Excellent multi-family home for vacation!!!

  • 5 of 5

We shared this home with 5 families (20 people) for a ski vacation in January. The home was exactly what we were expecting from the pictures. The owner, Doug, is incredibly nice and very responsive by email about any matter. We did not have issues with the home while we stayed. The view was breath-taking!

There was plenty of firewood stacked right at the door as pictured and the home stays incredibly warm and cozy. A few bedrooms were noticeably cooler at night and these had space heaters. Everyone reported a very comfortable sleeping experience. Even the pull out and trundle beds were high quality, full thickness mattresses and the linens, bed covers, and pillows were all very high end as well. The bedrooms and bathrooms were very spacious. Masters with daybeds/trundles had plenty of space to move even with the trundles in use. The kids loved the animals looming above all over the house, especially the bear!

The living room/dining room/kitchen area is HUGE with the most nice seating we have ever seen (have been vacationing with this big group in the area for 8 years). Kitchen table could seat our whole crew at once and still have space for food- awesome!! We played 3 board games simultaneously on that big table! The appliances and kitchen were in great working order and everything we needed for preparing big meals was there. There is a separate ice making machine!

The pool/ sauna/ and hot tub were all put to great use. Sauna big enough for 8 adults. Pool big enough to have a volleyball game and was warm and cleaned professionally every day. Hot tub was 104 degrees and could fit 8 comfortably- again cleaned daily by a professional.

There was not enough snow due to unseasonably warm January temps to make this truly ski in/ski out, but the closest lift was about 200 yards away and was an easy walk even for our young kids carrying skis/poles. The beginners in our group took the closest lift right over to the top of the mountain to access green slopes and could get back home easily as well. Experts could walk and head right down Main St.

Wisp itself is a wonderful family friendly resort. Our children (youngest age 11) are very safe wondering off in groups without parents on their tails every minute. Teens have the run of the resort without hesitation. Staff is all very nice.

We definitely highly recommend this house and this resort to other fun family groups!! We had a stellar vacation! Thank you Doug!

Great house..great location.

  • 4 of 5

We had our family of 20 and the house was very accommodating. Wood burning fireplace with a good supply of wood. Pool, sauna and hot tub are excellent amenities and well kept.professional kitchen appliances were a plus including an industrial style ice maker. Location to the slopes, shopping, etc are also excellent. Sufficient parking for large families. If there was 1 downside it was the uneven heating of the house. Our 1st floor master bedroom and bath were uncomfortably cold as were a few other rooms. More quilts or blankets would have been helpful. Overall though a great home.
