Owner's Response: We are located in the winter ski slope village side of the resort. In summer the main lodge front desk and Ivan's restaurant are closed so the Schuss Village looks a bit different than in the winter. I appreciate you comment about our room. We strive to keep it extremely clean and the kitchen stocked with supplies. Thank you, Joyce Fisher

Recent trip with my daughter

  • 3 of 5

My daughter and I recently rented the unit for a weekend stay. The unit was clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The close proximity to the slopes and Ivan's was great. Overall, our experience was positive. The only negatives to our experience was the hot water took a long time to heat up and there was a musty odor in the unit that reminded me of an old family cabin.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review of our rental at Schuss Mountain Resort. I am pleased that you had a positive experience and enjoyed having the slopes and Ivan's restaurant within walking distance. In response to the musty odor, I had the housekeeper check out the unit and she felt it was OK. I did have the carpet cleaned and the room sanitized as we are always trying to improve our rental and feel that any concern by a guest is to be taken seriously. Once again, thank you. Joyce
