About the Property
3 Bedroom, 2 Bath, with Beautiful Mountain Views
Master BR has queen-size bed. Another bedroom has a queen-size bed. Third bedroom has twin beds. Loft trundle bed pulls out for 2 more twin beds. Bedroom with twin beds includes a mini-loft where kids love to hang out and play.
The bathrooms are set up so that they seem like a lot more than 2, so that everyone can get ready at the same time for those incredible Kirkwood powder mornings. There is an extra sink in the master BR, and there are 2 large sinks outside of the shower/toilet upstairs.
Some Kirkwood homes require a drive up a steep road or driveway. Not our cabin. Our street is nearly level with Kirkwood Meadows Dr, with parking right in front. The chalet is half of a duplex, and we share a path with the next door unit which makes it easier to get in, except right after a big storm when you may have to carve some snow steps (snow shovel provided). You cannot see nor hear the next door unit from inside our cabin.
We hate having to bring paper goods to a rental, so we provide everything you need except your own food. All linens and towels are provided. Well equipped kitchen has been enjoyed even by professional chefs. Coffee-maker, coffee-grinder, toaster, small micro-wave oven.
Wood-burning stove, with glass door to watch the fire, really creates a cozy ambience. Super efficient, the wood stove will heat the entire cabin and requires much less wood than a fireplace. Plenty of logs, kindling and paper provided. Or use the furnace. Your choice. There are lots of wood pegs for hanging cold or wet jackets, gloves, etc by the wood-stove or in most other rooms of the cabin. We even have an electrical boot/glove warmer/dryer in case you left your boots in the car overnight. If you email or call in advance, we will turn on the furnace before you arrive so that the cabin is warm when you arrive.
Cabin has free high-speed wifi, a flat-screen TV with Blu-Ray/DVD player. No cable service, so bring some movies or watch one from our library. We also have lots of books to read and several games. A stereo system connects to your iPhone, iPod or other music device.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

About the owner: Have been skiing at Kirkwood for many years. Active in Kirkwood community affairs, including improvements to utilities, former president of Kirkwood Meadows Association.
Why the Owner Chose West Meadows, Kirkwood, CA, USA:
Our whole family loves Kirkwood and in all seasons. The skiing/snowboarding/cross-country skiing is some of the best in the US. The powder is frequently truly awesome. Kirkwood, as a part of Vail Resorts, has some of the best ski run grooming anywhere. I can say that with some authority, as I have skied in 10 US states plus Canada and Switzerland, at dozens of ski resorts, including many of the most famous ones. Kirkwood is much less crowded and is more laid back than Lake Tahoe, and yet you can drive there in 40 minutes to get all of the recreation and entertainment available. We like being so close to the lifts and yet having the privacy of being in the homes just between the lifts and Highway 88. The summer hiking, fishing, horseback riding, boating, mountain biking and other activities are really great too. I had stayed at and visited many ski cabins/condos and worked with an architect in designing our cabin to be fun and easy for a ski vacation.
