"This is our 4th straight pre-xmas skiing trip with good friends: 4 adults, 4 boys between 10-16. After 4 years, this was the best house! Some of the details (+ = positive, - = negative, <> = neutral)
Overall - we loved it and would look forward to returning! Hope the review helps optimize your stay, but as you can see, not a ton to improve!
Thanks to the hosts for letting us enjoy your house...
+ Very well outfitted! Lots of great kitchen goodies, including french press, good food processor, pots, pans, glasses, coffee mugs, even shot glasses and snifters!
+ Fancy Wolf oven, it works like a regular oven, but it's serious
+ Fireplace & Nest are easy to use for climate control
+ Close to village, higher on the hill
+ 2 big garages for storing cars, skis, etc
+ Laundry room, with all the fixings!
+ Lots of towels, shower supplies included
+ The wifi is fast, some houses have crappy DSL which is pokey & slow, we had adults and kids on tablets, laptops, phones, streamed video; never a complaint!
+ Comfy beds, master suite upstairs, 2 bunk beds upstairs, queen upstairs and queen downstairs
+ nice foyer in front, so get in/out of cold weather gear
+ nice tv in main living room, with blu-ray and surround sound, bring your blu-rays!
<> on our last day, we had a number of power brown outs, it got real annoying and we called the manager, i'm sure it was fixable, but we must have had 10-12 2 second flashes where the entire house lost power
- a bit light on needed kitchen supplies, like oil, sugar, and the like. we ended up buying and leaving for the next guests
- No upstairs climate control (that I could find, and I looked) meant downstairs was cold and upstairs was hot.. never quite got house warmth just right.. most nights had hot and cold patches that were tricky to navigate.
- no TVs in the bedrooms, in fact, just one in the entire house, not a big deal, but worth noting, bring your streaming device :-)"
