The 2nd bedroom has 2 twin beds, TV, VCR/DVD and a separate bathroom. Both guest areas can be closed off from the rest of the condo for privacy.

The stone fireplace sets the tone in the great room. You can enjoy a book with the relaxing fire, or watch the 32' flat screen TV/DVD/VCR.

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!

Mountain Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many rentals the past few years and this is, by far, the most comfortable and well furnished of them all. The beautiful view of the mountains brought back memories of our early days in Pennsylvania and New York State. The snow storm during our stay was an added bonus...what a scenic view of the snow covered mountains. Our shopping was limited because of the weather, but we will see much more when we return.

Highly recommended!!!

Perfect Location ~ except for excessive fees

  • 5 of 5

The place was perfect, the condo was very clean and well furnished. The drive up to the condo is VERY steep.

The only disappointment was all the extra service fees. For a three night stay, we ended up paying an additional $222.95 in fees alone.

Owner's Response: Actually the extra fees are imposed by VRBO and amounted to $101.57. Everyone has to pay sales tax and for the condo to be cleaned.

Stunning views, amazing condo! A++

  • 5 of 5

This was our first experience with vrbo, and Judy made the experience very positive and easy. She was very responsive and easy to work with. I'm quite picky when I stay somewhere on vacation and I can honestly say that there was absolutely nothing negative about this condo. It was extremely clean, very nicely decorated, very roomy, updated, etc. I really felt like I was home! Also, the bldg was VERY quiet which was good since we were up there for peace and quietness! I plan on coming back next fall, and know exactly where I'd like to stay again. Thank you. A+++
