Check-in day was a breeze. I called the rental company a day or so ahead to ask for an early check- in time and was told to pick up the key at anytime and go to the Dexter property. Great! We were pleasantly surprised of how nice the exterior and interior of the house looked compared to the pictures online. The heater was already on and we were provided a care package. Nice touch! The house provides a lot of natural light. The size of the house was good for our 8 person group. They provide 2 cots, which we did not use. The extra amenities were very helpful. Being able to use the washer and dryer was a big plus.
The location worked out for us because the activities we chose to do were close to the house. We had a great time outside behind house playing in the snow.
Suggestion: Add a DVD player downstairs.
Very nice house and location.

We were an extended family of 7 - from Grandparents to grandkids and enjoyed the experience.
A very large, very well stocked kitchen (though, why were the plates so large as well? Does the house belong to a family of small giants : )
The kitchen even included a lot of condiments so our salt, pepper and olive oil were not necessary, and they even had pancake mix and more.
Great view of the back garden?/woods? from kitchen and dinning area [nitpicking: guys, lift up the chandelier a little, my dad bumped his head at least 3 times before learning the lesson].
When we arrived we saw a hospitality kit with tooth paste, vitamin drinks and lots more in small packages. Very thoughtful.
Very clean - although leaving a somewhat sour note were leftover soaps in both showers.
A lot of towels but sheets for the extra bed were difficult to locate, and there was only the one set.
There is a washer and dryer but we weren't sure we were supposed to use them since they were not mentioned in the initial description.
Rooms are spacious and ...roomy.
The extra bed is the sofa across from the TV in the 2-level living room. It was brand new so we couldn't actually open it, but as soon as we called the rental office they sent over the handyman and he opened it (and cleaned the 3 feet of snow off the satellite dish).
Lots of kids games and scrap paper for drawing.
One note of caution - the upper railings are not enough for an interested 4 year old, mine just slipped through and he's not a skinny one.
Good location (we skied Boreal) with market and restaurant near by (did not sample, had an in-house non-skiing cook).
Overall, a recommended stay. We will personally like to return if we have enough company (maybe friends with one child?)
p.s. The photos don't do justice, the house and the surrounding area is even prettier, especially in the snow.
