spacious yet cozy

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful time at the Day's Mt. Retreat. A little bit further than expected from sugar, but it was nice to be isolated. Lady in charge is so kind, and even mailed back a jacket left there that was found by the cleaning lady. Definitely recommend, and would stay there again.

Awesome place to vacay!

  • 5 of 5

After a little trouble getting to the property due to snow and icy roads (I recommend a 4-wheel drive), we had an amazing time! Sledding, hiking and just relaxing in the mountains. The house had everything we needed to cook some meals and enjoy some down time. On the last morning we were visited by some friendly deer just outside our door, so that was a great way to end a fantastic trip! Thanks for having us!

Cozy but big

  • 4 of 5

We had fun on the property with nature walks, but it was 30 minutes from the nearest grocery store. Loved the pool table, but if the picnic table on the deck was replaced with a jacuzzi, would have made a better experience.

Owner's Response: I am so glad you enjoyed yourself! Yes the store is about 20 to 30 minutes away, you are in the mountains! On the VRBO Web Site it does tell you all that information. As far as the hot tub, there is so much maintenance and you have to strengthen the porch, no matter which porch to hold a hot tub and we have elected not to do this. but thank you for the suggestion. We look forward to serving you again in the future!!

Thanksgiving Reunion

  • 5 of 5

We had such a good time at our family reunion up on Powder Horn. The house was big enough for 21 people to have a yummy Thanksgiving dinner. Glad that they weren't all staying there, it would have been very crowded. My kids and grandkids loved all of the trails and outdoor stuff. Didn't have any problems with the house at all. Only problem that I can say is there just isn't enough light in the master bedroom. Could hardly see many times in all areas. Loved the fireplace and the decks were relaxing swinging and just enjoying the woods. Saw a huge herd of wild turkeys. No deer by us but some in other areas. Basement with ping pong was popular. Just a little cold down there for me. All in all it was great and would do it again if I get the chance.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your review of Day's Mt. Retreat! I am so glad you enjoyed yourself. We had a new fan with lights installed about a month ago for more light, it is still dark? I am also glad you enjoyed the game room, there is a heater down there that will heat that room in minutes, because it does get chilly down there. I look forward to hearing from you again, and Thank you

place was excellent . my family and I enjoyed the house. fireplace was out of order and would have been nice but still overall a great place to stay in. really enjoyed the trail down to the creek as well. didn't know about the club house or how to get there, maybe needed directions. the upstairs tv needs to be on separate receiver but not a big deal. overall an excellent place and we will try it again soon.

Owner's Response: I am so sorry about the fireplace. We just came into colder weather and one of the quests used the fireplace and my property manager noticed a problem. So l did not want a major problem. I am so glad you had a good time We are always trying to improve on our quest experience at Day's Mt. Retreat! Thank you so much
