"My family of 12 (6 adults, 6 kids ages 9-17) just returned from a great trip to Dillon Colorado, where we stayed in this wonderful 6 bedroom home. The owners were very friendly, and super easy to work with. The layout was perfect with two large bedrooms (king bed in one, 4 twins and 2 fulls in the other!) and a bathroom upstairs where we put all the kids. There was a large landing area too, with a futon where yet another person could have slept. This left 3 additional bedrooms with direct bathroom access (2 on the main floor and one in the basement) for the adult couples, and yet another bedroom in the basement for my teenage son, who wasn't so much into the togetherness! The kids had a great time playing pool in the basement. We made s'mores at the fire pit out back, and cooked wonderful meals in the upstairs kitchen. The kitchen was a bit disorganized, so we had a little trouble finding things, but in the end we were able to locate almost everything we needed. We had a minor issue with the washing machine, but it was fixed immediately with no hassle on our part.
My only word of warning would be a simple heads up about a unique situation at the house. As the owner states, this is a vacation home they use nearly every weekend. My family loves to use VRBO because we get to move into a fabulous house in a great vacation area, and pretend it is OURS for the week. Staying at the Dillon house was more like staying with another family, minus the people. The owner's things were everywhere. This was a bit off-putting when we first arrived, but by the end we didn't really mind. I just think it's important to go into it knowing what you are getting into. When I expressed concern about this before our arrival, the owner was very kind to clear out some extra space for us, which helped a lot. The biggest problem we had was in the kitchen. There was not a single empty cabinet to unload the food we had brought (12 people eat a lot of food in a week!) and the fridge and freezer were about half full with the owner's things. After a little relocating and consolidating, we were able to make room and get our stuff unpacked.
All in all, this was a great house and a good rental experience. I would recommend renting this house to anyone!"
