"It's 2 stories. You walk into the top story. The top story has a large outside deck, living room, kitchen, dining area, 2 master bedrooms, and 2 full bathrooms. The bottom floor has a half bath, bedroom with a bunk bed, the laundry room, and a large living room with 2 fold out couches. It can easily accommodate 2 families and allow the kids to have their own space on the bottom floor.
The good: clean, 2 large living rooms, plenty of sleeping space, quiet, beautiful views, the price, fast wifi, 8-10 minute drive to the base of the mountain, nice/responsive owners, lots of hot water, nice appliances, outside flat play area for kids to play in the snow and a slight hill for them to sled (not very many places on the mountain have outside space for kids to play safely).
The okay: the walkway to the house was icy and everyone in our family slipped on it while loading/unloading (there was a bit of ice salt provided but not enough to help with that ice). The parking spot down the road to park close to the green ski trail would be great if you can use the chili lift. The wind was bad when we were there so they kept closing the chili lift. If you miss the chili lift before 4:00 when it closes, you risk not being able to ski to your vehicle and ending up stuck at the bottom of the mountain. If you park there, be sure you can take the chili lift to the top of the mountain to then ski to your vehicle. Also, they are remodeling the home.... parts are finished while other parts need a bit more work. For example, small parts of the floor and kitchen cabinet toe board aren't completed. It's not very noticeable and didn't affect our stay. One last thing, there is an automatic outside bright light attached to the house. Maybe we weren't smart enough to find the switch but it was really bright coming through our window even with the drapes pulled.
The space in the house, price, and outside environment made it an excellent stay. We would stay here again and we would recommend it. Thank you!"
