This was a perfect home for a large family of 8 and our poodle. There was plenty of room for the children to play in the loft and the adults to enjoy the down stairs. The kitchen was well stocked for preparing large dinners. The beds were very comfortable. We enjoyed the yard, the area. There was not much snow, but enough for the teens to ski at Boreal. The rest of the family enjoy hiking. The whole family a great walk around the neighborhood.

This place is pretty cheap compared to other cabins, but I guess it comes with the flaws.

Giving it a 3 star as the price is decent and the living can be spacious.

This place was pretty dirty upon arrival. The living carpet had a lot of stains making it uncomfortable to walk around in bare feet and to sit on. The thermostat was missing batteries so we couldn't use it for a while until we found AA batteries in a flashlight. The blinds in the living room were missing some blinders or some of them fell off and placed on the side. Half of the towels had stains and some had red stains. The bed sheets had stains and some of the bed frames were broken.

I suggest get a bigger tv or simply just remove the tv. It's so small that where you're sitting and the quality of the pixels will only hurt your eyes.

Staff members weren't able to accommodate a 1hr later checkout (12pm), and insist I pay an additional $75 to have a later checkout of 7pm.

Location was good, and centralized.

This was not my first time renting with Vacasa as I had a very good first experience. But pretty sure this is my last time renting this cabin.

All I can say is WOW! This home is stunning and the pictures do not do it justice. It's much more spacious then the pictures show. Everything is decorated nicely, it has a warm and cozy feel. It fit our family perfectly. The deck outside and the views from the giant windows were perfect. The beds were comfortable and they had a huge supply of blankets, pillows and everything you could ever need or want in the kitchen. It was stocked extremely well. The neighborhood was quiet and felt private even though there are homes next door. This place was clean and inviting and I would absolutely recommend it to anyone with a large group. We had a wonderful pre - thanksgiving with out family. Thank you for allowing us to share your home and create some amazing memories.

Pros -
- Great open living space with front and back decks and an upstairs game room for visiting.

- Big open kitchen with all the items you would need for cooking

- Great location near the pool and market

- An extensive movie and video game collection for the kids

- One bedroom is connected to the master bedroom in a weird railroad layout that has you walking through an open bathroom to get there. This only works if one family is sharing both bedrooms.

- The house has lovely large windows, but they are only partly covered in the bedrooms. One bedroom has no window coverings at all. This is a problem if you need the room to be completely dark when you sleep or don't want the light to wake you up in the morning.

- In the summer, the upstairs bedroom is really hot because it absorbs all the afternoon sun. They've installed a ceiling fan, but I ended up having to a downstairs bedroom in the middle of the night because it was too hot up there to sleep.
