With all the madness going on it was nice to pack up and take our boys away for a few days. Cabin has wifi so they could still attend school. We had a wonderful time.... The Gil Family

The cabin is spacious, cozy and excellent for a small family stay. The snow came in our second night and we were able to play in the backyard and even do some light sledding. Everything worked well and the washer/dryer was very convenient. Would recommend and would love to stay again.

Only issue is the provided snow shovel was cracked so it made the chore a bit difficult, but otherwise, we had a great time.
Manager response:
Hi, Terry! We are so delighted you enjoyed your stay! We have replaced the snow shovel and appreciate having the crack brought to our attention. We hope to see you again!

Pros: We did like the cozy feeling of the home. Had a nice patio that came with a small bbq which was nice. Kitchen was well stocked. Couches we comfy. The shower had excellent water pressure and never got cold.
Cons: no heater for the bedrooms only for the living room and kitchen. the posting on HomeAway for the house said 2 bathrooms with a shower icon, however it’s a 1.5 bath. Only one shower
Manager response:
Thank you for telling us about your stay! We apologize for any confusion about the number of showers available and will change our listing to more accurately reflect this. We do have space heaters available for our guests upon request. We hope to see you again!

My husband and 2 daughter's spent a wonderful weekend here. Clean and comfortable cabin! Washer/Dryer was useful. Beautiful views from deck! The only thing missing was a can opener, if you plan on preparing meals. Close to resorts and snow play, where we enjoyed the day tubing down the hill.
