Full Sugar Bowl views from Schull Lodge at Sugar Bowl Gondola

Amazing location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful views, huge great room with huge windows, plenty of parking, and all within walking distance to Sugar Bowl. We had 11 adults, 1 toddler, and 2 infants and we fit in the house just fine. Everyone had a bed but spent most of our time hanging out with a fire and amazing views of the slopes and snow.

A few minor things about the house could use attention (DVD player didn't work for all dvds, cabinet door hinge was broken in kitchen and heat is somewhat inconsistent throughout the house) but nothing that changed our love for the house and the stay.

Easy to work with owners and great overall stay. We will definitely look to Schull Lodge in the future for our family ski trips.

Great rental for large party close to the slopes

  • 5 of 5

This rental was perfect for us. It's spacious, clean and convenient with awesome views. We had six families, all with kids, and it never felt crowded. Living areas and kitchen are wide open with plenty of room for everyone to work, play, sit. Ample number of bedrooms spaced out throughout the house. Hot tub with the gorgeous snowy mountains as backdrop was special. We had an issue w/the water heater, but Sidney addressed that quickly after my phone call. Walking distance to Sugar Bowl. The parking area in front of the house got crowded from Sugar Bowl spill over, but it wasn't really an issue for us. Overall, great stay with great communication from the owner. We would love to come back again.

Worst Experience !!Don't Risk Your Life

  • 1 of 5

Stayed in this rental this time...had the worst experience with this one!first of all we were 5 five families,it was big enough to house us all but the rooms had spider webs and no heater vents,secondly the kitchen was not well equipped ,we had a incident with the gas stove which started leaking in the mid of the night it was a serious scare! No WiFi at all we had 6 people who had to work from home that day but the WiFi problem forced them to take an off which is a lose of pay.The heating was so absurd that it was suffocating at different levels and one of our friend was almost unconscious ,some serious plumbing problem in house as bathroom was chocked and also there is not enough hot water.

I wouldn't recommend this house to anyone with family with such costly accommodation ,very bad services ,facilities and risk of iife!!

Beautiful House!

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful space and setting. This was my second time renting Schull Lodge. It is a great space, especially for a large group. Not only is the house extremely comfortable, but there is lovely hiking near by.
