Our group of 4 families have been skiing Powderhorn for many years, but took 7 years off as all our kids attended college. This past weekend, we got the group back together and stayed at Matterhorn. Our stay these was fabulous! The 6 bedrooms, all with their own bathroom, is a great layout. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed and the large living room handled our group well as we watched college basketball when we were not on the slopes. The snow conditions were incredible for mid March! The new Lodge is beautiful. A great weekend and we will be back. Already booked for March 2015!
One of the Best Rental Homes on the Mountain!

Excellent home for large groups. Many bedrooms with private bathrooms is a huge benefit. House is clean, updated, and spacious. Location is great, very close to main lodge. Weather was too cold to be out skiing but it didn't matter. There are many games available in the home, kept us busy all day. Had great Family Time! We have stayed in many different homes on the mountain, this is by far one of the Best!
Nice setup for a group of 12 adults!

Our group really enjoyed staying at this house. Everything from the entryway that was perfect for all the ski gear to the six bedrooms and six bathrooms made our group feel right at home. It was also nice that everyone could fit around the kitchen table. This house is definitely one of the best that Powderhorn has to offer.

Service has always been outstanding working with the people at Big Powderhorn Lodging. We have been staying at Powderhorn for 16 ski seasons. This was our first year staying at Matterhorn. We loved the comfortable feeling of the place. Very clean and a great place for large groups to visit. Loved having six bathrooms all connected to the bedrooms. The whirlpool was OK but a hot tub would be better for our group (maybe outside). Loved the gas grill and the fire pit. Thanks for owners for having a very clean and comfortable place to stay.

We had for families with children from 2 to 17 stay here. Amazingly there was enough room for everyone and the single living area worked. Beds were comfortable and it was nice to have a bathroom for each.
We had a few issues in the kitchen, nothing major just a missing cord and a non-working blender. Everything was clean and well maintained.

Matterhorn worked out great for all 8 of us, siblings & spouses. It was nice for each bedroom to have its own bathroom. Kitchen was stocked with everything we needed for making meals, having two coffee makers was really nice. We loved the location and enjoyed the outdoor sitting area. we would definitely go back again.
Excellant time for entire family

Matterhorn- great location-- but needs work!

We rotate annually among Bear Necessities, Matterhorn and one other. It was very disappointing to have every window screen broken in the house. They were all bent, had paper towels stuffed in them, or didn't close well (sliding screen door). Consequently the mosquitoes ate us alive in the house. Since it was a warm, humid weekend, we had to try and get some breeze flowing through the house, and without air conditioning, we really could have used intact screens to assist the fans we purchased at Wal-Mart.
On the positive side, the house is furnished nicely, a new U shaped sofa was added since we were there last-- very nice.
Bottom line-- you cannot rent a unit that has screens that are so banged up--- fix them up or don't rent it out.

The Matterhorn was great and very comfortable for a large group. Rooms all had temp. control, the beds were good, and the kitchen was well stocked. Service when called was quick and pleasant.
Great ski weekend at the Matterhorn!

Our extended family group rented the Matterhorn for a three-day weekend in January and had a fantastic time. The bedrooms are plentiful and roomy and several had bunk beds which accommodated all the cousins nicely. The kitchen has been updated and has plenty of room for several people to work at once. Our favorite feature was the two large areas for lounging--a huge sectional couch and bench seating around the gas fireplace. We all fit around the large kitchen table for meals and game playing, and small groups enjoyed the game table upstairs in the loft. Only downside was lack of snow so the adjacent ski run (Shotgun) was closed--but we know this is unusual for northern Michigan. We managed to ski anyway, and generally used the shuttle to get back and forth. The only feature that could be improved would be addition of a hot tub--the small jacuzzi was ok but could only fit two people at a time.

Matterhorn was great in every way. Kitchen was well stocked, beds were comfortable, and the place was clean. The only problem was that the ski run the house is on was not yet open. Apparently they decided to make show on the other side of the mountain first, so we needed to drive to the main lodge when we wanted to ski. Not the unit's fault, obviously...
Great place for a big group!

