Second time was even better!

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time staying here and it was as magnificent as ever. Martin was an amazing point of contact and returned emails in a very timely manner. The house is spacious and had plenty of room for our entire party. It is close to the slopes and to town! We are looking forward to coming here again.

The perfect weekend!

  • 5 of 5

If you have a group and need a large cabin this is your place! We had 8 adults and 8 kids and had more room than we needed. We still had several beds that we didn’t use. I can’t say enough good things you just have to see for yourself! Martin was available for the few questions that we had. Love love love this place!

Amazing home beautiful property clean. Reasonably priced. Definitely will be goin back.

  • 5 of 5

This house has plenty of room hiking right out your back door. Incredible living room with amazing view. Did little yoga by the fireplace as we gazed into the eagle preserve. I love to cook and the kitchen is a dream. This house is a must. Owner is helpful and easy to contact with any questions. Highly recommend this place.
