5/5 Excellent

A wonderful stay
This chalet is the cutest ever. With a 2 1/2 year old and a 5 year old we were able to make some magical Christmas time memories here. Big Powderhorn Mountain wasn’t open yet but Blackjack was about 15 min away. We got the kids on skis and it went great. There were hiking trails close by. Even some that led to small waterfalls. We took the 20 min drive to Lake Superior and, even with the cold, the kids were mesmerized by the waves and rock finding. Oh and the owners of this chalet (Jocelyn and Aaron) have chickens! We were able to purchase some eggs and even feed them! Everything was also done very COVID conscious which we appreciated very much. Great overall experience.

5/5 Excellent

An Inspiring Property in Timbuktu!
Could not recommend this rental highly enough. Aaron and Joce have an incredible, eco-conscious property. Not to mention, they are very accommodating hosts. From the local hard cider, to fresh farm eggs and recommendations on any and all attractions around the area. You would be hard pressed to find a better rental than Timbuktu.

5/5 Excellent

family getaway
We stayed at Timbuktu for just under a week in early January. It was fantastic. Location was outstanding for skiing, hiking, and grabbing food/groceries. With ski chalets closed, it was so convenient to be able to run back to the house for warming up and lunch. Lake Superior and a handful of great winter hikes to see some water falls are all within a 15min drive. So great. The house was excellent. Clean, organized, fully loaded with everything you'd need. Wi-Fi was good for my kids that were doing distance learning and for streaming movies at night. Our two dogs loved it too! Super easy access to/from and communication with the owners was outstanding. Quick and easy. It was our first time to this area and we'd love to come back in the summer to further explore the area.

5/5 Excellent

A Great Respite from the World
Our family was looking to disconnect from the bustle of the world and reconnect with one another. We found BOTH at Timbuktu. We could recommend this stay enough. It was everything the listing promised and more. We will definitely be back!

5/5 Excellent

Clean, updated property