Wonderful spot right on the ski hill! We hit the fall colors at peak. It was wonderful to walk out the door and see beautiful colors right there. The view from the top of the ski hill was amazing. The lodge was very comfortable for our group of 9. The updated bathrooms and kitchen were very nice and add a lot of comfort! We were a bit disappointed in the tiny one man sauna, but were Finns, we have high standards for a sauna. And the "hot tub" was a jacuzzi, also a little disappointing, but overall didn't effect our stay! I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to friends!
Pampered at Powderhorn
Left on 06/27/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Patti
All of us staying in the chalet appreciated the updated kitchens and bathrooms. You are easily one of the nicest chalets on Powderhorn now. And each bedroom having it's own bathroom, pure luxury. I think that was most commented topic amoung us! Too spoiled! Your chalet is spacious, beautiful, yet secluded. We really felt we were away from the rest of the world yet could easily rejoin civilization in minutes, if we wanted to.
The only thing that does not make sense to us "older folks" is the sunken room by the fireplace. Not comfortable to sit in. I know the kids liked it the last time we stayed there but it really is a waste of space. Would be nice to have a little more seating room that is separate from the sofa.
Also, one of the boards in the deck has a big hole right outside the patio door. Not safe for old folks.
But would we stay again? Absolutely!

Overall we were quite impressed and pleased with the Matterhorn. Clean, comfortable, attractive & welcoming. Very nice common space. Only very minor complaint was a slow shower drain in an upstairs bathroom. In all, it was a lovely three day weekend stay.

Very nice place. We slept twelve in the Matterhorn with no problem. Really liked the 6 bathrooms. Kitchen was spacious and we enjoyed the big couch in the living room.
The biggest downfalls were there was nowhere to get away from the tv besides in your room. We also thought the fireplace "pit" was a waste of space, otherwise nice place.
Summer at Matterhorn

Matterhorn provided a great place to stay and to entertain friends and family during our vacation. It is spacious, quiet, private, and well maintained. We saw grouse and deer from the chalet.

Great setting in the woods. Relaxing stay. A few minor repairs needed and we left the list for housekeepers. Beds very comfortable.
Although a short time, it was great.

We returned to Ironwood for a family reuunion and looked for a place that could lodge the whole family. For our family, it was perfect. With seven adults and five children less than five it was perfect. There was plenty of room for all. We will request this facility in the future.

The Matterhorn was certainly large enough to accommodate our group of five. There are bathrooms and bedrooms enough to accommodate a group twice our size. The design/layout of the house is perfect for group dynamics, whether to share meals, play games, or just socialize in the dining area & great room.
Our criticisms of the house are somewhat picky. First of all, the weather was unusually hot and since the Matterhorn does not have air conditioning, sleeping especially upstairs was difficult some nights. Several of the screened windows had screens that had holes/tears in them, so we didn't open them. Secondly, the furniture in the great room should probably be updated/replaced soon. The couch is showing wear, and the television set is outdated and small for the room. Also, we had trouble with the smoke detector going off when we used the jacuzzi.
My wife and I are from Bessemer originally, and we have been back many times, and we always enjoy the old, familiar surroundings. On this trip we brought along our son, his wife and their 7 year old daughter. My daughter-in-law clearly missed the a/C.
We have stayed at several of your other deluxe/premier properties in the past (Snowflake, Shannon, Fallview, to name a few). We were not as impressed by Matterhorn as these others.

This was our 4th trip to Big Powderhorn and our biggest group yet; 8 adults 2 teenagers and 6 children! This house was perfect. Plenty of space for everyone and everything. The entryway had space for ALL of our wet/snow covered gear & clothing and was heated--so everything was dry the next morning! We loved how each of the 6 bedrooms had their own bathroom. The "hot tub" was more like a very large bathtub with jets, but whatever--it was nice to hop into after a day on the slopes. We usually take this trip in February, but this year we went over winter break in December, which I guess is kind of early in the season. So when we got up and saw that the ski run outside (Shotgun)was NOT open yet for the season, we were concerned. That's why we pay the premium price--for the ski in/ski out feature. After a few phone calls the first day and completely wearing out the FREE shuttle service to and from the house and lodge--Shotgun was open for business the NEXT day! The kitchen had everything we needed to feed the whole gang, mix drinks or whatever. Large dining table and bar stools at the counters meant all could eat at the same time. Loved the fact that someone came by to shovel the deck when it snowed because we used the outdoor grill that night. Great house and location (if you don't come up TOO early in the season).
