We rented this home for a ski weekend. The driveway up was slippery given all the recent snow. Our 2-wheel drive could not make it up the driveway and we parked at the bottom of the driveway and walked our luggage up the slope to the house. The house is spacious and clean, which we appreciated. One thing is the heating was really lop-sided. Two rooms in the house seemed to get no heat, while the central living space and one bedroom on the main floor got all the heat. So two families froze and the third family cooked in the third bedroom. You also have to drive about 3 miles away to pick up and drop off the keys. So if you plan on getting skiing done the day you check out, you have to factor in the extra drive time to drop off the keys. Overall, we had a decent stay. The house doesn't come with large TV or other frills, but it is clean. Just keep in mind the considerations noted above during your stay.
We brought together 10 of our friends for a weekend of skiing at Squaw. There weren't many reviews, so we were a little anxious, but when we arrived at the property, we were more than happy with the cabin. There was enough space for all of us, and the cabin is very conveniently located. The management company was quite professional and instructions on what to do upon leaving were quite clear and simple. The cabin was clean and comes with a lot of dishes. We had to hunt a bit for the towels and some of the other things. We would definitely consider staying here again if we had a group under 10 people.
A few things to note:
1) Contrary to the description, there was WiFi / Internet at the cabin
2) There is only one garage spot available, and it's not terribly large and is a bit of a pain to access
3) There are 3 bedrooms with queen size beds, 1 bedroom with 2 twins, a folding couch thing in the open space on the top floor, and a large couch in the main living area. 10 people fit fine
4) There was a $50 fee for early check-in before 4pm (and the same fee if you want a late check-out after 12); unfortunately, you only know if you can do an early check-in a few days before your reservation.
