Our property is 1 of about 5 in the entire resort that offers rental guests true ski in and out luxury from the front door.

The best location for the first time skier, as well as the expert. Our spot offers direct access to the bunny slope, base lodge and lift system.

Our Forest Cottage is located directly on Rosebrook slope offering RARE direct slope access, about 50 feet from the front door.

Coveted by skiers, the Rosebrook slope is one of the first on the mountain to receive snowmaking service insuring your ski on off access from early ski season on.


This three level, completely remodeled Forest Cottage unit is about as good as it gets!

The main entry way has custom built- in benches, plenty of coat hooks, and custom shelving conveniently store ski helmets, and all your ski gear. We have a ski shed right outside the front door for ski storage. Come in from the slopes for lunch, or to warm up with hot chocolate. This property boasts a beautifully upgraded kitchen with granite, stainless appliances, custom cabinetry, glass back-splash, tile, raised granite entertainment bar with 3 bar to the living room with new comfortable furniture, and dining area equipped with a new dinning room table with 8 chairs, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch, and dinner while watching the skiers ski by, the chair lifts operating, and at night the groomers grooming the slopes. Such a great space to entertain in, or to just enjoy quiet moments after a great day in front of the fire. The Master bedroom has a king size bed, built in bureau, and private tiled bath with tub/shower and granite counter tops. The Master also has French doors that lead to a private deck. The second bedroom on the main level has a queen size bed, with a set of bunks. This bedroom as a stunning bay window with window seat. Across the hall is a full bath, complete with a double vanity with granite top, tile, and a bath tub/ shower. The spacious upstairs bedroom has a king, set of bunks, a new private bath, with tile, shower and a pedestal sink.

You will love the finished off lower level; TV area with new oversized chair and sofa, queen pullout sofa with privacy room divider, ping-pong table, foosball table, kitchenette with an extra fridge! Still want more? How about a new full size laundry, ski tuning bench in the utility room, and another new bath with granite vanity, tile and shower! Where there isn't tile, you will find luxuriously plush wall to wall carpet. Ok, I could go on...need more information? Feel to contact me anytime.


This property booked for your desired time? We own another property located just a 1 minute stroll closer to the lodge. Forest Cottage #33. Two doors down from us is property #431921 and is a 5 bedroom 3 bath, with direct ski-in ski out access. Together we can accommodate 22 plus people with the two properties. After you have stayed at one of our Forest Cottages, you will never want to stay anywhere else...

Extremely responsive and helpful owners, Very well taken care.

  • 5 of 5

We felt so comfortable in the house. It was so clean and appetizing. It has a really good quality upkeep, and everything is so fresh and new.

Beautifull area too.

Thank you, Don and Lana!

Great property, nice location

  • 5 of 5

The property was in a great condition and was very well equipped. The location was fantastic, close to several attractions and popular destinations.

Don (the property owner) was very responsive.

The only downside is that the property doesn't have A/C.

Typically, I don't think this will be a big issue in that area, but the weather was very hot during our stay (July 2018), and on the first two days, we had great difficulty falling asleep at night (my family was using the room upstairs).

On the third night, the weather cooled down and it became very pleasant. Just FYI.

Great weekend

  • 5 of 5

We could not have asked for a better spot. Kids could ski right out, no extra lugging. The home had everything we needed and plenty of space for our 3 families. We will be back next year. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

Great Family Ski Weekend

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at several of the Forest Cottages over the years, always one of the few ski in ski units. This one was by far the most well appointed, updated and nicely furnished unit we have stayed in. Don, the owner went above and beyond and made several adjustments to accommodate some special needs we had. The unit was great, but the owner was even better. We would give him 6 stars if we could. Thanks Don!

House and Snow: Perfect

  • 5 of 5

We rented Don's house for a family ski trip and could not have been more pleased. Our stay hit all the right points. First of all, we arrived just before the snow and were settled in and cozy as it started. Don was terrific to work with. He texted to let us know the place was ready if we needed to check in early; all communications were prompt and helpful and easy. Everything is well thought out and uncomplicated, so we arrived and didn't need to communicate until we left.

The house itself is very comfortable and the updates are excellent. (We've stayed in a similar house nearby and really appreciated the thoughtful and much needed updates.) The whole house was spotless, there were plenty of supplies, the decor is pleasant, beds are very comfortable, linens good quality. Check, check, check! The basement is a real plus. Our grandchildren enjoyed playing there and we had a great family movie night.

There is something intangible about the house that is great. The kids were immediately at home. On the second day, our DIL commented that she felt really comfortable in the house. The kitchen is the best furnished of ANY rental I've ever been in. The plates and glassware are not what you get in most rentals. They are more like what you'd have for yourself. It was clear that previous tenants had left spices and staples and we felt it was that kind of house: it gave so much it felt like you should give something back.

All this and I haven't even mentioned the ski in/ski out aspect which is always a plus, especially with the ease of getting two five-year-olds on and off the slopes.

In all, we had a wonderful stay in a wonderful house and plan to return.
