Main Level

Entry and Kitchen

When you open the front door, you enter our cozy foyer, with its view into the kitchen. The entry hall has plenty of pegs for coats, and cubbies for hats, gloves and other mountain gear. There's even a small bench to sit on as you get ready to see the rest of the house.

The kitchen has plenty of room for cooking and entertaining. From the granite-topped island that seats six to the stainless steel appliances, with its long counters and open floor plan, the kitchen is a perfect space for meal preparation and serving, as well as conversation and good times. We've included a coffee maker, microwave, cappuccino machine and all sorts of other conveniences to make your time in the kitchen go as smoothly as possible. If you prefer, the stainless steel gas grill is just outside the front door.

Dining and Great Room

From the kitchen the house opens up to our great room, with its high ceiling and warm. There you have a panoramic view of the mountains through our large picture windows and French doors. The fireplace is in the center of the room, surrounded by a leather sofa and chairs and flanked by a pair of huge wooden rocking chairs. When the views pale or the sun goes down, there's always the huge plasma TV with satellite and DVD/VCR, with more than 40 movie titles for your entertainment.

Nearby is the dining area, with seating for ten at the table - and it's only steps from the kitchen. You can enjoy the same views whether you are eating in the dining area, warming by the fireplace or relaxing in the comfy leather furniture.


The French doors in the great room lead directly to our wrap-around deck, offering spectacular views and a cozy hot tub. Towels are conveniently located near the doors, and there are hooks outside as well. What could be better than that view, while seated in a hot tub, surrounded by crisp, mountain air?

Bunk Room and Bath

The Bunk Room is the main floor bedroom. It sleeps seven, with its three bunk beds (and one with a trundle bed as well). There's plenty of storage space for everyone, with multiple dressers and a full-size closet. The full bath is right outside the room. Our bathrooms all come with complete towel sets, as well as travel-sized soaps, shampoos and so on to make you even more comfortable.

Upper Level


Heading up the stairs you enter the loft, which doubles as office space. The large desk, with chair, overlooks the great room and allows for plenty of working space. With our wireless Internet connection, you can surf the web easily from here - or any other room in the house, for that matter. The futon in the loft can be used as an additional sleeping area or just a place to sit and relax. Did you bring a good book? If not, check out our variety of titles on the bookshelf here. Whatever your decision, the loft still offers a great view of both the great room fireplace and the mountains.

Master Bedroom

The spacious Master Bedroom suite comprises the second floor bedroom. This private retreat has a queen size bed and plenty of room. Amenities include a television with satellite, multiple dressers, a large closet for storage and even reading lights at the head of the bed. Right outside the windows is a grove of evergreen trees, which only adds to the relaxed and soothing atmosphere of this room.

Master Bath

The Master Bath can only be accessed from the Master bedroom. This warm, golden room has his and her sinks as well as a spacious, walk-in shower. There's even the added bonus of a beautiful view of the mountains peaking through the trees.

Lower Level

Rec Room

Our basement Rec Room has a foosball table, a flat screen television, DVD, VHS, and a Nintendo Game Cube system. There are plenty of children's books, cards, board games and children's video titles as well. An occasional table offers space to play games, and the large leather sofa pulls out to a comfortable queen sized bed.

Guest Bedroom and Bath

Sage green is the color of the cozy guest bedroom and adjacent bathroom in the basement. Another queen sized bed is available here, and the room boasts plenty of closet space, a large dresser and yet another breathtaking view of the ski hill. The full-sized bathroom has a shower tub and a single sink. As with the other bathrooms, furnishings include towels, paper products, hair dryers and sample sized toiletries.

Sauna and Laundry Room

Other amenities in the basement include a complete laundry room and a dry sauna. A full-size front loading washer and dryer are available for your use, along with complementary soap, bleach and other cleaning products. Across the hall is the sauna. The dipper and ladle make for additional steam, and it's the perfect spot to relax after a dip in the hot tub.
