Nice Big House for Large Group

  • 4 of 5

We had an enjoyable stay at the KareBear house. The location is great!! Right near Village; so close to everything!

There were enough beds and bedrooms for all of us with enough linens and towels. Though it would have been nice to have access to a washer and dryer.

The kitchen and dining room are nice and also worked really well for us. It was stocked with all the needed cookware. Just took us a little bit to figure out the broil function on the stove and a couple of more oven mitts would have been nice.

We did have a little trouble with the thermostats and getting it to be the right temperature in the house, but it all worked out in the end.

It was a nice house and it fit our families really well. The side/back yard is huge. It snowed while we were there and the kids (and adults!) had a fun time playing in the snow right there at the house.

The house was a nice big size. The pool table was awesome and got a lot of use! The house has a lot of different hanging out/sitting spaces. We never felt crowded.

Just had a few minor hiccups with the PS3, a glitch with the hot tub, and the karaoke machine didn't work. The property manage did try to bring us charging cords for the PS3 controllers, which ultimately didn't end up being the right cord, it was still nice that he tried. We were able to use the hot tub eventually, which was so enjoyable on the cold nights after a long hard day on the slopes. We never were able to get the karaoke machine working, which wasn't that big of a deal - there was a lot else to do!

The management staff was very responsive and helpful. It was a good experience and we would definitely stay there again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Awesome place to stay as far as being pretty close to everything. The closest mountain to snowboard and ski is Snow Summit and my group had a great time. Nice sized property that allowed us to be somewhat loud and not worry too much about neighbors, at least being inside. A lot of space for people to sleep and have fun. The hot tub was nice and the game room was a good place for everyone to drink and play different team games. Some of us did some karaoke upstairs and watched movies in the down time. All in all, just a great time was shared with a big group of family and friends. Will definitely use their property again if we choose to come out another time. Thanks again!

Great cabin

  • 5 of 5

We were three families and we enjoyed our stay at this cabin. There is the pool table, the spa, the karaoke, and the great big yard where the kids had an amazing time. The managers of the cabin were very nice and helpful.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Perfect stay for our group. Lots of room, plenty of plates, pots, pans, etc. The dining room table was big and perfect for playing board games and gathering for dinner. Kids enjoyed the kareoke machine after a day of skiing and the adults enjoyed the hot tub. No washer/dryer which was a shame as we needed to dry our gloves and pants after hitting the slopes. The lake was a five minute walk and Snow Summit was a five minute drive. Great location. We would definitely return.

Perfect for big families with kids

  • 5 of 5

We just got back after a 4 day trip, it was perfect for our family of 8 adults and 5 kids! Plenty of space for everyone and the backyard was so awesome, probably the biggest I've ever seen! There was no need to go anywhere else for the kids to play in the snow, they could go out multiple times a day to build snow men and sled around.

Also the property manager was extremely responsive, she would get back to me within minutes for anything we needed. Her husband helped with check in and check out and was the nicest person ever. I would recommend this place in a heart beat! Only thing I would point out is if you're planning on doing a lot of cooking maybe bring your own favorite pots and pans as some of them were in rough shape. Definitely not a deal breaker though and we'll definitely be back!
