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.

Luxury on the mountain

  • 5 of 5

As a group, we have been coming to Bkue Knob for over 35 years and have stayed at many locations on the mountain. The unanimous consensus was this house was the most well-appointed house we have stayed in over the years! The common spaces provided more than enough space for all to spread out and be comfortable! The kitchen had more than enough space for multiple "chefs" and serving the group meals was a cinch with more than adequate plates, silverware, etc.

The owner's check-in call showing his concern that his guests were happy with the property was something we have not previously experienced in all the places we have stayed previously!

The only uncooperative aspect of the weekend was mother nature warming up too much for a repeat day of enjoyable skiing ☺ but of course the satellite television filled that void as we enjoyed watching Olympic coverage on the large screen television or entertained ourselves with the Wi-Fi connectivity!!

In sum, our experience was very positive and should we squeeze out yet another ski weekend, I know this will definte be a house we seek out to stay!

Fantastic winter getaway with a great location.

  • 5 of 5

We loved our short stay here. The chalet itself is really well appointed and the location is ideal for those hitting the slopes. Be forewarned that you really want a vehicle with 4WD and/or snow tires. The roads have a few steep sections to them that could be tricky in a regular car. Also, the nearest decent grocery and liquor stores are quite a bit away (30+ mins one way) so you'll want to make sure you arrive as fully equipped a possible.

Memorable Ski Weekend

  • 4 of 5

Our extended family and friends enjoyed some frigid skiing this weekend at Blue Knob! The house was wonderful and the layout worked so well for the size and dynamics of our group. The cupboards were well stocked with any needed appliances, dishes, and staples and there was plenty of wood to keep the fireplace going nicely. The directions for operating everything in the home and also checking out were clear and helpful. The only issue we had was difficulty accessing the slopes at the correct location. It was unclear to us, as first-time guests, where to access the lift as there is a road and another row of properties between this home and the slopes. The walk ended up being over 100 yards after a neighbor asked us not to use what we thought was an access road, but turned out to be one of his parking areas. Overall, we had a great stay at this beautiful home and really enjoyed the quality and quantity of the slopes at the resort.
