Property condition


    It’s a bit outdated but for us it served its purpose there was enough space a full kitchen and close to Northstar. I don’t know if we would stay here again as we are not big into snow sports but It was nice enough with plenty of room for a group of 8.

        • Liked: Cleanliness
        • Disliked: Amenities

        The heating was a problem. Downstairs is very cold and when we turned the heater up, upstairs became hot. It was uncomfortable. So the 2nd day we left right after when we were done with skiing. Every thing else seems fine, but I would not choose to stay in this property again because of the heating issue.

        • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

        This property was great for family vacation. We stayed in a three bedroom town home and it accommodated my family of five perfectly. There was even room for an additional three people. The maintenance staff worked overtime making sure that everything in the condo worked perfectly and were were comfortable on a snowy day. I recommend this property to any family seeking safe fun family vacation during winter.
