Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for allowing us to use your wonderful chalet. The layout is amazing with a beautiful view of the stream through the trees made us dream of glade skiing all night. Not only were the beds the most comfortable VRBO mattresses we’ve had the pleasure of using the chalet, your chalet was wonderfully clean and equipped. We loved it!! I would give it a 9 out of 10. 10 = ski in and ski out.



Thank you again. We will be back!

Perfect for our group in town celebrating a wedding

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our group of 6 (could fit more). We felt like we had our own space while still being able to spend time together in the living room/kitchen area. The creek in the back was beautiful and we even saw some deer. The hosts put such thought into their home and anticipate all your needs. Thank you for letting us stay in your home, we had a wonderful experience.

Quiet, beautiful, comfortable home near town!

  • 5 of 5

I visited in 2017 with friends and we had an incredible time. This home was spacious and beautiful and had everything we needed to cook our meals, spread out with space for everyone and have a comfortable stay! The peaceful setting (with a brook behind the house and chairs to sit and enjoy the sunset) was perfect. It is walking distance (10-15min) to town which was great for ice cream, dinner and shopping.

Thanks so much for sharing your wonderful home!

Great For Families!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at The Birdhouse and it was perfect! The walk to restaurants and shops is short. The house is equipped with everything you could possibly need! The owners always emailed us answers to any questions promptly. It's a great place if you're looking for a little privacy, yet close to town. Everything was very clean and organized. Thank you!!! - Darlene
