Top Notch Everything!

  • 5 of 5

Every detail from bedding and bath to kitchen equipment and decor was high end. The staff was responsive to needs. Supplies were plentiful. Lot's of privacy and sleeping options for 4 families. We would have loved to brought our dogs along to walk the trails with us, but I understand the added issues that can bring to a rental property. Don't hesitate if you're thinking of renting this place. We hope to go back.

Great Accomodations for a large group!

  • 5 of 5

Three families shared the Machine Shed for a ski weekend at Granite Peak. Elaine was very helpful in answering all of my questions before we arrived. The layout of the place was perfect, and the house was very clean. Each couple got their own room and bathroom and the kids had their own wing and bathroom. The main living space is huge. It was to have the big space because we had different small groups doing different things - some played pool, some played Xbox, some played games, and others just sat and talked. Even though we were all in the same space, it never seemed loud - just very cozy! Also, we actually sat all 15 of us for dinner at the same time. We will definitely be back next year! The kids all want to come back in the summer too so they can explore the grounds more! Thanks for a great weekend!

Great Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The place was great! Plenty of room, had 12 people and not crowded at all. Each room had bathrooms with showers which had soap, conditioner and shampoo dispensers and there were plenty of towels. Plan to come back again next year.

This rental was a great size for our large group of college friends/families. Having separate bathrooms was very nice! It was a great distance from Granite Peak ski hill and the we were able to utilize the trails around the property to go snowshoeing. I would highly recommend...we well be looking to repeat!

Large group house, great for get togethers!

  • 4 of 5

The house and property are in excellent condition and will provide your family or group of friends a great place to hangout and relax. We went in the winter so we could not enjoy the outdoor equipment, but found the large main room held us quite comfortably. If I had to complain about anything, it would be that my bed was rock hard, but everybody has their own preference. I would stay here again.

Beautiful! Just what our group was looking for!

  • 5 of 5

We shared the Machine Shed with 2 other families during Christmas break. We were up there to ski at Granite Peak. It was a 30-minute drive to the mountain, so not too bad! The place was great...plenty of space for our 3 families and beautifully equipped too! It was so nice to have a bathroom for each family, so there was never anyone waiting to use the shower. The fireplace was fantastic after a day of skiing! The whole place was decorated so nice and we all felt very much at home. I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to share with other families!
