BUILDING, PARKING, and CONDO LAYOUT:
There are no buildings in front of our spectacular views. Our entry door is on the ground floor (the upstairs units are loft units), in an intimate 8 unit building. Our East Rim building facades recently recieved a warm exterior make-over, with stack stone corner columns and distressed metal surround. Parking is right in front of the building (and directly across from the lodge) for one vehicle, others go in open ski parking. Offering genuine mountain ambiance without "the hotel feel", our building is recessed about 14 steps down from street level. The exterior building steps have handrails on both sides. The courtyard is covered, and features a picnic table and ski lockers.
Our balcony and patio have 3 full sides open, offering impressive Needles Mountains views, and Twilight Lake views as well. Both have outdoor wicker seating (our balcony is fully covered, winter will be impacted by snow). The patio has a loveseat swing and stackable chairs, and the balcony has a stainless Weber propane BBQ, and Pier 1 counter height dining for 4.
The upstairs is the main living level with the living room, a wood burning fireplace, a full kitchen with granite counter and stainless appliances including a bottom freezer fridge, the dining for 8, and a full bathroom off the entry area. The entry area is tiled for removing boots and shoes, and it's easy to access the beautiful gold travetine bathroom from the entry. Our living area features a full and loveseat leather sofa, and a queen sleeper sofa in front of the magnificent mountain views. A smart TV is above the mantle on the stone fireplace. The dining table for 8 is counter height, with new pecan leather dining chairs and the beautiful drum chandelier. The kitchen features a bottom freezer fridge made in the USA by maytag, and cabinets that have all the pots, pans, and accessories you'll need for cooking. There is a standard Keurig available, as well as a Cuisinart drip machine, and a stainless crock pot.

Our full-width stairs with landing are standard width with carpet and a hand rail. There are 2 fully private bedrooms, and 1 small semi-private bunk-bed area, a patio, and 1 full bathroom. All downstairs floors except the travertine bathroom are beautiful distressed hickory. The small bunk area is at the foot of the stairs, separated by a velvet curtain, and is well appointed for children with a window and a dresser. The bottom bunk is sturdy enough for an adult if needed.
