Another great weekend at the mountains

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year staying at this house for a relaxing weekend before Christmas. The views are great, the amenities fantastic, overall a great place to unwind. Waking up to sunrise over the lake/mountains/valley, then swimming laps before while the coffee brews is incredibly refreshing. The house is well designed with many areas to hang out. I'm sure even much larger groups wouldn't feel crowded or have issues finding room.

A wonderful winter trip to Wisp!

  • 5 of 5

Doug's place is amazing and exactly as it looks in the pictures! We had an wonderful time and Doug was prompt on answering any and all questions we had, making our stay as stress free as possible. The slopes are a quick walk away as well, which is a huge plus for those of us that were skiing/snowboarding. The pool was properly heated and the hot tub and sauna were also perfect for those in my group that were not skiing and snowboarding. The kitchen was also well stocked with everything you need. We will definitely be returning!

Just a few tips: As stated in the house instructions, bring your own toiletries and trash bags as they are not provided. Also, look up the weather conditions before arriving, because if the roads are icy I would definitely recommend bringing a four wheel drive car since the road is a bit downhill. This isn't necessary, but would help more during more extreme conditions. Lastly, make sure you have a lighter and starter logs if you plan on using the fireplace.

Thank you for everything, Doug. You will be hearing from us again!

Amazing property, something for everybody!

  • 5 of 5

We got the family together to celebrate my wife's 60th birthday. In all we had 19 people, including 3 children. We stayed at Majestic Log Chateau from 10/13 thru 10/17 and everyone had a great time. The property was everything that was advertised. With 19 people and 3 levels to the home there was plenty of room for everyone to do their own thing! Even at meal time with the large table, all the chairs and the stools at the kitchen counter there was ample seating for everyone. The views from the deck were spectacular during this time. The home is well maintained, clean, and had everything we needed for our stay. The pool, the hot tub and the sauna were all in working order and got a lot of use during our stay. There was plenty of wood for the fireplace on the first floor and the gas fireplace on the lower level worked just fine. The weather for our stay was perfect which allowed us to use the two grills on the deck. We had 9 vehicles, including 4 pickup trucks, and didn't have any problem accommodating them. Everyday someone can to the house to check the chemical levels in the pool and hot tub. Doug was great to work with. We had many questions leading up to our stay and he always responded quickly. I would give this property 5 out of 5 stars for any large group looking to get away for any period of time. Thanks Doug for providing such a great property for us to have a wonderful get-a-way.

Beautiful Neighborhood and Views

  • 4 of 5

The neighborhood and property are beautiful. The views are great! The house is very large and accommodated our big family for our family reunion. There are some things that need to be repaired and updated, we left a detailed list. We cooked dinner everyday for 23 people, so I would say that the utensils and kitchen tools could be more updated rather then a hodgepodge. The bedrooms and bathrooms were nice. Great living space and dining area for all. The kids loved the pool and spa. I wish I had more time for the sauna. Definitely a great place to vacation with a crowd. Thank you!

Beautiful House and Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We had a family reunion at Doug's house and it was the perfect venue for it. We had a wonderful time. The house is beautiful and clean. Plenty of space for 12 adults and 7 kids. We enjoyed the pool, hot tub and pool table. It's walking distance to ASCI and highly recommend the white water rafting. The rental office was very accomodating when we had questions. Thank you Doug for having your house available for rent. I highly recommend renting Doug's house. We'll definitley come back next time.

Good for large group and good communication from rental agent

  • 4 of 5

We had a group of 20 adults who stayed at the house for 3 nights. We had no issues while we were there and everything was in working order. The pool could have been a little bit warmer and I believe someone from our group asked the pool maintenance guy who came in to turn it up but it was probably too late by then to make a difference. The hot tub was perfect and we all enjoyed it. There were plenty of towels provided and linens and bedding on all the beds. The kitchen was well stocked and everything worked okay. Issues we did encounter which would have made it a better stay were the lack of extra trash bags and extra toilet paper. We had to go out and buy these items right away. There were also no instructions as to what to do with the trash or towels and linens at the end of our stay. We did find there was a dumpster and the end of the street. Since there was no large trash cans outside the house anywhere to put the trash we had to take it down to the dumpster as animals got into one of the trash bags our first night there. Also the grounds need to be picked up of all trash better. The view from the deck of the lake is beautiful but there is a section of trees cut down that had trash just thrown into it and looked quiet unsightly. It really detracted from the beauty of the view. The pool table was missing the Que ball. We had to improvise and play without it. Also there are two grills on the deck thankfully as one of the grills ran out of propane while we were cooking.

One other thing I think is extremely important to mention is that Doug Warden the rental agent was great and responded quickly to all my emails, etc. It was a pleasure dealing with him.
