About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms with 5 beds, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

Welcome to the Gondola House. We have enjoyed owning our home for 23 years and sharing it with travelers from all over the world. Our home is in a very peaceful setting and offers wonderful views of the Gondola and surrounding mountains. You are also close enough to walk to town, restaurants, shopping and much more. The house is about 1 1/2 miles from the Silver Mountain gondola base.

Our home offers everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay including a fully equipped kitchen, bedding and towels. Downstairs there are 2 bedrooms. One of the bedrooms is large and has two queen beds. The other has one queen bed. Also downstairs is the living room, dining room, eat-in kitchen, and bathroom with washer and dryer. The kitchen and downstairs bathroom were recently updated. Upstairs there is a sitting area with a queen bed and tv as well as a large bedroom with a queen bed and a bathroom. Our home is perfect for couples or families to share or for a large family or group to spread out. There is a charming front porch to relax on and plenty of books, games and puzzles to enjoy. Of course if you want to be in touch with the real world we have wireless internet and 2 TV's with expanded cable. If you want to relax after a long day skiing, hiking or biking, there is a 6 person hot tub for your enjoyment.

Our home is perfect for families and groups but we can also lock off the upstairs and rent the downstairs only (2 bedrooms with 3 queen beds and 1 bath) for a reduced nightly and cleaning fee. Please contact owner for this option.

Please note that this is not a 'party' house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had wonderful time staying in the Gondola house. It was so nice to be able to stay in the house I lived in when I was born until we moved out of when I was five years old to Washington State. I Remember so much about the house after walking back into it, that it was amazing. And driving around Kellogg in October was fantastic with all the fall colors. I can not believe how much of Kellogg I remember, moving away from there so young. We can't wait to go back and stay again soon.

We LOVED this property. We had 5 adults and 5 children during our stay. Linda (the property owner) made the reservation process so easy. We rented both the top and bottom of the house and it couldn't have been more perfect. The house is fully equipped, including a book of local recommendations. Its clean, beautifully decorated and you really feel like you're in your own home. There was a tire swing in the back yard and a hot tub off to the side. It's also stocked with games and books!

What made this property so special wasn't because the house was so great (but really, its pretty sweet) but more so the property managers (Rick and Rene) across the street. They came to check on us, gave us the inside scoop on local places, brought bubbles over for the kids, let us love on their sweet dog and even hooked us up with some berries from their bushes! Of course this shouldn't be the expectation of future renters, but really gives you an idea of the sense of community and neighborhood the house is in.

Truly the place to stay in Kellogg/Wardner ... unless of course its a weekend we want to stay ;)

Great place with Great owner

  • 5 of 5

House was very clean and comfortable. Big bedrooms, lots of beds, nice bathrooms. Games, everything you need for the kitchen are all on hand. Nice hot tub and view of gondola as it goes by. Owner was very responsive and worked with us on some details. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone and will definitely stay here again on our next Kellogg trip!

Awesome place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a place to stay that was quiet, peaceful and safe. Well we were pleasantly surprised with this house. It is very well taken care of and is very comfortable. It is obvious that the owners took a lot of time making this home into a vacation getaway. They have done a great job renovating the house with modern amenities yet it still has the quaint feel of an older home. We also met the property managers who live across the street and they were very pleasant. The hot tub is in great shape and was wonderful to relax in. Plenty of dishes, towels, bedding, paper products, etc.

Great Ski Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time staying at the Gondola House. Very fun that it is right under the gondola up to Silver Mountain. House is very clean and comfortable. Bedrooms and bathrooms are nice and large. The house is well stocked with games and books and the kitchen has lots of the essentials with plenty of dishes. The hot tub is great for relaxing after a day of skiing. House is close to town and Silver Mountain - approximately 1 mile. Would definitely recommend to others and stay here again.

Owner's Response: We are delighted to hear you enjoyed our cozy house. You are right, the location is excellent for skiing or any outdoor activities and it is fun to watch the gondola cars quietly make their way up the mountain. We hope you visit again.

Cozy little retreat!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time at this property! There were 10 of us (4 adults and 6 kids). Plenty of space for all. Clean and well maintained. Kitchen had all the dishes, utensils, etc needed to make and serve meals. Fun to see the gondola going above the house while relaxing in the hot tub. Booking and communicating with owner was a breeze! Thanks for a great stay.

Great Location for skiing Silver Mountain and Look Out Pass

  • 5 of 5

Eight of us had a great time staying at this adorable home. The house was well stocked with games and kitchen gadgets. The beds were comfortable. The location was great. We hope to return next year! The hot tub was clean. The house was easy to find. The property managers across the street were very friendly and attentive. The Gondola goes right over your head as you sit in the hot tub. Thank you for sharing your home with us!!!!
