5/5 Excellent

The rental was great! Was everything like the description stated! Had everything we needed!
The property was everything as described, was a little worried because we had never used Vacasa before and wasn’t sure it was something we could trust, but it turned out great!! The house was beautiful, and plenty of space for our whole crew! We enjoyed our stay and hope to be able to do it again!
Stayed 3 nights in Dec 2021

Fantastic Home! A few things to know beforehand...
This house was amazing! It was very clean and the pictures of the home are very accurate. It smelled so clean when we arrived! It is in a gated community where there are not many homes yet. The house was perfect. There are a couple of things renters should know. Not a big deal but helpful to know ahead of time. You can not check in early. We got there 1 hour before check I. Noone was there but we could not enter the home until 4pm. Not a big deal but good to know. Bring firewood. There is a fantastic fireplace in the den on the main level. You have to purchase wood for it elsewhere. Not a big deal, but nice to know. Also know there are no spices, oils, sugar, etc in the home. Not a huge deal but nice to know. There were salt and pepper shakers. Check the gas grill tanks when you arrive. We found ours empty and the Vacasa folks delivered a filled one the next day. We didn't get to grill when we wanted to that day but we had plan B for dinner that night. The only reason I am mentioning these things is that is that it is good to know these things ahead. This home has lots of extras! A bread maker, pizza oven, a waffle maker, crock pots, and lots of great games. This was a fantastic property! The views are incredible! Beds are comfortable. It was wonderful to bring our dogs. We would absolutely come back!

4/5 Good

Great home, but a few issues
This house was AMAZING. However there was an issue with wasps and bugs inside the house. We tried to keep doors and windows closed at all times, but wasps were on the third floor, and there was nothing we could to about those.

5/5 Excellent

Couldn’t of asked for a nicer house to have our family vacation. Clean and spacious with a “to die for” view. Our elderly parents found the master bedroom and bath on the main floor very convenient and easy to maneuver in. Huge gourmet kitchen with all the bells and whistles. We were very happy that there were separate temperature controls for the upstairs bedrooms. Beds and chairs were all very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this house.

5/5 Excellent

Luxurious stay in the mountains!
This is a great cabin - fitted with high end amenities- from the living space, game room, kitchen etc. Linen was plentiful and clean. The views from here are spectacular. Close to a lot of activities and treks. The only issue is driving to the cabin in the dark- which can get a bit tricky. Will definitely come back.
