Guestbook comments from the manager

Lance and Matt - just a quick note to say thank you for the opportunity to stay in your lovely mountain home. It was a great deal of fun and a beautiful place to be. While the ski conditions left a bit to be desired, we did get out on the slopes for a day and actually, for the most part, enjoyed a private mountain with decent snow. It was also nice to be in a place that was well equipped and had many of the luxuries of home. We all truly enjoyed our little getaway.

Amazing accommodations.

Fantastic property with great indoor and outdoor space. Large open floor plan, but with a comfortable, cottage feel. I would highly recommend for any group.

Very nice house ! Enjoyed the stay! The only issue is that the breakers kept tripping so that should be fixed.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

The house was lovely and spacious, the kitchen had everything anyone would need, and the outdoor surroundings were really pretty. The owners were very kind to us and got back quickly with any questions we had.

Our only suggestions were to make the TV easier to control (though honestly, there's so much more to do up there than watch TV), and the beds could be more comfortable. Otherwise, a really excellent stay, a beautiful house, and we had a lovely time.

Great Family Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This house was perfect for our family of 15, ages 2-67. There was plenty of room for group activities or being alone time. The bunk rooms were great for all the cousins who don't get to spend time together due to distance. We were able to make short trips to places we were interested in, such as Bedford and Fort Roberdeau, but for the most part we just enjoyed being together hiking, sitting around the fire pit, and talking. When we ran into a problem, Matt and Bob were quick to solve it. A beautiful house and lovely scenery. Just be sure to put your transmission in 3rd when coming up the mountain!
