The Columbine house proved to be a great accommodation for our group of adults and kids. We found the description in the listing to be accurate. The layout of the home worked well for our group but getting from one level to another could be tricky for anyone with limited mobility as the stairs are pretty steep and narrow. We found the kitchen to be clean and fully equipped for our needs and having the gas grill was also a plus. The staff in the office were very friendly and attentive to our needs. The view of the hill from the house was nice and having the shuttle service was awesome for our group. We all left hoping that a ski weekend becomes an annual tradition!

This house fit our needs just fine, we had a mix of skiers and people who were just along to enjoy the weekend. Plenty for everyone to do if not skiing. The ladder to the loft and the spiral staircase could make this house inconvenient for older people. The variety of the beds was nice and made sleeping arrangements easy to figure out. The deck was nice and allowed us to sit outside and enjoy a few drinks after skiing. The only drawback for this property was that the map they use to describe the location of the house made it seem like the house was a lot closer to the hill than it is. Not sure who is responsible to plow the driveway but we received almost a foot of snow the weekend we were there and I didn't see anyone at the house to plow the parking area.
Had a Great Time!

Despite high temperatures only around or below zero we managed to ski and had a great time! The unit was very nice and had a nice area for 9 to eat.
The heat was a bit difficult to regualte between levels and after returning home we found evidence that critters visited our luggage at night.
We ahva pretty easy group so this didnt bother us. Would do it again.
Great retreat in the north woods

Skiing was great this year with Indianhead and Blackjack having all their runs open. It is very close to Big Powderhorn Mt and is as advertised. We were a group of six and there was plenty of space to spread out and dining room table was big enough to easily fit 8. Kitchen was well stocked with plenty of cooking and dining ware. With three bedrooms and a loft to sleep in everyone had plenty of space. Wife's favorite item after a day of skiing was to sit in the great room with the wood burning stove reading and watching a movie. This was our fifth time to Bpla each time has been a pleasant experience and this was the best house so far, overall an excellent value.

The columbine cabin was perfect for our three day ski vacation. It had all the kitchen equipment we needed to keep well fed. It was close to the slopes. We both downhill and cross country skiied. Fire place was easy to use. Only down side was low water pressure in the showers. Otherewise it was clean and well maintained.
Wonderful time with family and friends.

My family and my sister's family stayed here for a couple nights. The property was clean and had everything we needed. Although no air conditioning on the main level, and it being the middle of summer, the bedrooms on the main level stayed very cool and comfortable. The service we received was friendly and prompt. Since it was a holiday weekend, the office was closed, but they gave me a cell number to reach them anytime with questions. We will definitely stay here again!!!
Nice place to have fun and relax.
