Cozy haven in the woods

  • 5 of 5

Loved our stay! The house was great and very well stocked. Loved having the Schuss pool within walking distance, and the Summit pools were only 10 minutes away by car. We enjoyed walks up and down Rue de Montagne and Rue to Ouvert with our dog; the neighborhood was quiet and peaceful. The back deck was great for reading and watching golfers go by. Perfect for our young family. Thank you!

Very nice house! Great location, very peaceful and private. Comfortably accommodated 7 adults and a child, with a queen size sofa bed to spare. Great layout with lots of comfortable livingroom seating and dining seating. Excellently equipped kitchen. Plenty of towels, pillows and extra blankets. Master bedroom was great with beautiful views, hot tub, sauna and really comfortable king bed. Lots of parking. We enjoyed the fireplace and outdoor fire pit, went tubing and had fun in the resort's outdoor pool. Owner, Debbie, was very accommodating and great to work with. We did a lot of research choosing this house and believe it's a great deal for everything it offers.

Nice House, Great Location

  • 4 of 5

This is the second year we have stayed at this house while skiing at Schuss. It has plenty of space for 2 families. We like the private location yet it is still only a minute or two from the slopes by car. Upon arriving, we had a couple questions re the hot tub and fireplace. The owner was able to help us with these very quickly. We would definitely stay here again.

A great ski weekend, great location!

  • 5 of 5

What a great weekend at Schuss Mountain. This house was VERY well equipped, clean and the location was perfect. 30 second drive to the lifts, but yet secluded and private. Right next to the snowmobiling trail, and the garage was the perfect area to dump skis, poles, helmets, boots and other gear.

We had a little issue trying to get the fireplace started, but probably operator error, nothing wrong with the equipment. The house was warm. cozy, and inviting. Great for a weekend getaway with or without the kids. We would stay there again.
