Wonderful Stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful stay in this house. It was spacious, clean and inviting.

The firepit in the backyard was a bonus.

I would definitely rent this house again in the future.

The only pet peeve is that the first floor bedroom has no curtains and does not provide privacy from the neighbor or people on the driveway. Other than that, it was a great house.

Owner's Response: Hi Charlie, Thanks so much for staying at the house. We are glad you had a great time. There are actually blackout roller shades in the first floor bedroom. They must have been rolled all the way up behind the valance. Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to have you back again in the future.

great location, lots of space and very much enjoyed by our group!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely great time here on our whitewater rafting/hiking weekend! Loved using the grill and firepit and greatly enjoyed all the board games and communal spaces! Plenty of cookware and everything was clean and ready for us on arrival. Directions and instructions for the house couldn't have been easier and the house is in a great location - walking distance to restaurants/cafes/bars/groceries in North Creek and a close drive to lots of outdoor adventure places. We really loved our stay and it easily accommodated our group of 8.

A couple very small things to note for future people staying - we weren't able to locate a grill brush but it could really use a good cleaning (lots of build up from a lot of previous uses), and do be sure to bring your own toiletries if you are arriving late in the evening, the grocery stores close on the early side. While we understood the policy of limited paper towels and toilet paper we do wish there had been a few extra even if built into the cost of the rental - we didn't run out of toilet paper but we wish there had been a couple extra rolls of paper towels (the grocery store was closed by the time we got back from our hike and needed some more!), and I suggest bringing a cooler with some basics from home if you're driving (we came directly on a train from work so weren't able to) so we did end up re-buying all the usual condiments for our bbq. Also the restaurants and grocery stores close on the early side in the evening, so if you're arriving late or doing activities during the day and you're looking to go out to dinner make sure you leave yourself enough time at the end of the day!

All in all a fantastic stay and we will definitely be coming back!!

Really good!

  • 4 of 5

The house was tight and warm and the proximity to the ski area was great. Driveway was a treacherous disaster, though. Not sure why it could not have been salted ahead of our stay.

Great stay at Gore Mountain House!

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a long weekend...3 families (6 adults and 5 kids) and the house worked perfectly for us. Everything was clean when we arrived and the house was just like the pictures show. The kids loved the bunk room and we all had plenty of space to spread out. The location is very convenient to the ski slopes and also close enough to walk to the many downtown restaurants. Thank you for opening up your home to us!

Another great stay at gore mountain house!

  • 5 of 5

We returned to Gore Mountain house once again and loved everything - especially the kitchen update and chalkboard! House was comfortable as usual and we enjoyed our downtime every evening after full days of skiing. We'll be back again.

A very nice property!

  • 4 of 5

We had a large family gathering in town, and this was perfect at a good price for sleeping 12 of us - especially compared to the hotel prices in town. No real complaints at all - comfortable, clean, well maintained, nice backyard firepit - I would recommend!
