Guestbook comments from the owner

Your home is WONDERFUL!!! We absolutely loved our time there, it is perfect beyond description. The Round House is perfect. The scenery we had was breathe taking and we enjoyed the home as much as the skiing. Thank you so much for being such quality people with such a quality place to offer others. We look forward to returning.

Nesteled in the woods with many windows, this home was ideal for us and our six teenage grandchildren. It's about a 15-minute drive from Numbs and the Highlands. Grandpa and I also enjoyed the wonderful groomed cross-coutry skiing. We loved the fireplace and it was nice to have a pool table in the basement.

The Round House was just right for us.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple spent the weekend at The Round House. It was exactly as advertised, no unpleasant surprises. The house is roomy and comfortable, clean and well maintained. We had cold and rainy weather for a couple days so the fireplace and the spaciousness were appreciated. The community is safe and quiet. The owner, Monica, was excellent to work with and I recommend her and "The Round House". Thanks Again,
