Guestbook comments from the owner

I just wanted to take the time to say that we really enjoyed the weekend at your condo. You guys have a really nice place up there. We were lucky on Sat. night, when we were skiing at Sugar, it actually snowed the entire evening. Well, I just wanted to say how much we enjoyed staying in a place that feels like home and I will definitely be in touch again for the next time we come up to Sugar. Thanks!

Nice, clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was the perfect size for our family. Everything we needed was there! The unit was clean and everything was in working order. The owner left instructions for everything, so we didn't have any problems. The indoor pool and hot tub at the clubhouse was nice after a day of snow skiing. Great place to relax after a hard day of play!

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We rented the condo for our family of four, and it was perfect. Great view, comfortable, everything we wanted for a long weekend away. The kitchen was well stocked, the bedrooms were comfortable, the property was very nice and convenient to Boone and the ski resorts. Also, my kids enjoyed the neighborhood's indoor pool on our rainy day. Lovely place.

Awesome Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was immaculate and comfortable with breathtaking views. It was very well situated with convenient access to all the areas of interest and attractions. We loved the area and all it has to offer. The owner, Judy, was extremely responsive and a delight to work with. We cannot wait to go back!

5 stars!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at this condo. It was beautifully appointed and so cozy with the fireplace on a cold and rainy day! In the mornings, we enjoyed sitting on the balcony with a cup of coffee to get our day started. The views were gorgeous! We had everything that we needed during our stay, and would love to visit again in the future. It was a perfect getaway!
