This little cabin was so cute to spend Thanksgiving at! The location is great. We were able to spend some time in the town, enjoy the snow at the slope and also go hiking. It was a good size for 2 people and 2 small pups. If you plan on going in the winter make sure you pack warm! The 2 HVACs do help keep the place warm but you have to put them up to 85 bc you lose a lot of heat with the floor to ceiling windows lining the house. Also if you’re picky w linens and pillows you may want to bring your own. Otherwise this place is awesome!

This little hideaway was perfectly located right next to the slopes and still felt private. 2 people fit comfortably, any more would not. It would be nice if they left instructions for how to turn on the janky fireplace as we had to have the property manager come fiddle with it until he got it going. Also annoying that they make you download the app to get all important info rather than leaving anything in the actual house to reference, like WiFi info. Don't plan on cooking anything other than frozen pizza since no oven safe dishes are provided. Our sink was clogged and didn't drain the whole weekend. No bath soap, shampoo or conditioner provided. Our biggest issue was the lack of cleanliness. Since pets are allowed, there was dog hair in all the carpet and on the furniture, clearly hadn't been deep cleaned in a while. We enjoyed our stay, but probably won't be back.
Manager response:
Thank you for your feedback, Claire. Our lead housekeeper is scheduling a deep clean, and they will be sure to focus on the items you have brought to our attention. An inspection will be scheduled between each reservation as well. Maintenance is taking care of the sink drains, typing up fireplace instructions, and checking for any other maintenance concerns. Oven-safe dishes have been purchased, and we are hoping to get a new vacuum soon as well. We hope to see you again!

We especially enjoyed the views of the fall colors from the many windows of this octagonal cabin. The furniture, drapes, shower curtain and flooring are new and tasteful. Two new mini-split HVACs service the cabin, but the one in the bedroom didn’t work and probably just needs some adjustment. The most significant drawback to the cabin is the broken set of stair rails and the decaying steps leading to the cabin. You need to be sure footed to access the cabin, which we are, so we managed without a problem, but this would not be a good choice for anyone who has any mobility issues.

Being outdoors but if you have any leg, hip or breathing issues this is not a place for you.
Manager response:
Anne, we deeply regret the issues experienced as we intend for our guests to enjoy their stay! Thank you for notifying us, allowing our local staff to work to remedy the situation. We genuinely hope the compensation offered shows our desire to care for our guests. We have a plethora of homes to choose from and hope to host you again for a more pleasant experience!

Super cute and funtional. Great location for skiers. Definately will stay again.
Justin B. Aug 2021
Cabin is located directly on the slope. Location is 5 stars. Cabin could of been better supplied. Only one trash bag, no coffee filters, and minimal dishes and silverware. Also, the grounds are messy and need general maintenance. There was a pile of rubbish just below our unit that can cause a safety issue and just looked trashy. Overall. I would stay here again.
Manager response:
We are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We will be sure to pass your suggestions along to our local manager who will work with our homeowner to make necessary upgrades. We look forward to hosting you again!

Tiny yet perfect place for 2. Well decorated and cosy. Close to lots of places to explore.
Laura C. Feb 2021
This spot was perfect for what we needed. House is dated, but for skiing, the house was great. We could literally walk to the slope (20-30 steps away). Would definitely stay again.
Jordan O. Feb 2021
We have stayed here a few times now. We like the location of the place, good view as a top unit, close to the stairs for moving our items from the vehicle. Obviously all of these units are aged which is fine. The knob on the oven still has no numbers so you estimate. Great new floors and paint since we stayed last. The main bed is still an old mattress we assume or the frame needs more work. With all the rentals and how cheap mattresses are I would assume this could be replaced. The new couch is comfortable but its a futon which the Vacasa Ap indicated a queen sleeper sofa. Either way it was ok after skiing all day. We always come back to Suger but may look at other units to compare.

Keri S. Nov 2020
The location of this property is perfect. As far as the quality of the house it is very very outdated. There are barely any lights, the nob to the oven has no numbers on it to show the degrees because they are wore off so you had no idea what you were setting the oven at, the bed is super old and the toilet is not in the best condition either it broke on us and we had to manually flush the toilet. We read some reviews about the property and I’m so glad that we did bring our own sheets.
Manager response:
We appreciate your feedback, Keri! Thank you for telling us about your stay. The toilet has been completely reinstalled, and we will check the oven knobs. Thank you!
Carlos R. Aug 2020
There was no a/c only a tiny fan, it was dirty, barely any lights and a bad smell. It says it has wifi but the connections is very very poor. Very thin walls We could hear everything. Neighbors had a party at quiet hours and also very little assistance or communication. There needs to be some serious remodeling, we got lucky with only paying for 1 night, for the price you’re better off at a near by hotel.
Manager response:
Hi, Carlos! Thank you for staying with us and sharing your review. This home has been redone since your stay so there are new floors, new furniture, and a new toilet. We do apologize for the lack of support due to the area being short-staffed; this has been addressed, and we have put up signs reminding guests about quiet hours and general noise levels. We hope to see you again!

Ski in and out was a breeze! Unit was great for what we needed! A little outdated but clean and functional for the price. Perfect location for skiing! Had everything we needed. I would suggest bringing your own blanket for the sleeper sofa!
Vacasa made it easy... self check in!
Manager response:
Thank you for sharing your feedback, Jenna! We are glad you enjoyed your stay. We appreciate you letting us know there is room for improvement, and we'll pass your suggestions to the owner for consideration. We hope to have another chance to impress you in the future!

We LOVED our stay at this little house! Such a cool place. I can’t emphasize the convenience enough for skiing. We literally skied out the back door. It’s also just a couple houses up from the lodge. It’s older place, so don’t expect new appliances etc...but that didn’t bother us.
Ronald T. Feb 2020
Cute one bedroom. The kitchen is very small but has everything you need to cook. The place could use updating but other than that it was good for us.
Manager response:
Hi Ronald, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. We appreciate your feedback as we continue to make updates and improvements to our home. We hope to host you again soon!

Very close to slope for ski-in and Ski-out
