Why Kelly Lloyd chose Northwest

The Keystone Resort skiing in the Winter was the original attraction, the addition of the golfing and hiking in the Summer made it the perfect family get away for us.

Nicer than home

  • 5 of 5

Every summer I send a group of attorneys to the mountains for a weekend getaway. We have used this house in the past and were excited to get to use it again. While I haven't been there myself, one of our partners told me after this last visit that it was "fancy". He said it was nicer than his home. We have used this house for gatherings since it has good parking and a nice, large outdoor area. Kelly is great to work with, although I don't think she checks VRBO every day. Give her a few days to respond if sending an initial inquiry. I highly recommend it.

The property is well represented by the pictures on its site. Our family enjoyed our stay

  • 4 of 5

The house is well laid out with a wonderful great room and lovely mountain views. The beds need new mattresses and the stove needs replacing, but it was an ideal home for our family gathering. It's well stocked with the basics. The property manager was nice to work with and helpful. The outdoor space was fabulous with a large patio that easily accommodates large groups. The quiet location at the end of the street gives the impression that no one else is nearby. We would love to stay again, especially if the mattresses are replaced.

Worked well for our family

  • 4 of 5

This house is at the END of the road! Takes a good 5 -8 minutes to get to the highway. Elk House worked well for our family. We were missing 1 wife and 1 baby from our group, so we had just enough bedroom space. The little TV room was used for our "bachelor" dad. Each of the main bedrooms were spaced at the end of separate hallways; one was actually accessed from the outside porch, but worked fine for the "grandparents". The bunk room was great for our little ones - both for sleep and playtime. Lincoln Logs and Duplo blocks were a hit! There was not a table nearly big enough for our family (7 adults + 4 kids), but there was a high chair + 2 pack & plays. The one thing I would request would be some plastic cups and plates for kiddos. There is no TV in the main living area; TVs in the bedrooms + a larger one in the little TV room. If our whole family is able to make the "family ski trip" next year, we will need to find something larger - otherwise - we'd be back at Elk House!
