"This was our first time at Teton Village, and we found the condo and location to both be as advertised. Staff was great and the condo was excellent. We stayed for a week with our two boys, and all had an excellent time. Would definitely come back for another stay, as we truly enjoyed our time at Teton."Guest: Mike Date of Stay: August 2014 Review Submitted: August 19, 2014View listing

I would definately stay here again should we visit again!"Guest: Louise R. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 19, 2014View listing
"Do not hesitate to rent the Skinny House for your Boston vacation! Besides the thrill of staying in the midst of history, the food in the North End is delicious. The nearby T stops made getting to the house from the airport simple, as well as to Fenway Park, MIT and Harvard. The USS Constitution, Bunker Hill, Faneuil Hall, ,Boston Tea Party Ships and Museum, Old North Church, Paul Revere's Home, and many other sites are within walking distance. The house itself had everything we needed ... It didn't feel too small for 2 adults and 2 college age boys. It was very clean on check-in and the washer, dryer, stove, microwave , dishwasher and tv all worked perfectly. The owners were very helpful and quick in their communications. Our flight needed to be changed a few days before we were to arrive (my mistake) and they helped us with suggestions and an early check in. Also, one of my sons left something behind, and the cleaning person found it , gave it to the property manager, Olivia, who mailed it to us at home. What a great team and what great customer service!"Guest: Linda C. Date of Stay: June 2014 Review Submitted: June 28, 2014View listing
"My husband and I rented this house with our entire bridal party for our wedding in January. The home is beyond beautiful and was such a wonderful vacation spot!! It's so close to Paia and the beach, but we hardly ever wanted to leave the house! It was so well kept and well stocked we were able to have fun BBQ's. Highly recommend to anyone!"Guest: Nicole L.
