This house is amazing!!!! The views are incredible and the lay out is perfect. This house has everything you might need. If you are looking for a vacation spot, for a large family or group, look no further. Also, the owner of this house is very easy to work with and gracious. In short, this is a lovely, comfortable and beautiful vacation home.

Great for large groups

  • 4 of 5

Overall a nice place with a lot of room. Great location to ski sugar bowl, and amazing view! A few things could have been better. Refrigerator was full of food,, so had to clean out due to our need for room for thanksgiving groceries. Also a full cookie sheet of taco shells left in oven. Bare minimum of towels and bedding so bring extra. Lastly, only one tv in the entire home. With a lot of kids, it would have been nice to have at least one more

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. Sorry the cleaners missed the taco shells. We leave condiments in the fridge for your convenience. To be clear, all of the eleven beds are made up with quality linens and there are 18 towels. Washer and dryer provided if you want to wash them during your stay.

Our group of 8 adults thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Schull Lodge. The views are at once breathtaking and serene, and the lodge provided a great space for us to relax and have a good time.

I sent Sidney quite a few questions before our stay, and she was always quick to respond and courteous. I really appreciated the communication aspect!

This is a great spot for sure, and we hope to be there again next year!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at Schull Lodge. We are a large family and there was plenty of room for us all - and, probably more importantly, plenty of well-appointed bathrooms as well. We particularly loved the great room - lots of comfortable seating, great view with a kitchen that had everything we needed. The pool table in the lower level provided hours of fun and the large round table was perfect for every need - family meals, games, work space, etc. Thanks for a great stay.
