After a day at the slopes, retreat to your fully stocked gourmet kitchen with cherry cabinets, endless granite countertops, double oven and meile dishwasher to clean even the pots and pans.

Nice short stay in a beautiful cottage
My sister and her family as well as myself enjoyed our stay at this cottage. It was in a very nice location, the cottage was so clean including a beautiful clean pool, although a little cool this late in the season. The cottage has a very well equipped kitchen and amazing great room. It must so nice here in the fall with the leaves changing - the view from the great room is awesome! The Cottage is also closed located to ski hill for the winter season. As for the later summer, it was great, it was a little cool in the morning but there are really nice outdoor spaces to sit as well. The fire pit was great as well and we used it every evening.

5/5 Excellent
