Amazing location, some great features, but expensive for what you get/have to supply yourself
Amazing location! You can see the skiers from the front window. The lodge is literally right across the street. The cabin is complete with a fridge, microwave, outdoor grill (propane included), oven (oven is very old; we had problems lighting the stove top), fireplace (bring your own firewood), dishwasher, coffee maker, and central heat that worked fine. The kitchen is well stocked with pots, pans and spatulas. There are only enough utensils for 12 people (bring plastic utensils if you don't want to wash dishes after each meal). You get access to a nice, outdoor spa and a coin-operated washer/dryer, which are shared with the other renters on location (not sure the # of other people). It is spacious/great for accommodating 12 people. There are enough towels, blankets and pillows. Cons: The beds and pillows are hard as rocks, and the blankets are very old and scratchy, so consider bringing your own. The couch is broken, but usable. Everything in the cabin is very old. There is one (box) tv that has extremely spotty cable. The internet service was also extremely spotty. The driveway is exceptionally steep, which is really dangerous in the winter. When we arrived, it hadn't been shoveled or salted. Our cars couldn't make it up the driveway. This also made carrying our luggage and ski gear up and down really challenging. Additionally, there are stairs at the top of the driveway, up to the cabin, that were covered in snow/ice, and the handrail was icy. Very dangerous and frustrating. However, notably, the staircase was shoveled the next day. You have to bring your own tp, paper towels, trash bags, and soap for the bathrooms, which is NOT in-line with VRBO's "home away from home" motto. The owner never confirmed whether dish soap, dishwasher soap and a sponge would be provided, so we had to bring our own. These 3 things ended up being in the kitchen, but may have been left by the previous renters. Additionally, while there is plenty of available parking, you only get 3 spots, and will be charged $20/day for any additional vehicles. For the price you pay for this place, we were VERY disappointed with how cheap & distasteful this all was. The cabin runs out of hot water quickly. After 3 people showered, it took an hour for the water to heat back up. I had a lot of issues communicating with the owner leading up to our stay, which left us scrambling at the last minute to buy/pack all of the items we hadn't expected we would need.
