Best of both worlds
This VRBO was actually much more like staying as a welcomed guest in a lovely mountain home than just a rented accomodation. We were in the Stardust Chalet (apartment) part of the property. The owners went above and beyond in providing many thoughtful touches and information for us to make the most of our stay. Due to weather concerns, (snow in May previous week and predicted incoming huge storm) they worked with us on making sure we go there in a safe timeframe, even re-checking their local microclimate for ice warnings during our check-in. . By the same token, even if you'd stayed at someone's home that you didn't know too well (like visiting relatives you rarely see out of town), you would still show enjoyment and respect for your host's hospitality and efforts by cleaning up after yourself and being thoughtful as though it were your own home. This is the basis of these owners philosophy of providing GREAT options and information and being there for guest needs but at the same time, we felt like we were in the most wonderful private lake view room with a porch, tables, lounge chairs, and more; home-like touches that really were the best of both worlds----comfort of a relaxing home-y environment with the access to landlord support if we needed anything. SO much better than a typical commercial property. I have a difficult time in a typical heavily used resort/type/vacation properties especially with old dust, allergens, damp/moldy environs that develop from cabins in the woods etc. This was SO much better: clean, great amenities, comfortable bed, wonderful kitchen, nearby to both town and area hiking and a fun, happy experience in every way. MANY THANKS Tink and Peter we would love to visit again.
