About Michael & Susanna Khazhinsky
We are a ski and snow-loving family from Austin, Texas. Having a mountain log house was always a dream of ours. We felt in love with the house the first time we saw it. The house is beautifully constructed of Douglas Fir logs trucked down from Canada. It was designed with mountain vacation in mind with plenty of living and sleeping areas to get cozy after a long day outdoors. If you like the winter, you will find the summer even better. The house backs up to National Forest, making hiking or cross country skiing available right out the back door. You might see moose, deer, fox and the occasional bear from your window. Really!
Michael & Susanna Khazhinsky purchased this House in 2013

Excellent house for a ski vacation!
Myself and several of my ski friends stayed at the Douglas Fir Lodge and everyone agreed that it was a fantastic place to stay. There are plenty of bedrooms with comfortable beds as well as enough bathrooms for everyone. The radiant floor heating kept the house a very comfortable temperature and there was also plenty of hot water for showers after skiing. The house is very large with plenty of space to spread out and it has a very large kitchen with everything we needed to prepare a large dinner for everyone. Plenty room for vehicles as well.
Nice house but had some real issues
I will start this review by saying I have rented over 25 properties in Colorado over the past 40 years so I have good point of reference. Automatic water turn off switch for the water main turned off Saturday evening. Thank goodness we had all showered for our son's wedding before this happened but returned from the wedding to no water. Could not brush our teeth. flush any toilets or even get a drink of water. Called your emergency number Sunday morning several times until they finally answered and they talked us through the procedure to turn the water back on so we could shower and make coffee before heading out. Also found the heat hard to control. Really hot in some rooms, freezing in others. One room (bedroom with twin beds) even had some snow and water blowing in Friday night. Not a fan of the flannel sheets. Look really cute but not comfortable to sleep on. Pillows not great either. Luxury is an exaggeration. Appointments fall more in the mediocre range. View and location however were excellent and the house was clean on a positive note.
I am sorry to hear that your stay at our house did not meet your expectations.
Before your arrival the house was uniformly heated to 72 degrees. Heating in the house is multi-zoned and each room is individually controlled by a thermostat, as described in the house manual. It would have been better if you adjusted thermostat temperature to your liking rather than wasting energy by opening windows and doors to the balconies and getting snow into the room.
Our house is eco-friendly and is equipped with automatic water shut off system to prevent water leaks. Based on the water log, during your stay someone from your party did not turn off water in one of the faucets. As a result, water was running for 4 hours before it got automatically shut off around 11 p.m. on Saturday night. I am glad that our management company could resolve the issue in a timely matter and water was running again at 8 a.m. on Sunday morning. For faster resolution, you could have contacted me directly as the owner, which you never did.
Wonderful log cabin in the mountains for a family trip!
