Beautiful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

I was quite pleased with my stay in this property. All I needed was my clothes and food! Very comfortable. Loved the mini library, Roku, fireplace, and the little extras I was welcome to use, if needed ( food, alcohol, etc) The owner, Ben, was very easy to work with and did everything to ensure my stay was pleasurable! Will definitely go back!

Returning traveler - everything was perfect...again

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Ben for another pleasant stay at your condo. It's our "go-to-condo" when we visit Blue Knob. It's nicely appointed, very clean, and perfectly located. I read the review about the woman who claimed "animal hair" and I have to report, I did not find that at all! Both my son and husband are allergic to cats, and when we first stayed at Ben's I had an initial concern when I saw a family photo of a cat, but neither my son or husband had any allergy issues while staying at the condo, I found no traces that pets had been present. It's a very clean and well maintained condo.

Ruined week of ski trip

  • 1 of 5

The Property was full of animal hair I don't know it was either dog hair or the cat's I assume it is cat's hair since the owner has cat's picture on night table. My son who has allergy got so sick and he could not ski whole time we were there because he had to take allergy medicine and that made him very sleepy and because of him being so sick I did't get to ski entire time we were there even though we both have season pass. Even though we had the place for 1week we left early first 2 nights my son slept in the room with high bed but rest of stay he slept on recliner jacket over him because that blankets, thews or the quilt all was cover with animal hair. we could not set on sofa either. My son only gets to ski during the Christmas

break and I rent a house by the ski resort for week and buy season pass for it and we both enjoy skiing for that whole week but this ski season we didn't get to ski we suffer due to the animal hair and waisted whole lot of money. also skiing during Christmas Break is my son's Birthday Present and Christmas Present combined for last 10 years.

The property needs to be free of Animal hair!

I don't feel like give any star at all but the site won't let me

Owner's Response: We were very sorry to hear about Debbie’s experience with our condo. She did not reach out at the time with any issues at all, had she done so we would have done our to address any issues, found suitable alternative accommondations or provided a suitable refund if need. In the past, some renters have contacted us in advance about allergies or other sensitivities and we have done what we can to prep the condo for their needs. As mentioned in our listing, we are a pet-friendly renter. We clean the condo thoroughly between every rental and all bedding (blankets, comforters, quilts and throw rugs) had been laundered a few weeks prior to Debbie’s visit (actually the comforter on that bed was brand new and no one had been in the unit since the last blanket cleaning). Additionally, we had just replaced all of the bed pillows in the condo with allergen reducing bed pillows to better serve renters with sensitivities and our pillows and mattresses are "bagged" with hypoallergentic covers. Our flooirng is all hard surfaces (tile and hardwood which is mopped between every renter. Still, despite our efforts, some pet hair or dander may remain. If someone with severe animal allergies is looking to rent in Blue Knob, we will gladly make a referral to other condo owners we know who maintain well equipped and well cared for pet-free units.

Very peaceful stay

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at the condo this weekend! The kitchen was well equipped and there was everything we needed to have a comfortable stay. Ben was a great host and a thorough communicator. The only small disappointment was the pool area was closed due to vandalism. But overall it was a very nice stay.

Very nice experience

  • 5 of 5

The condo was pretty much as described. Used it as a home base for day trips. Very nicely furnished. Didn't get to use the fireplace as it was unseasonably warm. Was not expecting the dramatic scenery on the drive up the hill, very beautiful. Had a great time. We can see coming back when there is snow on the ground.

Great Mountain Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great condo to enjoy a weekend out of town! The email Ben sent with the information to check in was very helpful and he offered to have a fire waiting for us when we checked in! The condo was very cozy and comfortable and had everything we needed in it. We took advantage of the hiking around the golf course and mountain and the food at the Bar and Grill was very good. I highly recommend staying at this condo for a great Blue Knob vacation!
