (lots of wood available) and appreciated that the condo had a tv with a dvd player as well as wireless internet access.

Don was exceptional in his communication in advance of our stay, which made the process of renting effortless.

Overall - a nice,cozy two bedroom with all the necessities.

Perfect Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 7 night stay with our family and friends! We have young children, so it was great having easy access to the Snubber lift. We also used the shuttle service, so there was no need to drive anywhere on the mountain. Our children also enjoyed access to the pool/hot tube after a long day of skiing. The facility was clean and our kids enjoyed meeting other children to play with. It was nice at the end of the day to come back to the condo and start a fire. Nothing is like a wood burning fire! We also appreciated Don's updated furniture. The couch/ chair was very comfortable and cozy! We did use the pull -out sofa and that was comfortable too!

Overall, this was a perfect condo to rent for the week. I appreciated Don checking in with us during our stay to see if we needed anything and he also quickly returned our security deposited. Thanks Don! Hope to rent again in the future.

Great location! Very comfy!

  • 5 of 5

This past week in January is the second time we have stayed in Don's condo. The location is perfect..a very short downhill run to Snubber and then the whole mountain is yours! The shuttle also runs nearby and often. The condo itself has been renovated and is really comfortable! We had 4 adults a 7 yr old and 3 dogs and it was great. There are all the amenities you could want ...steam shower, big fridge with condiments and normal fridge items. Also salt, pepper, paper goods. Things that are nice to find if you arrive and realize you didn't bring any of those things. Our grandson was crazy bout the pool and hot tub. All in all a great place to be and Don is available to help in any way!

Perfect pet-friendly vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the condo during a week of sub-zero temperatures, and it was cozy and comfortable for us, three kids, and a dog. The condo is clean and had everything we needed, and Don's instructions are thorough and clear. Don went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that we had a good stay. The access to the mountain is easy, and we definitely hope to come and stay again. Highly recommended!

Fantastic family friendly (as well as dog)

  • 5 of 5

From the moment of inquiry, Don made the entire process a fantastic experience for our family. He was very helpful with questions as well as recommendations. The accommodations were everything we had hoped for plus more. From the dog friendly complex, to accessibility to the lifts, this was truly a fantastic spot for our whole family. The condo itself is not your typical rental. It is evident that this is a second home for the owner, and he takes great pride in maintaining and enhancing it. We loved the steam shower after some frigid skiing conditions. We enjoyed playing games in front of the fire while watching some great skiing blue rays that the owner has for entertainment. We had friends in another condo complex up there the same wknd, and it is safe to say it did not even compete with how much nicer Dons is. Not to mention the personal attention you receive from renting from a gentleman who take pride in making sure the renters are 100% happy.

Owner Thought of Everything

  • 5 of 5

Don anticipated our every need, and provided for it ahead of time. Immaculate condo with clean sheets, towels, and kitchen well stocked with plates, glasses and silver ware. Short walk to the ski lift, plenty of firewood. When it was time for dinner, the family had to shout from the den to coax me out of the new luxurious master shower. Thanks for everything Don, we'll be back next year.

Sugarloaf USA has some of the best skiing and riding in the East. Over 2800' of vertical drop ranging from the famously steep Snowfields to the friendly 3 1/2 mile long Tote Road trail. The condo is just yards away from miles and miles of groomed cross-country ski and snowshoe trails.

After your day outdoors enjoy a soak in one of Snowbrook's 3 hot tubs or a swim in the beautiful indoor swimming pool. Ice skating is available at the nearby Outdoor center. Rock climbing wall , indoor skate boarding park and trampolines await the adventurous at the Antigravity Center just off the access road.
