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 ;)

Cozy, spacious, and clean.

We had a great experience with this rental. It exceeded our expectations, cheaper than the Silver Mountain Resort for two families, and we will definitely be back.

Excellent stay

  • 5 of 5

The Gondola House was perfect for our group! the caretakers across the street were super nice and helpful, and the property was perfect with no fuss. The hot tub was hot when we showed up! Linda's (the owner) communication with us was excellent and we can't wait to get back to the Gondola House again.

Awesome home under the gondola

  • 5 of 5

We loved this house! It worked perfectly for our group. So cute and clean. The hot tub was awesome to come back to after a long day of skiing. Linda was great to work with and was adaptable to last minute changes. We will definitely be staying here again!
