About Joyce Sweasy, Owner

My name is Joyce Sweasy. I am a retired U.S. Army Colonel. While in the Army I was stationed in Germany and Italy and fell in love with the Alps. I am also an avid skier and am often at Seven Springs for that reason. Remembering those awesome Bavarian chalets, I wanted to make the interior of my condo as much like those chalets as possible. For that reason I hired a professional decorator and an artist from Germany to recreate the Bavarian atmosphere with murals, flooring, and items from Bavaria and the Alps. .

Joyce Sweasy, Owner purchased this condo in 2002

Bullwinkles is an outstanding ski in/out condo!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (at least the boys) has enjoyed this property over many years. It is well-maintained, always spotlessly clean, and offers the perfect ski-in, ski-out experience. The kitchen is well-supplied and very functional.

OUTSTANDING!

Bullwinkles at Seven Springs, Good and Bad

  • 4 of 5

Cons:

I rated this condo a 4 out of 5 due to the owner taking advantage of the damage fee for a personal maintenance fee. On our way home after a nice trip, we received a call from the owner stating that we broke a hinge on the upstairs bathroom vanity. The discrepancy I have with the owners claim is that we never opened the doors on the vanity; so how could we have broken the hinge. Whether she was stating the truth or not, there isn’t much we can do but pay for a new hinge. Depending on the outcome, I may or may not recommend this condo to another person. Hopefully it’s a $10 hinge instead of a new vanity. If we had truly broken the hinge, I would gladly pay for it or just go ahead and replace it while I was there. After triple checking that everything was in order before leaving, this leaves a very sour taste in my mouth.

Pros:

Overall our experience here was very pleasant until the phone call we received on our way home. The condo was very clean and everything was in order. The instructions the owner left were very thorough leaving no questions to ask. The condo was right on the slope and after a short walk you were skiing. The ski locker made storing your ski’s and boots very nice. It was very convenient having the condo right on the slopes if we wanted to come in for a short break, lunch, or nap (especially with kids).

The down side is that it’s on the 3rd floor which made it a little inconvenient unloading and loading your vehicle.

Owner's Response: Ed, I guess you can also tell from the reviews that those who have not done damage to my condo give me a 5 star rating. However, I thank your for the rating your gave. It is only those who damage my condo and are held accountable who find fault - because they are being held financial responsible the damages. As you know from the SMALL amount that was withheld from the damage deposit - I am very fair and attempt to get the repairs made at the least cost possible to the renter. As we discussed in both a phone call and an E-mail message. I am at Seven Springs every weekday in January, February and March. I meet the Seven Springs Resort Cleaning Crew Supervisor at my condo the same day a renter checks out to thorough inspect every aspect of the condo - to include ensuring doors, closets, cabinet doors, - every aspect of the condo is in working order. This is my responsibility to renters checking in, Every aspect of the condo was inspected before you checked in - EVERYTHING WAS IN WORKING ORDER - ALL CABINET DOORS IN THE KITCHEN, BATHROOMS AND VANITY AREAS WERE IN FULL WORKING ORDER. The inspection is done by both myself and the Seven Springs Resort Cleaning Supervisor as a double check. Damages are documented. On the date of your departure (no one had been in the condo between the time you checked out and the arrival of myself and the Seven Springs Resort Cleaning Supervisor, we thoroughly inspected every aspect of the condo to ensure it ls in excellent condition for the next renter who would is arriving tomorrow (Friday, 15 February.) We opened all vanity doors and that is when we found that the bottom hinge of the loft bedroom vanity was broken. It was definitely NOT BROKEN before you arrived to use the condo. A metal hinge that is cracked in half is not maintenance - it is DAMAGE. I am a ski instructor at Seven Springs and had to work so the first opportunity I had to contact you was in the afternoon after 3:00 pm when I finished teaching. As soon as the DAMAGE was noticed I called a repair company in Champion, PA to ask if they could come take a look at the hinge as it was not a standard hinge (it is recessed on both the cabinet and the vanity door) to see if a hinge could be obtained. It was a specialty hinge - as I stated. When I was speaking to you the company representative was there and you heard me ask when was the soonest the repair could be made. The metal hinge was completely cracked in half - again DAMAGE NOT MAINTENANCE.

