Great place to relax

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing! It is located about 25 minutes withing a mountain in a resort with a ski slope. I took my 4 year old out to the slope and we had a blast! Karen really takes pride in making sure you have a great place to relax and have fun! Would return if ever back in the area.

The house is absolutely gorgeous.

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect for spending time with your family. We decided last year for Christmas we would take a family trip instead of buying gifts. There was plenty of room for all of us. Thank you for allowing my family to make some memories in your home.

The Dogwood House

  • 4 of 5

The owner has provided everything a vacationer could need. Multiple sets of sheets and towels; more kitchen equipment than in my own home, and a lovely natural setting. My only frustration was with the unreliability of TV reception and Internet access. This might be a problem of the area rather than the individual property, since cell phone reception and WiFi access seem iffy all over Sapphire Valley.

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed our mountain home and the area, but Yes, reception for TV during thunderstorms is a problem for the area as well as wifi is not as fast as we are accustomed to where we work but I have the fastest and most efficient that there is. Summertime weather with thunderstorms seems to be the problem all around but fortunately most of the time it is a shower and not an all day event. Hope you will book again in the future. Regards, Karen

Absolutely Outstanding

  • 5 of 5

House was immaculate and had everything you need, including a fully stocked kitchen and all the other little items you didn't think you'd need but they were there. Extremely clean and unbelievably comfortable. We couldn't have asked for more. The resort was also great, with more amenities than you could count. Very friendly people and a wonderful community.
