We've been renting places with Bpla for the past 5 years, and have been happy with each one we've chosen. Poleski was our favorite so far - as my wife said "The bar has been raised". While we appreciate the charm of the older homes, the modern Poleski was super easy, comfortable, bright and efficient in comparison.
No issues at all with our stay. The hot tub was hot, plenty of Dvds, appliances worked, heat wasn't a problem, pool table was great to have, and the master suite was huge!
Next time we'll book a longer stay to take full advantage of all this property has to offer - we didn't have time for the sauna or to spend time at the basement bar.
Thanks a million Bpla, we'll be back!

Our winter getaway
Left on 03/10/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | Carol and Edward
Comfortable. Spacious. Clean. Needs some better beds! King mattress upstairs was o.k. but twin beds were awful. We really enjoy the hottub and laundry facilities...wish it was a trailside! We never had any maid service all week. Is this something different? Also does the shuttle not run after 8 p.m. during the week? We had to shuttle ourselves sometimes.
Upscale, outstanding rental at a reasonable rate!

Our family of four were "wow-ed" by this awesome rental! The basement rec room sold us all and was better in person than in the photos. We loved all the digital extras, too - the fully stocked DVD libraries on both floor and the in-room sound system in the basement/rec room were a nice surprise. The hot tub and sauna combo with the shower next to them is awesome, and the kids thought being able to watch TV while hot-tubbing was the bomb! I enjoyed plugging in for a little remote work by day at the desk in the loft area - the view from there is amazing! Even little things like the variety and quantity of dishware and pots and pans were perfect. There wasn't anything we needed during our stay (except a little warmer weather!). The only complaint I could make is that the beds are a tad hard, but they were clean and rooms are awesome. For most people, that's probably not a big deal, though, and all the other good things far outweighed this for me. Thanks for sharing your awesome place with us on our winter break from Wisconsin...we will definitely be back!

We had a great time at the Poleski. Plenty of space for a group of 8. Loved the fireplace and hot tub! Cons: beds were uncomfortable and no storage/cupboard space for groceries.

Check in was easy and the staff were very accommodating to our needs for an early check-in. The home is relatively new, was very clean, and had all the extra comforts to make the stay enjoyable. I lit a fire in the big wood fireplace immediately (kindling provided...thank you). The great room area overlooking the mountain was the favorite for the adults, while our boys stayed mostly down stairs where there was a pool table and hot tub. The parking area was freshly plowed for our arrival, staff came by to collect garbage, and the "hot tub guy" was very professional and friendly. Check-out was also a breeze. We are planning to return again next year.

Despite the frigid cold temps, we had a wonderful stay. Fantastic accommodations. Poleski is great place. Plenty of room with lots to do when unable to be outdoors. Great game room, hot tub, and sauna. We had a wonderful time and hope to be back. We will certainly stay again at Poleski!
Again, a very comfortable stay at Poleski.

The space and amenities such as jacuzzi, sauna and pool table are perfect fun for all seven of us. We appreciate the bus service to the slopes, made it easy, drivers were nice. The weather in Michigan has been a challenge but we kind of love that. One of the things we like is the great view of slopes and the comfort of the place. Least of all I thought the jacuzzi could have been cleaned, I would have liked to go in but wasn't happy with water Quality. Read more

Perfect place to stay with multiple families!
Left on 01/16/2014 for a stay in December 2013 | Jamie
Poleski is an ideal place to stay for multiple families. Our group had 7 adults and 5 children and had plenty of room to sleep and enjoy our own space. The view is of the beautiful ski hill and the amenities of the cottage are awesome. Everyone enjoyed the hot tub and sauna on the really cold days and the adults enjoyed the bar and pool table area for a mini vacation of our own. Prior to arriving we were nervous about not being right on the hill, but the shuttle service worked out perfectly and we had absolutely no reason to drive throughout our four day stay. We would all recommend staying in Poleski and can't wait to go back! Read more

From when the reservation were first made to our warm a friendly welcome we suspected we were in for something special. And the as we stepped into the house it was far better than the photos could offer. We built a roaring fire from the beginning all through the end of our stay. The cleanliness and condition of the property is no less than what I experience with my national travels. Fresh paint, new carpet, granite countertops brought all the comforts of home to a winter Christmas skiing paradise. Well done, we will be back!

Bpla has been wonderful to work with. We have stayed in 3 different condos over the past years and it has been wonderful. The staff is great to work with, always friendly and helpful. We are planning another family ski vacation in 2014 at the same location. This condo has all the necessary kitchen pans to accomodate our family of 6. I would highly recommend this place for a family vacation. The only negative is the condo is not on one of the runs, but the bus takes care of this issue.

It was exactly what we needed for adults, and grandchildren. Very close to Powderhorn Lodge, where the reception was held.
I was especially lucky that my sister was able to pick up the keys before we got there, as I did not know if someone would be around when we arrived at 6:30 p.m.
Lighting could have been better in some areas of the
Chalet, but was not a problem.
Certainly would consider a revisit.

We rented Poleski so family to get together and have a place to stay during the week of my son's wedding. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It is a beautiful cabin with all the amenities you could need or want. It is modern and decorated in a Northwood's theme. The beds were a little on the firm side, but otherwise no complaints. The cabin was clean and well kept. The setting is peaceful and serene. Powderhorn Lodging assn. was good to work with. Had no problems at all.

A relaxing vacation at the Poleski

We enjoyed our Memorial Day Vacation at the Poleski. The house is new and has all the amenities included. The neighborhood is quiet and everyone is soo friendly. I would definitely recommend for a stay in Yooperland if you are looking for a relaxing getaway vacation.

