Cozy home with tons of amenities, but not easy to get to after heavy snow

  • 4 of 5

A huge group of us stayed here during a snowy weekend to hit the slopes, and this 4bd/2.5ba suited us well (well, we could have used more bathrooms, but you can't beat this price point). Great location, cozy layout, comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen and bathrooms, functional heating, great fireplace, and lots of parking space. The only issues I had with the house were that the bathroom trashcan in the master on the entrance level had leftover trash in it, and the same bathroom's shower bar broke. Fortunately, we could still shower, and Vacasa called me back the next morning to follow up on my report. The only major gripe I want to share is with house accessibility when it's snowing due to flat roads without 24/7 maintenance. We got to the cabin super late (3 AM) because of the persistent snow showers and tons of traffic on the road...only to be greeted by waist-high snow in the driveway blocking our access to either door. While snow is unavoidable and manageable, we then had to chip away at ice on the driveway in order to get the cars through, meaning the roads must have not been well-maintained earlier to allow ice to form. Shoveling snow + chipping ice = hour delay, meaning we all hit the sack at 4 AM (and then woke up 3 hours later to hit the slopes). I don't know what resources are available for better road clearing, but I recommend that Vacasa at least leave a shovel right by the driveway entrance so that future guests don't have to sacrifice a tribute to wade through waist-high snow to get to the door to get the shovel from inside. All in all, if snow is not your enemy when you stay here, you're in for a treat.

Perfect place to enjoy a snowy weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We feel like we were home.. It’s a warm and cozy cabin. Having dinner with my family while watching the snow falling through those wide windows, made it a perfect place to be and to enyoy a winter weekend!

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

From the start, vacasa made the actual booking a breeze. I was able to speak to someone over the phone. The actual property was absolutely beautiful. They had every amenity my family and I were looking for. I'm definitely going to book this and other properties through vacasa in the future.
