super smooth rental of a beautiful big home

  • 5 of 5

This lodge is really special. It has modern appliances and fixtures but still has the feel of a mountain lodge. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We stayed for 3 nights in June for a family reunion with 20 people and had a great time. Even when it rained on one day, no one complained about staying inside for a while because there was plenty of space and things to do. The rental process was about as smooth as it could possibly be. The owners provided detailed information in a lodge manual, even including suggested recipes, and I received the security deposit back less than a week after we departed.

Simply the Best

  • 5 of 5

For the past 7 years, as a Christmas present to the families of their 5 children, my parents have rented a ski in/ski out house to be enjoyed by all their children and grandchildren. Over the years, our family has tried 4 different houses, but there were always the, "If only this house had . . ." This year, we stayed at your home, Mr. and Mrs. Merrill, and it was simply perfect; one that we will hopefully rent for many more years and create more incredible memories. Each couple appreciated a bedroom with attached bathroom while all the cousins (grandkids) enjoyed the bunkrooms. The best part of the trip was listening to the laughter coming from those rooms as the cousins played games and simple enjoyed their time together. Together we sat down for great dinners and drinks in the large kitchen/dining area and the adults continued the fun with drinks and cards on the deck with a roaring fire. We all loved the ski in/ski out accessibility which allowed for everyone to tackle the slopes whenever they wished. Perfect home that assisted in creating fabulous memories! As our parents age, these trips become more and more important, appreciated, and valued. Thanks You (The 5 Campbell Children and their families and amazing parents)!

Great for reunions

  • 5 of 5

This is an amazing home in a great location. We had five families with kids- the bunk rooms were perfect for the kids, and the parents enjoyed the nice bedrooms with adjoining baths. There are not too many houses with dining rooms where so many people can be seated comfortably! The outdoor balcony/patio offers a great gathering place with a beautiful view of the adjoining woods and sky. We hope to return again soon.

Royal Oak

This house is everything you could want in a Ski house. We had 5 families (10 adults and 14 children) everyone had their own space. The kids absolutely loved the Bunk rooms, it made it so much more enjoyable for them all, a camp-like feel.

Being able to step out of the house and jump on the slopes is amazing. The Mudroom/Locker room makes it much easier for everyone to keep track of things and everyone can get ready to go much faster.

We hope to make many more trips. I almost hesitate to say how great the house is for fear of creating more demand.
