                                                              Log cabin tucked back on private acreage, perfect for a large gathering with kids and dogs. Worked perfect for our ski weekend. Plenty of room with very nice bedrooms! WE LOVED OUR STAY!

                                                              Nice house, poorly stocked

                                                              Lacks effective heat, kitchen utensils and normal amenities. The venue and property are amazing

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              I am sorry you were disappointed with anything at Bright Star, but if you had called or emailed while you were there, we could have taken care of any issues. For example, there are four thermostats in the house, is it possible you didn't see them all and so the house wasn't warm enough as a result?

                                                              I would have sent my manager over with anything you felt was missing in the kitchen. I would love a list of items that weren't there, so we can restock for the next renters. Also, can you let me know what amenities were not there? We have wifi, Dish TV, soaps, paper products, etc. Please let me know what you expected - we want every renter to be happy!

                                                              Amazing getaway

                                                              Craig K.Denver, CO

                                                              We had a nice time at the home. About 15 minutes from Salida, 20 minutes from BV and 20 from Mt. Princeton Hot Springs. Home has equipment and accessories for large groups (2 coffee makers, big plates and a crock pot) and of coarse lots of what you would expect and need (plates, cutlery, etc etc). We were 7 adults and were never cramped and enjoyed the place.

                                                              The only call out is that the master suite is directly above the kitchen and can be loud.

                                                              The acreage is great, and there is a cord of wood for guests to use which is wonderful.
