I brought a team of teenage girls to this home. It was such a perfect fit for us. The number of rooms and bathrooms made this home so easy for us to spend the days relaxing and nights sleeping. Definitely great for a big group!

This is a huge home with 2 full kitchens so it was great for our large group. It was great to see all of the games available which made for some really fun time spent by the fire with hot chocolate. We would definitely stay here again. We couldn't immediately find the guest passes (hanging in plain sight, of course) and the local team responded immediately to assist. Great customer service as well.

We loved the size and location of the house. Great towels and bedding. But we felt the carpeting on main floor was very dirty and worn. We also would have liked an owner’s manual that gave household instructions.
Manager response:
We are happy o hear that you enjoyed your stay! We will make the local housekeeping staff aware of the floor. We will also pass along your other feedback. Thank you for your feedback!

This is one of the best houses we've rented. We were a group of 6 families and this 7 bedroom, 4 bathroom house was perfect for us. There's a separate game room with foosball and a bunch of board games to keep the kids busy. We had all that we needed to make ourselves comfortable. The two dining tables accommodated all of us for lunch/dinner. There was a lot of snow around the house to enjoy. Overall a wonderful stay!

Needs updated kitchen supplies. Also a larger table would be nice for the size of the house. All in all I would stay here again.

Nice large house but definitely had some cleanliness issues and needed fans for the July heat.
Manager response:
The carpet has recently received a cleaning, and we have followed-up with our housekeeping team. Thank you!

This home exceeded our expectations. It had a few lives in areas, but was found to be very clean. The only other negative was it has MANY steps! I wasn’t expecting so many!

It was very spacious and had everything we needed. I'm very appreciative of the home and it really made for a great trip. Would definitely book again

House is big and spacious it can accommodate a lot of people , area is beautiful,
the house has one heater, and if you are comfortable upstairs, downstairs you can't breathe how hot it gets. Kitchen needs updating,
it would be nice to have a pool table and an outdoor jacuzzi.
Would have been nice to have cable downstairs for the kids.
Manager response:
We are sorry to see this guest was uncomfortable. If guests keep the fan running it will better circulate the air so the downstairs does not get overheated. Use of the fireplace will also prevent this. The downstairs TV is meant for gaming and DVDs; the owner has no plans to get cable at this time. Thanks!

The living room and downstairs living room are absolutely huge. the main living room has massively high ceilings and is extremely spacious. There are 2 kitchens, 1 upstairs and 1 down. There are tons of seating for dining and board games. There is a loft area reachable by a ladder that the kids loved. The house is big enough to be a pretty complex so the kids absolutely love it. There are tons of firewood available for the fireplace etc. The downstairs areas are slightly less well furnished though and there was a lack of toilet paper and towels. There are also small things like there being no curtains in the bunk bed room so the kids all wake up extra early. Overall still a really great and spacious place.

Stayed here for annual get together. Great location, and we were lucky enough to have gone right after a storm so there was plenty of snow. Best part was that we didn’t have to leave for the kids to play in the snow. The house is very spacious with three levels, a wood burning firellace in the main living room, and a big game rolm downstairs (however, i felt like the cabinets could fall over anytime). The management staff was great to work with too. We would definately stay here again.

Several minor things that the owners could do/fix that would have made our stay more seamless.

1) The refrigerators (upstairs and downstairs) had issues. Upstairs fridge wasnt cool enough so we moved some things to the lower level refrigerator which froze an entire gallon of milk overnight.

2) Dishwasher would tip foward if you had both top and bottom rack out. Could be fixed with just a few screws.

3) Upstairs bathroom had lincoln log as toilet roll holder, and it fell down whenever you tried to get tissue.

4) Leak/drip coming down from ceiling in the middle of the master bedroom

Yes, I would recommend this property. My family had a great time. We will definitely book again!
Pros: Very spacious house, 2 Kitchens, 2 Living rooms, big backyard, kids enjoyed the game room.
Cons: the lower floor needs to be upgraded, a few items need to be looked at or replaced.
Recommend to bring: Your own pillows, blankets (to be more comfortable) towels, a computer or two, hdmi cable, xbone/ps4. Although the main TV has cable, we utilized my ps4 more for movies and shows on hulu, netflix, and amazon prime. The downstairs tv does not have cable and an extra electronic device would be great to have for that. Bring big garbage bags, that saved us. bring a speaker for music and if you have any games, bring them, my family was happy just playing games and having a good time.
