"This is by far the best long weekend we have taken in ages. Loved all of the nature from animals to beauty to hiking and biking. The cottage was just as describes. Absolutely loved the charm of the it. So cozy and magical. Only regret is I wish we could have stayed a bit longer. Planning a return trip possibly in the autumn however there is so much more to see on the property. My favorite is the far back field. Breathtaking! Loved the chipmunks they were my favs. Made a fire each night which we loved. I'd love to learn more on the history there on my next visit. I could go on and on ...............Thank you Mona and Byron for letting others share this piece of Gods Country! Loved it!"

"We recently stayed at this Southwind Townhouse and by far this has been the easiest transaction with an owner, especially with the hoops we had to jump through last year to stay at another Southwind property I found on VRBO. All business done via email, everything functions with access to and fro as expected, no surprises, no issues, super clean and comfortable.
When you enter this property, you feel like your more of the guest in a friend's home than a renter. Main reason being the warm and relaxed feel of the place, perfect for the outdoor oriented complimented with all the conveniences of home. Upside is the fantastic views from the family room bay window, much better than last year.
We had a party of 5, all skiers, who closely watched the forecast leading up our departure from MD. Here we finally found a true ski-in and ski-out place to stay, but no snow to be found anywhere at Southwinds. I'm not blaming the owner for no snow, but at the same time don't understand when there's snow making equipment on the trail behind the townhouse, why there's not being snow made as was done on other numerous trails at the resort. For the record, this place is exactly as portrayed in the photos, open the back basement door from a well appointed ski mud room, and you're in business. Due to the lack of snow, we converted the garage as our mud room and had to take a short walk down to the end of the street to hit the main run of 7 Springs - not a tragedy, just a disappointment. With having to book these places so far in advance, it's a roll of the dice for snow!
OK, so why not a 5 star place. As the guy paying the bill I expected a better night sleep. When you enter the master suite you look at the bed and you will question if that's not a double instead of a queen. First night in I clunked my wife in the knee and we both tossed and turned both nights - she swore it was a double bed. Kids slept great with no complaints (lucky them!). I would have paid a little more to get a better night sleep, so would love to return to a king bed."

"Good +. A very homelike place to stay. The downstairs living area nice for the family to gather. Having 2 1/2 baths, with 1/2 bath on the 1st floor, very convenient. The shuttle service to 7 Springs was quick and easy. We were able to cook out using the grill on the deck. Cable and internet service was used without a problem. A little warm on arrival, but opening up the windows it cooled down. Saturday was comfortable all day due to the cool mountain nights. 12 noon check out is a real bonus. The owner sent detailed info and the key arrived in plenty of time. I would stay again if up that way for an event."

"This was such a great place for our family plus another family! The house was well kept and clean. We were really pleased with the layout and amount of bedrooms/bathrooms for what our 2 families required. The weather was perfect for swimming in the pool and sightseeing. Thanks for a wonderful weekend!"
