Reviewer Comments:

The best word to describe this place is 'cozy.' We loved the real, wood-burning fire place. The only issues were that the grill was in bad shape - the heat was not consistently distributed, so the chicken wouldn't cook, so we ended up cooking it in the oven. There were a few cleaning issues such as - the cutting boards were crusted with food and there were crumbs all over the kitchen island chairs. Also, prior guests left their dirty baby's diapers on the deck (housekeeper didn't see them because it snowed on top of them). Otherwise, it was a great rental!

Nice place to stay and very quiet. t must really be nice in the winter as it is close to the ski places. My grandsons loved the pool and the loft they slept in. Property was very well maintained.

Reviewer Comments:

Great location close to all of the area attractions.Resort was great for the kids. In addition to swimming pool they had sports equipment room to use tennis rackets,minature golf, volley ball, etc... Cabin was well stocked with dishes, cooking pans, even a slow cooker. My only complaint was there was a Keurig for coffee instead of a coffee pot and we did not plan for that. Our cabin was also missing the swing that many of the other cabins had.

Reviewer Comments:

The cabin said it could sleep 7, but the living room was too tight to pull out sleeper sofa. We tried to just put the mattress on the floor, but the mattress was too bad to sleep on.
