Great value on first floor condo on the mountain at Blue Knob.

  • 5 of 5

Ben's condo at the Blue Knob resort was well-equipped, convenient, tidy and clean, and included a fireplace already set up with starter logs and stacked wood. Nice wooded view from the small screened-in balcony/porch, where a good supply of firewood was stacked. Great floor plan and multiple temperature controls throughout. Ben and his wife are generous hosts! Thanks for the Merlot and the cozy fireplace! The condo maintenance team was very prompt: we got about 6 inches of snow overnight, and by the morning, the privates roads, parking lot, and walkway to our condo had been cleared. Ben's place is a nice and affordable get-away for all-seasons.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time in the mountains of central Pa. The condo had everything we could hope for and more. We enjoyed the fireplace, shuttle service to lodge, all the amenities for cooking our meals and comfy beds to rest on at night. Thank you for a great memory!

Shhhh, don't tell anyone.

  • 5 of 5

I hesitated in writing a great review, because now I'm afraid everyone else will find out about the best condo at Blue Knob! The photos don't do justice to this nice gem. It's very nicely appointed, super clean, comfy beds, and configured in a way to make the most of the limited space. Ben thought of everything when preparing the condo for our visit, honestly, I couldn't find one thing that was missing. Plus, it's in the most convenient location, the shuttle bus that runs up the mountain to the slopes, stops right out front! Great job Ben! Looking forward to returning.

Blue Knob Getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The space was small, but still adequate and as promised. One room has a queen bed that is high off of the ground. Anyone with any limited mobility or small childeren may have an issue, but we did not find it to be a negative.

The condo is very accessible, and easy to load and unload luggage, etc.

The condo was very clean, and the owner's preparations and hospitality were excellent. The fireplace was set and loaded to go for us when we arrived! The unit was nicely appointed with all of the basic necessities. Heat and Water pressure were good. I would definitely recommend this unit!

Repeat Renter

  • 5 of 5

The condo is cozy, comfortable, and complete. You will not be able to need or want anything during your stay. When you walk in, there are warm throws on the couch in front of a waiting fire - just light it - and enjoy the bottle of wine that you are invited to open. Ben is amazing to work with. He is very prompt in his replies and goes overboard to help make your stay better, if that's even possible. I'll be back again.