What a fun filled time at Seven Springs

We found the place spotlessly clean and well maintained. The weather cooperated so that we could ski with excellent conditions.

BEWARE!

  • 1 of 5

Our family booked this condo at the last minute for New Years, most everything was booked so we paid over top dollar for this condo. Our family travels a lot and have rented many vacation homes over the years. We are a Christian family that does not smoke or drink. Upon arrival we found a cracked tile on the floor, we took a picture of it for our records and we also noticed the ottoman was broken and the main TV volume would spike up and then down so you constantly had to keep the remote in your hand to control the volume, the living room furniture is very dated and all wood framed, we had 3 young kids with us, all of them at some point were injured due to the furniture being wood. When we left we cleaned and made sure everything was perfect. A few days later we get notification that the owner is claiming a most of the damage deposit due to a cracked tile, we immediately sent her a picture ( date stamped from the night of our arrival ) of the cracked tile. She then responded that there was other cracked tile too supposedly **Note: These are tiles you have to walk on, so if you do rent this condo, be sure to not walk on the tile ( which would be impossible). After paying top dollar the seller proceeded to keep most of the damage deposit , even after sending proof the tile was already like this she still didn’t return our deposit. Condo was also very cluttered, there was no space to put anything. Our family rents condos on a regular and this was by far our worst experience and would not recommend this condo to anyone, hopefully this review prevents the same thing happening to another family.

Owner's Response: Jimmy, As we previously discussed, I am at Seven Springs & stay at my other property every Monday through Friday in January, February & March. Because I am on the resort just 1/2 mile from the Stoneridge condo I inspect the condo before & after each renter arrives & departs. I do this so that damages are quickly noted & a determination can be reasonably made as to when the damage occurred. A renter stayed at the condo from 27 December (arrival) through 29 December (departure). That rental departed at 11:00 a.m. on 29 December. The cleaning crew includes a cleaning supervisor who thoroughly inspects the condo after each renter departs (within one hour or less after a renter departs). Since your rental party was to arrive that same day on 29 December arriving at 4:00 pm, the cleaning crew & supervisor arrived at 11:30 am to begin cleaning & doing laundry so the condo would be ready in time for your 4:00 pm arrival. The cleaning supervisor thoroughly inspected the condo & found two chipped/cracked times. One tile was located in the kitchen area near the chair at the end of the table. Another tile was found just in front of the inside of the door on the kitchen side. The cleaning supervisor called me at 1:00 pm to report the damages. I arrived at the condo at 2:00 pm to thoroughly inspect the condo & I also noted the damaged tile in the kitchen & just inside the kitchen by the exterior condo door. I noticed the damage ottoman leg. As stated in our previous messages regarding damages - it is my standard practice to perform a second thorough inspection after the cleaning supervisor performs an inspection. I keep a report of every renter & the results of inspections (that is, no damages or damages & description of the damages as well as the date the renters departed & the departure time stated in the rental agreement.) The condo was secure, lock boxes fully closed & locked at all times. The lock boxes were fully functional when the cleaning crew & supervisor arrived on 1 January & the condo was secure & locked. On your departure date, 1 January, the cleaning crew & cleaning supervisor arrived at 12:30 pm. Other than your family no one was in the condo between your departure & arrival of the cleaning crew & cleaning supervisor - who could have caused the damages.

As advertised: clean, convenient, comfortable

  • 5 of 5

If you value a clean, well-maintained, well-equipped and well-stocked (there are even flannel sheets and carry-out style coffee cups with lids) rental, “Bullwinkle’s Mountaintop Getaway" is your kind of place.

This ski-in/ski-out condo is first-class in every respect. Involved owner? Check Convenient, quiet location? Check. Comfortable accom-

modations? Check. Heated gear locker? Check. Etc., etc.

Situated along side of Avalanche lift, the property is convenient to the main lodge as well as Sporting Clays Grille. Drive yourself or take the shuttle -- a stop is in front of the condo. We ate several times at the Grille and enjoyed the lodge facilities (Foggy Goggles especially), shops and activities. We really appreciated that Christmas Morning Mass was held in the lodge.

We have stayed at other Seven Springs properties and find this one to be superior. In fact, Bullwinkle's ranks among our top ski or beach stays over the years . . . we recommend highly and would rent again.
