About the property

House, 6 Bedrooms, 5 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 16)

This Kirkwood rental home was literally designed with the ski family in mind. The owner/architect built this vacation home to complement and make the most of Kirkwood Resort`s natural beauty. This beautifully furnished custom home is well suited for up to three families. Bring your friends along for a luxurious High Sierra ski retreat.

A roaring wood fire awaits, making your après ski get togethers extra cozy. The huge, open living room and lower level entertainment room provide ample space and amenities to entertain your guests—a billiards table, 52" TV with DVD player, and home stereo system keep the fun going after the lifts close. If a professional kitchen is your choice, you have it, and the formal dining area seats ten. A large mosaic tile mural of Kirkwood adds some extra character and is certainly a sight to remember! Six bedrooms ensure ultimate privacy when it’s time to turn in for the night, and a private loft area (with additional sleeping areas) is perfect for the kids to play board games, read or romp around.

Take in the stunning views of Thimble Peak, Red Cliffs, and Glove Rock from the 360 degree windows or the oversized deck and patio. The Palisades subdivision provides trail-side access, allowing you to ski from your front door directly to Cornice Express Chair 6 or Timber Creek Chair 7 and back home again. When the ski season tapers off, you’re also in close proximity to numerous hiking trails, a full disc golf course, and other local activities. Get away from it all and take an overnight horseback trip, hike in waist deep wildflowers, or swim or canoe in one of 20 lakes in a 5 mile radius. Even in high season, you’re secluded from the crowds in your own relaxing oasis.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a WONDERFUL time in Kirkwood and we found the house to be very accommodating for our needs. The property was immaculate when we arrived (so 5/5) and you guys were fantastic to work with and easily accessible (5/5). I would far and away recommend this home to others for its great location, view, beauty, and functionality (5/5). I will highly recommend this house and Pyramid Peaks to other dorms for next year's ski trip.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

I have to say, I have rented quite a bit over the years for a large annual family reunion, and it's actually really hard to land a spot that hits all of the things that make a group trip absolutely unforgettable!

Room accommodations: We had 16 adults, and there was a comfy bed for each adult. We all got amazing sleep which is so important for an active weekend! And the best part is that the beds were all very comfortable. When you rent a lot, you realize where owner splurge (above and beyond) to ensure that guests are comfortable. Mattresses were great, down comforters were plush, sheets and linens were all clean and smelled fresh. And pillows... yes, the pillows were amazing.

Space: Everything in this house is meant for ensuring that large parties are extremely comfortable and able to relax. The owners have thought of it all. Kitchen is massive and when you are cooking for 16 people, you don't realize how amazing it is to use 1 very large pot/pan. Toaster fits 6 pieces of toast at once, coffee maker has heater thermoses, and large pitcher to brew multiple pots of coffee and keep them hot for all guests. We were able to all sit down and eat together as well, which was really special!

Location: Wedged between 2 large peaks in the Kirkwood valley, you have amazing views from the balcony. But the proximity to so many small lakes and hikes made this the most ideal location I have found. While we stayed in the summer (offseason) there wasn't very much open but the general store had everything we needed.

We had a blast, we will be back to this amazing rental.

Recommendations: Larger coffee brewer, more furniture out on balcony, specific instructions for fireplace (we couldn't figure out if there was gas or not and decided not to have a fire). But that's literally all I could think of. Great cabin, thanks for having us!

Stunning home right in the thick of Kirkwood

  • 5 of 5

This house was the ideal location for our mix of powder hounds, non-skiiers, and small children. It was perfect for spending the whole day in for those so inclined, as well as providing ski-in access to the slopes (with a short traverse or walk to get to Cornice Chair or Timber Creek) Beautiful views of the valley, lots of communal space including a great, well-stocked kitchen and a play room with pool table. Our kids were too young to stay in the loft by themselves, but that area would have been perfect to pack some older kids into, giving the adults privacy. We will definitely be coming back!

Spectacular Time in the Mountains

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely amazing!!! There was space for everyone to feel at home. We had several teens in our group. Between the upstairs loft, downstairs lounge, and sledding on the side hill, they had room to spread out, so the adults could enjoy the main fireplace living room and dining room. The kitchen is well equipped and immaculately clean! It had everything you could imagine needing for preparing meals for large groups. The best part TWO dishwashers! The bedrooms were spacious, lots of clean towels and extra pillows. Everything was VERY clean! Oh, I forgot to mention the enormous mud room. Lots of benches an hooks for guests to strip off and store their equipment. There was plenty of parking too. We fit 2 cars in the garage and 4 in the driveway. There were a few sleds in the garage for use as well. The location could not have been better! And, being so close to the slopes, the kids were given free reign to come and go as they pleased. The mountain explorer's were happy, and our snow bunnies who liked hanging in the cabin, couldn't have been more pleased. The kitchen is well equipped and immaculately clean! It have everything you could imagine needing, for preparing meals for large groups. The best part TWO dishwashers! So helpful with a large group!!! Also, the checkout instructions were super simple. We had to do very little compared to other placed that we stayed. We truly felt spoiled staying in the gorgeous mountain lodge! Thank you to the owners for sharing it with us!

Basically positive.

  • 4 of 5

This really is a beautiful home and a lovely location. Our family enjoyed it so much. My major objection is that the beds in some of the bedrooms are rock hard. The master bedroom particularly was very uncomfortable. The kitchen is beautifully supplied.
