Amazing Snow Gettaway
The description of the property was accurate. The property was clean and well maintained. The owner did a great job of interfacing with us. He answered questions quickly and appropriately. The description of how to access the house was excellent. There were plenty of effective directions but not so many you feel nit picked. I would totally recommend this property to friends and family. We went for the snow and we got a ton of it. The house was perfect for a winter retreat with family. It was plenty large with 3 bedrooms, one with two bunk beds. so you could conceivably sleep 8 people. It was perfect for a family of 5. When we drove up into the mountains the weather was horrendous. A very large amount of snow had already fallen. I was very worried about getting to the property without getting stuck. The property is fairly close to the freeway, about 10 minutes drive but it is part of a really nice community of ski cottages. The roads were well plowed and even the driveway was plowed allowing us to pull right up into the garage. The garage was very small side to side. We had to be very careful driving in and out but it was well worth it because almost 7 feet of snow fell in about 3 days. The house has an awesome wood stove. After reading the instruction on how to light the fire in the stove I got a good idea how to use the stove. We had ample heat the entire time even thought it was 4 degrees outside at night. In fact at one point the family was complaining about being too hot. It was a balmy 88 in the house. But with a little practice the wood stove heated the whole house in a very pleasant way and coming in out of the snow, cold and wet, was just fine because we could snuggle up on the couch and chairs near the stove and quickly get warm. Soda Springs Ski Resort is very close and was fun for the family. If I were a serious skier it would not be very appealing but there are great ski areas nearby and even a cross-country ski facility closer than Soda Springs. Everything in the house worked and worked well. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, appliances and cookware. It was easy to cook the meals that we brought and there were even condiments and things which we forgot at home waiting for us to use. The beds were clean and the blankets were really warm. All in all that was one of the best winter snow holidays I have ever had and the Hemlock Hideaway made it absolutely perfect!
