We were a group of 5 arriving for a convention. The property was as advertised and perfect for what we were looking for. It was clean and cozy and suited us very well. We would happily stay again and am looking forward to a future visit. The shuttle service to Seven Springs worked flwalessly.
Cozy house perfect for a weekend getaway with great shuttle access to the slopes!
This condo was larger than expected and easily could have slept more than10 people. The second bedroom on the first floor has a double bed, a queen bed, and a daybed. The loft had a number of twin beds that makes that area great for kids or teenagers.
The cleanliness of this unit could have been improved. The upstairs bathroom had not been cleaned, which was obvious from the amount of hair in the bathtub. Also, we had to wash almost every utensil in the drawer before using anything. Whoever empties the dishwasher must not look to make sure the items are clean before putting them away. Also, the second bedroom on the first floor was rather dusty. Nothing major, but when we used the Bluetooth speaker we had to move it, which made the amount of dust obvious.
We did have a few other challenges, mainly with the design of the condo. There are a number of sloped ceilings in the bedrooms and even though only a few people in our group are tall, almost everyone hit his/her head at some point. The only bedroom without a sloped ceiling is the master on the 1st floor. Also, since this unit is on the 3rd floor, without an elevator, anyone that can't do stairs frequently will have trouble here. The spiral staircase in the condo was also challenging for some of the group.
Overall, it was a great time and I would stay here again.
