Short get away
We planned a ski and snowboard trip and this rental made that trip made it great. Lots of space for activities. We enjoyed cooking together and playing games. The kids had their own room down stairs to make their funny little movies in. Would stay here again for sure! Right next to Iron Fish and about 9 min from Crystal Mountain.

5/5 Excellent

Youth Adventure
Every year my wife and I bring a group to Crystal Mountain. The house was perfect for our adventure. The night we checked it snowed about 7 inches which was great for the mountain the next day. When we got back for the day the drive was plowed. Super huge thanx for that! Everything in the house was a blessing.

4/5 Good

Family Vaca
This was a perfect location for skiing and visiting local places of interest in the area. The kitchen, eating area and lounging made it perfect for our family activities. Had a little trouble with tv but owner was willing to rectify the problem quickly. If all our family had stayed the bathroom situation would have been a little tight, but all in all we would rent the cabin again.