We took the kids for spring break, the hot tub and pool table were much used by all. I lived the fireplace and the loft for just looking out the window at the mountain. Probably our favorite family vacation to date, definitely will be repeating next year!!!
Great place to stay for skiing
Left on 02/07/2013 for a stay in January 2013 | Poleski
We stayed here in 2013 and had a great time. Kitchen is fully stocked, hot tub is maintained daily and water was always hot... full stereo system that ran throughout the house was fun. Basement and 3rd level hallway are bigger than pictures show, plenty of room for an air mattress in both locations. Clean, New, probably best option in Bpla village because of amenities. We will be back!
As for service, Bpla has many problems with their staff. Most of the time they are short, or unspoken, and you really get the feeling they don't like their jobs. Year after year, I have a hard time with this because people come up to Hurley for an experience and to have fun, and part of that memory will be the people they meet. Bpla could use a class on "Hug your Customers" Jack Mitchell or any basic service level class as mandatory trng. for their employees. Bpla please understand what you say and how you say it is just as important as the number of runs on the hill at Powderhorn. Read more

I spoke on the phone to the guest about her concerns and it was a very helpful conversation. The guest happens to be in the travel industry so is sensitive to the little nuances of guest services. I appreciated her input so we can become even better. The conversation also gave me the opportunity to share that I had just reviewed three or four dozen other Flipkey reviews for the month of January. Those guests that had something to say about our staff gave them glowing reviews. We accept any opportunity to polish our guest services. This guest’s input gives a chance to shine even more.

We visit the Bessemer area each year to catch up with the family. We need a place to relax between visiting and eating. And we need a space to entertain. Poleski has everything you need to host a pasty fest for 14. A dishwasher is a must and it's there. The great room is comfortable and full of light. It has a great view and lots of outdoor space.

great place for a late spring visit
Left on 05/16/2012 for a stay in May 2012 | LL & JOHN
We usually stay at Powderhorn each year in the summer or early fall for many years. Poleski was the best place we have stayed so far. A very private loft master suite, comforatble common areas and patios, and a fun basement with tv, pool table, sauna etc.
The only minor disappointment was that the hot tub is drained in the off-season, which wasnt made clear when we rented. But not a big deal for our visit.
Best place we ever stayed at so far at Big Powderhorn!

This is the second year that we stayed at Poleski and will plan to repeat again next year. The accommodations fit our family of eight adults perfectly and the hot tub is a great ending to a day of skiing.
The shuttle to take us the four blocks to the ski hill was timely and very friendly.
We highly recommend Poleski.

My wife and I have spent time at Poleski on several occassions, and it is always a wonderful stay. Even though there was the absence of snow, the weekend was still gorgeous. The combination of the fireplace, and the beautiful views out the windows, was so relaxing. And to top of the weekend stay, the last night there, it snowed. Being inside next to the fire with the most beautiful woman in the world, watching it snow; it doesn't get any better than that. I almost actually felt sorry for others not experiencing what we were enjoying! Many thanks to Powderhorn, and the owners of Poleski for a wonderful time.

Very well laid out floor plan allowed privacy and family gathering. Great fireplace. Sauna worked well but the low bench is too low.
We were disappointed that the hot tub was not working.
A relaxing and enjoyable place to stay.

Poleski was a great place to stay. The rooms are spacious and very accomodating. We loved having the main floor living area to hang out in, as well as being able to play pool downstairs. The scenery was great, and it was a very peaceful and relaxing stay. Definitely will be back.

Spent 9 night in Poleski from 6/7 to 6/16. This home has it all. We loved the location for exploring the area and having a nice quiet place to come back to. Having WiFI and a washer & Dryer were a great help. Watched progress on the building of the new Powderhorn Chalet. Explored all the local waterfalls. Thanks so much for making your home available for renting.

Enjoyed the best skiing in a long time while here. Too bad the main lodge burned down, thankfully no one was hurt. The Poleski unit was excellent! Enjoyed nice fires, shooting pool, hot tub and sauna.

The "Poleski" was absolutely perfect! My wife and I and 2 small children, My parents, Sister brother in law and her boys had an incredible time. It was a one of a kind experience, we had all of the comforts of home including Wi-fi, pool table and sauna. We played games and had a ball. We also explored the area quite a bit. I had forgotten how beautiful the area is! Thanks for an amazing vacation! We will be back!

Over the years I've stayed at many trailside units and did for one night of this stay. The hot up weather had me looking for an airconditioned unit. Poleski was suggested and we moved. The unit was excellent. It was new, air conditioned, had great facilities, had plenty of bedding for my family and was comparable, even nicer than many trailsides. It's great to see places being remodeled and updated. I will stay here again, winter/summer.

Bpla staff are so awesome, and so when they called me to tell me our rental had been changed, I really was not worried. I knew they'd make everthing all right. But I was wrong. They made it even better by getting us this phatty condo that far exceeded our expectations. Poleski is incredible...just take my word for it. We've been with you guys for years and Bpla and will always return. Thanks so much!!!

i really was skeptical about driving an estimated 7
hours to ski in the midwest. having a month or so
of winter left i want to get a ski trip in with a
couple of friends. since we dont have a private jet
or limitless funds we decided to drive to the
nearest place that would resemble a real vacation.
it took about 2 weeks for us to decide on the "big
pow" and my travel mates and i are very happy with
the outcome. the drive was more like 5 and 1/2
hours with more than a few reststops on the way, by
the way we came from downtown area of chicago,
sorry. our house was amazing, too much stuff to go
over, just think of everything you would want and
then add a pool table! the people were very nice
and the town of ironwood is charming. if you are
going to stay for a while, i would suggest
shopping at the local walmart. the dining is really
sub-par at best in town. our house had a newer
kitchen setup and a grill that we used all the
time. go and visit the u.p. and powderhorn, you'll
have a blast!
