great ski lodge!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful, very charming, knotty pine everywhere.

We loved it, 20 minute drive to stratton, very convenient.

I would definitely stay here again.

There were 7 adults and it slept all of us very comfortably.

Great location & clean house but there are a few kinks to figure out...

  • 3 of 5

The location was great, and the rooms were clean & had soft bedding. Ski mudroom was great. The property is new, there are some kinks to figure out. Once the kinks are fixed, I would say its a 4 or 5 star property. However, we had a few issues with the property. When we first walked in, the door on the 2nd floor was WIDE open. We were very freaked out and walked through every room to make sure no one was hiding. This may also have contributed to the fly/bug problem our first night.

The house was also advertised as a 3 bedroom. It is actually a 2 bedroom house, but with a loft space that has 2 twin beds so its really a 2 bedroom, with a 3rd sleeping space/loft. This worked fine for us, however, it does eliminate privacy and the noise travels, so it is worth knowing.

The kitchen is spacious, and was a great hangout area. The owner provided basics (salt, pepper, olive oil, coffee (but no sugar), creamer, hot chocolate). However, we had a few issues. The cooking utensils left a lot to be desired. There was no true knife for cooking, so we ended up using butter knives/flimsy 2" knives for cutting up onions. The quality of all of the utensils in general was pretty terrible (the can opener could barely open a can!) The toaster was also so small that we had to trim our bagels in order to make them fit. The refrigerator, though spacious, did not have a working ice maker, and the water filter was in need of changing (the owner did leave ice bags in the freezer). Though there were mugs/plates/utensils, they were limited. There were only 4 mugs, which proved difficult for 6 adults wanting to drink coffee in the morning. There were also no wine glasses.

On our 2nd night, there was a power outage while we were making dinner. We called/texted the owner repeatedly (10 times) and no one picked up. Once we were able to reach the owners, we were in regular comunication with them about the power outage. The power outage was due to weather, so definitely not the owners fault, but the owners did not have flashlights/candles available, despite power outages not being uncommon.

A set of instructions would have been helpful too. We weren't sure where to take out the trash, how to control the heat (living room was freezing), or what to do to check out.

My last complaint is the lack of wifi. Though the house isn't advertised with wifi, but thtat would have made a big difference to us as sending work email on our laptops proved difficult.

Owner's Response: Hi Lisa, Thank you for your written review. As we discussed on the phone during the weather related power outage, this is our home and our first time renting during the ski season. The power company confirmed via text it was out for 41 minutes. It appears from your review, the difference between a 3 star review to a 4 or 5 star review are basic pantry items, stemware and cutlery. I believe communication is the key and I appreciate your feedback.
